gi

yes you can

usually 1 p400 can control all 8 HDDs, using 2 cables so each connects 1 channel to the backplane

so what you can do is get 2 p400 controller and use a cable from p400 and connect the backplane

check page 73
http://bizsupport1.austin.hp.com/bc/docs/support/SupportManual/c00710359/c00710359.pdf

so see 1 controller supporting all 8 HDDs since that controller connects both channel in the backplane

just get 2 p400 and use 1 channel from each p400
