One way to find out is to plug 4TB drive and take a look. Another is to
ask one who has the same controller to do the same for you. I am going to
play with similar on one of my machine, but it sounds like my controller
is different: in my case lspci gives me:

01:00.0 RAID bus controller: LSI Logic / Symbios Logic MegaRAID SAS 1078
(rev 04
        Subsystem: Dell PERC 6/i Integrated RAID Controller

Sorry, can't answer the question, only what I would do - just my poor
experientalist's approach...
