Not sure if this is the right place or not, but I’m new around here so please correct me.
Based off the current NAS Killer 4.0 guide, I came up with the following build:
|Case||Rosewill 4U RSV-L4000||$141.16|
|Motherboard||Supermicro - X9SCM (Socket LG 1155)||$65.00|
|CPU||Intel Xeon E3-1230 V2||$50.00|
|RAM||16 GB (2x 8GB) ECC Unbuffered DDR3-1600||$101.75|
|CPU Cooler||Arctic Freezer 12||$20.00|
|Power Supply||Seasonic G SSR-550RM 550W PSU||$71.00|
|SATA Cables||6 pack SATA cables||$7.99|
|Quiet Fans||Arctic P12 120mm fans, 5-pack||$27.99|
- I want to run Freenas with ZFS with two vdevs (each vdev with 2x 8TB WD shucked drives)
- My goal is long term home storage and archival. I want the NAS to be functional and up-gradable 5+ years from now. Use case includes a medium-light amount of virtualization (for my work) plus a few quality of life/anti-Google Drive apps like Nextcloud, Syncthing, etc. A few other home server apps. No plex/media streaming/encoding required.
- I like the 4U case because I have a small rack at home
- With this build I would velcro the ssd into place (there must be space?) so I have 8 3.5 bays, 4 now, 4 later.
- Will use the onboard SATA to start, then add an LSI SAS card later when the time comes.
- Noise is a concern of mine. Would gladly drop an extra $50 to reduce the noise.
- Not 100% sure on the heatsink?
