Hello, this is my first server build and I’m not very familiar with the hardware side of computers so I was hoping someone could look over my planned build and see if they have any recommended changes or if it all looks good.
I am currently running Plex + sonarr, radarr, etc on an old gaming laptop with an external drive attached via usb. With my new build I’d like to have more storage drives while keeping a smallish form factor so the 6-Bay mini-itx seemed like a good choice. I plan on running UnRaid with the new build.
In addition to running Plex I was hoping to run a small Minecraft and Factorio server if possible as well as run basic video editing software for my GoPro videos that way I can store and edit the video on the same machine.
Since I only have at most 2 or 3 transcodes at once I am planning on using the recommended mini-itx build guide with a cpu upgrade to the i7-3770S. I am also wondering if I would need to upgrade to 16GB of RAM for any reason and if it would be worth it to go with the 4 Port SATA3 card to do the video editing on a VM using an extra SSD.
Once again, I’m new the the hardware side of computers so if this build is way underpowered for what I am trying to accomplish or I am missing anything important please let me know.
