I am gearing up to build an NAS Killer using the board expected to be used when it becomes official. The below is what I am currently gathering for parts. The PSU is one I picked up last year on the cheap.
Not listed below are the 6x WD Red 6TB NAS Hard Drive - WD60EFRX that I am pulling out of my Synology NAS and moving to the server.
Current All in cost (not including 6TB drives is $988.07 before tax
I will update this post as things develop.
Supermicro X10SL7F Motherboard High Performance LGA 1150!
I built it a few weeks ago. It’s running great! The bios is a breeze to go through and having all of these ports available for so many drives is great. It’s currently filled with 42TB from 8 shucked drives and it’s sitting in an Enthoo Pro case (which I’m super happy with as well!) My cable management is horrid so I don’t think it’s picture worthy but this thing is more beast than supermodel anyways.
I’ve started on this build, but I think my memory choice is suspect. When I power on my system, I’m getting to the Supermicro “system initializing” screen with an error code of 15. Can anyone confirm if I went the wrong direction with my RAM choice?
Thanks for the advice, I reached out to SMC and they suggested a few different troubleshooting steps. It turns out I had a very tiny spec of what I think was thermal paste blocking just one of the CPU pins/pads. I cleaned and reinstalled the CPU and I’m now posting fine and the system have successfuly loaded ESXi.
