Hello. I am new here! First of all congratulations for the awesome forum
I´ve been thinking about creating my own Nas for a couple of months now, and after reading and reading a lot. I have decided i need the following specs:
Really Cheap about 600€ (752$) including 4 2TB drives.
As ill be using FreeNas as O.S. I don't need a boot drive; it runs from a USB stick.
Will be doing Raid with soft or with MOBO built in Hardware. So all the processing will go to the CPU.
Mobo with at least 6 SATA Ports
Low consuming (Will be on about 12Hours a Day)
I´ve allready selected some components such as:
PSU: Antec EarthWatts Green 380W
HDD: 4x Seagate Barracuda 2TB Sata 3 or 4x WD Red NAS Edition About 400€
That leaves me with 200€-250€ (250$-300$) for a:
CPU (Amd or Intel?)
Thanks for your help!
