Hello all. I've been doing a lot of reading and I am wanting to build myself an Unraid server for Plex Media Servier and maybe to host a couple of Minecraft servers for the wife and our nieces/nephews. I'm sure I'll eventually run something along the lines of Home Assistant and maybe a VM just for tinkering with but nothing super intensive. I am currently running an ancient Synology NAS that is vastly underpowered to do anything other be a file storage. I know the smart/thrifty way to do things is to purchase used gear and save money, plus I don't have the rack space for an enterprise server nor do I want the noise/energy consumption of one. I have been pricing out parts that I'll list below and would love any input on my list. I currently have an Antec Twelve-hundred case I'll be using as that has 12 bays I can use, and I'll look into getting some of those 4in3 or 5in3 bays to fit more drives.
Budget for parts I don't have is about $600:
Motherboard: Gigabyte B460 HD3 LGA 1200 ($120)
CPU: Intel Core i5-10400 ($160)
Power supply: Rosewill Hive 550W ($85)
USB: Sandisk 32GB Cruzer Fir USB 2.0 ($7)
Memory: Corsair Vengeance LPX 32GB 4x8GB ($151)
SSD: Reuse current Intel 500GB SSDs for cache and metadata (currently have)
Power cables: Cable Matters power splitter ($12/2 pack)
Shucked drives: WD 8 and 10TB drives (currently have, starting with 4-5 & 1 parity, would like expandability to add more drives)
SAS/HBA: Not sure, input needed
Case: Antec Twelve-hundred ATX case
Add-on drive bays: 4in3 or 5in3 5.25" bays (input needed)
I know with the shucking and a normal ATX power supply, I'll have to use some kapton tape to cover the first 3 pins. If anyone has any input on the 4in3 or 5in3 that will fit my case, that would be greatly appreciated.
**EDIT** Added more information based on the pinned post about new build threads. Apologizes for not adding it in original post.
