  2. Thanks man, Ive fitted this PSU in before with another motherboard. Can someone please tell me if the ethernet controller for the Asus P8H77-I motherboard will work? Realtek® 8111F, 1 x Gigabit LAN Controller(s)
  3. Hi Guys, Spent a month now researching various options for my first NAS. From Synology, QNAP, Thecus even HP Microserver. The obvious choice for me is UnRAID because of its flexibility. My media library has really outgrown itself and I'm hoping you guys can help evaluate my build. •What is your budget? $500 (without drives) •How many drives do you want your server to be able to support and how much capacity do you need? 6 Drives (11-13TB in total) •Is expandability important to you? My long term goal is to have a protected nas so I dont lose my media, 14TB is enough for me. •Are you interested in running any unRAID Add Ons (see here)? Plex Media Server Couchpotato Transmission Airvideo Server •Do you want to run green/low power drives or faster 7200 rpm drives? WD RED's & SEAGATE GREEN's •Do you have any spare parts laying around that you would like to apply towards your build? Antec Earthwatts 430 PSU LIAN LI PC-Q08B CASE •If you already have parts in mind, please oh pretty please post links to them so that we don't have to look them up. Complete part list: ASUS P8H77-I $125 (6 x SATA Connections, 2x6G / 4x3G) - Uses Realtek 8111F LAN??? http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=20017 i3 3225 $135 (Integrated HD4000) http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=21886 Corsair 8GB $49 http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=18373 WD RED 3TB $178 (Already own 1 x WD RED 3TB + 2 x Seagate Greens 2TB + 1 x Seagate Greens 1TB) UnRAID Plus $69 Total $556 Already own Antec Earthwatts 430 PSU LIAN LI PC-Q08B CASE So I guess the question is, hows my build? and will it be able to do everything I require it to do?
