  1. oh sweet, much to read the more i read, the more i love unraid right now
  2. going for this board, or the me4a785t-m whats your opinion guys? whats the difference between these 2? any update on the next level for this board?
  3. ok, only level 1 tested, how about the other levels?
  4. Can you tell me what the difference is between asus m4a78L-M and m4a785t-m? Both support wol? For now, i dont see any reason to pick the m4a785t-m instead of the cheapier m4a78l-m
  5. For that I recommend a dual core you like a 240e or 250e, so you always that extra power when you need it. When they go idle they will not use more than an 140. When you use unraid 4.5.6 rc3 you can use 'modprob powernow-k8' to turn on te power saveing of the cpu (you can add it to the go script, but now where going a little deeper in to unraid) ok thx, script thing is chinese for now, and i wont look deeper into it cause i want to make the server first Possibilities mainboard: Asus M4A78L-M for 55 euro Asus M4A785T-M for 67.5 euro (i dont see the difference with the first asus?) Biostar TA785G3HD but impossible to find lol
  6. i dunno if i need lots of applications? This is what i want now: All data should be accesible for each user (even playing movies from the central data place from 2 different places at the same data should be able to run with hesitation, ex: me watching movies in front of tv, and my kid upstairs watching his movie from the same place at the same time) - should be resistant to hard disk failure - easy to expand, (4x2tb will do for now, but there it should be easy upgradeable and quite cheap ) - Not too expensive in buying (in steps) - Very important : it should be a low energy costing system when its running - Gigabit speed for transferring large files (movies) - FTP server - Streaming media server - Possibility to download (not sure if im gonna download upstairs, unpack and then move the file to the data storage or download from the data storage place, unpack it there and stuff... i dunno how you can see then if its corrupt...) - Mail server I dunno if i need more app. Maybe once i'm in to it, i see more helpfull applications About the link you gave me.. i'm really interested in a low energy CPU so it should be a sempron 140 or 145 or an x2 240e or 250e
  7. 1) AMD Semprom 140 or X2 250 Intel Celeron 430, Celeron E3000 or Atom D510 (get a faster one when you trancoding) 2) Yeah i just when for a stock intel board I could get for cheap and it had 6 sata 3) if your going for amd then make sure it is am3 4) I mean nic = onboard Network card on the motherboard, make sure its not Atheros brand cause that one is not supported but check the motherboard topic to see what people are using what the problem could be and what the fixes are btw what is you media player ? htpc, NMT or a console ? about 1) i was looking at the amd sempron 140 other im interested in is the amd sempron 145 (noticeable next to the 140?) or the amd athlon II x2 240e (noticeable next to the sempron 140?) or the amd athlon II x2 250e your opinions ! (no intel for me please) I'm using a dune base 3.0 player
  8. how do i know if its a low power amd or intel? biostar truly is hard to get here thinking of motherboard, should i go for am2 or am3? whats onboard nic? you mean onboard graphical card?
  9. So which of those 3 would you chose? (other people may answer too)
  10. Well, i inspected all those pages before Nice pages !! Looking closer to the case: I had these 3 in my mind (is it correct to start chosing the case before everything else, or do you start with the motherboard?) - Cooler Master centurion 590 for 67euro - Zalman MS1000-HS2 for 138 euro - Sharkoon rebel 9 economy 42 euro (or value 53 euro) i dunno if i need the hot swaps... it is handy though...( in my dune 3.0 base i have a hot swap place for a hdd right?, just push it in?) is there a possibility to build hot swaps in the cooler master or sharkoon?
  11. Hello, Originally i was planning to buy a Synology NAS, but when looking deeper into the matter, i came to this place... First thing i want to ask is that if this is all kinda easy to setup, im no newbie in setting up pcs, but i am to "linux" Anway, I've been reading a lot here on the forum and on the internet, before making this step. What i want exactly: - All data should be accesible for each user (even playing movies from the central data place from 2 different places at the same data should be able to run with hesitation, ex: me watching movies in front of tv, and my kid upstairs watching his movie from the same place at the same time) - should be resistant to hard disk failure - easy to expand, (4x2tb will do for now, but there it should be easy upgradeable and quite cheap ) - Not too expensive in buying (in steps) - Very important : it should be a low energy costing system when its running - Gigabit speed for transferring large files (movies) - FTP server - Streaming media server - Possibility to download (not sure if im gonna download upstairs, unpack and then move the file to the data storage or download from the data storage place, unpack it there and stuff... i dunno how you can see then if its corrupt...) Another thing i want to make clear is that my complete setup should be in stepss so: step 1: buying hardware to make a server for 3 bays with room to expand step 2 (might come close since i already got 2tb full of movies) going from 3 bay to 6 bay (and buying unraid plus) step 3: going from 6 bay to 10,12 or 15 drive (not sure about how many i want, but 15 is way the limit) Setup and prices is WITHOUT harddisks, and system should be a low energy running system My budget for step 1 is 300 euro max 350 euro (i live in belgium, can buy in netherlands too) Can you guys be so gentle to help me... Finding a nice expandable good case, motherbord and cpu and stuff Thanks in advance !
