  1. eBay used for CPU is your friend. That's what they go for. As for moving to DDR4, I think I'll hold off for now and maybe plan that for the future at another time.
  2. Would there be benefit to going towards a Motherboard and RAM combo that's DDR4? I'm thinking for the possibility of long term longevity. Thoughts?

  4. Hi all, So I'm looking into building a UnRaid server, hopefully in the next 6-12 months. My primary use would be for a Plex server. I'm a Mac guy though at times might want to run a Windows VM to run certain software. I'm not a big gamer but wouldn't mind the ability to run some game emulators for nostalgia. I'd like to eventually build this out to be 100TB+ but I'll work towards that. My thinking is that I will have most every movie or tv show I'd like to watch (mostly above 7.0 rating on IMDB). I might let some friends use the server but it at the moment wouldn't be more than 3 or so people. I have a 4k TV so being able to have 4k content would be awesome though obviously it would take time to acquire. That said I'd like the ability to from a processor stand point. As for the basis of the server, I based most of it off this build guide https://forums.serverbuilds.net/t/guide-anniversary-2-0-snafu-server-needs-a-friggin-upgrade/1075. That said I didn't quite like the tower case options so I picked a different case. Also for whatever reason in PC PartPicker the motherboard wouldn't carry over so I pasted it in. Part of me wonders if I'm ok using that motherboard or if I should instead have only 1 processor and have my next build in the future be a rack build with dual processors. The drives I picked as I will upgrade them later, that said I'm cool with buying used drives or shucking drives. The price shown I expect to be slightly lower as I'd be buying stuff on eBay. Retail price of this build would far exceed $1k. Don't mind saving some money going used on stuff. Other cases I'd consider would be the Fractal Design R7 XL as well. Any suggestions, comments, etc appreciated.

  5. Why 2 different sized cache drives? Also is 2 parity drives needed? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. To start this off, what will be your HD’s? You said you’d replace the 3x3tb with a 10tb and keep the 16x4tb right? Will you buy more 8 or 10tb drives? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  13. What are you using the 2 14tb drives for? A buddy of mine has a 12tb and for me I’d want to make sure I’d get a deal or shuck them to make it worth my money. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Why the i7 CPU instead of an E5 or something? Are you trying to use it as a media server and main machine? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
