  1. Hi guys. I've been a very long time lurker here, since 2011, but have never pulled the trigger on a build, but I've finally decided nows the time. I've tried to do a lot of research for my upcoming unraid build, but I'm struggling to make a decision on which CPU to go with for the build. I know of course Intel CPUs with an iGPU have quicksync which allow for hardware acceleration for plex and is very power efficient etc. If AMD and Intel CPUs of a similar performance bracket (not taking into account the performance benefit of quicksync) were a similar price, then of course I would
  2. Hi guys, I was just wondering what you think about this drive , http://www.amazon.co.uk/SEAGATE-ST31000524AS-Barracuda-7200-12-Internal/dp/B004R01RUQ/ref=sr_1_16?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1305053989&sr=1-16 and http://www.seagate.com/www/en-us/products/desktops/barracuda_hard_drives/ Sorry if there have already been topics about this, I had a check. Its a Seagate Barracuda ST31000524AS , 7200rpm , 32mb cache. Would these drives be good for an unRAID server? How would they compare to WD10EARS, performance and reliability wise? Also note the price, £28 from the other sellers
