Recommended Posts

I plan on building an Unraid server and just wanted to double check with the community to see if what I was buying were good choices.

 

Case:

Cooler Master MasterBox NR400 Micro-ATX

CPU:

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07XTQZJ28/?coliid=I25X9CF5AKX7IA&colid=IFWUX9YLS7WC&psc=1&ref_=lv_ov_lig_dp_it

Power Supply:

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B077BQ76TP/?coliid=I23PS50COOT5N3&colid=IFWUX9YLS7WC&psc=1&ref_=lv_ov_lig_dp_it

 

Cache Drive:

Was planning on getting a NVMe drive not sure if I should go with 512GB or 1TB

 

Western Digital 500GB WD Blue SN550 NVMe Internal SSD - Gen3 x4 PCIe 8Gb/s, M.2 2280, 3D NAND, Up to 2,400 MB/s - WDS500G2B0C

https://www.amazon.com/Blue-SN550-1TB-NVMe-Internal/dp/B07YFF3JCN?ref_=Oct_d_otopr_d_1292116011&pd_rd_w=OTuKw&pf_rd_p=a304ecd4-a57b-4669-aaa3-36ed2882b274&pf_rd_r=AXPJCG74SJ63H65W12C7&pd_rd_r=d3bdde00-a37d-45c9-bb87-b1903aeab679&pd_rd_wg=YtHnI&pd_rd_i=B07YFFX5MD&th=1

 

Western Digital 1TB WD Blue SN550 NVMe Internal SSD - Gen3 x4 PCIe 8Gb/s, M.2 2280, 3D NAND, Up to 2,400 MB/s - WDS100T2B0C

https://www.amazon.com/Blue-SN550-1TB-NVMe-Internal/dp/B07YFFX5MD?ref_=Oct_d_otopr_d_1292116011&pd_rd_w=OTuKw&pf_rd_p=a304ecd4-a57b-4669-aaa3-36ed2882b274&pf_rd_r=AXPJCG74SJ63H65W12C7&pd_rd_r=d3bdde00-a37d-45c9-bb87-b1903aeab679&pd_rd_wg=YtHnI&pd_rd_i=B07YFFX5MD&th=1

 

Other than the hard drive and flash drive am I forgetting anything?

 

Was planning this server mainly for photo backup/browsing via a docker container (https://github.com/photoview/photoview), jellyfin docker, and possibly an NVR docker container (frigate)

 

Thanks for any advice!

added model numbers

Power supply looks a little light. The rated numbers rarely tell an accurate tale of what you can expect in real life.

 

Since power stability effects every aspect of the server and a bad one can kill everything attached to it, I tend to shop on the high end for power supplies, and it's critical to find current recommendations from people who have actually tested the specific model in question. There has been some hinky stuff going on with power supplies recently, involving some big names.

 

How many 3.5 hard drives are you planning on running?

Pls avoid this PSU, you should check user comment, no reason to buy PSU don't have APFC, still have 110-220 voltage switch, very low tech and low end. Problem not on how many watts, it is about quality problem.

 

There are some much much better choice @ Amazon 45 USD ( 50% off, suggest order ASAP )

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B084RGH8W4/ref=ox_sc_act_title_2?currency=USD&language=en_US&psc=1&smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER

 

* SILENT, LONG-LASTING 135MM FLUID-DYNAMIC BEARING FAN WITH ECO MODE

The ultra-quiet 135mm Fluid-Dynamic Bearing fan becomes silent when coupled with EVGA ECO mode to turn off the fan in low to medium loads. The larger fan and carefully tuned profile creates a quieter experience than the B3 power supplies. *

 

* EFFICIENCY AND REGULATION DESIGNED FOR THE MODERN PC

Featuring an LLC Resonant design + DC to DC converter, EVGA B5 power supplies are up to 89% efficient - well above 80 Plus Bronze requirements. Moreover, the B5 power supplies are designed with modern standards, including ATX V2.52, for performance and stability. *

 

* 100% Japanese Capacitors *
