ThatIcyPolarBear Posted November 24, 2022 Share Posted November 24, 2022 (edited) So this is my first time building a pc in general and I wanted to post the parts I chose and ask if there could be any problems. Pcpartpicker list: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/QjbkPX The Nas Is loosley based on LTT's video: Questions I have: 1. In the notes it sais I need usb header adapters. Do I actually need those and where would I get them? 2. I have no idea how big the included cooler of the cpu is. And because this is quite a small case I'm not sure it will fit and I don't know where to check the dimensions of the cooler. Should i get another cooler like a passive one ore something else? 3. In the video linus uses intel optane as a cache. But it's quite harde to get. Can I just use any NVME m.2 ssd? If you have any other notes or advice please tell them to me (like changing a part or something), i would greatly aprreciate your help and thank you for taking the time if you decide to help me. EDIT: Forgot to say what I will be using it for. - NAS ofcource - Plex, that's also why I wanted an IGPU (for being able to transcode for only 1 user) - VPN, via wireguard - Minecraft / Terraria server - Some other things Becuase I'm going to run so many things at the same time I chose a cpu with a 'high' core count I have also been told that my cpu is overpriced so I'm already going to look for a better one (and motherboard because of socket) tommorow.
