Upgrade project- suggestions


Recommended Posts

Currently my Unraid server I built back in 2013 is on edge, the disk are starting to fail. The parity disk is reporting errors all the time, and the cache disk is close to death.




CPU: Intel I3-4130

MB: Gigabyte H87-D3H-CF

RAM: 16 GB of DDR3


Storage: 4 x - WD40EFRX from 2013 4TB each - also using a old ass Synology from 2015 for another 16TB on it, again nearing end of life.


Wife is pushing towards a Asustor Lockerstor 6 Gen2 AS6706T, and I am bit unsure if I want to DIY it again. 


Biggest question, is should I just leave the hardware as is, pull drives one at a time to replace them with something like 12TB ironwolf, and leave the hardware.


Or should I get a NAS device less headache as this server is just a nightmare on time in the past year with issues, or replace all the hardware/ drives?
