Hello !

 

I'll order the parts at the end of the week :

 

Case : ZALMAN MS1000-HS2

HDD case : ZALMAN ZM-HDR1

MB : INTEL DH61BE Bear Point

CPU : INTEL Pentium G620

RAM : KINGSTON ValueRAM KVR1333D3E9SK2/2GI (2x1GB)

PSU : probably my old one

HDD : Sammy HD204UI

 

Do you see any major flaws or incompatibilities ?

 

Thanks a lot !

What size array do you plan to have?  PSU problems can be one of the most frustrating components to troubleshoot.

What is your old PSU? Single Rail?  Max Amps?

What is your intended usage for unRAID?

 

 

Here is the Bear Point Spec sheet for everyone else:

It has the Intel 82579V Gig Card...which is only supported in >unRAID 5.0 Beta-v3

I'm currently running out of space with my Syno (5.4 Tb). I'm planning on filling the Zalman case with up to 9 x 2 Tb. Once filled, I could switch to 3 Tb drives or get 5-in-3 cases...

 

As for the PSU, I have no idea but I should probably get one of those 500W Corsair PSU, which is no big deal.

 

I don't see the Intel NIC as a problem if it is supported by the latest Unraid builds. I think this MB has a great value for its price.

 

Oh and usage, well it's just for streaming Blu-ray's mainly. I'm not planning to run lots of apps in the background
