    • New Nas Build to replace a 7 Year old PC as NAS

      I've currently a second NAS wich run on a Asus P8Z77WS Mainboard, currently 7 Years old, i think its now time to replace ( Hardware still running but thinking about energy consumption and lifecycle).
      So i'm evaluating a newer Build:
      - Mainboard: Asus PRIME H370-PLUS ( asus.com/Motherboards/PRIME-H370-PLUS/specifications/ )
      - CPU Core i3-8100 3.6 GHz
      - RAM DDR4-RAM 2666 MHz 1x 16 GB
      - Maindisk for OS: SSD 860 EVO M.2 2280 250 GB
      - Case and Powersupply ( where used from another Build )
      - Main usage: to start off with 3x 6TB as storage for some PC's as a sharing plattform, also as a media server, maybe some video en/decoding and finally to run some docker or VM's

      I know, maybe this plattform configuration is a little bit oversized for my use cases, but i'ts more efficent than the 7 year old hardware and if the system lives same longtime as the old, then the money is not the problem. What do you think about it ? Are there any better or affordable builds which offer the same performance ?
    • Ok. Then that system should be ok but if you shouldn't need such a large OS disk (unless you plan on leaving dockers on it).
