My new NAS: Odroid HC2 and Seagate Ironwolf 12TB.

    • I use this psu:

      It provides up to 20 A. It should be enough for 7-8 HC2 starting up together with the switch, the wifi mesh unit and the fan. I estimated 12V 2A, 24W peak power use per HC2. There are plenty of 5A or 10A similar power supplies. Currently 6 HC2 are running from the psu, together with the switch, mesh and fan. Works fine and since there is no fan in the psu it is completely silent.

      I also bought some power cords that I cut off, crimped together in groups, and used between the psu and the HC2s. A lot of 12V cables...

      I have measured total 70-74 W power use from the wall when everything is running with low load. When booting and spinning up the drives, or under high load the power use is higher.
