I currently have a NAS and plane to operate some big changes.
I run with a RAID 5 of 3*3TB and I'd like to add 3*4TB but I need first to change everything (my current NAS was mainly built upon an old PC, hot and far to be quiet).
This was what I was planning:
- case: Fractal Design Node 304
- alim: Be Quiet Pure Power 10 CM - 700W (I have a good price, cheaper than 500W, but will it fit in the case?)
- RAM: I hesitate between 4 or 8 with my current setup then double it when I buy the 3*4TB (so 8 or 16 in a near future)?
But I don't know which motherboard / CPU to choose. It's mainly for Samba / ftp file sharing, and maybe some plugins like Transmission, Plex, Owncloud and maybe some backup tools.
Is it possible to find something around 120/150€ (MB + CPU) ?
I was also wondering if we can find some MB with 6 sata or will I have to use a PCIe card?
thanks in advance!
