I have finalized my hardware list and feedback is appreciated.
Case: Fractal node 304 (wow, nobody else uses that
RAM: 16GB DDR4
Mobo: AsRock H370M
Cooler: Arctic Freezer 12 Co (semi passive)
PSU: SilverStone SFX 300W (semi passive)
NVME: Corsair MP510 240GB
HDDs: 2x 8TB WD Red
I want to use one HDD for data and the other one for parity. The NVME is for the OS, but will be partioned and also serve as a highspeed datastore.
Should I use SnapRAID for the parity or just sync the drives daily with RSYNC or is there a simpler option to sync the data. I don't want to use RAID1, because I only want one drive working to save power and noise.
