I have been given an old computer:
Chassis: Fractal Define R4
Processor: i7-950 (Standard fan going to upgrade to probably a Noctua NH-D14)
Ram: 3x2GB CMX6GX3M3A1600CM
PSU: Corsair TX 650
Graphics Card GeForce GTX570 (Going to replace won't need such a good one on a server)
System SSD Samsung EVO 250GB
I have 6 Sata2 3Gb/s 0-5
I have 2 Gsata Sata2 3Gb/s 7-8 (can be used in raid config)
I have 2 Gsata Sata 3 6Gb/s
I was looking att Techno Dad life's video about snapraid and Unionfs...
I have thought that at the moment I won't be using a lot of the space but have 6 x 4TB reds.
I was going to add probably a 6TB or 8TB drive for parity....
This server will mainly be used for films, and music....also looking at Techno Dad life's video about Nextcloud
Is there a flaw in my thinking?
I have, as you know ZFS on a couple of servers but thought that this would do for a media server?
Thanks as always!
