I'm looking for a hardware solution for a small home NAS.
The requirements are:
*most silent possible (fanless)
*idle power 2W or less
* reasonable speed for data access at home
*2 drives of 1TB
*RAM of 4GB should be good (preferably DDR4)
Currently I'm loooking at coupling
Odroid C4 (with Gbit eth to router)
2 SSD drives (with two Cables USB 3.0 to SATA III)
The new odroid C4 as a new Cortex A55 quad core, RAM DDR4 but lacks SATA interfaces hence have to use USB cables.
Would this be a bottleneck?
I could go for an older but proven Cortex A53 based SBC board.
But I haven't seen a good SBC that handles temperature without fan well and has both SATA3 interfaces and DDR4 RAM.
What would you suggest differently?
