DIY advice

  • Looking for some advice on a DIY build

    Previously had OMV running on a Gen 1 WD Mycloud

    System fried during recent electrical problem (no big deal as i didnt really have anything on that was not recoverable from elsewhere)


    Decide to try OMV5 on an ASUS PN50 to see how it would handle docker containers (Jellyfin, tvheadend, pyload, home assistant)

    Working well so now thinking of building a system.


    Looking for as low power usage as I can get but powerful enough to run the dockers mentioned.

    Settled on an inwin MS04 case so system need to be mini itx


    Cant seem to get any embedded CPU mini itx motherboards in Australia (such as J4125 onboard)


    Was wondering if anyone has used a Pentium Gold G6400 ?


    Suggested build is below


    Motherboard (ASRock H510M-ITX/ac Mini ITX LGA1200 Motherboard)
    CPU (Intel Pentium Gold G6400 4 GHz Dual-Core)
    CPU Cooler (ARCTIC Alpine 12 LP)
    Case (InWin MS04-01 Mini-ITX Server Chassis w/315W PSU)
    Memory 8GB (GeIL 8GB Kit (2x4GB) DDR4 EVO SPEAR C16 2400MHz)
    SSD 250GB (Crucial P2 250GB NVMe M.2 SSD)

  • This is similar to my home build as below and very happy with it.

    Inwin MS04 case with 315 W PSU

    ASUS Prime H310i-Plus R2.0 board

    Four port PCI-E SATA card

    8GB Kingston DDR4

    Intel Pentium Coffee Lake G5400 CPU

    Samsung Evo M.2 256GB OS drive (28 GB partitioned for OS)

    4x4TB WD Red NAS drives - UnionFS pool

    Seagate 5TB USB drive - SnapRAID parity

    1x1TB Seagate HD

    1x300GB Toshiba HD

    Seagate 2TB USB drive

  • I have fitted 4x3.5 and 3 2.5 drives in the case. Have a look here:

  • My board has an M.2 slot so may as well use it for the OS they are too expensive and low capacity to load up with movies etc.

    I had a Pentium Gold G6400 with 8GB of RAM for a while with OMV and it worked great. Very similar to the one you propose. I was able to get Intel quick sync to work with jellyfin and handbrake. It is a powerful enough system for a NAS and consumption is content.

    Intel core i3 3225, 8GB RAM, SnapRaid and UnionFS, 1 parity disk (5TB), 4 data disks (5TB + 5TB + 4TB + 4TB), 1 60GB SSD disk for boot, 1 120GB SSD disk for Docker and KVM

    I DO NOT SPEAK ENGLISH. I translate with google, sorry if sometimes you don't understand me well:)
