File Server Hardware Update

Following the reuse of most of the parts of the previous file server for the new Plex client PC, I decided to upgrade the parts for the file server. I wanted a processor that would have enough CPU power to handle Plex, and a motherboard with enough connections to handle my need for storage.

The updated server has now the following parts :

Cost: 900 $

My setups consists of one hard drive for the operating system, and 5 for storage purposes.

For the storage, I have one hard drive dedicated to store the backups of all the computers we possess, and four hard drives in RAID1 for the files.

The server is on idle most of the time, and consumes 36W idle.
