Pentium and a Z87? I mean the board looks super sexy but...

Why dislike it? It's a NAS and a server, What's the problem with that? A pretty expensive NAS though.

the OP's choice of a CPU/Motherboard combo is probably what's driving the ratings down. then again, not many consumer ITX boards have 6 SATA ports on the board itself.

Meh I guess it that. You have to get a 100 Dollar Mobo to get raid features if that's what you want. Could've gotten one of the Gigabyte z97/z87 wifi boards a bit cheaper though.

Can someone explain to me the purpose of a NAS.

Network Attached Storage. Simply, you just raid a ton of hard drives into a big single drive (or you could just use a single drive or independent drives) and then attach it/them to your network so you can access it from any computer on said network.

How is this performing so far? I wanna build a home server/NAS for Teamspeak and some files and that Pentium has my eye. I'm just wondering if there is any voice stutter or other issues. Care to comment?

Good build! Looking to do something similar to this for my own NAS / Media Server in the same Bitfenix case. Only thing I'd change is the mobo by replacing it with the H87I-Plus to cut cost there.

The case is unnecessary The motherboard is unnecessary Also now matter how much people hail the bitfenix prodigy, I see it as the biggest waste of desk space

Why the 5400 RPM drives in a NAS?

WD Reds are designed for NAS situations due to their cool and quiet operation, among other things.

Thank you for the info

why would you need 9TB's?

DonutDefector 1 Build 1 point 10 months ago

He said it was for NAS storage.

Oh didn't read that part lol.

A Pentium? Seems a little under powered in the CPU section.I'm not sure about game servers but don't they need a little beefier CPUs?

Scallawagers -4 points 10 months ago

Overkill on the storage! Dang!

TechKat 3 points 10 months ago

For a NAS? Nonsense.

bchurch 1 point 10 months ago

For network storage, its definitely not overpowered.

Apparently you don't have a lot of files to store. unRaid let's you go upwards of 92TB on one machine. drool
