Plex Server

Part Reviews

CPU

Excellent processor for. y plex server. Is able to handle 11 transcodes at a time. Probably can do more. power consumption is very low. It does the job.

CPU Cooler

Love this cooler. Keeps my processor cool at high loads. Last I look 9 plex transcodes had the processor working and temps fluctuated between 65c to 75c Very quite and does the job.

Motherboard

I purchased this board because its the only ITX board I could find with 6 SATA ports, Dual Lan Ports for teaming, and a M.2 port . Everything I needed for my plex server. Teaming helps with streaming within my house. Not sure how much of an effect it has on family and friends who connect to my server. 6 SATA ports allows me to connect 6 drives. Using M.2 drive as the boot drive. And the PCIE port has a 1.5 TB PCIE drive in the slot. I haven had any issues at all with this board for my Plex build. Asrock did very well.

Memory

Great Memory. Created a RAM disk for Plex Transcoding. Works perfect. Does the job

Case

This case is absolutely the best case I ever had. I had it for years now and its done the job perfectly for what I needed it for. Its able to hold 6 drives. 5x 3.5 drives 1x 2.5 drive. Nice and sturdy. Handle is great for taking the PC with me on travel if need be. Very light weight.
