NAS Server build used for network backups, PLEX server, Network shares, occasional game server.
That PSU seems kinda iffy for 24/7 operation.
You are 100% correct.
It was what the PC shop I was working for at the time stocked, so, dirt cheap. It's done well for 5+ years of 24/7, but now the fan is failing.
It is getting replaced with my old HX850 soon (yes, massively overkill, but, It's what I've got!).
I really like these NAS builds, I'm planning to build one to store my movies, songs and as a network backup location.
do you really need 16gb for NAS and Plex use? Also does the CPU handle the transcoding alright
cooler not shown on pics!
only needs a gpu and it's ready to game
It's not a gaming machine. :/
