  1. Hello; I would like to build a NAS with at leas 18-20 HDDs. I though in Xpenology because I had a Synology, but when I built a couple of xpenology machines into using spare parts of my old PCs the performance was awesome. My next project it´s to build a NAS with a high storage capacity, so I will appreciate the advice. It´s basically for multimedia storage (not RAID) and to use PLEX with 2 or 3 users. I was thinking in maybe this motherboard and CPU and upgrade the sata ports with this https://www.amazon.es/MSI-B250-PC-MATE-PRO/dp/B01NCSE38Q?psc=1&SubscriptionId=AKIAJFKHIH5FQXYBHOQQ&tag=astr32-21&linkCode=xm2&camp=2025&creative=165953&creativeASIN=B01NCSE38Q https://www.amazon.es/Intel-Procesador-pentium-lga1151-3mb-graphics/dp/B01N7U18M1?SubscriptionId=AKIAJFKHIH5FQXYBHOQQ&tag=astr32-21&linkCode=xm2&camp=2025&creative=165953&creativeASIN=B01N7U18M1 https://www.amazon.es/Syba-SI-PEX40064-Port-Tarjeta-Verde/dp/B00AZ9T3OU/ref=sr_1_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1529420185&sr=1-1&keywords=4+sata+port Or maybe its a too simple configuration? Thank you
  2. Thank you for all your advices, but after a couple of weeks of research, I think the most convenient it´s something like that, a micro-ATX motherboard. https://www.scan.co.uk/products/asus-n3 ... d-graphics The small form factor and the 3 PCI slots are a real up for a future expansion with sata cards like http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.as ... 6816101792 I will buy a normal and cheap case https://www.amazon.es/NOX-NXCBAYVXW-ord ... +NXCBAYVXW Maybe AllGamer is right about the classic MOBO with CPU, but for something fast, easy and simple... an integrated "all in one non expensive" motherboard it´s a real interesting option. Like all others, time to compare and choose it´s the thing we don´t have so much As berwhale says, I´m expecting with this MOBO viewtopic.php?f=2&t=16071 but I think it´s have several lacks: .- Only 1 slot for RAM .- NO PCI slots . 7 SATA ports with Marwell 88se9235 and 5 SATA ports with Marwell 88se9705... I don´t know if this last one it´s fully compatile Thank you both of you!
  3. depends if... Chipset: ASMedia ASM1062 + 2x JMicron JMB575 ...is supported by Xpenology. If it uses SATA port multiplication, then it almost certainly won't work. Damm... it was cheap for 10 SATA ports
  4. You´re right... it´s cheap and the PCI expansion slots are a real UP.... interesting. Thank you
  5. What do you think.. will this work with Xpenology? https://www.amazon.com/Ableconn-PEX10-S ... nsion+sata It´s a cheap optio for just a JBOD. Isn´t?
  6. if you are open to the idea of ATX, then can suggest this one, as I'm using exactly that https://www.asus.com/Motherboards/P10S-WS/ power consumption is not so much on the motherboard but rather the CPU + HDD your 500w PSU will not be pulling 500w every second, it'll only use as much as needed a typical CPU is 55w + 8 HDDs (7w x 8) 56w even if you include RAM and whatever the MB actually uses, it won't be more than 150w average I´m really open-mind and you´re right about power consumption. I think an ATX motherboard can be an interesting option (I really like the 8 onboard sata ports)... but the one you say it´s a little expensive for only a NAS usage. Motherboard+CPU Vs a small mITX... isnt´? Another option more afordable, maybe?
  7. I know this board... 91 € in taobao.com https://world.taobao.com/item/386754676 ... 0.0.SIe6eD But I´m not sure about full compatibility
  8. That´s the point. Most are with just 4 (some with 6) sata ports. You have things like: http://www.asrockrack.com/general/produ ... ifications but I´s a bit expensive and I only need for storage purpose (maybe streaming) I want 10-12 HDDs (6-8 with SATA card and 4-6 on board). I was thinking about a nortmal ATX board with more onboard SATA ports, but for only a NAS for storage and looking for a good power compsuption with no virtualization I think an ATX will be a waste of resources. What´s your opinion about?
  9. Hello; I want to make a new Xpenology NAS, and I need some advice about. I need a mini-itx motherboard with CPU and a passive cooled system and an expansion sata card with (at least) 8 ports. I don´t need all ports to make a RAID, just only to add HDDs. Can you tell me a good choice fully compatible with xpenology? Thanks in advance.
  10. Will this work fine with Xpenology? I think it´s a cheap option for only a file server. If you will not virtualize, a J1900 would be enought...isn´t? As anyone tested some similar?
  11. Thank you redpineapple for your response. I thought (bad) that any working compatible linux expansion card would work in a xpenology NAS. If you say that LSI 9211-8i SA will work for all 8 disk it´s OK to me... the problem is that found a UNAS NSC-800 case to my country isn´t easy I thank you for your advice with that MB and with a LSI... I will think about it... but maybe with a Node 304 Black
  12. Why not a more simply itx? Like N3150 or N3700? I understand that a "PCIe 2.0 x16" it´s usefull for an expansion SATA card... but maybe a N3150 could fit as well. Isn´t? If I plan to upgrade an N3150 with a sata card like these; http://www.amazon.com/IO-Crest-Controll ... +sata+port http://www.amazon.com/Bplus-PM1061-SATA ... -size+sata Can someone tell me if this will work fine with a xpenology? A cheap ITX MB with all expansion cards and 10 HDD it´s a tentative option
  13. I have the same doubt... I want to buil a new Xpenology NAS with, at least, 8 HDD and I was thinking into a "Node 304 Black". (it´s cheap ) In this threat I make a question viewtopic.php?f=2&t=14380 an @redpineapple tell me to try a UNAS NSC-800 and I think the hot swap it´s a usefull resource. After a little research and some comparatives, I think the best price/quality/benefits its the DS380, at least into a home enviroment. What do you think?
  14. Hello; I have a Xpenolgy NAS with a Q1900-ITX and a Tacens IXION case and I´m very happy with this configuration. It´s my first step with a NAS and I think the Xpenology project it´s amazing. I have tried FreeNas but isn´t the same. But now I want more space (just for multimedia storage), and I want to build another Xpenology NAS. If it´s possible, the cheapest one, because it´s just for "non-vital" information. I need a case with 8 HDDs and maybe an ITX MB with 8 SATA ports. I was thinking in (maybe) this configuration: CASE: Node 304 Black http://www.fractal-design.com/home/prod ... -304-black MB: Q1900 with PCI SATA controller http://www.asrock.com/mb/Intel/Q1900-ITX/index.es.asp http://www.amazon.com/IO-Crest-Controll ... s=pci+sata http://www.amazon.com/SilverStone-Techn ... tx+psu+300 What do you think? Something better? somethin cheaper ? Thanks.
