  2. Thanks for the reply bearcat, I will look further into the B150 chipset and 6.2.x compatibility. With regards to transcoding, I believe software transcoding is sufficient for my current use scenario. I use an nvidia shield with kodi as my 4k client locally and only share my 1080p movie library with 1 other person. Out of interest, if hardware transcoding becomes needed in the future, what would be the best hardware combination to enable this? Thanks again!
  3. Hi all! Just wondering if these parts would be compatible with DSM 6.2 DS918+ configuration? I searched for the motherboard on the forum but returned no results. Motherboard - Asus B150M-A https://www.asus.com/au/Motherboards/B150M-A/ CPU - INTEL® CORE™ i5-6500 RAM - CORSAIR VENGEANCE® LPX 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR4 DRAM 2133MHz My intention is to install this into a Fractal 804 case for use as a Plex server with Sonarr and Radarr also. Thanks for reading!
  4. Hi! I'm Adam from Australia, I've been casually browsing the forum for a few days now and just decided to join! 😊 I'm interested in building a NAS and using XPEnology to store media and run as a Plex server. I would also like to run Radarr, Sonarr and SABnzbd on the machine. I currently have all this running on a Windows 10 machine with a couple of cheap NAS boxes (Buffalo, Thecus) for storage but I would love to consolidate and get rid of the Windows machine and the Thecus NAS. I have a Fractal Design Node 804 case sitting around without a purpose and I figure with it's HDD capacity it's perfect for a NAS build. So I'm looking for some recommendations on the rest of the hardware to populate the 804. My main interest in the Synology software is Hybrid Raid and the ability to add more hard drives as needed. Thanks!
