Advice about motherboar and cpu for a 20 HDDs NAS

Recommended Posts

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

Or maybe its a too simple configuration?

 

Thank you
