Cheap Ryzen NAS with 4k transcoding

Recommended Posts

Some time ago I had build my own NAS based on intel core and xpenology system installed. Now I want to upgrade it. At the beginning I wanted to build my own home server with 2 xeons but now I think that the cost of maintaining it will be too high when it will be running 24h per day and I actually will never use its full power. I am thinking about building something cheaper for home use based on AMD Ryzen/ Athlon that will be energy efficient but will have enough power to transcode by DLNA/media server 4k movies (f.ex 2-3 ) + stream music + handling torrent client all at the same time. I was thinking about buing used parts of : Athlon 240GE + MSI A320M pro M2 + 16gb ddr4 ecc (have one spare/ I think mobo can run it but in non ecc mode) + LSI raid controller. What do You think about it?
