Hardware Sanity Check -


Recommended Posts

Hi All,


I am planning to build my first NAS. I own a DS213+ (2 x 3TB Seagate ST3000DM001 - RAID0) and I need more space and redundancy (I made the mistake to underestimate my storage needs). Basically I use my NAS as Download Station + Plex Server.


My hardware setup should be:

- Supermicro A1SAi-2750

- 16GB ECC RAM (Samsung or Crucial)

- Case Fractal Design Node 304 or Silverstone DS380

- PSU 450W


Volume management:

- (step 1) - 3 x 6TB WD Red 1 x 2TB WD Green (already with parking disabled) SHR-1

- (Final Step) - 6 x 6TB WD RED by replacing the WD Green and adding 2 WD RED 6TB


My concerns are:

1 - My setup is well supported? Could anyone with same setup share opinions and performances

2 - Does SHR expansion work? (I read that some user are experiencing problem).


Any advise/suggestion is welcome.


Thank you
