Advice on Hardware


Recommended Posts

Hi, I am new to Xpenology but I would like to start building a NAS using it.


I have tested using my PC with Asus MAXIMUS V GENE and really like it. Now I would like build a dedicated one. here is my wish list


Silverstone DS380

Intel i7-6700K

Corsair 2400Mhz 16GB x 2

Corsair H80i v2

HGST NAS 6TB x 3, WD Green 2TB x 3

Future may put 2 more SSD for VM purpose.



Gigabyte GA-H170N-WIFI (6 SATA)

- can get locally in my place, cheaper USD70

- Intel I219V chip and the other one controlled by an Intel I211AT chip.


ASRock Rack C236 WSI (8SATA) - need order oversea

- Intel® i210+Intel® i219


I already bought the DS380 but I am thinking of UNAS NSC-800 because of the smaller in size but I not sure if it is ok to put a i7 CPU inside such a small case.


Hope you guys can give your opinion about this build.
