and thats what you want when using an unRAID Server...
its +12v Rail has 34A which means it can handle 17 'Green' drives!
So your definitely 'Safe' when using 16 Green HDD's with this build,,,,
Thanks for these great builds! Looking to config my own mediaserver. First of all i'm planning on running a Media-File server + Download + Tv Backend.
I came with this config. (still in drawing phase )
ASRock 880G PRO3
Fractal Design Define XL
AMD Athlon II X2 245e Boxed
My server will be running max 14 disks (max of case), also i've currently 2 PCI DVB-C cards which i need for my Tv-Backend. I chose the ASRock 880G Pro because of the multiple PCI + PCI-e which will let me expand with both SATA-controller + DVB-C controller(s).
1. Any suggestions with regards to my setup? I upgraded the CPU to a Dual-Core to be able to Download, File-serve and Tv-backend
2. Which power would suit me? Can the 500W Corsair handle 14 disks together with the extra CPU power and the DVB-C cards? (Btw will be running green drives!)
Thanks in advance!
