Proposed Hardware For A New Server
It has been a while since the last build, which is 1.5 years ago. In the beginning, I was planning to build a NAS for back up purpose. While looking for a good NAS case, I chanced upon Lian-Li PC-Q26. The features of this case immediately caught my attention-10 3.5in HDD drive bays. As far as I know, this is the smallest case that comes with this many 3.5in HDD drive bays. On top of that, I have seen many people using the motherboard Asrock Rack E3C224D4I-14S, which sits perfectly into the Lian Li case. So after more research online, I have put up a list of the hardware that I hope to get for this new server.
- Case: Lian Li PC-Q26B
- Motherboard: Asrock Rack E3C224D4I-14S
- Processor: Intel® Xeon® Processor E3-1276 v3
- HDD: WD Red Pro 4TB x10
- SSD: Samsung Evo Pro 1TBx1
The above list is the minimal hardware specification that I would like to have.
