Build Me A server - Page 2

post #11 of 36
Will you'll have maxed out the ports on that board, there are more expensive ones with 6 but it also has a pci-e x16 (actully x4) slot for a card if you wanted to add one of those. Why no raid? If i were you i would atleast do a 6drive raid 5 (so if you got two more 2tb thats 4tb of space) it would make the drives faster and protect your data. How someone can have a server with no raid or protection floors me.

Could anyone recommend a small-ish case that would fit 4-10 hard drive?

RAID is an awful idea with 5400rpm drives. Drives will randomly drop out and you'll have to constantly rebuild the array.

This one is a mid-tower. It's not really "small" but it can handle 8 hard drives without converting 5.25 bays to 3.5.

This one is near identical, but looks a little more server-ish. wink.gif

Which raid mode would you suggest if i had let's say 8 drives at 2TB each. I want to have a lot of useable space and still have data redundancy. I was doing some light reading and i think raid 5 is probably the best for that?

How much space would i actually get with 8 drives at 2tb each on raid 5?

Could anyone recommend a good card?


Thanks thumb.gif

Yes, raid 5 is best in there. You would have 6tb useable. 1 drive would be lost in raid 5, but that's so you could lose a drive and still function until you can get a replacement. Make sure that the card you do choose allows you to replace the drive live so it can rebuild live. No downtime smile.gif

Are you sure, i found a few online calculators that say it would give me 12tb of space?
