Damn, so sorry to have not posted about my build. All i have to say is that i just LOVE it. Im using the unraid OS, together with the specs I've written above. I can easily stream a 20gb the avengers movie at either max quality or at some other random quality setting just to see whether it transcodes fast enough. Movies or seried start playing fast, seeking takes 5 seconds at max. But i would say this does not only depend on the NAS though.
Had a crappy router before this which would start buffering like crazy if i try to play a 20gb movie, but all is well now with the ac68u i just got!!
All in all, i would say there's no regrets at all on getting an i3 for my NAS as it may be downloading something thru Sab, transmission, transcoding a series or two wirelessly and wired to my pc, and the temps would be 45 at max.
While unpacking an nzb, abd running the sabto sickbeard script, It would go to 50 celcius max before going down again to 39 celcius or so. Hdd temps would be about 38 degrees on a hot day, but it doesn't go above 34 degrees now as its raining season currently.
Maybe later in the day ill shate a few screen shots of the unpacking speed and temps, as im om my train to work now lol.
