According to the WD website their Reds have some sort of ECC built into the drive. Can someone shed some light on this for me, please? I don't understand what the benefits are and how it works.

The quad core xeon is just helpfull for transcoding in plex. Thats it. What is the point of a really powerfull cpu if all the server is for is home storage? You are basically paying more for nothing. Where as spending a little extra for ECC actually is a good thing for that added data security/reliability. Or you can just go my route and do the xeon and the ECC. ECC and a lower spec server /workstation board with ECC support are a small price to pay for data integrity.

But, thats me.

If you take some time to look on ebay you can find some sweet deals on registered ECC memory. I got 12 dual rank (2Rx4) 8Gb Registered HP PC3-10600R (DDR3-1333) Hynix Sticks for 120$ with shipping... so 96Gb of DDR3 1333 Registered ECC RAM for 120 shipped at my door, that was pretty sweet. thumb.gif

Bought an Asus RT-AC1200G+, has GBit capabilities. Reading from the server at a steady 105MB/s, no port aggregation configured yet.
Will buy a switch that supports it, already got one under my sights.

TP Link - TL-SG108E

Bought this router because it supports VPN server, 5Ghz and AC and obviously its a gigabit router.

Now I gotta ask a question, if a single port runs at gigabit speeds how will aggregating two of them help me in speed issues? Or is it for failproofing specifically?

Unless the router supports speeds in excess of a gigabit aggregating them is just a failsafe in case one cable or port fails as the switch simply can't go over those speeds anyway.

Okay yea you're right. Reading the FreeNAS forums found out a document where a person explains that on a single load it makes no difference, but paralel loads it could help.
I don't really know currently how much do I even care to configure that, currently freeNAS recognises both nics, they both got a cable plugged in and they got IP address assigned to them.
Connecting to them gives me the webgui on both.
Speed seems according to be what is expected so I guess I'll finish the media streaming part of freenas.

Unless the router supports speeds in excess of a gigabit aggregating them is just a failsafe in case one cable or port fails as the switch simply can't go over those speeds anyway.

That isn't how a switch works. The internals are FAR beyond "gigabit", and usually enough to handle at least half the maximum traffic even in cheap models; a 5-port gigabit + wifi will probably have at minimum a 6gbps capacity internally. Good ones can handle full everything. Teaming, especially if it supports the feature, should never be a concern. My 4849Es can handle a lot more throughput than the physical connections (48x 1gbps, 4x 10gbps, full duplex) can. Several times (just over x4 for "normal" bandwidth) more actually.

There are also several types of link aggregation, and as it so happens, my motherboard (and all my Server NICs, and my L3 switches) supplies several of them. Aggregation as a tech absolutely will increase total available bandwidth, but depending on which version used, it may not be for one "single threaded" network connection (and some can; I use them). Some forms of teaming are failover only, but aggregation isn't one of them, and if the router supports the feature it will be more than capable of backing it up.

Regardless, 2x 1gbps teamed links to the router does you zero good unless either the thing doing it is being accessed by sources which are capable of saturating a single link, or if you have another target you would like to access at those speeds, Which requires both sides AND the entire network between them to be set that way. If it is only your desktop, you will not see any real benefit from teaming at all.

On the flip side, I can copy at 2gbps to my RAID array and my servers have 4/6gbps total links to the switch, allowing any VMs on one server to access the full bandwidth to transfer something to another VM (or HV to HV, whichever) on the other server. My switches also have a 4gbps link between them to stop my desktop's 2gbps from killing other connections to the server on this switch. Backbones are fun.

Just bought a 802.12ad switch for some 2gbps action.

Should hold me over until MultiGIG Ethernet comes out. Lol.

Curious...How do you feel about MultiGIG?
