Interesting. I've heard ZFS can help to combat data rot but I haven't looked into it any further. My media/Plex server seems to be doing alright using an assortment of drives in NTFS but I did have some files suddenly become corrupt after 5+ years of working as normal.

I'm in the process of upgrading and replacing components so I will keep ECC ram in mind. Though I will likely end up using an R710 which IIRC requires ECC ram anyway.

Though for $80 this Biostar mobo looks to be a pretty solid alternative to a rack mount setup. And would keep the heat + power bill down. Hmm...

If you have any questions fire away guys, I'm currently using it in a rackmount case (Silverstone RM21-308) with Silverstone ECS04 dual SFF-8087 LSI RAID card, with 8 drives in Raid 10 currently, 32GB of non-ECC memory.

Never really looked into new ECC prices honestly, but second-hand ECC RAM is usually dirt cheap. You can get 128GB of ECC DDR3 on eBay for ~$100 ezpz.

Which OS/software do you run on your server and is this just a file server or a media server (Plex/Emby)?

I was just thinking pfSense and thought that if there was a cheaper, lower power board it would make for a perfect pfSense firewall. Even a single core one would be excellent for home use.

Edit: right after posting this I found the Asrock QC5000-ITX, which has an A4-5050 1.5GHz quad core Kabini APU, with a TDP of 13.5W.

I run Mint on my server and Mint in a VM for Plex/Emby. I found that NTFS can't come close to the IO I get with XFS. Though now I am considering switching to Ext4 and experimenting with Puppy Linux and testing the limits of such a small distro.

I've found that running a dediated media server in a VM is far better than running it natively or in Docker as backing it up is a simple copy/paste action. And importing such a VM in VBox is incredibly easy.

I'm not too fussed on IO tbh, this will just become my backups server for photography mostly. I don't use/download/acquire much media.
