Hmmm, I'll have a look at Proxmox sounds interesting I was entertaining XCP-NG also.
I've looked/ran Unraid but it just didn't seem that impressive to me.
Especially the $$ part, when there are many viable/better free alternatives out there.
I agree with you that FreeNas is excellent overall, used it in the past.
At this time it doesn't fit my needs/wants specifically with storage.

Every time I want to increase my storage I don't want to have to buy x4 or x5 hdd's.
Whether going to bigger drives or adding another pool.
I just want to increase as I see fit. If I was running 50TB's to 100TB's then sure.
I'm still under 13TB's at the moment. And that's with a pool size of 20TB's
That's the part of ZFS I don't like, adds unwanted expenses IMO.

I'm thinking in the next couple of years or so I'll be moving to SSD's for bulk storage.
I've been using Win 16/19 with Stablebit drive pooling for a few years now, it's been solid so...

But yeah, I was impressed with the Asrock line-up of boards.
Not only IPMI but dual M.2 and optionally 10Gb plus support for 7nm on top.
So in a few years, I could throw in a 16c/32t CPU for relatively cheap.

No biggie about the power the consumption I have a kill-a-watt here.
It's just this server will be running 24/7 and don't want a power hog.
My current setup uses under 65w at load. I'll be hitting you up now & then for info.
Sorry so long winded.
