Hey all, I’m fairly new to the whole thing and want to start my first server build soon but I'm not 100% aware of potential compatibility issues and so on. Any advice on the list of components I have in mind would be greatly appreciated.

Case - Dynapower EJ-4U515-C – (already have from old rig) http://www.dynapowerusa.com/dyna/ASP/RM_4U_EJ-4U515-C.asp

MB - ASUS P9D-C/4L -http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813132001&cm_re=server_motherboard-_-13-132-001-_-Product

PSU - LEPA MX-F1 350W – http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIA3912ET7291&cm_re=350w_atx-_-17-494-012-_-Product

Crucial 16 GB (8GBx2) ECC DDR3 - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820148770

What do you want out of the server? obviously file sever with those HDD's but what else?

No CPU listed? You'll want a dedicated RAID card for your drives if you want serious performance and less issues.
