5 out of 5 eggs Perfect build for a multi terabyte, low power home server. 02/09/2014

This review is from: Intel Core i3-4130T Haswell Dual-Core 2.9GHz LGA 1150 35W Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 4400 BX80646I34130T

Pros: I wanted to build a home server, low power, quite, that supported multiple hard drives. My build included this component and fit the bill perfectly. I have now a very quiet server, using very low power, with more than 5TB mirrored drives (raw is >10TB). Strongly recommended.

My build:
- BitFenix Phenom BFC-PHE-300-KKXKK-RP Mini-ITX computer case
- Rosewill Green series 530W 80 PLUS Bronze power
- ASUS H87I-PLUS Mini ITX motherboard
- G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB F3-12800CL10S-8GBXL
- Intel Core i3-4130T 35W (super low power)
- Crucial M500 120GB Sata 2.5" SSD
- 5 Hard Drives, all Western Digital Green, from 1TB to 4TB
- Windows 8.1

Everything is low power, I use the integrated graphics of the CPU, and the SSD keeps the build quite fast. With Windows I created a single 'storage space' that takes all the 5 hard drives and makes it look like a single multi terabyte hard drive, and I selected to have everything mirrorored. No fuss with RAID, it is all in Windows. I don't use a monitor or keyboard (only used it to set it up), as I connect remotely via remote desktop. I chose these components to make sure they were all compatible - it has been running 24/7 for the past 4 weeks with no problem, no heat, no noise. I serve my music to my Sonos components, backup all my work, share all my pictures, and could even remotely access it (I have not set that up yet).

Cons: No cons.

Other Thoughts: More than fast enough for my use. CPU is about 10% used average during normal server use, even when copying files.

With Windows I created a single 'storage space' that takes all the 5 hard drives and makes it look like a single multi terabyte hard drive, and I selected to have everything mirrorored. No fuss with RAID, it is all in Wnidows. I don't use a monitor or keyboard (only used it to set it up), as I connect remotely via remote desktop.

Cons: No cons.

Other Thoughts: I had to flash the new BIOS, no problem. I had to reseat the memory and ended up buying a motherboard speaker to hear the beeps and help me diagnose the memory seated incorrectly. Running like a champ.

Cons: No cons, just had to move the cables as I put the right/left doors the opposite way.
