HGST Deskstar NAS 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Purchased 5 of these for a NAS build and they all are working great and are surprisingly quiet. Surprised at the build quality of these after burning through a bunch of Seagate 3TB drives with various issues.

Cons: None so far... fingers crossed.

Other Thoughts: I need a sixth to convert to RAID Z2. :)

SUPERMICRO MBD-X10SLM-F-O uATX Server Motherboard LGA 1150 Intel C224 DDR3 1600
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Solid board, worked without significant tweaks/updates right out of the box. It sounds like lots of folks are having difficulty with memory pairing. I used Crucial Unbufferred ECC (detailed below) and it's working without issue.

Crucial 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM ECC Unbuffered DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Server Memory Model CT2KIT102472BD160B

Cons: I've had some NIC port flapping and can't pin down if it's related to the hardware or a FreeNAS bug. It isn't significant and doesn't seem to affect performance but my security logs are calling it out a few times a week which is a little suspect. I've swapped cables but no joy.
