DIY synology for plex
I am thinking on building a xpenology to run my plex server.
Now I am using my mac pro 2012 6 core and a 8 bay enclose with 5 8tB . Last month I lost 2 of my 8tb drives and I didn't have any back up, so that mean i lost almost half of my data.
So I decide to build a synology 16 bay because I like the synology interface.
I was thinking for the case
NORCO 3U Rack Mount 16-Bays SATA/SAS
CUP : 6, 8 or 12 core.
Motherboard: I wanted a motherboard that have 2 M.2 slot sp I can use them for cache
I already have a EVGA 650 gold plus PCU and 15 x 4GB DDR3 RAM
RAID CARD : I also have 3 x It mode LSI 9211-8i SAS SATA 8 port PCI-E 6Gbs controller.
I am not a knowledgeable guy with it comes to hardware. I wanted to know if you guys can help me out or if xpenology is a better os.
