A while back my media box died (sorta..) it was an old HP N54L with a graphics card, running libre-elec. the OS was running on a USB stick which I think is what kept dying but they also dropped support for the graphics card so it wasn't working great.
so I'm on a quest to rebuild, and planning to use unraid.
- Gigabyte Z590 UD
- 2x WD blue SN550 1tb NVME's (cache)
- Core i5-11600K (on order)
- 2x G.Skill Ripjaws V 16GB (2x8GB) 3600MHz CL16 DDR4 (on order)
- 4x Seagate NAS HDD 3.5 inch 4TB Hard Drive ST4000VN000 (from old system with data)
- LG Blue ray burner
Looking for suggestion for a good PSU in the 400-500W range (from what I've seen this should cover me)
I also want a case to fit in a Kallax case so 330x330xwhatever (or I design and build my own which is tempting..)
and I'm keeping an eye for another 1-2 bigger drives for parity and to replace the older drives
Open to suggestions for potential cooling options but I think the stock coolers will be fine for now.
Thanks in advanced for any advice and help.
