Which one of those?

#1

Post by lindsay » 25 Jan 2017 07:39

I am looking at Asrock C2750D4I and Asrock C2550D4I

This one is only gonna serve movies,music,tv-shows beside backups of clients.

And it has 12 Sata wich is enough for the rack i am gonna get and use the PCIe to 10Gbps networkcard

Asrock C2550D4I seems to be the best choice and cheapest

It is gonna be with mirror zfs 10X8TB and 2x4TB hdd`s

I am using C2550D4I since some years now, be careful with the memory, some kingston ECC did not work. Stick to the recommendations on the QVL
http://www.asrockrack.com/general/produ ... D4I#Memory

Besides this, the board is nice and running fine.

If you have a case that can hold 12 drives, then it should have enough room for a uATX motherboard.
Go for a supermicro uATX, probably the x10SL7-F (14 sata ports)
With a respectable CPU it should cost the same, you will have more options for additional cards, more options to upgrade in the future and more reliability (there have been a lot of reports about BMC problems with those particular mobos)
My Nas
  1. Case: Fractal Design Define R2
  2. M/B: Supermicro x9scl-f
  3. CPU: Intel Celeron G1620
  4. RAM: 16GB DDR3 ECC (2 x Kingston KVR1333D3E9S/8G)
  5. PSU: Chieftec 850w 80+ modular
  6. Storage: 8x2TB HDDs in a RaidZ2 array ~ 10.1 TB usable disk space
  7. O/S: XigmaNAS 11.2.0.4.6625 -amd64 embedded
  8. Extra H/W: Dell Perc H310 SAS controller, crosflashed to LSI 9211-8i IT mode, 8GB Innodisk D150SV SATADOM for O/S

From me here another vote to go for the Supermicro https://www.supermicro.nl/products/moth ... 0SL7-F.cfm X10SL7-F.
System specs: XigmaNAS 11.2.0.4 -embedded on Samsung 860 EVO 256GB and Supermicro X10SL7-F w / Bios v3.2, IPMI v.03.84 / CPU E3-1241 v3 @ 3.50GHz - 32GB Crucial DDR3L 1600mhz ECC 1.35v , LSI 2308 on PH20.00.07.00 IT mode, Storage: 5x Western Digital Red (WD30EFRX) raidz

Development system is same system in virtualbox.

Agreed, since I have my supermicro Board things got much more uncomplicated......
look at ebay for a cheap offer

I like this one as it can be used with an 4X1Gbps cards beside the 2 internals and a 10Gbps card and it has 12xSATA

With IPMI you can use rack console? (8-port kvm switch)

And does WOL works with this board?

It is going to be this mainboard ASUS Z10PA-D8, 2xSocket-2011-3 and expand later when needed.
It is expensive With 2x xenon and memory if you go to fill all memory banks.
I am going to ask the webshop wich memory will work With this Board.

Not to mention all the hdd`s if i go for 8TB and raidz1

Looks like a nice board..
I would personally prefer something like the Supermicro x10drl-i, since it has integrated ikvm, but what i like about the Asus more is that it has 2x16 pcie slots.
And the Asus is probably cheaper...

I Wonder if Intel Xeon E5-2620 V4 is compatible With the mainboard?
It is Nice With HyperThread -Support on the CPU
