I am planning to build a FreeNas system using some of the old hardware that I have to store media and other non critical stuff. I hope to get minimum of 12 TB usable storage in RAID Z2 configuration.Following are spec’s.
Intel Core I5 2500k
Intel DH6C7BL Mobo
32 GB non ECC memory
2x 120 GB SSD as redundant boot media.
6x 4TB WD RED NAS Drives
Cooler Master MWE 650 Bronze - V2 PSU
Cooler Master CM 690 II Case
I am planning to use LSI Internal SATA/SAS LSI 9211-8i LSI00194 8port 6Gb/s PCI-Express 2.0 RAID Controller Card, LSI SAS HBA to connect my HDD’s. Please let me know if this the right HBA for my build.
