Hello everyone, and thanks for taking a look.
I wish to build a small server to store images and video for my drone company and a YouTube channel I am putting together. At this time the server will be located in a rack in my home and will be accessed by a single computer to store images and for video editing. I would like to do this as cheap as possible; however, in the near future all equipment will be moved to a warehouse that will be my office/studio. I would rather spend more up front if it makes sense rather than upgrading later. In the near future it will need to be functional for multiple users. I would like to add RAID for redundancy.
1U Rack Case with 4 x Hot Swap cages
Biostar TB250-BTC (from GPU Miners)
Intel Celeron G3930 LGA1151 Gen 7 (from GPU miners)
Plenty of SSDs
Asus branded 10Gb Nic
I don’t think I can make it work with what I have as I do not think I can even mount the motherboard as the cooling fan will make it to tall. What can I recycle for this project, what do I need, what do you all recommend?
Thanks in advance for the advice.
