    The one thing I can say for someone looking to build a NAS: never rely on a single case to house a sufficient amount of storage. Go ahead and get an external SAS disk enclosure and just use an expansion card to connect to it. You'll get far better drive density, better performance, and hot-swappable drive caddies. Trust me on this, it is by far the superior solution if you really need a lot of storage.

    if you want freenas always check the freebsd compatibility lists and try and buy that hardware. freebsd is great when it works, but is very manual when it doesnt. I'm not sure for unraid...but raid cards + zfs is not a good idea, unless you remove the raid component of the raid card. some RAID cards add junk to the hard drives even in "passthrou jbod modes", which mangles data if you use any other card.

    I can't make if the entire time he's looking at Jay is with admiration or resentment :D

    Probably it's late to say but I had also a drivers issue with FreeNAS, finally i went to Openmediavault, it's almost the same of freeNas but instead of FreeBSD is a Debian.

    Would like to see a tutorial on this build, but more the setup/configuration that was done. Possible?

    Someone should explain the difference between bits and bytes. There is no way a 10 gigabit connection would be bottle necked by even the slowest SSD.

    It's not a real window it's just a light........ lol
    Nice NAS..... I learned long time ago when dealing with network management naming is like the most important part of it. When you have 100 or 1000 computers and drives easy to get lost..... I see future many more SSD will be installed........

    May I recommend you link the video to your server build. I would have paused and watched that first :P

    Your speed test was fast cause you copied to the cache and not the array. You always copy to the cache then unraid moves the files by it self to the array at set intervals that you tell it to. And that is slow. Like 30mb / sec.

    Not to sound like a snob, but when you only have 2x 10G ports, I wouldn't classify that as a 10G network. Hell, Jay makes way more money than I do and I have a Netgear XS712T (10x 10GBase-T + 2x SFP+)... you could have bought a Netgear xs708T for a $200 more than that Asus toy, but I would have expected Jay to at least have something like an XS716T
