    I was starting to feel a bit uncomfortable with RAID 5, especially after my desktop died and I needed those backups (thankfully I had them). So I want to move over the RAID 6, which needs an extra two or three drives over what I'm currently running. I was thinking about what to get for the past few months since I was debating on whether to keep using Ubuntu Server or to move to FreeNAS. However, FreeNAS requires some expensive hardware changes and it didn't have some features I wanted to play with (such as VM hosting, which is on Corral but Corral has been "recalled", so to speak). Plus, Newegg was having a sale on the 3TB drives, bringing them down to $100 each.

    So I'll be moving from a RAID 5 6TB setup to a RAID 6 9TB setup :)

    Nice. I've got a FreeNAS system myself (currently 2 mirrored 3 TB Reds), with a Asrock Rack E3C236D2I motherboard with 16 GB DDR4 ECC RAM, and a Pentium G4500. I upgraded to Corral, but the whole debacle made me revert back to 9.10. They're apparently implementing bhyve and VMs in the next point update.

    Finally. I forgot I pre-ordered this, it kept getting delayed and delayed and delayed then got an email today that it shipped! :D

    Forgetfulness and having money to burn. Both hallmarks of old age.

    Fiio X1 2nd Generation + 128GB SanDisk microSD card. It's about time I move away from my ancient 2nd generation iPod mini.

    That is a really good cooler! TechPowerUp loves it. Far better than pulling the trigger on whichever custom solution is restocked first. :vbtongue:
