Re: Is a NAS worth it for a single user?

Thanks for the detailed answer! The size of the case isn't too much of an issue given the static nature of the project, and then I'll find an other place to put the thing in.
And yes, I'll be building my own NAS and will keep it plugged on an Ethernet cable!

Re: Is a NAS worth it for a single user?

Okay, I've got a question regarding the purchase of a NAS for a limited dedicated use as well. The thing is that I'm planning to get a holiday house this summer, and I'd like to have a NAS there, one that I'd have an access to from my "main" residence as to send tons of content there to have all the...

Re: One or Two front intake fans?

To put it simply, if you have a frontal air intake and a rear air outlet, then some of the intake fans will blow air straight into the outlet, and you'll have a loss of fresh air. I think that having the outlet fans on the top of the case would make sense as hot air rises, and then you could optimis...

Re: Next gaming build

I can vouch for the quality of the 1050 Ti as well, I'm playing War Thunder and Heliborne with maxed out everything with high FPS and no overheating/excessive sound or everything. I had issues with Win10 as well, reversed back to Windows 8.1, and everything was running smoothly as well. At least I d...

Re: With helium drives, anything above 6TB = noisy?

Roger, thanks! I was intending to put quite a heavy workload on the NAS (not always, but at peak times when my son, my wife and I will all use it at the same time) so I'd rather find a place that's less enclosed. Hell, I'm fairly sure I can come up with something that will allow air from outside of ...

Re: With helium drives, anything above 6TB = noisy?

Regarding the use of these drives in a NAS, are there air circulation/cooling levels I should be paying attention to? I've got sort of a pantry in my flat that I'd like to use to put a future NAS in, but since it's in a room with no windows and since it would be enclosed in a closet, I'm afraid that...
