Caught some sales, and used S3500s from ebay for my flash tier.

No issues building, no issues saturating 10gige.

I need to benchmark some lightroom workloads on my local NVMe vs remote flash and remote HDD and see if I can literally work straight off of the NAS vs needing larger local SSD storage on my box.

SSDs are in raid z1 HDDs are in raid z2

Have plex and a few other 24x7 VMs running...wanted something nice and low-power to host that.

You've got a sweet looking NAS

Did the motherboard come with the CPU pre-installed?

All of the xeon-d boards have the CPUs soldered to the motherboard.

I'm planning to build a FreeNAS build, I'd like to use AMD, but FreeNAS recommends Inte. How did you decide to go AMD? How stable is the NAS? Also, planning to run Plex, can it handle at least 2 video transcoding at the same time (I mean two people streaming different movies to different devices at the same time)?Thanks,

Looking at a very similar build, though all of the X10SDV-8C-TLN4F boards I can find only have passive cooling - I notice yours has a fan. Can I ask where you got this or if you installed an aftermarket cooler which one you selected and where you got it? Thanks!

32TB of HDDs and 1.9TB of SSDs isn’t even a hardcore NAS

People run 100TB+ NAS, and then their is the crazies who run tons of SSDs for that performance
