    Looking for something like the J5040-ITX, but available now

    Here's an update for your interest. I decided to install an LSI 9211-8i HBA in IT mode, which will control the 4x 2TB HGST drives. For the OS (and /var/lib/unifi-video MongoDB database) I decided to get a single Kingston DC500M 480GB SSD, which is an enterprise drive that has PLP. It will be...

    How can I change F@H power level based on idle?

    OK, I wasn't aware that WUs couldn't always resume from where they left off. Is this also the case when using the pause/resume buttons as well, or is it just to do with the power level switching? Ideally, the software would run in Medium until it became idle, and then it will wait until the...

    How can I change F@H power level based on idle?

    I want to fold at "medium" when I am using my computer, and at "full" when it is idle. I can't see a way to do that?

    I went ahead and just got the J5005-ITX, as far as I can tell the board itself will be essentially the same, and the difference will just be in the refreshed CPU. In any case, it's lightyears ahead of the D2550 that is in the stock NVR.

    Looking for something like the J5040-ITX, but available now

    Possibly, but I have to keep in mind the TDP because this is going in a very small 4-bay cube case from supermicro, which only has one fan. I don't want to push it too high and affect stability, which is why I was targeting newer/more efficient stuff. Like I said, I honestly don't know how to...

    Looking for something like the J5040-ITX, but available now

    Yes, thanks for pointing me in that direction. Although their site kind of sucks, I've discovered some interesting embedded AMD options, some of which have a PCIe slot that I could use an HBA on. https://www.asrockind.com/overview.asp?Model=IMB-V1000...

    Interesting board - not sure how that SoC compares to the J5005 or J5040? However, it has only 2x SATA ports and no expansion for me to add an HBA card.

    Looking for something like the J5040-ITX, but available now

    Yeah, not only is it fairly old, but it seems to be out of stock lately. Problem is, I don't really know my low-end parts that well, so I'm having a hard time doing comparisions.

    Looking for something like the J5040-ITX, but available now

    Anyone? I know the board I mentioned above is only 10 watts, but I can probably go as high as 40 watts or so without having cooling issues in my chassis.

    Looking for something like the J5040-ITX, but available now

    I really want to build my new NVR/NAS box using the Asrock J5040-ITX board, but it hasn't been released yet. Can you guys help me find the next best option that would have equivalent or better performance without breaking the bank? I'm less concerned about the power draw, but keeping it low...

    What RAID to use for a new NVR/NAS combo?

    Protect does lock you into their hardware as far as the NVR goes, but the old Video platform, while not very maintained, is still available for custom server builds. Thanks for the input, much appreciated. The randomness was what I was concerned about. At this point, I'm thinking RAID 10 for...

    What RAID to use for a new NVR/NAS combo?

    This is going to be for a commercial UniFi Video setup, so I can't run on a pre baked NAS OS. I have used their Atom-based NVR with its 2TB 2.5" drive, and it had lackluster performance when dealing with more than about 15 cameras. The NAS actually won't need a lot of space, I might allocate...

    Best 4-bay hotswap case for NVR/NAS?

    Thanks guys, good note about the PSU. Now to see what kind of screaming deal I can find on the supermicro case - next I need to figure out what to put in it. Maybe I'll post in another section about that, wish asrock would have released their j5040 board already.

    Best 4-bay hotswap case for NVR/NAS?

    I'd like to spend less than $200 on the case. My overall budget is $1200-1500 including 4x 4TB storage drives, but less is better.

    Best 4-bay hotswap case for NVR/NAS?

    I'm looking to build an NVR/NAS setup, and I want to get either a short-depth 4-bay 1U chassis or a mini-ITX cube formfactor for it. There seems to be many options, but with a wide range of prices and potential issues. I've been looking in particular at cases from Chenbro, Supermicro, and Norco...
