I'm designing a replacement for my current server. Goals are modest. Less heat and power draw than my existing server. Roles are file server with drivepool, emby for media with very light encoding needs. Local backups are with Macroum Reflect. Off site backups with Spideroak. OS will be win 10 Pro. My current rig is here: New build: PCPartPicker part list: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/yhdVqk Price breakdown by merchant: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/yhdVqk/by_merchant/ Memory: Crucial - 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory ($63.17 @ Amazon) Case: Fractal Design - Node 304 Mini ITX Tower Case ($106.72 @ Newegg) Power Supply: EVGA - B3 450W 80+ Bronze Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply ($53.73 @ Amazon) Operating System: Microsoft - Windows 10 Pro OEM 64-bit ($139.99 @ Other World Computing) Other: ASRock Motherboard & CPU Combo Motherboards J3455B-ITX ($73.93 @ Newegg) Total: $437.54 Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available Generated by PCPartPicker 2018-01-16 10:30 EST-0500 Storage: LSI SAS 2 port HBA flashed to IT mode. Boot: PNY 120GB SSD Data Pool: 4 x 2TB WD Red Backup Pool: 1x5TB Seagate (Shelled USB drive) When this is built my old rig goes up for sale. My only thought is on the CPU. Could I go with a dual core Celeron for about 80 bucks? Will it handle a single encoding stream and not draw more power than the i3T? The Celeron will do fine as a file server.
