Drivepool in a DAS environment to stream large videos



Very happy with how drivepool has performed on my aging desktop, but soon I'll be transferring the license to my newer PC, a Hades Canyon NUC running Windows 11.  Currently my drivepool consists of internal drives, but after my 4-bay external enclosure arrives I'll connect it to the Hades Canyon and use drivepool with the DAS.  It has USB 3.1 Gen2 so no bottelenecks there for streaming my 4k UHD videos.  I have paralysis from analysis when trying to decide which hard drives to put in the DAS.  My first question for the group is for someone to validate that drivepool with read striping enabled on DAS drives will not introduce a bottleneck when streaming 50-80GB mkv video files.  Assuming drivepool will play nice with this setup, I am partial to western digital drives and put a premium on noise level over performance.  I'm trying to identify the most quiet 14tb-18tb hard drive out there.  Reliability and noise level are the most important factors.
