    Hi Folks,

    I am planning to equip my fileserver with new components. At the moment it's running on my old PC so that's not great for the electricity bill ;) Buying new hardware will probably be more expensive, but let's just roll with it and say it's for my good conscience.

    Already defined:
    • Windows 8
    • Storage Pool with StableBit DrivePool
    • 6 HDDs
    • 1 SSD as system drive
    • 1 KNC-One DVB-C2 receiver card
    • Passive cooled low end graphics card
    • Should run TV Server, MediaPortal 2 Server and MP-Extended (AirVideo at the moment) for streaming
    What I need:
    • Case (good cooling, room for the HDDs, quit), thinking about the Lian Li PC-10NB
    • Mainboard and CPU, powerful enough for the tasks above and as low-energy as possible
    • PSU ... how much is enough?

    Any help, especially regarding mainboard and CPU, would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
