    Default Homebuild NAS, looking for mainboard suggestions

    Hey all

    Im planning on building my own NAS system. Besides general storage it also has to run a web and mail server.

    So far i've only decided on a case: Fractal Design Array R2 Mini ITX NAS Case.
    It's gonna run 7 hdd's (1 for system and server and 6 for storage).

    My thoughts where on a atom d525 mainboard with some sort of extra sata controller to get enough ports. But i'm open to any sugestions.

    It has to be power efficient, but else nothing is locked yet on my decision.

    Any input is welcome (must be available for purchase in the EU)

    starting to lean towards the zotac M880GITX-A-E, a bit pricey but one of the few integrated boards with ddr3 support and 6 sata slots. bonus for the future is also the usb3 and sata3 on this one - anyone got any experience with this ? though i doubt it since i haven't gotten a single suggestion reply sadly
    My advice - never visit a short-url, no matter who gives it to you. You can't trust any source at any time when you don't know your target
