Building a 20TB DAS costs nearly the same as building a 20TB server (16-port RAID card = $430; 4-port card+4xPM=$370-$510 vs. CPU+mb+RAM+controller=$400). Then I would build a server (as I can place it at a different place).
WHS works with an AMD system. (Do you find any problem with AMD processor or something else?)
I am trying to replace some off existing parts from my HTPC and use it for this WHS Server, that is the reason i was looking for Intel Platform. I have Asus P5E-VM HDMI MB, wanna replace with G45 or P45. Also the processor. Rest stays same in the HTPC and will buy new items for Server.
Please suggest all the required components once again for WHS platform with Intel. I am going to use WHS RAID, and no hardware RAID for this server.
