for STREAMING, that should be fine

 

even if the audio needs to be transcoded , that will be fine

 

it would only be for real time video transcoding you may need to upgrade

 

so as long as whatever you are streaming to can decode HEVC, i dont think you will need to upgrade 

Can an Apple TV 4K decode HEVC on Plex?

Two radiators - two options: closer or further from the rear connectors.

 

Do you want to sell the second radiator? :)

Is there an updated CPU table anywhere for the Gen8?

 

No, intel afaik, has stopped producing these older (and especially developing) CPU's...

Just get a 1265L v2 - They are they best for this little one! - Can be costly today though.. :)

So finally got my hard drives to put in my HP ProLiant Gen8 G1610T MicroServer. 

1 x Crucial BX500 120GB Serial ATA-600 as system disk

4 x WD Red SOHO NAS 4TB 3.5" Serial ATA-600

 

Now i just need RAM's and a CPU. What are the best ones available?

Scanning fast trough the thread i see 1265L v2 and 16 GB ECC RAM is the way to go?

 

Thinking of maybe running FreeNAS or similar setup, depending on which have all the features i want.

Kinda new to linux tho so recommendations for OS is also helpful.

Planning to run a Plex server and storage mainly on it, with rar2fs. 

also want to be have some kind of backup system (raid) just to be sure.

 

Any advices and hints are much appreciated!

I think the 1265L v2 is the way to go and 16GB ECC RAM too. I would reconsider creating a Raid array. For home use (is it home use right?) it may be considerable from some point of view, but I always say, no Raid will save you in case of disaster. If you want to be sure, you need to have your important data saved on a different location (Cloud, other server, Bluray media...). I think, that wasting storage by creating a Raid array makes no sense in this case. I have never tried to get data from a broken XPenology Raid, but in case of broken Raids, I was rarely successful. Many people may disagree with me, but this is my comment, take it or leave it :)

Thanks for the comments!

its for home use, media collection and backup for everything important. 

Yeah maybe you are right.

The raid might be overkill and it will still be gone in case of fire.

Maybe instead go for backblaze backup I red somewhere you can get for 50 bucks a year?
