Creating a NAS Server for my home. Will probably do something like UnRaid and a Plex Server. My plans are to use the Reds in Raid 5 while the Desktop HDD would keep an Independent Nightly Backup.

I welcome comments and suggestions, especially about my drive configuration. My goal is to have 4TB of usable data so any suggestions should keep that in mind. Thanks in advance!

The CapstoneG isn't a good PSU despite it sharing the same name with the original Capstone. Its totally different and is mediocre at best.

Other than that it looks good.

You have a compatibility warning:

Kingston 8GB (1 x 8GB) DDR3-1600 Memory is ECC, but the Asus M5A78L-M/USB3 Micro ATX AM3+ Motherboard does not support ECC RAM.

It's wrong, ASUS states on their site that this board supports ECC.

Thanks, I have flagged the compatibility warning as incorrect.
