    Options and Options and Options!

    Hey everyone, First off, I hope you are having a great week if not I hope it gets better. Let's start here, I have been running a QNAP NAS for 9-years and it's been running rock solid. 4GB ram | Intel Core 2 Duo with 5x 3TB Drives @ 10TB usable space! Now it's time to reinvest expand my storage and move on to a new setup. I purchased an HP Gen10 Server it's running a XEON Silver CPU (1 Socket) (for now 16gb ram) but I can expand to 192gb. The array will be x8 12TB Helium Drives. The reason I opted to go with a traditional server this time around is it gives me options to scale up or down and to install many options for images -distros. Examples? Vmware esxi, Hyper V, Windows Server 2019, FREENAS, Unbuntu etc etc The parts are now coming in and I am just torn. Do I just do freenas? Do I install vmware and freeenas on top of it? Should I just do Hyperv? In short this holds alot of high res 4k movies and images from my GX85 and GH5 cameras along with 4k drone footage + dslr images and of course backups. Thoughts? EDIT: I forgot to add, please keep in mind i may or may not add a 32TB SAN (this will most likely happen) OLD NAS setup *NAS*=QNAP TS-509 Pro/RAID5/(5)Seagate 3TB @ 10.5 TB

    THe corsair 1000d doesnt support eATX and MATX I would have to buy a mITX on top of that it wouln't support my Evga GTX 1070 ftw + my elgato 4k capture card.. so the 1000D is out of the question.

    Thought about it but I am horrible at like modding and all that cutting etc etc not to mention i dont even have half the tools needed

    Oh my fault. Yeah I dont have a budget for the case. So "it's open" ideally would like to keep it under $1000

    I should also add I already have watercooling parts for my main pc. So it needs to be watercooling friendly.
