Home Server Build Part 1 - Requirements, Chassis and PSU - PCSTATS.com Home Server Build Part 1 - Requirements, Chassis and PSU
Fri, Jan 24 2014 | 9:03AM | Filed under: Beginners Guides| PermaLink Posted by: STAFF

Hello all and welcome to this multi-part journey through my File/Home Server build. This is not intended as a "How to " or any sort of pre written guide so take the information in this article with a pinch of salt, and use at your own risk! (There is a forum thread for your own stories) It's a strange thing these days but one of the main technologies to filter into the home is a Home server or a NAS. It's strange because the thing we were never supposed to need was a Cloud we can build and manage or Data Centre servers in our home. Well with all of the media products going virtual it is just the "thing" that pretty much every home will need. I almost feel that I need a Service Designer to design and map out my social and virtual media life and possessions. That said, for now I am just going to lump for my first bespoke Home Server and see where it takes me. To start off there probably wont be much in the way of building, but more some research and requirements into why and what I really need. I have built PC's for around 16 years so the understanding, assembly and trouble shooting shouldn't really be an issue. This though will be my first self build Server, so there maybe a few bumps in the road. I know a lot of guides are online these days so the information and I am going to use as much as possible to plug any knowledge gaps I have.

You do software updates to get the most from favourite programs right? Updating a motherboard BIOS can in a timely manner is also critical. The guide to Flashing a Motherboard BIOS spells out the often complicated steps in plain english. PCSTATS Tips
