Hi all I have a somewhat fractured setup at home and I want to streamline it a bit. I'm really struggling to make up my mind so I'm looking for any tips or comments to help me on my way! I have a trusty i5 2600k workhorse that I use to rip and encode my media library plus send it to my devices via plex and kodi (mainly plex nowadays). I have a tuner card in there which I use with wmc and kodi occasionally for streaming rather than as a pvr. It also has a 560ti graphics card that I use for occasional sofa gaming via steam streaming. Nothing remotely too heavy or new, actually mostly emulating old console games. I have a small ssd for Windows 7 pro and a 1tb drive for everyday bits and pieces. My media library is currently spread over 2 x 4tb drives and 1 x 2tb drives. To back this up I have a synology ds210j with a 4tb and 2tb drive. The last drive is backed up on an external USB drive. The synology is very rarely turned on and on really just a caddy not a nas now. All back ups are done with copy and paste, no raid etc. Very low tech. All of this lives in my basement and is usually woken up via WOL for streaming or ripping or gaming. I don't have a monitor plugged in as I just use teamviewer to remote in when needed. I use my tablet or cheap hp laptop for everyday computing needs. I stream to a couple of chromecasts and kodi clients. Everything works but I want a setup that's a bit more elegant and that will allow me to easily add more storage when needed. I am now thinking of using a big case and a sata controller for extra ports so I can move everything into one box and setup to back up automatically. I could also sell the synology for a few quid. I guess I am nervous about moving the PC into a new case and killing it. I am also a bit worried about having all my eggs in one basket in case my PC blows up or some other unlikely disaster. Mainly I want to find a good long term setup that covers all bases and is easy to run. I would really appreciate any thoughts on my setup and what might be the best way to go. I want to keep the costs down and recently picked up a massive lian Li case on the cheap that I think might do the job. But having said that my library is very precious and I would invest some money if needed to keep things safe and in working order. Merry Christmas!
