I am looking to build a server for home to host pics, music etc for the family and back up everybodys devices to it, looking to alocate storage for each person so looking to hook up a few drives etc.It would probably be better if you tell us what its use would be.
I did think about NAS but would prefer to have the flexability of being PC based.I would suggest that you look into NAS devices first as they are capable of fulfilling your needs.
e.g. QNAP, Synology.
Idealy looking for Intel processor maybe i5, the ASRock P67 sounds ideal i will take a look at the specs.Which socket do you need and are you talking about motherboards for an Intel processor or motherboards made by Intel?
The ASRock P67 Extreme6 supports 10 SATA connections, as do their more expensive Z77 Professional and Z77 Extreme9
