I'm looking to build a Windows Home Server 2011 box to use as a media server and backup storage.
My goal is to build it as inexpensively and energy efficiently as possible. After doing a lot of research on possible configurations I've decided to build it around an AMD Fusion E-350 based motherboard but I'm having trouble choosing one, so I thought I'd see if anyone has experience with them.
I've narrowed my selection to the following three boards because I'd like to have USB 3.0 and eSATA. Each is paired with my best guess for RAM that will work with the board.
Hello ars_inveniendi ,
I am building a home server as well, and was hoping you could comment on your selection/configuration. What config did you choose? Are you happy with the throughput MB/s with your build? Is the APU powerful enough for your application? Did you have issues with drivers? Are you having difficulty streaming any blueray or DVD content over your network?
