    FS: 2013 Mac Pro, 8x3tb NAS Hard drives

    TTT. Also note that I ran badblocks on the 3tb hard drives and all are good to go.

    FS: 2013 Mac Pro, 8x3tb NAS Hard drives

    Note that I wound up doing a case swap on it, which is why it has an ATX PSU adapter; I no longer have the original case.

    Very slow ZFS RaidZ2 Performance on TrueNAS 12

    By very slow... I was getting ~30MB/s as reported by rsync --info=progress2, transferring from a single 14TB drive via USB3. Mea culpa for not running badblocks on some new-to-me drives. All good drives in now, and the transfer rate was up to ~160MB/s.

    FWIW, I came to this thread because my writes were very slow... turns out I had 2 bad drives.

    Silverstone DS380: ITX 8x SAS/Sata Hotswap

    So I just got the case and already ran into my first snag... I suspect the case has been sitting in a warehouse for a hot minute because the pentagon pattern bolt that secures the front door was in there pretty good. The first of 2 flimsy plastic tools that Silverstone included just twisted...

    HGST Ultrastar He10 - 10TB @ $129.95

    Yeah, it's just like Amazon Marketplace sellers, except it sounds like there's less buyer protection... I still buy from Newegg every now and then, but only "sold by Newegg" with rare exceptions (DJI official store comes to mind).

    [US-TN] "FrankenNAS" - HP Z420 ZFS BYOD kit, 8x3tb HDDs

    TTT, with price drop. $300 for the whole system including the drives, local pickup (now in Murfreesboro). This has been sitting in storage so the above hard drive info should still be considered fairly accurate.

    FS [UK]: Gigabyte MZ72-HBO + AMD EPYC 7402 - £4000 ono

    Welcome to the forums... Couple of housekeeping notes...Looks like you should tag the title with "[EU]" (guessing based on the currency), as well as put an asking price for your system. Sounds like there's an interesting story in there somewhere! I'm certainly watching the Apple silicon space...
