    Hi.

    I need your thoughts on a project.
    I would like one small, lightweight, low power, always on - machine. It needs to serve as, NAS, plex server and support light gaming. I think I will be running only OSX on it, but might go for a dual boot.

    I'm thinking of a used mac mini ( or a Minix z83-4)
    ) , connected via usb3 to a multiple hdd case like this:

    https://www.ebay.com/itm/ORICO-9558...095926&hash=item3d5a5eb46e:g:q6kAAOSwYytajJBN


    or what about using the:


    and then run the disks as a RAID system, and let the OS controll the RAID stuff.

    Anything I should be aware of?
    Is it a good idea?

    Thanks:)
