Hi nothing in particular, just seeing if anyone else has more to add.

Iv'e actually decided based on the advice from here and others that having more power for Plex and i am going to use the box for other things so have decided on the below build:

Yes it's completely different and does not have ECC but i am going to be doing very regular backups to disks that are separate from the NAS so if i do get corrupt data, it's not an issue.

Trying to get parts new with ECC at a reasonable price and in stock was making things to difficult.
