Fractal's new Define 7 XL has an enormous capacity for hard drives, so it only makes sense to build and deploy a 4K editing NAS to compliment our recently built 4K editing workstation. For about $1000(not including the drives) you can build up this system and add up to 20 drives, like Segate's Iron Wolf Pro line. Using Unraid or ProxMox you'll be able to manage your data effectively.

    I tried connecting 8 x 4tb drives on my ryzen 5 pc running on b550 mother board, using a pcie to 4x sata card, and it runs only 6 of them. Other details, I am running rtx3070 on x16 slot, and 2x 1tb nvme on both m2 slots. What is wrong that I am doing? Are my pcie lanes full? or can the car be a fault. In total i have to run 8 x sata hdd + 2 nvme + rtx 3070.

    There is nothing cost effective about this build. for the average individual or team. Cost should play a factor. Yes i am a subscriber , and have seen many of of your videos. this video is of more entertainment than reality , at least for a group wanting to start out with video editing solution. A more budget friendly solution might work in some cases. ( for most WD, Seagate, ETC doesn't send 15- 20 drives to random people and say here use these.. the drives here at current market are $12000.00 @ 20 (16T drives). non the less the video is worth watching and very informative.

    I think 20TB would be plenty for myself. Until the time I get a 4K TV, a 4K camera, become a video editor. Etc. But I only have a phone, it's 16gb, and adding a 64gb micro SD doesn't help much when most apps need to install and work on the internal eMMC, and apps on the microsdxc actually cause slow down and temporary black screen and issues.

    You do know that you be needing hdd blowers that sit between the hdd's they call the hdd fans |f this was going tobe used as a game storage system you would like 1/3, 1/2 3/4 or 1to1 space capacity in ssd because whilst the main game might be set on another raid drive it still installs a part of the game core in windows directory on c drive.. for 320GB it garners the question whether or not the for 4+ 100TB ssd run as primary OS drive otherwise you are looking at 5 pci-e cards at m.2 sata or nvme at 8TB a piece within the 16x slot.. I think in future we might something similar to the phys-x cards release using fast nvme as a caching system using sli bridge .. as we are now pushing newer technologt in graphic making the nvidia standards obsolete at 24GB ram.. new graphical features taking up more space on the i suspect we are going to see 1TB installs per game with 4khdr latter 8k hdr with the other mods and dlc content I do have to wonder how much storage would use need just to hold pc/console/commodore family / tandy family and the rest on a server or nas system using consoles as the front end access
