DIY NAS Setup with Fractal Node 804

Plex server / Game Emulator / Home Storage

Needs to be able to transcode a few 4k --> 1080 remote streams

Planning on using Unraid as OS

Curious if my build sounds solid and if you have an alternative MoBo or PS suggestion

Node 804
ASRock Z690M-ITX/ax LGA 1700 Intel Z690 SATA 6Gb/s DDR4 Mini ITX Motherboard
Crucial Pro 32GB (2 x 16GB) 288-Pin PC RAM DDR4 3200 (PC4 25600) Desktop Memory Model CP2K16G4DFRA32A
i5 12500t or i5 12600t
9207-8i PCIE3.0 6Gbps HBA LSI FWTongue20 IT Mode ZFS FreeNAS unRAID 2* SFF-8087 US
1tb m.2 (already have)
RM750x Shift Fully Modular ATX Power Supply

Hoping for a system that will last for at least a few years and be expandable/upgradable in the future. Had initially planned on a smaller N-100 build but am thinking the i5 will give me more room to grow.

Thanks for any advice you may have! Your articles have been super helpful!,

Thanks for reaching out! Your overall setup looks really good, especially with the choice of the 12th Gen i5. It's a powerful CPU that should handle even heavy 4K transcoding tasks with ease. With Unraid as your OS and the other components you've selected, you're likely to have a robust and versatile setup that will serve you well for years to come.
