Hey guys just watched an episode of Hak5 and found out how to build a router.

Now i need a mini-itx mobo pref with Intel 1.6-1.8Ghz Dual.

Also I need to build either a NAS or a SAN and need 1.5TB drives. would like to go with 4 if possible dont have to be from the same person.

Looked at Newegg and aint willing to drop 150+ for a 1.5TB when a month ago they were ~50.

I have 2x Mini ITX combos in my thread if you are interested in those. One is an E1200 Celeron dual core, other is an Atom D510 dual core. Also have a Seagate 1.5 SATA II pulled from my server (upgraded to a 2TB while prices were low), but what were you looking to pay for one?

How much do you figure it is worth?

I don't want to make you lose money on the drive but at the same time I don't want to pay more than it is worth.
What would you take for it shipped? Also, what is the Aprox age and the model/serial of the drive?

I might take a stab at that Intel Zotac. It would fit nicely with the router config. I plan to use Smoothwall so If you can find out if the NICs are compat with it it would be great.

Honestly both boards were used for various sample projects including smoothwall, freenas, carputers, and low power servers (datadumps or webhosting). I can't recall any particular issues, both of these chipsets are well supported in their targeted field and the Atom boards in particular tend to get tier one dev time since they are so affordable and so low power. The Atom board uses a RTL8111DL controller and the Celeron board uses a RTL8201EL controller and to the best of my knowledge, and some quick searches on the smoothwall forums, both are supported. Though, as both boards only have a single ethernet port, you will need to add in a secondary ethernet card as you will be required to have 2 ethernet ports for any hardware firewall configuration.

Honestly the hard drive I havn't thought of selling until I noticed I had one laying around. I have dozens of drives ranging from 160-320gb that I would rather part with first. The drive is in an external enclosure somewhere, I think I just left the data on it when I swapped the drives as a backup in case anything went wrong with the 2TB it replaced. The drive wasn't very old, could still have a year on the warranty. Believe it was a Seagate Barracuda Green. I'll track it down and get the rest of the info for ya.

I have 4 new 1.5TB Samsung F3 (?) drives that I have no use for right now. Never been plugged in, still sitting in their OEM boxes from newegg. They are yours for $425 shipped with USPS Money Order payment. My heat is under aubsxc. I also have 8+ years of 100% feedback on iTrader at EOCF. Send me a PM if this works for you.

well, ~106/HDD seems a little high since I bought an F3 1-2 months ago for 50 on newegg.

Yes, it sucks how much prices have gone up in the last few weeks.

I actually bought these drives over a year ago for a project that didn't happen, and I think I paid about $85 ~ 90 for each. I've hung on to them since I can always use it later and also seeing how much prices fell in the months since the purchase.
