4 ports. You need 100TB minimum to farm. 4 DAS should work.

You can buy 25-port powered usb hubs, pi has 4 USB ports, so roughly up to 100 drives. Only caveat is, on top of powered USB hub you need to have a powered SATA->USB adapter for each of your drives, so it gets really really messy real fast. Look up "pi 4 chia farming" there are a bunch of good writeups. You will still want to have a dedicated machine for plotting as pis are painfully slow for that.


Pihole is super lightweight and pi zero is plenty to host it. I started with pihole on pi3b and worked my way down to pi zero w. Right now I am running pihole and dhcpd on pi zero w, using 2.4GHz wifi, powered by usb port on my router with average cpu utilization around 40% with no noticeable difference compared to pi3.

Depends on your use case. A desktop consumes more electricity, larger, noisier, but is more powerful for desktop applications. Pi's are opposite plus has GPIO header for projects and expansion HATS.



The Aluminum edition case appears to be a remarked FLIRC case, which was the original Pi passive cooled case, but IMHO the newer Argon Neo, iUniker, and Geekworm passive cases are superior. They tend to have contact sinks for chips other than the cpu on the Pi that produce heat, and gaps for GPIO and camera ribbons. Search "pi 4 passive aluminum case" on Amazon for examples.
It's overkill for the pi4, but pihole [pi-hole.net] is amazing. It's a network wide spam filter. No more ads on mobile
I'm pretty sure that's what they were trying to say with the "overkill" part, though to be fair they didn't word it well.

At these prices, why not just buy a desktop?

I'm seeing a 20% off coupon on the extreme Kit, making it ~ $120 + tax. That seems like a SD.

GPIO. One has it, the other does not.

Are any of the options a good deal to run a media/backup center? Have a 12TB external disk I could use for storage.

These are the everyday prices. I have the 8gb which is overkill but it works flawlessly as a media streamer. I friggin love this little thing. It comes preloaded with libreelec as an option and that works as a kodi media box. It's awesome

The 4GB or 8GB would work. I don't use a 12TB disc but I've been running a 4TB media server off my 8GB for the last 9(?) months or so. Been flawless. The 8gb is overkill though, at least for media streaming.
