What factors should you consider when choosing a CPU for a FreeNAS server? What are the implications and limitations based on CPU in this context?
Currently I'm looking to build a FreeNAS server with 4x 3TB drives in RAID5 that would be accessed by 1-2 users and I am unsure about what CPU to go for.
I am considering a G530 but don't know if there would be any benefit in a better processor?
Other options include G620/G630, G840/G850/G860, and i3 2120. Would the G530 be insufficient? Would the i3 be overkill?
The server will be fitted with 16GB 1333MHz DDR3 RAM.
