One of these just might be needed as my home NAS quite (only 50-60 GB of files, and on only 1 GbE network, of course!)shortly! :)
Two socket mobos have lowered in pricing, so I would rather take two zen2 epycs for much cheaper price. For example if EPYC 7543 is 95,7% of XEON Platinum 8280 (Passmark=37575 and EPYC 7543 therefore ab. 36000) for ab. 2/3 of the price of 8280's USD 16000 > so. around USD 10000, you can easily buy dual socket Supermicro H11DSi-mobo for USD 500 and 2 pieces of EPYC 7282 processors (each passmark=31525 and total ab. 63000 with a price of USD700 each) SO YOU SAVE AB. USD 8000 AND CAN LAUGH ALOUD ON YOUR WAY TO THE BANK!!!

He was joking as indicated by the smiley face. Who would use a 32 core Epyc system for a home NAS? For the price of the CPU alone, you could build a mainstream system with 128GB of RAM that could cache his entire current NAS storage needs (50-60GB).

I guess it depends on what you are running on your home NAS. I am running an ad company from my home, so I have 64 VMs attached via fibre optics to my home NAS running a large MYSQL -table, so for me 32 cores is perfect--the faster the better!
