Default Server Build Parts Check

I am finally decided on how i am going to be building my server now i am just a little sketchy on what parts i should pick up. I am going to be running flexraid so i will be able to use the onboard sata 2/3 controllers without the need of spending a lot of money on raid cards and have a decent amount of hard drives right now.

CPU: i3 (not sure if i should go 1155 or 1156) Needs to unrar 10GB files faster then my slow my htpc amd tri 45w TDP processor
MOBO: Depends on cpu
RAM: 4 or 8GB of standard/stock RAM
PSU: - Buy Seasonic M12II 520W EPS12V 20/24PIN ATX PFC 80+ Bronze Modular Connectors 6PIN PCI-E 120MM Fan - Seasonic Electronics - M12II 520 - in Canada
