Yet Another X2M NAS

Yep... its another NAS build log...

Decided it was about time for me to grow up and build a dedicated NAS instead of using my Everything Server Thing for well... everything.

I currently have 7TB worth of storage (non RAID) and its been bugging me for a while because I have movies, t.v. shows and games split on different drives but the t.v. show drive is pretty much full and I hate having to put my overflow onto the other drives because I like to keep things simple, so I thought I'll build a NAS and to have one big RAID array and that should keep me happy for a while (till I fill that to tongue.gif).

I'm hoping to have this finished by February at the latest but we'll see how that goes, I'm also trying to keep it under $4000 AUD total, again see how that goes.

The Parts

Gotten = , Ordered = , Waiting to order = .

CPU / Mobo: SUPERMICRO MBD-A1SRi-2758F-O .

RAM: Kingston 8GB KVR16LSE11/8KF x2 .

Case: Caselabs NOVA X2M .

Fans: Noctua 120mm NF-F12 2000RPM

Drive Cages: ICY BOX 4bay hot swaps x2 .

OS: FreeNAS .

OS Drive: SanDisk 16GB Cruzer Extreme CZ80 .

Storage HDD's: Western Digital Red 4TB Full 8 .

PSU: Corsair CS550M .

RAID Card (AKA passthrough): LSI 9240-8i and cables .

So yeah... that's basically it, I'll be linking to important posts in the table of contents and adding dates of orders / deliveries or big part changes in the update history and final pics below.
