My first build. This is a Plex server based on JDM_WAAAT's NAS Killer 4.0 build guide.

MOBO, CPU and RAM were used from eBay. 8TB HDD was shucked from an Amazon Warehouse WD Elements and is actually a white label WD80EMAZ. I did have to use tape to cover the 3.3v pin which I was surprised about since it is a new PSU. Wifi card was from a friend's old computer. Everything else was bought new primarily from the local Micro Center.

Will update with Plex performance once everything is set up

How are you liking this build? I'm considering roughly the same thing.
