so i have half of my old rig just sitting around and think its time i start planning on how to spend my tax refund. id like to set up a headless NAS in my basement, been using my Pi2, but transfering hundreds of gigabytes of files around the network over usb2 is painful
Budget: lets try and keep it around 500 usd, but i do work, and have great credit so dont mind spending more Location: usa Use (Gaming, Rendering, etc): NAS Peripherals required (monitor, keyboard/mouse, etc): i have spare mice keyboards and monitors, also i dont have a case, but i dont really need one,m the rig will be setup in my basement out of sight until i can get a free case from someone or snag one on the cheap. Operating System required: nothing required i havent decided which NAS OS/software im going to run yet, probably something free..
this is what i have already, the ram/cpu/mobo are just parts simmilar to what i have, the mobo on the list is the exact model i am working with. so have it at guys and gals, build me an NAS. feel free to ask any questions. I will try to check in once or twice while im at work tomorrow, no promises.
edit- almost forgot, there is a pretty beefy aftermarket cooler on the cpu already so i wont be needing that.
