I’ve just found this site, and I love what I see and have been looking at the build guides. I’ve noticed that they’re obviously tailored towards the US or Euro market. I am in Australia, and would love to be able to have my own NAS killer build without blowing the bank trying to ship stuff here. Has any aussies done this? any recommendations on local ebay/amazon stock?
I currently have a Synology DS415+ - it’s my second one of these after the first one bricked after 4 years (was the intel atom bug, they replaced it out of warranty at least). I have always been interested in having my own unraid server, and want to go that route. My budget for this build is as much as I’d pay for a DS918+ ($750 AUD).
I do have a Dell Optiplex 9020 with i7 4970 and 16gb ram sitting around + 2 x Lian Li PC-P80 big boy cases sitting around too. I won’t need to buy any HDD’s for the NAS build, I am just looking for the parts. I’d love the possibility of 10gb networking, but I can understand if it’s out of my budget. I mainly use my NAS for storage, plus a bunch of dockers (radarr, sonarr, ombi, etc).
