Alot of other miscellaneous stuff i had laying around from prior PC builds and such, fans, cables, the case, so on so forth. I couldnt have done this, especially flashing the LSI card without help from people on the discord server, especially @seanho and a couple others. Im a total newb to all this server stuff and unRaid so its a nonstop journey for me…
