I’ve been wanting to build a home server for many years now. I’ve worked as a System Admin and Network Admin and never had a home setup to play with.
Randomly came across ServerBuilds.net on Reddit and was lurking for awhile. The NAS Killer 4.0 just came out and I saw a post about a deal on what would be considered a NAS Killer 4.1, so I jumped on it. Then bought everything else. I had some stuff laying around from desktop builds that I reused (fans, SSD, case, HDD).
Went with Unraid for the OS, because while I want something I can mess with, I don’t want to spend all my free time troubleshooting. Unraid is simple and straight forward.
