This is my NK4(ish) build. It’s going to be running Unraid and will function as my off-site backup target for important docs and system files. Prices are all CAD, tax and delivery included. Anything in brackets shows my current market/budget price, but not yet purchased. Most items have been sourced off ebay, coming from China.

Most of the parts won’t arrive until later in January. I’ll update this post with pics and pricing as things come together.
