NK4 Build - Canadian Edition

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.

Notes:

  • The 9207 is actually an upgrade for my main unraid machine. The Fujitsu card currently installed in the main rig will go in this build.
  • Drives were bought on a ServerBuilds group buy about 18months ago, ~25 ea

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