How to build a FreeNAS box the bit-tech.net way!

July 23rd, 2010

Bit-tech have posted an excellent tutorial on “How to build a NAS box” which includes both the hardware aspects and the software, which in this case is FreeNAS.

“A NAS – or Network Attached Storage box is the easy and increasingly popular answer because you can simply drag and drop files to/from any PC… NAS boxes are a very low power way to store masses of data, while also giving everyone on the network access to that data.”

As they go on to say there is a certain satisfaction from doing stuff yourself.

The tutorial covers:

  • How to build a NAS box
  • The Best NAS Hardware: Hard Drives and RAID Cards
  • The Best NAS Hardware: CPU and Motherboard
  • The Best NAS Hardware: Memory, Case and PSU
  • BIOS Setup – Underclocking and Undervolting to Save Power
  • FreeNAS setup
  • Using FreeNAS for Bit Torrent
