So what's the approximate cost for that equipment?  Just curious since I
don't have any clue what stuff goes for since I'm not in the habit of
building systems.

> Finished the initial build and running Memtest now. Parts:

> Motherboard: ASRockRack C236 WSI. One of the few Socket 1151 Mini ITX
> boards out there with ECC. Also, eight 6Gb/s SATA III ports on the board.
> CPU: Intel Core i3-7100. Reasonable price, reasonable performance,

> ECC, go fig).
> RAM: Kingston ValueRAM 2133MHz DDR4 ECC, 8GBx2. High performance RAM in

> Drives: 4GB WD Red NAS Storage. These will be swapped out of the
> Synology box. I'll finally be converting back to ZFS from Btrfs (the box
