Tuf NAS

This is my DIY NAS. This was built during the year my media PC kept having motherboard issues and I sent it back to ASUS four times. The media PC was supposed to buy my Plex server, I planned to have it plugged into the TV and turn it on to watch Plex or play games. I ran out of space for movies and this computer was built quickly. I harvested my 3800x from my personal PC and borrowed some RAM... From my computer...

This PC has been a great success and I want more out of it. I have been leaving it on a shelf and I use the TV to tell it what to record. I'm still setting it up after installing Ubuntu server. Plex and the TV tuner works. I also have cockpit to manage this PC.

I installed nextcloud and halfway through the installation, the NAS shut down after 10 minutes and keeps shutting down on me. I let it disown and I came back the next day to a GUI and no terminal, so I had to wipe and install again.
