Finally got parts in and did a little electronics origami.
In case anyone is interested, my parts list are at the top of my GitHub how-to (work in progress as I proceed with software setup). The plan is to run OMV with MergerFS and SnapRAID.

It is a personal home project for fun. https://github.com/seanwo/how-to/blob/master/pinas/pinas.md
