For future build Network Attached Storage
After my external seagate backup HDD DIED! I plan to have this build to prevent the future to fail again.

Question: Why choose Node 304 as a case?
Answer: Fractal Design Node 304 offer a compact ITX case that offer 6 hard drive slots. and some aesthetics.

Question: Why intel atom or amd e350? why not core intel core i3?

Question: WHy Pico PSU?
Answer: Same as above, to save some power usage.
