Will it FreeNAS? is a sub-forum where you can post a system or parts list you are considering purchasing for building a FreeNAS system.

Before you post make sure to read the hardware guides. It's important to know the minimum system requirements for FreeNAS when asking a question. We also have some helpful links to help understand some basic concepts when using FreeNAS. Read more at the following links below:

FreeNAS Hardware Minimum Requirements
Ericloewe's FreeNAS Hardware Guide

Buying hardware from a number of popular hardware vendors can actually help the FreeNAS project! Any time a forum user creates a link to,,, or an affiliate code is inserted. Purchasing items from these sites helps support the FreeNAS project and also provides others with a description of the items. Remember that links to link aggregation sites and manufacturer sites do not help support the FreeNAS project.

Please remember that most of the people contributing here are volunteers helping out on their own time. Please use the Thanks button when they provide good information that helps you make an educated decision on your next FreeNAS build.

Thanks and good luck on your next FreeNAS build!
