Hi everyone!

I've been looking into unRAID for a while now and would love to start a new Project. My idea is building a system inside my "IKEA Alex" and use it as a Server/NAS/PC.

It should be upgradable as new stuff is on the horizon, hence the B550 Platform. I also have no clue if it would accept the EEC, even tho it's on the QVL. Is unRAID fine with component constellations like this?

Parts I would buy:
Asrock B550 Extreme4, AMD B550
AMD Ryzen 5 3600X "Matisse", 6x 3.8GHz (4.4GHz)
2x Kingston Server Premier, 16GB (KSM26ED8/16ME)
Gigabyte GV-N166SGAMING OC-6GD Gaming OC, GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER
Crucial P1 SSD M.2, 500GB (CT500P1SSD8)
Seagate IronWolf NAS HDD, 6.0TB (ST6000VN001)
Seasonic Prime TX, 750 Watt (PRIME-TX-750)
Noctua NH-D15 chromax.black
2x Noctua NF-A20 PWM chromax.black.swap

Parts I have around:
2x 6TB old Seagate HDD
3TB old Seagate HDD
250GB Samsung SSD

Update just because people have been asking, yes I've completed the build.
It sits inside an IKEA Alex with a button on the side connected to a Raspi to power on my gaming VM.
Had a few days to set it up with GPU passthrough but its working fine now.

I have a question. I just moved my Unraid setup to a new m/b and cpu. I now have it running on the same motherboard you have, the Asrock B550 Extreme4. Did you have any issues with the ethernet? If you didn't, are you running the 6.9 beta version of Unraid? I'm stuck and this seems to be the answer. Thanks!
