freeNAS build

This build was on my to-do list for almost 3 years. I also thought about buying one of synology 4-bay NAS units recently but decided against it. This freeNAS build has more room for future upgrades. Also the main reason is i just wanted to build a PC, missed it for so long.

Thanks a lot to folks at techenclave for helping me to finalize the build.
