RockPro64 Case 2x3.5" HDDs and 2x2.5 HDDs

Everything else you need:

Optionally eMMC:

80mm fan:
There currently isn't a 80mm fan in the store (there will be in the future).

If you can't find a compatible one where you live, then get any 80mm 12v 2 pin one and find Jst 2.0 Ph 2-Pin connectors. They can be obtained on the cheap where I live. Clip the existing wires and solder / or exchange the plug.

There are obviously other extras you may want to get for the future, such as the WiFi/BT module, etc. but I won't account for that as many will not find it something necessary.

80 mm fan:
I have to admit to some confusion about fans for the NAS enclosure. The 80 mm fan was recently added to the product pages and seems to have 2-pin connector. This might imply that the Rockpro64 board regulates fan speed by reducing voltage on the fan power connector. Can anybody confirm this? It also implies that only a single fan should be configured in the enclosure - no heat sink fan. Personally, I would prefer to have a pwm case fan with its own controller.

I am awaiting the arrival of my recently ordered NAS enclosure. I had ordered a midsize heat sink with a 20mm fan on top - thinking that case fan was a second fan in the enclosure, and was included with the case. Obviously, I was wrong. It would be very helpful, if the NAS enclosure product page was updated to show the parts list for a complete project.
