Description

Usage:

NAS, Plex Server, Syncthing, NodeJS, etc.

Planning to run:

Ubuntu Server w. Docker for services.

Issues / Notes:

  • Power supply is the loudest component, and I left a high ceiling for wattage. I'd prefer something lower and preferably fanless (or with truly quiet fans). Still, I'm getting a noise floor around 44db with the case open. Also, it is a very tight fit, but it does work in this case despite warnings.
  • Adding more than two 3.5" drives will require reconfiguring the intake fans. Running 2 120mm intakes requires removing the flex cage. I don't have immediate plans to add more drives, but it is a limitation.
  • OCZ Vertex drive was a leftover. I'd switch to something better if I didn't have it already.

Adding more than two 3.5" drives will require reconfiguring the intake fans. Running 2 120mm intakes requires removing the flex cage.

Why is this the case? (no pun there...) What setup would allow using the full stack of cages?

Dope!
