Finished building the ESXi server/NAS/homelab hardware... I think I might nickname this one "the bitch!" cos that's what it was kinda like to build in that silverstone case at times
It was actually OK up until you try to get the storage caddy back in... this is how tight it is
I had to re-configure the wiring like 3 times in the area between the pcie devices and the storage, it's just too tight... I would have been SOL trying to use the SATA ports too.
I might end up changing this in the near future. One good thing though to come out of this is if I end up using pfsense OPNsense or whatever as a virtual router, as this box is now in an ideal spot to do this.
Another good thing about this case though is that it can slot into a rack if you want, so that might happen in the future too.
Now on to trying to get all this configured how I want. It's drawing around 120-130W at the wall right now.
