  1. 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.
