@gigatexal: Got a link to that case?
I should have pics of my D8000 build soon, waiting on some parts for the finishing touches.
Snoop it was your post on the unraid forums that pushed me off the fence on buying the D8000. I haven't tallied up the total project cost yet, but it's high lol. The hot swap adapters are redic expensive.
What CPU heatsinks are you using, and are they touching the mid-plane?
Thank you for the kind words, mine are the Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO. Yes, they absolutely do touch the tops of the heatsinks. Right now that piece is out but I will be putting it back in there the next time I have a chance to bring it all down. The server does so much it could be a month when I have everyone log out of the servers, etc.
Can you fully screw the mid-plane in with them installed? My D14 is 2-5mm too tall and I need to find a replacement,preferably cheap, but an OC'd FX-8350 isn't as easy to cool as I would like..
Great weekend project!
Compact case too! I have been eyeing one up
My wife and kids weren't amused they couldn't watch any of the stuff on it for the last day or so though.
You just described my setup exactly. Except I don't keep everything on my offsite, just the high-priority stuff.I guess this is why you need a ZFS rig. And a backup ZFS rig. And a backup of the backup, offsite. Just incase the Mrs wants to beat you because the NAS is down
Also, a look at my PWM fan controller that makes it all silent
