I dig your case choice :). You should show us what it looks like inside.

This has been updated a little since these pictures were taken. I'll update here when I take new pictures.

It's a custom wood frame build roughly based on this guide. https://tombuildsstuff.blogspot.com/2014/02/diy-server-rack-plans.html

My build is a 16U instead of 20, I omitted a few of things like wheels (furniture movers work just fine on wood floors). I don't have a real use for a rear door either.  

IMG_20180928_145632.jpg

I built something similar.  Like if a 9 year old had tried to build what you built, that's what mine looks like.  I used MDF.  Is that safe to use?  How do you know how much weight it holds?  Maybe I'll have a larger friend sit in mine.  I was going to put 2 servers in mine, but now I'm afraid it could break.  I also wanted to add bracing in like you have built into your rack design but also braces the sides.  How do you add brackets inside and have them sit flush with sides?  I never could get it right and sanding it down to fit takes forever and then I feel like I'm either pushing the side walls out, or will be too small.    My caster holes were not drilled into a 2 by 4 bracket inside like yours are.

 

In how bad shape am I?

Why build one when you can build 2 :)

What is inside? I like the case. Can you break it down into parts ? Much appreciated.

Build this little beauty in the beginning of last year and i am still loving it.

The chassis is a bit expensive but the best case i have ever had my hands on: well designed and thought out: simply fantastic!

A huge shoutout to "spaceinvader one" and everybody in this community introducing me to docker (which i completely neglected since its implementation in UnRaid) what makes this build more versatile than i could have ever dreamed of.

What do your temps look like? Considering things can get pretty hot when parity check kicks in, i am curious. This definitely looks great!

Hi ezhik,

Temps are fine!

I have given the WS2019 & Exchange2019 VM all Cores and sometimes when a CU needs to be applied while theres plus 30° C in my office., the MoBo realizes that the CPU is getting to hot (above 80° C), beeps and cycles the CPU down until the reboot.

That happened as well when the missus put arround 5000+ 4K-Photos in the PhotoPrism-Share after our vacation, letting it render thumbnails in various resolutions until <BEEP> 🙂

 

Despite that:

Wether the CPU nor the Seagate Hdds ever got too hot during patity check, but unfortunatly for me, tests indicate that they don't last very long:

HDD reliability test

The Samsung nvme never exceeded its temperature limit.

 

Nonetheless i would love to have a CPU-threshold for VMs and Dockers in percentage instead of simply reducing cores in UnRaid but that belongs somwhere else 🙂

 

But anywho:

When the cube gets too hot for a few minutes:

Cold blow of a  Hairdryer will do 🙂

 

Best,

Ron
