v12 Posted December 14, 2021 Share Posted December 14, 2021 I had a need for a bulk storage unit for big data experiments at home. Since I already had a pile of drives I chose to build a ESXi server around them. Paired up the 18 2TB SAS disks with 128gb mem and a server motherboard running on a single 750 watt power supply. For the 750D case the internal 5.25 drive bays were removed with a Dremel to make room. It runs silent on a single 750watt power supply and has no heat issues at all even under constant load. Temperature wise it runs way cooler than I was expecting so now it sits over there in the corner with only 1 cable to the wall for power for a fully self contained unit. There is a LED strip around the edge on window side of the case that cycles colors. The only thing that would have made this better would have been a case without the 5.25 drive bay modification but one wasn't available at the time of purchase for the price range I was looking at.
