Serves mainly as a NAS, but also as the host for Plex, HomeAssistant and some other stuff.

          I choose to believe it’s 2003 and everyone envies how much storage I have.

        My trick is setting a monthly saving for this a few years ago. Today me thanks past me.

        Also, I started out with 2x 4TB in raid 1 in my previous server. Or really just an unused desktop with a 1TB disk before that.

          My very old HTPC which acted as a home server died a couple years ago and I just never replaced it lol. So my “server”/NAS is well, my own PC. Thankfully my 3800x/32GB RAM doesn’t seem to mind too much.

          Worst thing is, I’m a senior/lead developer, I’m very familiar with server administration, networking, provisioning and all that stuff. I just… never got around to it, I guess? It’s just expensive enough that I don’t want to get buyer’s remorse. I don’t really know what I want lol. I’m thinking Plex (although I want to move to Jellyfin) and Radarr/Sonarr/Lidarr. But also Docker and/or TV a small K8s cluster for personal projects and self-hosting some stuff… basically some general purpose thing?

            It’s why I went with TrueNAS. It has built in support for VMs and containers in K3s. So far it’s been super nice. A lot to read up on, but you seem to have the same background as me so it should be fine. I find it fun!

      I searched far and wide for the perfect chassis. Silverstone make some awesome stuff.

        Yeah, the quality is really good. It’s also not cheap. I bought this case mostly because it’s rather shallow and did fit into my previous server rack.

        I’m now at a point where I should buy another drive cage but I’m a bit hesitant to spend 150€ for it. Well…

        Edit: Any reason you decided to go with a non-server mainboard without IPMI and ECC support?

          My thoughts exactly! I recon that I’ll probably keep the case the longest of all, out of all those a hardware.

    Damn, Red Plus really are the best, so quiet.

    I really wished they made them 20+TB (I switched to Exos X20 and was pleasantly surprised with the noise profile … tho my expectations were preset to low).

    Awesome, what server chassis is that?
