Front installed (have to do something about the open 5.25" hole)





Everything assembled:





Turned on for the very first time:




Now I reached the part were it's all about software, I am not a software guy so this is the absolute tricky part for me :(


Stay tuned to see the final pics whenever I finish it up :)

1)
It seems as the motherboard is faulty somehow, no matter what I do it refuses to boot from USB (but I will though have to test with a boot cd and a drive one of the coming days).

2)
My wife got very sick and had to give birth to our daughter 5 weeks before time, so ever since the previous post I have been taking care of my two girls. Both are fine by now.

3)
Because of 2) we have moved the living room furniture around and it's no longer ideal to have a server below the couch, so I need to find another case to contain it in.

4)
Because of 2) I now have many pictures and video I would never be able to recover if anything happened to my storage media, so backup is utterly important now! I need to backup to the cloud for off site solution and peace of mind. (unRAID can not do that, so I am going the Linux route now).

5)
My primary Mac Mini have now moved from a desk to the sofa area and are therefor now a HTPC solution, therefor I need a server capable of running Plex (transcoding not important).

6)
Want something easy, plug and play without major surgery - a Hackintosh Lion Server would have been top nice, but no mITX seems to be supported. My eyes caught the Lian Li PC-Q11A case and that's what Im going for with my current 5 TB drives (will add a few 2.5" drives in the near future for somewhere between 1-2TB more storage).


To be honest I had first seen the PC-Q07 because it is absolute cheap!
But I would have to do some very strange things to it:


Cut out and make rom for the MB in the bottom, plus cut some mesh sheet to cover up all the extra holes in the back.


Barely fit one of my Lian Li drive cages inside for up to 3x3.5" drives but no PSU (would have to be externally or pico PSU).


The box to the side is the normal ATX PSU I am using, tiny tiny case!


...but after drawing it I realized it's not worth the trouble.


THIS is much more doable:






(trick photos, not actual pictures)


Cherry on top - I can even fit my DVD-burner in the case! Have an old Lacie D2 laying around not really using it because it's not primary connected and too much trouble to do so whenever I need a DVD/CD...

:clap:

Stay tuned, this time it will not take forever before things happen (I hope)
