Re: Silent home server with InterTech SY-608 and 4 HDDs buil

Oh and any idea why the HDD LED isn't working? I tried connecting it both ways (normal inverted) to the MoBo HDD LED pins, and nothing is blinking.

Silent home server with InterTech SY-608 and 4 HDDs build

Hey dudes, I managed to put my home server system together today. Here is the story. The previous server had a cheap MoBo, an intel celeron dual-core 2GHz CPU, 4GB RAM, and 4x1TB HDD's using software RAID5. Running Debian 7. I decided to upgrade the CPU to a six-core AMD 6300 FX, and had to get a ne...

Re: Some questions on Fractal Design Core 3000

I've recently upgraded the CPU and MoBo, and the latter has an ATX form factor and doesn't fit in the old case, so I need a new case. Why didn't you get a mATX board? I wanted extra RAM slots and some extra SATA and this is all they had. it's a good mobo, MSI 760GA-P43 FX Socket AM3+. I picked up t...

Re: Some questions on Fractal Design Core 3000

Well, as it turns out, I lost my job today (don't worry, I'll be fine), so I'll have to go with the cheapest option, I'll just get the $55 InterTech SY-608, rip the elastics off some old underwear to mount the HDD's, and just chill. I won't add a HDD fan right now, since there is enough space in the...

Re: Some questions on Fractal Design Core 3000

Thanks for the replies guys. I am currently undecided, like a woman. Another way I would put this is that it will not be good at noise insulation but this is only an issue if you put loud components in it. Slow moving fans in an open mesh case can be quieter than fast moving fans in a very tightly c...

Re: Some questions on Fractal Design Core 3000

That case has an open mesh front so it's not designed for quiet operation, but if the parts were really low noise it could still work I guess. Otherwise look at cases like the Define Mini or Define R3/R4 for instance. The drive sleds are metal but yes the rubbery buffers are the point of contact. D...

Some questions on Fractal Design Core 3000

Hi guys. I've been looking for a case for a home server solution. It sits in my room so it has to be silent. I've had a regular cheap case so far, with a silent fan (ARCTIC COOLING Freezer 7 Pro Rev.2) and PSU (SEASONIC 430W S12II-430 Bronze). It has run pretty silent, the only noise being the HDDs ...
