2017-07-28 Already doing a casemod on the new home server 11 months ago
The new homeserver 2017 has arrived and I'm working on installing it. But first I had to do my first 'casemod' which was just rerouting a few cables. The case comes with a fan control, but I want all fan control to come from the mainboard and monitor the fans from the operating system. So I disconnected the fans from the case fan control and reconnected them to fan connectors on the mainboard that allow for voltage based fan control and monitoring. The case is a bit overkill, but looks really good and offers lots of routes for airflow. New to me was that the case has cableguides which allow it to look really nice internally and have really good airflow. So I used those cableguides when I rerouted the fan cables and even tie-wrapped the cables to keep them looking nice.
