Alright guys, looking for some input here. I want to build myself a freenas server. In the same hand i want it to be a display piece for the front of my shop, People can come in and just look at something that is alittle over the top and get them talking. So i will do a custom water loop.
The reason for the Custom water loop isn't for increase performance or overclocking since this is a NAS server, its just, i need storage, to store clients acronis image backups and play with some Virtualization and cloud based technologies, and a display piece would be a good idea.
Basic specs i am wanting to run
MSI workstation mobo
32gb of ECC ram
Five 6tb IronWolf Drives
500gb Samsung SSD 850 Evo for caching
Intel Dual add on Network Card
Some cases i was considering
Cooler Masters Master Case 5 Pro <--- I use this on my personal Workstation
Fractal Design R5 Windowed
.... I don't know what else.
I really which cooler master made the Master Case 5 Pro in a full tower - I think it will be difficult if not impossible to fit 5 drives plus an ssd, custom loop with Res, rad and pump and still make it look clean and open.
w/e i Decide on, the side panel will more then likely be switched to tempered glass.
