Re: Home lab, aka the 32 headed beast

Why are you going to use 3d printed brackets?

Re: Home lab, aka the 32 headed beast

Because my case only supports 4 disks, and I want to run 8 with a fan blowing across them to disperse heat...  And it would allow for better cable management.

Re: Home lab, aka the 32 headed beast

Nicely done Sir!

And yes, we are in agreement of the pain of installing that monster ENERMAX cooler; I was hesitant to put it in the front, because I heard/read that top installation is preferred, but I had no room in top, and the only way to make mine work was to use some tools and remove the HDD and SATA built-in enclosures, which means my case is pretty much hollow inside.... I am using NVME drives so I didn't have to worry about placing SATA SSDs anywhere, but still, proud.

Great job, cheers!

Re: Home lab, aka the 32 headed beast

Neat workstation yet 32 heads nah it only has 16 as being 16 cores with 32 threads stilla 16 core CPU and not a 32 Core CPU, many tend to confuse threads as cores which they actually aren't.

Other than that, would be a nice render system with some  Radeon Pro WX9100's Are you looking in to getting a TR 2990X in the future?
Would suit this system quite well

running virualization.. threads matter more
