Gamla eller Nya

After the stand-up firewall, my first project, I had to come up with something to make good use for the rest of the spare parts I had scattered all around.
So I decided to go for a NAS project, and here is the outcome:

  • OpenMediaVault Debian based NAS OS
  • OS boots from Class 10 SD card in a USB 2.0 port
  • Industrial mobo with mini-itx form factor
  • Intel T7300 Core 2 Duo CPU
  • 3 Gigabit ethernet ports
  • 4 SATA ports with 4 SATA disks in RAID 5 (8GB raw capacity so 6GB real capacity)
  • Two compact disk cases to hold the 4 disks together and reduce vibrations.
  • Mini PSU capable of 450 400Watts but using just 35W in iddle mode.
  • 3 different fans with their own speed control to allow reduced noise
  • 1GB DDR2 SODIMM RAM in two modules.
  • Shelve from IKEA
  • Shelve from Leroy -Merlin
  • 4 rubber legs to avoid vibration
  • Some screws and loctite eveywhere along with black paint to cover some scratches :-P
  • Massive fun :-D
Of course it has some more bits but I cannnot recall them all just now.
