I have a server rack but its inside a home office. I am running out of room in my rosewill 15 bay case. I am looking for options to expand my storage with sound being a major issue. I saw the post about making one of those rosewill caes a das. I am thinking of going this way since I am familiar with the case and sound.
I have looked at other 24 bay options but I am worried about sound. This solution could give me 15+ more drive space. Any other suggestions for a rackmount with a bunch of drives but needs to be low noise?
I had a server and found all those small fans way too loud. I switched to a standard 8 bay case and used fewer larger drives (unRaid made it easy) and now I use a lot less power and have a quiet server.
i have slowly upped the drives size over the year. i started with 2tb and now up to mostly 14tb drives. i been looking for options so i thought i would ask if anyone had any suggestions on what to buy.
if the price is right, it’s hard to beat an L4500. you could just use it stock for 15 drive bays. i would just upgrade the fans to arctic pressure optimized (120mm and 80mm), as they move a good amount of air and are very quiet.
