NAS Killer 4.0 Feedback

I wanted to make a small Windows PLEX server / Karaoke & Bingo system. My major requirements are.

  • Case must be a 2U chassis for mounting in a 6U rack. 4U already consumed.
  • Motherboard must have VGA & HDMI out to connect to operator screen & TV’s & projector using HDMI splitter.
  • Motherboard must have audio out to connect to a stereo receiver.

Picture for imagination.

Here is what I decided on, as I had some items laying around to use.

Please let me know what you think.

Hi. I am also looking to do a 2U build. How did yours turn out? Did you stick with the Z2700?
