I am mostly finished my new pfSense unit so I thought I would put together a post. This is based on JDM’s original pfSense build post.
I built this second one because I wanted to go rack mount. I also painted it to match my Unifi gear.
|Ram||Corsair Value Ram 4GB 1333Mhz||5|
|Cpu Cooler||Dynatron K2||20|
|SSD||Intel 120 GB SSD||0|
|PSU||Supermicro 260W PSU||0|
|Fans||Noctua NF-A4x20 PWM x3||45|
This was a pretty enjoyable build. I also took some time to design and 3D print a motherboard backing plate and a fan mount.
The only negative experience was that my first motherboard died a month into service so I had to find a replacement.
