    Looks really nice. I used to have my server in a little Lian-Li case that had a ton of drive bays, but ultimately I got sick of having to unscrew about 30 screws from the side panel just to get into the case and then drive access was a mess. How do you like FreeNAS so far? I'm using WHS2011 w/ drivepool + SnapRAID. I just didn't feel comfortable switching to FreeNAS with the way you have to expand it and my historical process to buying new drives (aka buy a couple whenever they're on sale).

    I don't have any pics of my current server, but its a tower w/ 3x 4-in-3 hotswap bays. Pretty quiet, but not exactly pretty or compact. It lives in my closet so I don't really have to worry too much about either aspect tbh
