Inwin server case build

  • Inwin case
    ASUS Prime H310i-Plus R2.0 board + 315 W PSU
    8GB Kingston DDR4
    Intel Pentium Coffee Lake G5400
    Samsung Evo M.2 256GB OS drive
    4x4TB WD Red NAS drives RAID 5


    Room in the case for 2 more 2.5 HDs or 1 + 1 x 5.25 slim optical drive with add on PCI SATA card which I have on order.


    Working well and liking OMV and just about every problem I have had has been solved by looking in the forum - thanks to those behind the OS.

  • I'm just using the case fan you see in the pic and the stock CPU cooler. A couple of things I learned is with the mobo I have you need an NVME M.2 or else you lose one of the SATA ports - luckily found this out in time. The case has LEDs on the front for LAN 1 + 2, HD fail etc but with a non-server mobo there is nowhere to connect then up to. And I had to get a tiny speaker to hear the restart beeps etc. Pretty pleased with it so far.

  • If anyone is interested in this case I have just added a 2.5" HD in the dedicated optical drive space with a cheap DVD -> HD/SSD adaptor commonly used in laptops. There is an offical adaptor made by Inwin but I had no luck sourcing it.
