You should be aware of how much power this board uses on account of the PLX chip and 3 x Intel X540 NICs, even at idle. It's orders of magnitude more than a thin client or the likes. Expect 50W+ when idle.Been looking for a cheap thin client for PfSense for a couple of months now. Might just get the bare board. Will have to find a smaller case. 1U server is overkill for PfSense. Don't need the 4x3.5" bays for sure.
Well I haven't been able to find a reasonably priced thin client for some months now.The BIOS I posted earlier is the only one. I figured I might as well host the manual too: https://drunkencat.net/misc/X10SLH-LN6TF.pdf

I actually ordered a Node 202 for the same purpose. I will need to do some high level Dremel-FU though (need to cut some of the internals to make a clearance for the motherboard and maybe to holes for some extra 40mm fans to get the air moving).
I don't think you can get away without some dremeling, It looks like the motherboard sits in a mATX sized depression so it is possible that the extra 30mm of the motherboard PCB will come in contact with the metal parts of the case. Looks like you might need to cut off parts of the optical drive cage and a piece of the motherboard "tray".oh a fractal focus mini G is on sale now too:
Again, I think you would have to remove these optical drive bay's too in order to fit the motherboard. And again I can't tell if that's possible.
Fractal rep on reddit confirmed that case would be a badarch for this board. The node 804 is still a contender though.I don't think you can get away without some dremeling,
Nope the 10gb-t is integrated in the motherboard.And can I even swap that NIC for sfp+?
What is this "Ragebone" project or system?
