Wish you were on the other coast, I would have driven 6 hours for this! LOL

Side question, without exhaust fans doing a static pull, how can you cool this monster quietly? Or is it on of those things where you just need to blast it with air and hope it pushes the heat out the back.

Good question on the cooling: While in the datacenter we had chilly AC that was plenty when combined with the high RPM fan array inside the chassis. In the DC we had no issues with drive temps using 7200 RPM drives. Once pulled from DC and had running as a sort of backup-backup array in our office, we had swapped to 5400 RPM drives and zip tied some USB fans to the rack door to ensure airflow/lots of LFM into the chassis. No issues then either.

Nice, thanks for the info. I always wondered/worried about this.
