Did you do anything special or was it a regular install? I have mine waiting to do the same when I get home.I got my 6005/i226-v box in. Installed prox mox without issues. I will repaste this weekend and do some tests and finish installing everything. Anything that you guys want me to test?
Just tossed in a 512gb nvm and 8gb of ram. Instantly popped up usb and install went through! Just haven't had time to finish.Did you do anything special or was it a regular install? I have mine waiting to do the same when I get home.
So you removed the alu block and stress test the nics and all was good?View attachment 24161
gonna answer myself, yes removing the alu block helps, during stress testing max temp with turbo seems to be around 72°c, but i noticed that the standoffs keep the mainboard make good contact with the copper block also, at least half a mm.. i have to find a way to sand them down evenly to let the die touch the block/case like it should.
Can you please test pure pfsense to see if the i226 are recognized and if they run stable under load?I got my 6005/i226-v box in. Installed prox mox without issues. I will repaste this weekend and do some tests and finish installing everything. Anything that you guys want me to test?
I'm not entirely happy with current box (still learning 3D design/printing), but rubber feet are definitely planned for final version.Perhaps venting on more than one side and the HDD not resting on the top, give the bottom plate some slots and raise it off the resting surface with some silicone or rubber feet too for both air and vibration?

I agree with what you are doing there to deal with large storage requirement but I hope I won't need to do this. I have other PCs running in my home network so hopefully i'll be able to leverage the network storage shares and some softwares to sync/backup stuff.I do admit that my first attempt at 3D is not going to win any design awards, but messy? In my book it can't be messy if it's square (see attached photos) And it's certainly cleaner than separate NAS box with separate ethernet and power cables (besides NAS with 2.5Gig interfaces aren't going to be cheap).
Now I have single 14 TB HDD in external enclosure attached to my home router via eSATA interface. It's mostly used for backups + media streaming and is not heavily used. Router is configured to spin-down HDD if it idles for longer that 5 min. External enclosure has no active cooling, but never runs really hot (hdd is rated to work up to 60C, and I think it never reaches that). So my plan is to provide decent passive venting and avoid using fan.
I don't think building 14 TB nvme storage would be economically feasible (I'm not even sure that nvme storage of that capacity is for sale). So I'm stuck with HDDs.
This leaves me with 2 problems:
1. I'm not sure if mini PC can provide enough power to feed 14 TB 7200 rpm disk. I've verified that internal power connector provides both 5V and 12V. Also I've ordered 60W MeanWell power supply. If internal power connector would prove to insufficient to run HDD, I plan to use 12V->5V step down converter and feed HDD directly from DC power input.
2. Event enterprise grade HDDs eventually fail, so I would like to have at least RAID1. Since mini pc has only one SATA connector I've ordered M.2 -> SATA converter. If converter proves to be functional, I'll have an option to build RAID1 or even RAID5.
Easy way to test would be to disconnect the SATA drive and see if NVMe_P1 shows back up in the BIOS. I expect that it won't make any difference. These boards are just very finicky about what NVMe drives will work together (discussed in many of my earlier posts).One of my NVMEs comes from the 'mini PCIe to NVMe' daughter board and when you put that in, it seems to become NVMe_P0 and I expected the other one to become NVMe_P1, but NVMe_P1 isn't showing up and I'm wondering if it's because I'm using the SATA 2.5".
Just like @cat2devnull said, ppl who are trying tu use Dual Samsung NVME SSD's are having issues of having both SSD's being recognized by the system.Is anyone running both the dual NVMe(s) and a 2.5" SATA drive?

On a different subject ...
I knew the spinning rust 2.5" wouldn't really fit in the case natively because it's a 5TB one and they are the thicker 15mm drive models, so I tried a motherboard standoff to see if they were the correct thread and they were. The rest is history!
You can get a little carried away with making gaps for the airflow as the standoffs of course stack!
