    Hi All,

    Just a quick 2 part series showing a little project to secure my network using a rack mount enclosure and some CNC. I did think about posting in the recent Windows 10 thread... ;-) ):

    Thanks Lee

    If you can, move it on over to the computer section if you want (I don't think I can do this myself?) - I've had a few requests to do a pfsense setup tutorial, which I'll start doing shortly (its quite easy for a simple setup via a wizard), but its very powerful once you start to dig into the menus.

    Cheers

    Chris,
    Nice one! I've given your videos a thumbs up.
    Did you consider some additional venting/ducting to actively place incoming cooler air where you most want it?
    Regards,
    Nick

    You think that's too expensive? You're not a Model Engineer are you? :D

    Hi Nick

    Thanks for the likes and yes I did consider doing another vent pattern under the motherboard so the cooler air would get sucked up under that and vented out the top. However, I don't think I'll have to, as according to the management console its running at 26.8 deg C and hasn't budged yet. If it does get near the limit in the future then I'll CNC drill the holes.

    I've found on a few other consumer rack chassis that getting shot of the noisy and probably cheap crap 40mm fans and putting a 120 or 140mm fan in does wonders for cooling in switches etc.

    Hi all,

    A bit of an update - my dual layer setup provoked a bit of comment, but I was asked so did a couple of setup videos:

    Networking part:



    and the actual setup part:



    Back to guitars for the next vid or three.
