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... ;-) ):
Looking forward to this one, the computers sections would have been the other place to post it.
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.
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?

for a simple life, perhaps consider not doing so in future
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.
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:
and the actual setup part:
Back to guitars for the next vid or three.
