Plug it in baby
Any system needs power, so a low noise 500 watt PSU should be enough, as no high end gear will be used. Except 8 gig of memory and SSD.
Four screws like almost any other case.
Time to mount a harddrive.
Slide in slots for the rubber screws with a locking system. Very easy and good solution.
This way you can put in 3 HDD's and one ODD. But I want to have a SSD as a OS hard drive. Here you need some 2.5 to 3.5 adaptors and you’re done.
I see some space left behind the PSU, can we put a small SSD here?
Sure we can, and even 2 for a raid OS. But this is not supported by Vidabox.
Using a socket 775 motherboard and an Intel Celeron 352 with a 8 gig set of memory, until we will upgrade this with a new set of AMD.
As this HTPC case only has one build fan in line with the space for 2 HDD's, we can only see if this works on regular HDD's. Stressing the HDD with ATTO benchmark give me a nice 23 degrees cooled by the build in fan.
Disable this fan and using the same benchmark we got 30 degrees
Fan seems to be a bit noisy. Shutting it down was noticed by my family.
