Build/Rebuild WHS2011 transform Mid ATX PC CASE to HTPC CASE, any suggestion? RRS feed

  • Question

  •  I’m thinking to transfer the size of the case to HPTC case size. I’m not sure whether the air flow on the case would be perfect fit for my build.  The Server will streaming HD video contents 24/7 non stop while sharing file to other client computer 24/7 as well.   So if in this case will my build okay with the airflow and keeping it cool most of the time.  So any suggestion?????

    Thank you

  • We really can't advise you on whether a particular hardware configuration will deliver sufficient cooling or not, I'm afraid. I will say this, however: if airflow is a concern, I would choose a case known to have good airflow with multiple installed drives. 

    I'm not on the WHS team, I just post a lot. :)
