I know there are many of you that are familiar with what would work, so I'm reaching out to the experts.


Thanks for your advice.

Thanks. That looks good. I don't know for sure what I'm doing right now. I was planning on doing a pull out shelf, putting the server, with monitor and keyboard and mouse on that, but I have since rethought that, and I think I"ll just put the monitor, mouse and keyboard on top of the rack. The server will sit on a shelf inside the rack. I just don't know how much weight a pull out will take. The PC/server is fairly heavy with 2 mechanical hdd in it, plus it is well built.
Thanks again, I'll look at that rack.

well the LAKRAK i think that was what they were called was good because it magically fit a standard u width wise.
Looking at the OP tho, he has nothing standard width.

Maybe just going to home depot and getting a MFB assembly shelf would be a better idea?
You can get doors on it.

Only thing is see tho is you may want to blow out some circle holes on it to improve ventilation.

I still like mxnerd's first recommendation tho.
It keeps it nicer looking, more professional like, and its prevented.
Also the cage allows for innocent casualties of war of happening from per say a CAT, or a DOG, or a curious baby who is starting to develop bad habbits and is falling in love with RGB and flashy blinky lights.

Actually, OP has a switch that would be great with the lack rack and then the rest can just sit under it and the monitor and keyboard on top--nice and compact too.

And to keep away 'problems', just stack it with another lack. ;)

A lot of those Lackracks seem to be really nice, with glass doors, etc. Only problem is lack of ventilation.
I'd go with a couple of 360mm fans on the back through some sort of filter. Maybe undervolt them if necessary.
