A while ago the power supply in my home server explosively let out the magic smoke ( BANG! *puff* ).
I put a new PSU in the computerbox today and was very pleased to see that nothing else died in the 'splosion.
Disks are all okay!
I was, however, reminded how horrible it is to work in a PC case with no cable management provisions and 6 SATA storage drives.
The case is an old, cheap, CoolerMaster case.
One day I'll switch this machine to my Fractal Node 804, which would contain the 6 drive server machine much more comfortably.
But rebuilding my server in a different case just to make cable management easier is not something I'm super keen to do.
Perhaps when the day comes to retire this old AMD AM3+ motherboard, or when I switch to 5 * 2TB RAID array ( 5 * 1TB at the moment ).
