Quick backend story:

 

1. New house I just bought and moved into

2. House is wired for cat5e home runned back into garage

3. Room acting as office will house all of the computer equipment

 

I am looking for a computer/server cabinet that will house everything and be functional but I want it to look nice.  Almost like it is a piece of furniture.

 

I was thinking of something like this: http://www.target.co...Slot=medium_1_3

 

Any ideas?

Hi,

 

I am confused because you are looking for a functional server cabinet but linked to a target wood cabinet and please don't take this the wrong way but the two ideals are not that aligned.

 

As you can see in my signature I have ran my version of a home server in a Corsair Obsidian and be-it not the prettiest of cases, it can tuck in roughly unnoticed in the background.

 

I am sorry if I am not being helpful but trying to assist if I can.

Hello,

 

I have seen some home-made racks on various "IKEA hacker" web sites, but for something like a room you are going to be spending time in, I would think that you would want a sound proof data cabinet, which are typically finished to look like office furniture (cabinet, etc.).

 

Regards,

I like low profile cabinets. I have Corsair Carbide 330R. Minimalist non intrusive design and doesnt reek of geekiness. Perfect for a server too.

I think he wants a server cabinet, not a PC case. Unless I'm wrong.

It depends what he wants to use it for.
