I was staring at mine when writing that post, the level of excitement just...plummeted. :D

 

I'm really passionate about server cabinet build outs as you can tell.

 

I still debating between using that piece of furniture from target (or something similar) or a small server cabinet and putting it in a ventilated storage closet.

Honestly the Mac Mini is already built for higher temperatures so I don't think you'll have to worry about it being ventilated. I'm a pro-active person so I would put it in the target cabinet, use a hole saw to cut a hole out for an AC fan and just use a speed controller to make it barely noticeable.

Try Ikea? There are a tons of options there.

 

I'm thinking about getting rid of my vertical A/V cabinet (takes up too much room) for this http://www.ikea.com/...6530/#/20206533 , to house all my A/V equipment under my TV.

I know cross posting is frowned upon but I am looking for some help, opinions, etc.. and maybe this is a better area for this.

 

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?

Yeah, with this

I am just not a fan of ikea furniture.
