Homelab Setup

Netgear Cable modem that overheats if it doesn’t have a fan attached to it

PFsense system: Celeron j4005 cpu, 4 gb ram, HP 4 port network card. Added a 60 watt Pico PSU to the system. It runs entirely fanless now. With no ATX power supply, or large heatsink/fan combo running on the motherboard, it's time to find a smaller case for this machine.

VM Box running Windows Server 2012 R2: Ryzen 1700 (with a fun looking cooler!), 16 GB of ram, several hard drives. At the moment it just runs Plex, PiHole, and several test VMs. I'm updating it to Windows Server 2019 soon. I work in a Windows server shop, so most of my projects focus on Microsoft environments. I'm starting to like Hyper-V.

Lastly one of my Oculus Rift sensors.
