Light Gaming / Plex Server

by Derrick H Posted on: 1/13/2021

Build Description

I built this to take the place of an older gaming rig that I have been using as a Plex server.

Favorite Feature

The case fits perfectly in the large part of my entertainment center while allowing plenty of airflow around and through the case.
