I definitely have m3x20mm. I'll be trying to install a Noctua NH-L12 when I decommission my existing server. But it it don't fit, o well. TBH my CPU will probably sit at sub 5% load 99.9% of the time.

It's that 1% you'd want to count when the CPU Frequency spikes and the load kicks in :)

Finished the drive cage mod. Trying both the rear and fan as intakes and use positive pressure for an air to find way out. GPU temps are 3C loader. Everything else is a few degrees warmer.

NIce, I could have used that when I got my G5. I removed the HDD to make room for a front fan and installed a 2.5" SSHD instead, but would have just moved the HDD to this if it had been available... :)

What are you running on this beast, what OS and what is the use-case?

Ubuntu Server 21.04. It is replacing an i3-3220 ITX system as my home server. Runs a few of containers for media + home automation (plex, sonarr, jackett, rtorrent, mqtt, node-red, unifi, upsmon).

The RTX3060Ti is just for mining.
