I have been interested in Windows Home Server since the product was released in 2007. My first attempt to use Windows Home Server was on my birthday in 2008. I purchasing a HP MediaSmart Server EX 470 which ended in failure. I returning the HP MediaSmart Server EX 470 within 30 days. I kept reading posts from We Got Served and listening to the podcasts from the Home Server Show which peaked my interest to build a computer and using it as a Windows Home Server. I have been running the same setup up to this week with no hardware issues but one complaint. The complaint is the limited amount of space to add more hard drives. I have reached the maximum amount of hard drives that I can add to the Apevia X-QPack which is 4 hard drives. During last year’s Black Friday sales, I purchased from Newegg.com a Corsair Enthusiast Series CMPSU-650W power supply and a Rosewill Blackbone Black Steel/Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case. I finally set aside some time to replace the power supply and computer case.
I will begin a series of articles about my experiences upgrading the computer case and power supply to my Windows Home Server.
