From the maker of the Xbox to Mac transformation project comes another superb build. This time, he’s shoved over 16TB of hard drive space within roughly the footprint of a standard shoebox. As usual, he also provided extremely detailed build videos documenting the entire process (watch it below).
The 8 hard drives supply over 16TB of space which is more than adequate for even the most avid data collector. A 120mm single fan keeps the drives functioning at a workable temperature. Power-wise, the unit performs better than you might imagine, using just 90watts under load, writing at a respectable 88MB/s with 266MB/s read speed.
