Hi again jebus_beler,
Unfortunately it looks like the Lian-Li is not available locally anymore (in Paris) so I need to consider alternatives. I'm hoping to get the components very soon since I need to get a backup/file server going. Any suggestions for an alternative case?
Sorry to hear you cant get Q08, thinking on the similar looks or functionality, check Lian Li Q25
(no optical drive, but one more 3.5 hdd and 5 of them are hotswapable), here is a review, TweakTown Lian Li PC-Q25 Mini-Q SFF Chassis Review
Lian-Li PC-Q08 case
Be Quiet! 300W Pure Power L7 PSU
2 GB DDR3-1333 RAM
WD Green 2TB
Depending on the OS you chose for the server 2gb might be fine, WHSv1 runs fine with 2gb, but some do benefit from more memory, so reseach this before, as memory is cheap this days. On the CPU, i would also consider the Intel Celeron G530 Sandy Bridge
, for a pure file server should be more than enough and you save some money over the G620.
