I still need the following components:

Western Digital 1TB Green Hard Drive with 64MB of Cache
Another 2GB of PC6400 Memory for a total 3GB
Cheapest SATA DVD Drive I can find.
PicoPSU-80

I would not buy the 64MB cache green drive for use with server 2k3. I believe this is the WD10EARS, part of WD's new "advanced format" drives, which uses 4k sectors. Server 2k3, along with XP & WHS, will not like the 4k sectors. You have to jumper something or other. More here:
http://forum.wegotserved.com/index.php? ... -wd-align/

Also, unless you really need 3GB of RAM, just replace the 1GB stick with your 2GB stick. The D510MO doesn't support dual-channel memory, so there's no performance gains to be had with multiple sticks. Just extra power consumption if your applications don't use it.

I have the same case in my build here

http://www.silentpcreview.com/forums/vi ... hp?t=58201

im using a pico psu with a intel e5200 with 2 full size drives and have idle power usage of 33w , so i think your build with an atom and 1 drive will be less than 40w

Hmm the WD10EADS appears no longer available through newegg... Closest similar drive is the WD10EVDS:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6822136496
The EVDS is *not* the new advanced format drive. It will work in older operating systems out of the box. Don't buy it without doing your own homework though, might be something I haven't seen.

Might be helpful - how to read a WD drive model number:
http://www.wdc.com/en/library/2579-001028.pdf

Otherwise, you can jumper the EARS drives to trick your OS into thinking it's aligned.

Sweet! Lucky the one in your build doesn't have the window on the one side huh? I'm not too fond of gamer looking cases....I like things to be very simple.

Oh yeah definitely it probably would add some extra load, I think even with the extra ram stick, I'm shooting for 15w, but even if I'm at 20-21 idle, it shouldn't be too bad.

I just looked at the cost of the kilowatt in the state where I am moving to, and at 20w, it will cost 91 cents a month to run.

Sweet! That means probably with the router, 15w +/-, I could run both for a dollar and some change each month.

I put the picture up with it painted, and the metal baffle removed, and I like it a lot more. I may end up adding a 80mm slow spinning fan upfront just to be sure.

yer my case is solid, im not really a fan of case windows tbh

the front looks much better now the inside has been painted :)

i dont have a fan on the front of mine, i just have 1 at the back, if i put my hand in front of the grill at the front i can feel air slowely getting sucked in.

I just started this type of project myself.....
Going a little more crazy, though...;)
I bought the Asus AT5NM10-I & the 3ware Escalade 9500S-4LP (PCI-X RAID)

The Plan is Loading Freenas onto a 2GB CF card with sata adapter, plugged in the onboard SATA plug.
3x 1TB WD Green's in Raid5 on The Raid card + 1 500GB WD Green for
downloading torrents.
Also thinking of sticking another 500 WD Green on the last SATA onboard,
just to backup the REALLY important stuff on the R5 array...(pics & tunes).
Been testing over my Gigabit net, and I get between 80-90 MegaByte PS write speed to a temp. Raid0 array...
The board just jumps to 50% CPU use...:)
Really surprised by the NM10 chipset & the D510 CPU...:)
Jus wish I bought with PCI-E and Dual GB LAN...maybe later...;)

nice build.

I'm building a similar toaster NAS.

Shuttle K45
2x 2TB HDs
Pico PSU
92mm Nexus
D510

...and yes, these mITX boards are fun to work with.

Yeah! will post some mugshots when the last couple of parts arrive...
The coolest part is an OLD AT case (sorta like mATX, only it's not..)
The Mainboard won't be an issue...:) but still a lot more parts going in..
