Fractal Define XL R2 - Titanium Grey



Below are the specs of my Home Server. Built in early January of 2016. The server is running Linux Mint as a host and has the following installed VMs.

  1. Domain Controller
  2. SQL Node 1
  3. SQL Node 2
  4. SCVMM - (System Centre Virtual Machine Manager)
  5. TFS - (Team Foundation Server)
  6. Exchange Server
I selected the case for it's simple, elegant design and high density noise-reducing material. An ideal case for building my extreme system. I chose titanium for this build as I already have a black pearl version for my development machine.
