J4005N D2P build with pictures
I'm new to pfsense.
After I got sick with commercial home routers,I've been looking for something different.
I love gaming. Ping issues are a real pain and overall ability to control and maximize connection are in high demand.
I plunged in to pfsense about a month ago.
Building my rig from spare old parts.
Used i3 with 4 gigs and sata ssd which were laying around. Added micropower supply and 12V power supply and saw the magic happen...
Enjoying my rig - it died. Probably because of the power supply arrangement.
Decided to buy new, dedicated hardware.
I used J4005N D2P from Gigabyte. It has an integrated ,dual core celeron cpu.
Which is ,for my opinion is a good sweet spot in terms of price,power consumption and performance. Added the static cooling and I got a winner.
Added M2 SSD. also from gigabyte but anything would fit here. It's an overkill, I know, I just like the small footprint.and its relatively cheap.
A full size ATX power supply is used.
Picked a semi modular gold rated PSU for efficiency and low temps.
Added pcie gigabit NIC.
Added LCD for data and fun. Utilizing LCDProc.
Fixed everything on a plate and covered with engraved plate I made in my homemade CNC.
Im delighted with the results.
Just a hint: no one can see your google drive links.
Sorry for the broken links.
I'm good with computers. but not so with my cell...
I like that casing though!
