I got almost everything. Need to get some low profile blanks, and an IO shield

I mounted the 2 x 60GB Boot SSD's with velcro to save the rear slots. I figure the chance of needing to swap one is low, and I can still do it with the power on

These 2200RPM Noctua fans are providing plenty of cooling, everything is great so far. Ignore my cable management

Here is the end outcome for hardware

I still plan on doing 3 x mirrored vdev's containing 4TB disks (3 x SATA and 3 x SAS), the two Intel DC S3610 800GB will be used for a metadata vdev, and the 970 Evo Plus 1TB NVMe SSD as the L2ARC

I'm making double sure to label the drives, I never do that and then when one fails I have to play the FIND THE DRIVE game. Also I'm making labels for the physical trays

Still waiting on the SAS Disks, they were delayed! I got a good deal on them
