Home Server Project - First extended UAT run

Its up for 12 hours today

# uptime
23:11:35 up 12:30, 1 user, load average: 0.00, 0.00, 0.00

Temperature is now in little control. I got one cheap HDD cooler and removed two small fans from it. Adding these fans to the case has brought down cabinet and CPU temperature to less than 60...earlier it used to hover around 70!!!
Keeping the case open reduces it further...problem with Zebronics chotu cabinet is its SMPS. The SMPS generates more heat and heats up entire cabinet. I had kept a sponge sheet under motherboard because it shorted itself before. But I think that blocked bottom went in the cabinet.
Now its removed so hopefully aiding ventilation.

After 12 hours, following temperatures are noted

Adapter: SMBus I801 adapter at 2000
in0: +2.55 V (min = +0.00 V, max = +3.32 V)
Vcore: +1.15 V (min = +0.00 V, max = +2.99 V)
+3.3V: +3.28 V (min = +0.00 V, max = +4.38 V)
+5V: +5.00 V (min = +0.00 V, max = +6.64 V)
+12V: +12.31 V (min = +0.00 V, max = +15.94 V)
VCC: +3.30 V (min = +0.00 V, max = +4.38 V)
in6: +1.58 V (min = +0.00 V, max = +1.99 V)
in7: +1.77 V (min = +0.00 V, max = +2.39 V)
SIO Temp: +43.0°C (low = -127.0°C, high = +127.0°C)
temp2: +53.0°C (low = +40.0°C, high = +70.0°C)
temp3: +47.0°C (low = -127.0°C, high = +127.0°C)
cpu0_vid: +2.050 V

Not bad at all!

Managed to create and configure Apache with a self-signed certificate. The web page is accessible from outside world. But for few minutes, the pages stop serving from internet domain. Not sure why. If I used the DDNS provided, it works flawlessly.

Need to check with ISP if they can provide static IP. I had requested that in application form but they nicely ignored it :) Bunch of craps...

Good to see things moving a step everyday ! makes me happy!!
