Hey guys, share your cool, interesting custom wall mounts and cases with us and we will reward the best ones. Ready. Steady. Go. T-shirts and stuff are waiting so bring it on.
Good one, thanks for posting. Also, shout out for the full fiber conversion.
Sure it does! Care to share the file for the people to print it as well?
Turris Mox ASEC (see config in Turris MOX Configurator) mounted in 19" 3U network rack vertically mounted with USB-RAID Disk-enclosure.
Cool cool, thanks for sharing!
Awesome. Literally "boot"strapping (y)

An AP, that integrates neatly into the environment.
Turris MOX PAB(WLE1216v5-20) PoE-driven and with external pitails mounted via small mounting brackets on the bottom of a shelf on the top of a spiral staircase. The shelf itself is partly hidden and offers various USB-cabling for charging our dear devices. Due to the design of the spiral staircase one does not perceive the shelf from below, and from above MOX and cabling are invisible
External antennas are hidden within a plastic plant.
ps: the cable tie is needed to hold the case together as the cables are sturdy and therefore exert a distinct pressure on the housing. The only other option would have been to drill the holes for the RPSMA-jacks on the long edges (which would hold the pressure without an issue), but that was no option due to the length of the (preexisting) cabling/orientation of the shelf.
edit: this is also some kind of case study - whether the WLE1216v5-20 will melt the MOX’ housing
Great stuff! Thanks for sharing.
I upgraded my MOX:
- removed POE-module (in favor of using it in an external housing) and thus added normal power supply
- added module D
- inserted RTROM01-RTSF-10G, now operating at 2,5GBE speed
- added propper cooling to operate a hotter mPCIe-card permanently in module B:
- reduced inner walls of MOX plastic housing parts for optimized air flow, replaced some outer walls by plastic dust mesh, opened hole to the upper surface
- applied active fan with dust filter and fancontrol to operate fan in whisper-silent surrounding
- replaced WLE1216v5-20 by AW7915-NP1
Even though the SDIO-wifi is right now not working in 2G-band mode with TOS6, the entire second floor of our appartment is served well with Wi-Fi6 in 5G-band.
Is the contest still ongoing?
My contribution is neither a wall mount nor a custom case, but maybe the idea is helpful to others.
Background story: for future network and setup enhancements (e.g. 24/48 port switch, UPS, etc) and the requirement to keep things tidy and organized (instead of a million devices flying around), I decided to go for a 19 inch rack. However, I did not want to use a “regular” rack due to space constraints.
Solution: a shelf (Ivar) by a “Swedish furniture manufacturer” Using the Adam Hall 61535 5U rackstrips the distance between the rack strips’ mounting holes and the shelf’s boards being in the adequate position/height is exactly (to the millimeter) the distance needed for 19 inch rack mount devices.
Result: The shelf with a base area of only 30cm * 49cm and a height of 124cm gives me 2 * 5U with a maximum depth for devices of 40cm (45 if you let them stick out the back).
Note: I have only setup the lower layer so far.
The Omnia rack mount kit I use was mentioned here: Rack mount for original 2016 TO
A non-Turris offtopic question related to my last post:
As I am planning to build a new server for virtualization and storage I am looking for a 19 inch rack mount case with the following requirements.
- Maximum depth: 45cm
- Height: 2U (as I do not want to use loud 40mm fans)
- Option to mount 80mm fan(s)
- at least four external hot swap bays for 3.5’’ hard drives, backplane should be included
- at least two internal mounts for 2.5’’ SSDs/HDDs
- only internal power supplies
- availability in EU
- TFX or SFX power supply, as ATX will most likely take up too much space
- Mainboard size support: Mini-ITX or µATX (as otherwise the size constraints will not be met)
Any ideas on models/manufacturers?
Cool stuff, @alpinum1030!
My Turtris project is finished Internally it gets a Wi-Fi card (AW7915-NP1) upgrade on two routers (which I actually use) and all get a LED seperator installed soon.
