To moderators I am going to show a lot of photos and may need to make consecutive posts. To 2009 mac mini owners any model can be turn into this setup.. Make for a very good Home theater machine. In typical fashion on the eve of the 2011 mini I finished my mac mini 2009 2x esata hack. It runs a pair of 3tb western digital hdds as osx 10.6.7 no server. I have about 20 photos. I had it working since nov 2009 but it was hidden away in a HT rack so I never made it look good. wire management was bad and it was loosely stacked. Then when i was going to make a nicer looking setup the 2010's came out they were not going to work well with this double hack. So I let it sit as a mess until about a week ago. here are final shots of the double esata stand for the mini. The esata stand has 2 sans digital enclosures each holds a 3tb western digital hdd. each is seen by the mini as an internal 3tb boot drive. Both run osx 10.6.7. I used two aluminum plates 1/4 inch thick purchased on ebay cut to 8 inches by 10.5 inches. I used 2 oak pieces and 12 stainless steel screws/and finish washers are stainless steel. The oak rails are short by intention. This allows the plates to hold the two drives very tightly. the top plate is flush against the drives and is a heat sink the bottom plate has four soft acusti feet from quiet pc. the drives are fanless and pretty cools and quiet. Note that the esata cable can be tucked in a bit to manage the wires better. I use two power supplies one for the hdds and on for the mini. The mini is missing a hdd and a dvd so it runs cooler. I removed the white plastic top to run the cables out. this top is not the oem top I purchased it on ebay for 20 bucks. I can turn this machine back to stock in an hour.
