Small PC for ESXi (or ProxMox) Home Lab


New member

Looking for some assistance, i'm looking to build (or get built) a home lab. My two main requirements are :

1) It's small / discrete
2) 256GB RAM (at a push I'd could go to 128)

Ideally a mobo with 2 Nics and also 2+TB of SSD in RAID, not too bothered about AMD vs Intel. I run ESXi with about 10-15 Win / Nix hosts so need a bit of grunt

I currently have a UM690 from MinisForum but this is no longer sufficient

I'm really struggling to find something that fits the bill, could anyone spec one out for me please ? Budget is around £2k-3k
