Finally finished my first PC build for vMix and here are the details for others that decide to build a system.

vMix road case system for remote streaming that is usually in SD because of the remote locations of the events we cover.
The plan was to cut costs and save some money on the video card and processor, but it can be upgraded quickly if we start to get better bandwidth, by adding a i7 processor and new graphics card.

Gigabyte Z170MX-Gaming 5 Intel Z170
Intel Core i5-6500 3.2GHz
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 ti 4GB OC Version
600W ATX Rosewill Modular PSU
1 - Internal 128 GB Crucial SSD
4 - Toshiba OCZ TRION 480GB SSD - In hot swap cage
ICY DOCK ExpressCage SATA Hot Swap Mobile Rack no tools or screws
Blackmagic Decklink Duo 2
2 Blackmagic Decklink Mini Recorder
1 Blackmagic Decklink Mini Recorder 4K
32GB (2x16GB) DDR4 Kingston HyperX Fury auto clocked to 2666MHz
Norco RPC-432 4U Short Depth Rackmount Server Case
Windows 10
Vmix (No other software installed)

Here are some pictures, going to add a keyboard tray in the bottom 1U space and move the PC up one in the rack. Also when the photo was taken of the back only the Deckling Mini 4K was installed.

So far testing with 4 1080 inputs it has been fine with the decklinks downscaling the inputs to SD. Everything I have tossed at it seems fine so far.
I will report back once I do some more testing with production setups and graphics, B-Roll etc.

I like this cases. Hope some day to make my own. Its easier to carry stuff. I saw bigger cases on some games in profesional streaming teams. Two people carry it, it has wheels and just open it and inside there are two PC's, screens, cables etc. Looks nice and it's quite quick setup.

Can you provide us with the outer case model? Does it have wheels?
