Not your typical NAS server

Decided to downsize my homeserver into smaller size. Picked up motherboard and CPU long time ago, planned to build server with 8x HDD. 180turn happened after I picked up beefier SSD.

Using server as HTPC: it's easy to justify that box runnin next to TV.
-Can it play PC Games? Easy with 2070RTX.
-Can it work NAS? 10G network and 15-20Tb of space total.
-Can you use it as server? 14 cores/128Gb of memory with enterprise SSD.

All that in small 18Liter box, that is quite silent. I was thinking if I should post my thread in HTPC or Server or SFF forum.

Specs:
-Sliger Cerberus
-Xeon E5-2683v3 (14 Cores @ 2.0Ghz)
-128Gb DDR4 2400 ECC REG.
-Asrock Rack EPC612D4U-2T8R
-Asus RTX 2070 Dual Mini OC.
-Samsung PM1725 NVMe 3.2Tb
-Seagate Nytro 3330 15.36Tb SAS SSD
-Corsair SF450 Platinum
-Few SSDs and Noctua fans.
-ESXi 6.7


Motherboard got 10G and SAS controller integrated onboard.
Three PCIE slots work as x8/x8/x8 when you use both controllers. I'm perfectly fine running 2070 RTX off x8 slot.
PM1725 is crazy fast drive (6000MBPS), it uses PCIe 3.0 x8, so effectively on par with modern PCIE 3.0 x4 drives.
Server supports all the possible enterprise features I might wanna play with, like SR-IOV and multiple namespaces on that SSD.
CPU Cooler is Noctua C14s: lots of clearance there. Runs cool, even with 14 Core CPU.

I'm running bunch of VM for work and testing, but so far:
Windows VM for HTPC: RTX and USB controllers passed through into that VM so I can play on my TV.
OMV for storage, SAS controller passed though. OMV provides access via normal shares, NFS, FTP, tftp and etc.
around dozen various VMs.

I didn't have banana for scale, I'm using bottle of champagne for scale instead. Case is 18L.

I have always loved small builds. I like the idea of so much power being damn near invisible in the house. Love it.

I notice the runs cool part, but is it quiet? That is usually the issue with small power builds in my experience. Trade size for noise.

Runs very quiet. All fans are 500-800Rpm. Videocard stops its fans unless I'm playing games.
