I have used one of these if anyone looking for a more cost effective enclosure. $13.29 at time of posting.
They also have bigger boxes.
Bunnings

The board in the base is a4 size.

Looks neat and nice to see lots of room in a enclosure.
Are exposed 240v crimp terminals on the right hand side?
What size cable have you got from the PSU to your F8 power distribution boards
Just keep a eye on the temp also as those HP server PSU's can get warm.

Not trying to be picky etc just a couple of my observations and overall I like the layout.

Thanks and yeah have put heat shrink on the terminals - was a before i did that photo :)
The cable is power lead cable to F8's. Was tossing up whether to put bigger......
Ordered a fan, just waiting for it to be delivered.

I was investigating this yesterday and it was a limited playing field. Best I could find was this PE1663PI but I thought it to be a bit of overkill.
Having leads hanging out is a bit of a pain, but I was going to just have a short female plug hanging out and put one of these over it whilst in use.

I really like your solution especially considering it's for outside use.

@cdjazman is that a chopping board on the bottom? Is it secured to the tub? If yes, what did you use?

Nice!
I’m using the same box but the slightly bigger 32L model.

I went the bigger box because I’ve gone horizontal rather than vertical with my boards and power.

Iv got the 50ltr one for a projector box build,
Officeworks also carry them (in clear) where bunnings seemed to only have the smoke coloured,

Yes it is.

Not secured to the tub. I have used "make a bracket" from Bunnings to secure the power supply to the board.
