I don't know about that particular one, but I'd be very reluctant to
use mini-itx style PCs as servers, especially if packing one with a
hard disk. I've had great fun (!) in the past in trying to remove /
replace / add components to small cases, and it _can_ be a right pain.

If you can, get something a little larger, or designed to be a server,
where it's easy to take it apart and add components without the risk
of breaking those bobbly little things on the motherboard/harddisk
