What operating system are you running on your microserver to allow you to run pi hole?

I am running proxmox hypervisor with a small LXC pi hole contain...
i think it's running normal, Debian linux.

With regards to cooling, I think I'm gona get this bad boy.

As much as I want the Ice tower cooler, is it far too expensive to ship, and I would still need some sort of case or protection.
Im just gonna do this:

quick and easy and cheap as hell.

Looks cool AF but a bit of an overkill.

I threw my Pi4 into a Pi3 case. Connected up a Pi-fan (5V 200mA). The Pi4 was idling at 37 degrees. Results from a stress test are below:

Code:
pi@raspberrypi4:~ $ ./temp_test.sh
STARTING TEMP:  temp=37.0'C

ROUND 1 START TEMP : temp=37.0'C
ROUND 1 START THROTTLE INDICATOR : throttled=0x0

Time to complete stress test:
real    1m26.505s
user    5m45.860s
sys     0m0.021s
ROUND 1 END TEMP : temp=52.0'C
ROUND 1 END THROTTLE INDICATOR : throttled=0x0

ROUND 2 START TEMP : temp=52.0'C
ROUND 2 START THROTTLE INDICATOR : throttled=0x0

Time to complete stress test:
real    1m26.092s
user    5m44.193s
sys     0m0.031s
ROUND 2 END TEMP : temp=53.0'C
ROUND 2 END  THROTTLE INDICATOR : throttled=0x0

ROUND 3 START TEMP : temp=53.0'C
ROUND 3 START THROTTLE INDICATOR : throttled=0x0

Time to complete stress test:
real    1m26.458s
user    5m45.739s
sys     0m0.011s
ROUND 3 END TEMP : temp=54.0'C
ROUND 3 END THROTTLE INDICATOR : throttled=0x0

ROUND 4 START TEMP : temp=54.0'C
ROUND 4 START THROTTLE INDICATOR : throttled=0x0

Time to complete stress test:
real    1m26.463s
user    5m45.701s
sys     0m0.031s
ROUND 4 END  TEMP : temp=54.0'C
ROUND 4 END  THROTTLE INDICATOR : throttled=0x0

ROUND 5 START TEMP : temp=54.0'C
ROUND 5 START THROTTLE INDICATOR : throttled=0x0

Time to complete stress test:
real    1m26.484s
user    5m45.830s
sys     0m0.011s
ROUND 5 END  TEMP : temp=54.0'C
ROUND 5 END THROTTLE INDICATOR : throttled=0x0

FINAL TEMP:  temp=54.0'C

Communica used to have an Pi 3 acrylic case with fan for R95.

I can't see why these need to be so expensive.

Are there any Pi projects that don't need rocket science to make work?

I tried a project that said it would control a camera and purchased the relevant camera from their list. It was a Canon IXUS

After several hours entering and checking the code I connected it to the camera via a USB cable. The camera switched on but the shutter remained closed. A programmer friend looked at it and spotted several errors in the supplied code that he fixed. This time, shutter opened once but not again

I'd also like a project where I don't have to buy expensive additional kit

So far I have got a media player to operate in that a Mac will send the audio to the Pi wirelessly and then the USB output will attach to a separate DAC

Thank you
