ok it uses 2mmx5mm screws, I ordered some 2mmx10mm and 2x20mm screws.

Will post some pics, it has a nice blue led light inside which looks really good when the unit is as designed fully enclosed, although it leaks around my room at night with the gap I created to add the intel ports.

Some photos of what is going on. Sorry the inside view of components is blurry didnt realise until now (took 2 days ago), the right blue thing is the msata ssd, to the left of it is the intel nic addon card, in the mpcie slot which was originally populated by the wireless nic card.

The idea is I will have the base screwed on again without any slant, but with longer screws so there is a gap to allow for the new cabling and bracket to fit in place.

Looks like pfsense is lacking a lot of packages, 2 packages I will be making are nano and dnscrypt.

There seems a lot of opposition to dnscrypt for some reason in the pfsense forums which I find odd, but regardless I will convert freebsd packages to pfsense.

FreeBSD has a simple text editor called 'ee' which is quite similar to nano. You might find that meets your needs.

I know about ee but nano is my preference.

If you can SSH or FTP into the box, use WinSCP. It is then easy to double click any conf/txt files and enter text and save as easily as notepad on a PC. No skill required, unlike vi...

I know of alternatives but regardless the way I work is to use nano. :)

So I realised the 2mm screws were wrong, actually should be 3mm, and was fiddling with the bracket positioning then suddenly it was possible to get the base in place with the gap raised slightly for the pcb of the pcb bracket to fit through, I did this and its now snug (will post pics later), of course aware that a possible short could occur and damage to the nic ports, it seems fine although one of the activity leds is broken but the port is working.

As it turns out there is a repo for cli packages, but there is no list of what they got in it.

nano
bash
rsync are all there tho.

dnscrypt isnt but I installed the freebsd dnscrypt package which works out of the box.

Its unlikely I will be using my pfsense unit before christmas but I will likely do a online test tho.

Talking of monitors, don't know if you're interested but you can buy a cheap 7" HDMI  1024x600 display for about 24 delivered - for those times when only direct access will do, or simply for monitoring things.

Can do a DIY case if necessary -

I have done some more work now

configured dhcp (before asus was still managing my dhcp)
configured nat
configured and enabled pfblockerNG (dnsBL) - this on the asus is what I was using to filter malware etc. but on pfsense it is officially supported in a plugin.
configured unbound partially
configured QoS partially

todo

dnscrypt
finish off unbound
ipv6
vpn
finalise QoS

To compile the dns block list and load it into unbound is now 2-3 seconds, on the asus it took over 2 minutes.

with dnsbl active my ram usage is still only 14% of 4 gig.

QoS is an interesting one, pfsense has a different approach it takes to QoS and I am trying its supported implementation first to see if its good enough for my needs.

I'm also using PFBlockerNG, but I'm not using it to it's best. I currently have just the top 20 countries blocked (excluding UK) under GeoIP. I tried searching for an up to  date guide that explained it clearly but couldn't find one. I get people from around the world trying to hack into my remote access so I'd like to block most the world. It states "It's also not recommended to block the 'world', instead consider rules to 'Permit' traffic from selected Countries only." So if for example I selected just the UK, and changed the List Action to "Permit inbound" would that effectively block the rest of the world?

I'd be interested in knowing how you have yours set up in more detail.
