its not really that big, here's a size comparison compared to me, I'm only about 5'6
Ahh, that does put it into a better perspective. It is smaller than I thought. Would still be perfect in the HTPC/server role I think. Very nice build.
thanks bro! I've seen a bunch of people make this lian li pc-a04 their HTPC/server case, so I thought I'd raise it up a notch...
i did it myself
Don't mind the mess. I've been putting this pc together the past few days and I have crap all over the place but this is ATM for sure.
they look good as mate
Right, as I promised, some more pictures.
It's an HP Proliant ML350 G4 with 2 Xeon's at 3GHz (codenamed Nocona, I think they are based on the Prescott die), 2x2GB DDR1 ECC RAM, the power supply is 725W, disks are all SCSI U320, first three are 72GB with 10k RPM, then there is one with 300GB and 15K RPM and another 300GB with 10K RPM, I also added one SATA disk (250GB) with an Adaptec 2810SA SATA controller (which I think was bought when they first came out, It did cost a few kindeys but who cares ), and at the end there is a Ultrium 460 tape drive (200GB native capacity).
And yes the front USB is 2.0
The bottom controller is the adaptec, the other one is the HP Smart Array 641
This was really strange for me when I took off the cooler from the CPU for the first time...there is no TIM, the cooler is directly on the CPU.
btw, whats that little thing with the heatsinks besides the cpu's ?
It's a VRM module used by the second CPU, some servers have 2 of them for both CPU's like my DL380G5. It's better to have it this way because if the VRM is on the mobo, you have to replace the whole mobo (if the VRM dies).
exchangeable VRMs.... how neat is that? i want that in desktop boards too!
do you have a build log?
pm me plz
CRT for life.
there's a project log, but since I'm filipino, there are a lot of comments that you won't be able to understand (I posted it in a local forum site, they use the filipino language), I did post it in english though... and most of the pictures were taken by a camera phone, so you might not like it...
hahahaha, love the tape.... looks like its so fucking fast it exploded...
.......very clean build bro! I love it, do you have a link to your project log?
it's not really very detailed since it's my 1st log, didn't really bother with it until this project...
here it is though: (be warned of crappy pics )
More likely the only time that thing was fast was when it was on it's way to the floor LOL
still better than 90% out there man
very nice build
I made a BT project log just to clean out all the non-english comments on the local site...
wow, that is some very nice work you did there man, i enjoyed it alot, thank you.
Been a while since I posted in here, so here it is:
Server (10 TB):
looking good Cyber.
how's that Cougar PSU?
No problems at all. Quiet and idles with a low power consumption.
Got another 4 gb of kingston ram for £30 quid.
So got 8 gb now : ]
Hopefully will come in handy when I start editing videos again.
