    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.

    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 :roll:), and at the end there is a Ultrium 460 tape drive (200GB native capacity).
    And yes the front USB is 2.0 :laugh:

    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.

    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).

    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...
