hey, this is my pc:
this is my new i7 setup on the crappy test bench i made
oh and tape on cpu cooler because it eats fingers......and cat tails
@ mrpg8 nice setup dude all clean n tidy, hey did you buy or mod yourself those sata cables
@ TheGrapest hey if it works it's all good right and I know just how ya feel about fans that eat fingers got one of mine munched by an old 6k rpm delta fan once albeit there were a few choice words bellowed at high pitch when it happened
my mATX project is finally finished!
Now I can move on to another project...
Beautiful work there
You know sumthin HammerON,you and your camera get along very well together.I always enjoy your pictures.Very pleasing to the eye to look at all the time.Love the lighting and how the blacks and the chrome always contrast nicely.
Very nice, but it look really big for mATX. That's an odd sized case. I kinda like it. Would be great next to the entertainment center as a Server/HTPC.
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 )
