    Ugh. I haven't got the time or inclination to provide support for systems I build for the tech-illiterate.

    Of course something's wrong, it's a Dell. Overpriced proprietary garbage.
    That looks like a s775 chip, why not pick up a cheap s775 board and swap over everything else?

    You still have to buy the parts! :laugh:

    I'm a bit of a suka when it comes to things like this, I can't help but help people. I've even done screen replacements and such for free. Really need to start charging people :laugh: (only charged for doing two of the pcs I've built and that was Ā£50 including 3 year support :laugh: )

    Those speakers made me hate you, please send them to me to avoid things becoming awkward between you and I :laugh:

    I don't know. The systems I use at work are all Dell's and they're pretty great.

    My thoughts exactly. And while that shot of all those drives is impressive, I can almost guarantee that the first time you have to pop the actual server unit open for a cleaning or RAM upgrade, etc., you'll notice that the motherboard is a Dell proprietary motherboard.

    :confused:

    ALL server OEMs use proprietary motherboards. That's actually part of what you get with the price premium...

    If I wanted a standard form factor I'd go assemble my own.

    Why is "proprietary" a bad word? Processors use "proprietary" sockets. If you get an Asus Maximus Extreme-z motherboard I have to buy a processor from Intel that is part of a specific lineup if I want to use it.


    And I guarantee that the first time I had to pop open the server for maintenance/upgrades, I noticed that the proprietary Dell motherboard was setup to be entirely tool-less. (Even the CPU Heatsink latches are toolless).

    Maybe you can tell me how you'd work hot-swappable power supplies with a non-proprietary motherboard?

    Blades are nice if everything uses the same few fabrics. But I need 8Gb FC, 16Gb FC, 2 generations of SAS, 1 GbE, & 10 GbE. For that, 2U works pretty darn well! :)

    I would suggest to other OEMs that we create a standardised format....
