Case/enclosure of some sort needed for this a Supermicro server motherboard. This system that I sold locally:
http://www.techpowerup.com/forums/threads/sold-locally.212420/

Has come back to me. Funny thing. Rather than update the processors to dual hex cores, which I have one and the other will be on its way from @t_ski , he has decided to purchase updated hardware. What is frigging awesome, is that he is having me update the hardware purchase, build the system, configure the system, and for that he is just giving me all the hardware in my old for sale thread back.........Pretty dang good trade I think. With the dual X5650 hex cores it should make a pretty damn good cruncher!

Anyhow, I am needing some kind of test bench, server case, or something that will allow me to mount the motherboard.

Here is the manufacture link to the motherboard:
http://www.supermicro.com/products/motherboard/QPI/5500/X8DTU-F.cfm

Any help, ideas, or links to something that would work would be appreciated.

This looks like it is big enough, maybe a couple HDD trays need to move but, maybe not! Board is 13.9 inches along the longest run and this case is 19.4 inches deep. Unless the HDD cages are 6 inches wide, they all can stay!!

Mounting holes? Well, might have to do a little modification, for those but, You can charge him in beer for your extra sweat!

Looks like most cases that will support the wider EATX boards will work for you.

I have this test bench and it will handle anything including HPTX.

It's pricey and you have to put it together yourself but it's ideal for a test bench. They also have other models that are smaller and less expensive.

If you want to buy a case for that board and want to be 100% sure that it will fit without any problem i suggest you a Haf 922 it will fit perfectly without remove anything.

I actually have an ole HAF 932 still in the original box. I will probably attempt to use that first. :rockout:

Thanks everyone for the suggestions.

Okay, I am going to be putting together a business plan to submit to my bank for a turn key running business.

I actually have the preferred template, all of my information, and the financials of this business.

My dang time is sooooooo limited that I am having a real issue finding the time to get this business plan wrote up in a reasonable time frame.

If any member has experience in writing business plans I would be very interested in hiring him or her to perform this task.

As I posted, I would "hire" a person so there would be pay involved.


Please PM me if you have the experience and are looking for a small job for some extra pay.

If I receive PM's we can then discuss the pay rate of course.


Thanks in advance,
Stinger


Okay everyone, I posted this over at the General Nonsense forum seen here: http://www.generalnonsense.net/showthread.php?t=16529

I just don't have the time to accomplish this task in a reasonable time frame. I don't want to go into details in the forums as I feel that would be more appropriate to give in PM's.

If anyone here is interested I would sure like to discuss all the details regarding this plan. I need to have this completed and submitted by the middle of September at the latest. If I don't have any response here or the General Nonsense forums I'll probably need to go to the local college to see if it is possible for a student to accomplish.

And of course spelling is extremely important with this task.

I don't think you're going to find any college students that have much experience writing business plans. I'm sure there are some that have had some interest in starting a business but I'm not sure that qualifies as "experience."

I'd recommend putting a posting on Guru or one of the other online sites where people post odd jobs.

edit: I haven't looked at guru in a long time but iirc, you should be able to browse other jobs similar to what you're looking to do. That should give you some idea of what's involved and what sorts of rates people are asking.

edit2: try this link (to a search on 'business plan') - http://www.guru.com/d/freelancers/q/business-plan/

Anyone have any leads on a low-priced dual-2011 board? I'd prefer an ATX board if possible, and need to stay away from anything proprietary.

I got an open box ATX X10DAL from Newegg for a little under $300. I think they normally go for something closer to 4 bills.

I have a pair of Xeon E5620's that I bought off of ebay as a part of a supermicro chasis. Not sure if anyone's running a board that can use this, it's an LGA 2011 socket(not sure if it requires ECC ram). Free to a good home. Lemme know. I have had them in a chasis for 4 months now as an ESXi host, no issues. Use at your own peril.

Why not hang on to them for now and offer them in the next challenge/giveaway we do. I don't think anything is planned at the moment but I'm sure we'll do something by October or November.

What about the mounts on aftermarket Coolers... like the 212's and such?

The T3500 I have is S1366. I bought a new heatsink for it that was heatpipe based, and the old one is sitting on my parts table. I measured it, and the holes are 80mm apart on center. Use that to figure out what you need.

However, I can see the picture on the link you posted has holes around the socket, instead of the backplate and threaded holes that are typical for S1366.

So, basically, there are heatsinks out there, that will fit whatever Dell did to the holes. So, I should get it, measure it and then research coolers that are out there. Correct? I will find something other than Dell crap to fit it?

If so, I will be purchasing this next Thursday. That is if @bpgt64 still is willing to part with them 5620's and toss them my way...?

The Dell heatsinks I have use female threads on the mounting side. The Dell case has male threads that stick up through the hole. It is possible that you could rig something up by making your own backplate and using screws on it to grab the threads in the holes on the heatsink.

That being said, I just remembered that I have my Heatkiller 3.0 waterblock that is S1366/S2011. I measured the holes and they, too are 80mm apart on center. Maybe you can use something stock, as long as it has a backplate that can be used on a S1366 board.

I could mock up my own backplate with a chuck of wood, right? :laugh: Go down to the Hardware store and pick up some one inch Screws and Nuts and do it up!! What's the catch? 16 threads churning out numbers, right? :toast:

While I'm there I will pick up some wood screws and some scrap plywood, some 1"x1" and make my own open top box for it...Maybe make a stand under it for the PSU and Drives....Sounds fun!!:roll:

My 3960x is down. does anyone have a 2011 cpu they can spare? or an x series they would sell to replace it? HALP!!

On a side note on the machine in question (seraphim) I had implemented a trusted platform module and bitlocker. Does anybody have experience canging parts on a system with tpm?
