Well I decided it was time to finally make the switch and complete my workstation to replace my dual core current rig. No half measures, quad core CPUs. Yep two. I'm using a Tyan dual s771 motherboard. Full specs: Tyan S5380 motherboard Intel Xeon E5320s 2GB Samsung FB-DIMM ECC RAM Silversone 650W PSU Intel KHD2HSRP350 Server case Forgive the surroundings. The new addition to the family has the run of the house and she likes to chew things. So I'm relegated to the confines of the conservatory and garage for this mod. In my haste to get started I didn't take any progress shots of the beginning. But I took the front door, control panel and side panel off. Removing the CPU heatsinks. They're Akasa AK-385s, 2U copper base, aluminium fins. Not that it matters because they're being replaced by something different, which I'm just reminded, is being used to keep the kitten away from the back of my current PC! Here's what they were cooling. Intel Xeon E5320 Clovertown CPUs. These happen to be engineering samples, but I have no idea who sharpied the 'clover 1.8' on there. Time to clean it up a bit. I'll finish cleaning the CPUs and sockets when I 'mod' it (more on this later). The overall layout of the motherboard (Yes the PCI-E x4 slot is in the middle of the motherboard). I need to fab up a better way of securing the PSU than two screws and a few zip ties. Motherboard out PSU out The top and bottom panels are just held on by one screw each. Covering the standoffs with blue painters tape. I did spray the front door and frame, but I'm out of spray paint already. 1 can doesn't go very far. I'm using Plastikote Metal Protekt matt black because the local B&Q doesn't stock regular matt black wtf?! No pictures of the spraying process so far, but I'll get some when I pick up more paint tomorrow.
