My System Specs

Exclamation Stacker 832 Revisted

Doing my first build in this case in a couple of years. Decided to upgrade and watercool my server.

This is what the build was like last time I used it.



I didn't like the powdercoated glossy interior. And since I was cheap I decided to remedy it myself. Brought out my favourite 'paint' in the world, Plasti-Dip. I also finally decided to mount the radiator properly. In the past I just used 3M tape to hold it under the case.

Also have the Koolance 770ml reservoir mounted. Don't mind the stains in the first pic of it. Oxiclean and a toothbrush were able to get most of them out. I also bought back my old GTX460. Cleaned the block out, then decided to give it a nice black touch before I put it back together.

I've been waiting on my RMA from Asus. I guess I waited too long to do the P67 upgrade to the B3 stepping. They don't offer advanced RMA anymore. So I really can't do much until the board comes back to me.

As for hardware it will be using a 2600k and a P8P67 Pro that I stole for my main rig while I wait to upgrade to SB-E. The rig will be used for folding@home, which is why I am using the 2600k.

For storage I'll be using my two Sans Digital TR8M-B external drive enclosures and a RocketRAID 2314. Performance sucks but not something I am interested in for mass storage. I have five 3TB drives so far for main storage and eight 2TB drives for backup. I will have three bays open for storage later on. And since I am going to be using the Drive Bender software, I can easily expand later on.

Thanks for the input. Would you be running this in your family room as a HTPC as well? Or just a server in another room?

It will sit in the corner of my bedroom. It will be used as my 24/7 until I get an SB-E rig operational. After that it will just be a server. I live alone so I just use my regular PC as my HTPC.
