I'm bored so I think I'll post things on the internet
So yeah in the...4/5 years my server has been living in it's current incarnation I have more or less neglected to clean it...like at all...so today's project was "clean Mr. Server" This has been a project for the last week or two and I FINALLY got around to it.
I was smart enough to take some before pics...and wow it was bad
Oh almost forgot, my server lives on a bookshelf
That's an overview of it all. That PSU has been around since the second generation of the server (#4 as of now) it's a 500w Dynex bought at Best Buy with a friend's employee discount in 2005. People (including people here @ OCC) have laughed at me for that one but here it is 8 years later yet my 5.5yr old Silverstone OP650 is dead as brick.
That's my 6950 2GB unlocked to a 6970 folding away, it's only been in there for a month or two though so it wasn't too bad. Sadly I'm taking it out to save power around here. To the left of it is an old PNY 2 port RAID card that has run my 320GB RAID 1 array for as long as it's been in the server. It's a crap card and I don't need it with the current motherboard so it will be coming out too.
That's 2GB of old Kingston value ram, more than enough for this server's usage but I've got the ram from one of my old main rigs so it's being replaced too. (Actually that's where most of the server's parts come from old main rigs)
Now that you are prob wanting to hit me over the head with a big stick for letting it get that dirty (Yes I've seen worse but this is MINE lol)
Ohh pretty. That Dynex 500w got pulled out and it hurt me to take it out of 24/7 usage but it lacks SATA ports AND it wasn't even 80 Plus when new, the Antec BP550 is and it's even partly modular
That's a 9400GT with 1GB of video memory..because it can really use that much...and a USB 3.0 card from one of my main rigs that doesn't need it anymore.
This is a temporary HDD setup with metal plates holding them together and spaced but knowing me a year from now it'll still look like this.
Yeah the Power supply hides this nest of cables so I didn't worry about it and left it like this.
4GB of Mushkin Redline that was a replacement form Mushkin when the 2GB kit I won here @ OCC went dead on me.
And a quick screenshot of the basic info back in Windows.
Well there it is. Thoughs? Opinions? Questions?
