and, another package at home when I got there!
First off is the heatsink that will be cooling this I decided that I didn't want anything too obnoxiously large but still quiet and as I was running xeon chip there would be no overclocking so I wouldn't need much cooling headroom, I was going to get a Noctua NH-D9L because it looked awesome until I realized that the u9s was almost the same size and achieved much better temperatures.
On a side note I love opening new Noctua products they just look so great.






A couple of fans ANNNNND a DIMASTECH FlexFan that I ordered because it should work perfectly to cool the LSI controller that I have been told that can run pretty hot in low fan speed environments and thats what im building. Also the new mounting hardware!!VERY stoked about that stuff, they ended up looking perfect and they should, after all I paid 8$ for the mounting hardware for each fan, LOLz.. But every fan in my case will be mounted using this hardware.






Man I love MNPCtech feet I dont think I will ever do a build without them.


I just liked this shot


By the way pictures are going to be mostly decent/okay as I shoot all of my photos with cellphone..

Subbed! Looking forward to watching this.

Re my 'no name' build ... I will name it tonight sometime ... after I get through with thinking up a suitable name.

Edit: Qs already ... how does the flex fan work? Where are the HDD data ports on that motherboard (I can only see 2)?

They come in 92mm or 120mm and are just a metal flexy "stick" with threaded bottom. Not sure where but I'm gonna drill and mount it somewhere so it can easily point at the bottom heatsink.


That board has 14 Sata ports :)
You use a SAS fanout cable that turns the big sas plugs into 4 Sata plugs.

While waiting for more funds, I decided to start working out the table that is going to hold this thing. Its going to be pretty heavy with all those drives and I knew I wanted a shelf below for the UPS so I figured 3/4" Plywood would work well with 2"x2" legs.

This is what I have so far, the "case" and the "UPS" are to scale and looks like this will work perfect and hold the second UPS im planning on getting for my desktop underneath.



Just confirmed with my friends at www.moonlightmods.com that we will be using laser cutter for cutting the sound foam and CNC router for cutting the table to hold the server, I'm pretty excited about getting to see this.

Parts are slowly getting here so here is some more!

The two 140mm Noctua fans arrived today.





The PSU arrived from seasonic! Gotta love that platinum rating, also they replaced the small bag that held the extra cables with a far more sensible box. I was not the only one that thought that the big nylon bag was a bit wasteful. Everything is flawless like always with SeaSonic and cant wait to get some custom cables for this guy and get it powered up!
