I wanted to get this out really quickly. More pictures to follow. At this point in time, the server has been relocated to my wife’s office in an effort to keep the overall rack cool. I’d been reviewing and reviewing and reviewing this rack for 6+ months. I needed to know it was gonna fit all my needs, and cover future expansions. This was a Christmas gift from my wife. Unfortunately, I didn’t have any unbox photos, but it came in five separate boxes. She really felt she was doing her part here, but I didn’t have the heart to tell her this was only the beginning. Here’s the initial setup. At this point, I’ve already destroyed the packaging box and started assembling. In this photo, I managed to get the cage together; trust me when I say, the instructions were not very helpful at all. This was an almost 100% eye-ball project.
It can be seen here that I’m trying to figure out the best way to align my gear. I lost count at this attempt to line up my gear, never happy. :/
Below is the final photo. I got some really good deals on a few servers, and it was beginning to breathe life. What is it? What’s running on it? Stuffz! Maybe one day I’ll give the breakdown.
