    I've got a Huanan X99 F8D in the Torrent - EATX and covering all of the holes on the front to 100%. Here you can see how i've routed my cables. ATX and dual 8pin 12V are on the top of the board.

    Need help with wiping/set up of a HP DL360 Gen 9 server

    You're right - but then you're fixed of running VMs and you can't access all the Hardware at once (what you might want to do if you'll use that server as a kind of a workstation). Depends ... everything has pros and cons ...

    You could just run Windows 2019 / 22 Server with Hypervisor Role installed and play around with VMs 🤷‍♂️👍

    That was just a joke - I really love to see all the dually rigs 🥰 I'm doing a lot of VM stuff, so Cores ARE important for me.

    Oh man, I love those 'look how big my dick is' things. :D But only 64 gigs of Ram? You could update that! :) I also love my dually Workstation. Next update will be dual Xeon Platinum 8280 as soon as they are affordable (so in 2 years or so...) (Bench was taken with 4 VMs running - so maybe...

    Fractal Torrent

    According to the review, the compact has much smaller space on the backside for cabling. The nano however seems to have more space. Strange.

    Here you've got a review of the Compact and Nano ... I know it's in german but maybe it's helpful. https://www.hardwareluxx.de/index.php/artikel/hardware/gehaeuse/58022-fractal-design-torrent-compact-und-torrent-nano-im-test-der-airflow-zwergenaufstand.html

    Hm... Seems that those coolers are not easily available here in Germany 🙄😔 However, I've found some adequate replacement - from an old GeForce MX Card. Works like a charm and it's not noisy anymore (at least not that fan 😂)

    Since somehow there is no one interested in the board i got from another forum a few month ago, and it has only been lying around since the construction of my Dual Xeon E5-2680v4 workstation, I thought I would build a sleeper. Hyper-V and stuff like that can be run on it, at least temporarily...

    Something special: The HP Netserver LX Pro Quad Pentium Pro

    I don't Really know the exact Setup - but both were connected simultaneously to the network and had the same specs. I could image some sort of fail over cluster... Maybe with some special controlling software.

    Something special: The HP Netserver LX Pro Quad Pentium Pro

    It was one of the backbone servers of the "Belwue" high-school network in Germany . His name is Hugo (yeah, no joke! Also had a sister named Lisa). Cost of that thing with current spec is around 200k - plus the two RS/8s. Yeah, that WAS a BEAST. THE beast.

    Something special: The HP Netserver LX Pro Quad Pentium Pro

    Hi all, as promised here, I want to show you what was Ultra-High-End back in the days of 1997 (25 years ago!). It all started with a server from my high school, equipped with 2 166MHz CPUs and 256MB Ram. Over the years, i got 4 1MB 200 MHz Pentium Pros (aka 'Blackies'), the corresponding CPU...

    Venturi : I've got the rgb super slow and only cycling blue and green and the colors in between... Don't like a disco style light under my desk 😂 The aerocool mirage are good coolers, of course not the best, but sufficient. And quite silent until 1500rpm.

    Super nice rigs - and super expensive, too! I can't afford that, but for me my Dual Xeon workstation ( dual E5 2680v4, 128 gb ram, GTX970) is sufficient. Today I tried to render the PovRay Wiki Glass image in 1920x1080... Took ages!

    RGB does (in my opinion) not mean that the case has to be lit up like a rainbow. I like the colors, but have it quite decent and the color change is set up super slow. Normally i only have blue and green. However, it seems that some games like Halo Infinite takes over the control - i've got...

    I had a cpu temp drop of a couple of degrees after installing an exhaust fan ... But that might be to my special dual cpu setup... However I do not think you need it. The amount of air from the two 180mm fans is incredible, already at 300rpm.
