| I'm putting together a dual 1.4ghz sk370 setup and no dollar will be spared! It must be perfect!!!
This is a work in progress. I will update this thread when I get more parts! I have not chosen all the parts I'll be useing so no system specs yet.
Day 1 Test fit motherboard, nic cd drives and vga.
What I learned: I need a longer audio cable for the cd drive.
I will need a single slot cooler or single slot video card if I want to have a voodoo2 sli setup with a nic and scsi card. I'll probably ditch the nic or go single slot in the vga.
What I'm waiting on:
Hdds, CPUs, scsi card, ram, heatsinks, caps for mobo and dust filters.
ETA on next parts delivery.
The motherboard will be recapped. The caps on it are mostly ok. Some I don't trust, for about 15-20$ I might as well recap it.
I will use a scis raid setup in the system.
I will need to track down some high end video cards to test in the system.
Day 2 plans!
Fit 92mm cooling fan in hdd bay. [installed]
Install 5 hdds. (36gb quantum atlas) [4 of 5 installed]
Install ram into mobo. (2gb sdr cl2 pc133) [installed]
Plan wireing layout. [done]
What I done so far.
Test fitted mobo, vga and sound card.
Put new TIM on the x850xt cleaned it and checked its fan.
What I learned on day 2
