New Workstation - Build Start

It all looks so easy...

    looks like a real beast. The slow link in the chain IMO are the relatively small HD drives and the TYAN motherboard. I think ASUS Muthas do the job much better.

    Good Luck!

    Thanks for the comment.
    Unfortunately, the drives are as big as the WD Raptors come at the moment.
    Most material should be coming off of the main server anyhow, so I'm hoping these (this is one of two) will get by with 300Gb.

    Interesting input about Asus vs. Tyan. I've built a few systems on Asus boards before, and can't complain too much (a couple were DOA)... Mainly, I had heard good things about this board (specifically in relation to Quad-core Xeon support), and wanted to "try something new". My fingers will be crossed for a bit.

    Note: CMStacker 832 does not come with standoffs for Xeon processors.

    It's a bummer, as otherwise, I'm REALLY impressed with the design and quality of this case.

    Dual CPU setup. That use to be my prefered choice but the price holds me back.
    My last dual setup was a dual slot one and a dual socket A setup.
