Rebuilt the Unreal Server today
New Case
NT4 Server Service Pack 6
iis services
450 P111 W/coolermaster fan
256 megs ram
CMD IDE Controller
system drives mirrored on three drives twice on server once across the network
application drives 24 gigs IDE Raid 0
DLink DFE 500 tx nic
Cirrus Logic Laguna
SoundBlaster 16
Optimizer run for maximum tweaking of the connection routed through the New Link Sys router
Cables Braided and bundled
Serving HTTP, FTP, UT and MP3's:)

Nothin fancy but cleaned up for air flow, still have to filter and insulate for noise

That's pretty cool how you braided the cables. Looks nice.

This is the soundproofing I used, lighter then Dynamat and easier to use.

How is it running?

Clean work...Love the braiding..

Martiangod......that braiding is way too cool! Nice job. You shouldn't have a problem with air flow. :)

After reading Roundey's thread I set up DNS on the box also, Boy, that speeds things up. A great addition to the other services running on the box, should have done that years ago:)

And the 450 with RAID 0 works great, just a piar of 5400 RPM 15 gigs, I LIKE :)

Martiangod, I'm glad it helped you. Having DNS local and a cable connection my web pages open up insanely fast. :D I just noticed you are useing NT. I don't really have as much experience in NT as I do Win2K, but if you need any more help let me know. A couple of the guys I work with are MCSE's in NT. I'm only a MCP in Win2K so far. That will change soon. :)

Ahh yes, the pride of having your own home built server.

I have 3 of my own

1 web server
1 Game server
