Default Re: Paxville or Bust! The Supermicro X6DA8 Project

I chipped away at this one a little this morning before getting myself into construction-mode....

Removed all heatsinks and hotwashed the motherboard, it was filthy.



3.6GHz Irwindales that came with the board and 12gb RAM from my parts bin.



More junk....


Case stripped. The AFT lower motherboard side section of the 5.25" drive cage interferes with the back of the board & heatsinks....


Fixed!




3.5" Cage reinstalled. Clears everything.


The rest of the case cleaned up. I removed the "property of dent county" sticker goo. The county clerk actually removed the sticker (with a serial number on it), so they can clear it from their records. There was also a XP COA, I removed that and de-goop'd the case....then hotwashed everything.







I'll resume this again when I have a little extra time.
