Default Re: Paxville or Bust! The Supermicro X6DA8 Project

Testing before assembly....and its a good thing I did. GPU interferes with the FET heatsink....

Trimmed. I had a slip with the angle grinder and took off a little more than intended....but it seems to be of no harm. After some load testing afterward, the FET's aren't overly hot. The GPU fan seems to pull air over the shaved sink.

Up & running.... Next step is to put it together.
