This build went really well. Everything installed nicely and only ran into one problem on the way. When installing the chipset drivers on this Asus board it said that they do not work with server 2003. What you have to do is go to the folder and manually install them. Don’t use the autorun that is on the disc.
The case fit everything I needed with the 3 hard-drive slot still open in the hard-drive rack. The two 130cfm Silverstone fans I added keep everything nice and cool. I had the total package up and running in about 2 hours. If you’re looking to build a powerful and roomy server this is a nice case to use.
