Rack Mount my Gen8

Hi All,

 

I've been thinking for quite a long time about transplanting the components inside of my Gen8 server into a rack mountable case.

 

I'm wondering if anyone else has considered/tried this and if you have any tips?

 

Thanks,

Jon

As snapper said, it is doable. It would be a lot of work though as the Microserver Gen8 components aren't standard at all. The motherboard, the I/O connector backplate, the mounting holes, the heatsink and the fan are all unusual in some fashion. Once you add in the cost of a rackmounted enclosure and then the time needed to modify everything then you're looking at a fairly expensive project.
