This week we have taken the Acer Altos 600 rackmount server that we restored a few months back and reshelled it into an Antec ATX case.

The acers case was absolutely solid and weighed as much as a small car...


if you caught up on part 1 you will remember just how dirty this machine was










The machine received the usual HwH treatment, a bath, and a full clean up so it looked as good as new! (as well as an upgrade to Dual CPU and maxed out with 1.5GB of ram!)






The machine was running sweet as a nut however due to the weight of the case and the size of the thing it was too much effort to get the thing out and use, so this got us thinking, could we fit it in a nice ATX case, and after all how many motherboards feature Dual S370, an AGP slot, support for upto 1.5GB of ram, onboard SCSI???! so the task was set and the case was sourced...







Check out the channel to see how we got on....

hehe yeah it was pretty bad, many years of loyal service i would assume!

Agreed the antec case is lovely, its in pretty good condition too just needs a little clean up and some sticker rediue removed.

the 9000pro is a little weak would love to try and get my hands on a 9700pro for it!

It's not risked to cut the I/O shield when it's hung on the motherboard ? I mean that there may be some small metal shards which can be projected on the board and cause some short-circuits or even damage seriously the motherboard. That's just my opinion, good video anyway ;)

Welcome to the forum! Valid point, and while i agree there is a small risk, the board was inspected before being powered up and found to be fine, they are well protected, laminated PCB's take a fair heat without damage, I would imagine much more than a metal shaving will be at. But valid point none the less! :)
