    It would be an 8-10 hour round trip, not exactly nearby. The only way I'd consider it is if people had a definitive interest and a cash pool to buy it, plus expenses (gas, food, shipping, etc.)

Though this thing ran with 3x 10k drives and a Wildcat Graphics card for years (well until the PSU died, then till the next PSU died, high wattage 5V PSUs are hard to find). On the Antec cs600 I have this case that must be a model up from that, never could find out what it is though:

    That's a Tyan i860 motherboard with a huge memory board. Side note: This motherboard does not use ATX/EPS12V pinout, you WILL break something if you try it without an adapter cable.
    Internally that looks a lot like the Antec CS600. I would need to see the front. My 12" x 13" Intel SSI EEB mobo wouldn't fit, not w/o surgery. Which is remarkable, given it was a full tower, filer server, soho case.

    My Corsaid VS650 came today. Wish me luck. Imagine if I got both units working this week (the Xeon and the Asus netbook). I'll screech! Asus remarkably is doing their best to help me thus far I'll point out.

    Hasn't Intel, obviously, and Supermicro cornered the market on the Xeon stuff? I've seen Tyans and Asus mobos around, I'm just a little apprehensive about those brands. Of course if mine works I won't have to go shopping for something else.
