New Hardware Purchased

Well, temporarily giving up on the iSCSI drives being an economical option, I decided to go ahead and build a standard run-of-the-mill server... Here's the specs of what we ordered:

Asus L1N64-SLI WS
2x AMD FX-70
Thermaltake VA8004BWS
Thermaltake HardCano 13
2x Kingston KVR667D2E5K2/2G
Thermaltake 850Watt W0131
going to use an existing space nVidia 6600GT
2x Hitachi Deskstar T7K500 250GB Serial ATA II (mirrored boot)
5x Hitachi Deskstar T7K500 250GB Serial ATA II (raidz2 data)
2x Addonics AE5RCS35NSA
NEC Black Floppy (memtest86, hitachi drive tool, etc etc)
going to use an existing dual layer burner
Belkin 1500VA/1000 joules UPS

We're also upgrading the KVM:
Belkin F1DE208C
3x Belkin F1D9400-06 (for machines on the rack)
1x Belkin F1D9400-25 (for docking station on the desk)

Still need to grab a Cat6 cable from PCHCables when we get a chance to run out to Hillsboro.

Plan is to run OpenSolaris as Xen dom0, then host all Xen domU via locally shared ZFS NFS directory...

  1. That Thermaltake HardCano 13 is the hardest item to actually get.

    First, I order it from who says they have it in stock. A couple days later, they send me an email saying that they cancelled my order because the item was out of stock.

    So I order it from 10 days later, I check their website and it says In Progress. I email them, and got no response. I finally got ahold of them on the phone today, and they said that they had emailed me (which they didn't) because they had two which were already paid for by another customer and that it is discontinued and so they have to cancel my order.
