Things look quiet here. But I've been doing a lot of blogging at
dan.langille.org because I prefer WordPress now.
Not all my posts there are FreeBSD related.
I am in the midst of migrating The FreeBSD Diary over to WordPress
(and you can read about that here).
Once the migration is completed, I'll move the FreeBSD posts into the
new FreeBSD Diary website.
Dual Opteron - motherboard 8 July 2006
The entire motherboard. More than one person has commented that the fins for the CPU heatsinks should be rotated
90 degrees. This would allow the fans shown at the top of the screen to blow air through them. I initially agreed. Now I think
they are oriented the correct way. The CPU fans will get the air away from the heat sink, and the other fans will remove it from
the case. If the fins were parallel to the airflow, the air from the bank of 4 fans may tend to interfere with the airflow out of
the CPU heatsinks. I'm guessing.
You can see the two PCI slots and four PCI-X slots. And two banks of four slots for RAM. At present, there are four 2GB sticks of RAM.
