Ummh....I suppose if you're using a 1U server that may be true.  A 2U or larger can support full-height and possibly full-length PCI-E cards.  Case in point, the very first 3U listed under Supermicro's dual systems, the 6037R-E1R16N.  States the following support:

 

  • 3x PCI-E 3.0 x16 slots (Full-height, Full-length)
  • 1x PCI-E 3.0 x8 slot (Full-height, Half-length)

 

Even the 1U enclosures can accept a single slot full length full height card as long as there is provision for a PCI-E riser.

The full sized non OEM Tyan or SuperMicro boards that are either 2P or 4P for newer processors that do have PCI Express itself can cost more then the total price of rigs being discussed here ($1000+).

I have a 1U IBM xserver x3550 setup in my home lab network for Esxi has PCI Express risers but there 1-4U OEM servers cannot take full sized graphics cards because there is no ample power rail for them nor a cable. Those PCI express risers are designed to house low power draw (<25watt) sas raid controllers, fibre/gigabit NIC, firewall expansion cards. You can however use a LP gfx card with the riser modified to take x16 or cut your x16 card to x8. I've done so to my IBM.

Making a FT03 derivative (or any case) on SketchUp is a PITA when trying to find official measurements. Anybody know any sources for official expansion slot measurements?

 

FormFactors.org didn't give me anything on it. Only motherboard size, component placement, and I/O placement.

Current progress:

 

 

Really want to make this happen. FT03 is near perfect to my ideal low-footprint mATX case. It just needs some refinement (and it also needs to have a MBX/MurderBox edition).

 

Also, either I'm a terrible draftsman or this took an absurd amount of time. So many numbers. -_-

I found PCI-Sig which is the official website but I can't access any files for specification. The only one I found was a direct link from Wikipedia with the dimensions for low-profile cards. TT-TT

Weeded through most of the developer notes on PCI Sig's website. Got a few diagrams out. :smile:

Just randomly bought rust last night and played it for a while with some dude I haven't played with since I had a ps3. It sure is a lot easier/casual than day z. Looted two guns and actually built a small house or fort.

Everyone shoots on site but it was actually exciting killing some dude that had a way better gun and kevlar than me.

It's also really easy to run I get like 80 fps most the time.

I finally met up with my friend on DayZ earlier today.

Bad Company 2 is seriously so fun even though I suck at it compared to bf3.  The M1 Garand is so much fun same with the knifing system.

I finally built my PC (w/ help from my dad). It was really fun to build. I was surprised it even started up! Seeing the BIOS on my TV was awesome. All I need now is Windows 8 and a monitor. Pics coming soon

The prices on that list are a little high, if you could hold out for a little while and be on the look out for some deals you could save a good amount of money. Just for example I got my 4770k for about $220 before tax because Microcenter had them on sale for $250 (I live in Las Vegas where there is no Microcenter) I called Staples and they matched it and they happened to have a $30 off $100 coupon out at the time which they also let me use (they just sent me a $20 off coupon today and do so often). I just got a Noctua D14 for $45 from NCIX last month which Im pretty sure is ranked highly for air coolers.

New Egg has te Non k 4771 likw $19 dollars cheaper, sill 47771 just sounds cooler xD
