the primer is to keep the steel case from rusting any further, and the rubberized undercoat is a pore mans sound dampening of sorts.

added some copper RF shields and fix the miss aligned hard drive mounting holes in the upper bracket.

in my absent mindedness, I didn't get a picture of the caps after they were hot-glued in place to keep them from sorting out traces on the motherboard... "O" well.

put a ground strap on the CPU heatsink...

fix the wire mess.


things to be done...
get some fans in the front of the case, along with more hard drive racks.
get some cooling ducts going for the motherboard.
get some cool lights behind the front grill.

Future upgrades....
transplant the mobo/proc over to DSN-Vserv1, and implant another dual core in the file server.
