    I've got an opportunity to buy a Dell 1600SC server case cheap. Could I fit
    a Thunder i7505 mobo in the case with the port access in the correct
    positions? Being a dual server case, its got to be either an OEM or Intel
    board. Of course, Dell wouldn't give me that sort of info.

  2. Not without a great deal of modification and a lot of rewiring - and
    probably a new power supply (or power supplies).

    Thanks Edward,

    I was thinking that Dell must be using someone's else's mobo.

    I meant to mention it comes with a power supply fitted, so it's the ATX
    board I'm concerned about.

  5. The PowerEdge systems from the last few years use very much custom Dell
    boards built by Solectron and Celestica for the most part - I have not seen
    inside a 1600SC, but those Dells I use daily (PE 2500, 2550, 2600, 2650,
    etc.) would not take standard boards at all - the components inside are not
    standard ATX.

    Cheers Edward. I'll steer clear.
