This was my main file server PC based on a Compaq Proliant 1600 server chassis.
Now retired / scrapped as of 6th June 2012 RIP )o: (Rust In Peace)
New Server is a Proliant DL385 Generation 5 with 8 CPU cores and SAS drives.
Here are the old Photos of the Proliant 1600.
This server had 2 x Intel Pentium III 600MHz CPU's each with 512Kb Cache.
1024 Mb (1 Gb) RAM
5 x 145Gb Seagate Barracuda Ultra 320 10K RPM (80 pin) SCSI drives set up on a Compaq S.M.A.R.T 2-DH RAID array controller, this makes it ideal for a music / video server as files are accessed and then streamed over local network to local client PC very very quick.
1 x DVD R/RW Dual Layer and 1 x 52 - 32 - 16 CD-R/RW drives, for when I want to burn a CD for the car or even my home movies to DVD.
Matrox 32Mb PCI video graphics card, old card I know but server had no AGP slot and the onboard Cirrus Logic (16 colour600 x 800) is crap, so it was a much welcomed addition to the server.
I added a USB 2.0 PCI card as it did not have any USB ports at all.
Netelligent 10/100TX PCI Embedded UTP/AUI Controller and Compaq PCI NC3120 Fast Ethernet NIC interfaces very very quick at shifting data over a network.
Now sit down for this, it had a Creative Labs AWE 64 Gold ISA sound card, but it sounds excellent though my amp and it was a expensive card back in the day when people wanted one with DOLBY Digital coaxial output for gaming. 1994-1996.
Also had a Compaq management screen fitted in the front (not may do as this was an optional extra) to alert you of any alarms / faults.
Was Running Microsoft Windows XP Professional, and Office XP Professional.
Was home to my home cinema files and music that can be accessed from local PC's I have attached to my LG 50 inch Plasma TV and Sony CRT projector for media streaming.
Other accessories that were used on this server are:
Samsung SyncMaster 940N 19" TFT monitor, silver & black.
Compaq black and silver keyboard.
Microsoft USB optical mouse.
Oki 8c LED colour network printer - also now scrapped.
Home network is 20 meg ADSL (over copper) using Netgear D845GD Sky wireless router / modem with 4 ethernet ports.
