One more update in the pipeline
« Reply #15 on: October 12, 2004, 07:04:06 pm »
Thursday 10/14/2004 at 3:30am PDT (-0700), I will be taking the server down for maybe 20-30 minutes to replace the heatsink and fan.  The one in there isn't really all that well suited to being in a 2U case, and has caused some problems as of late, so it's time to swap it out with something more suited to the role, and a bit shorter.

And for the curious, here's what the server looks like: http://trolans.net/gallery/general/DSC00341

HS/Fan update all completed, no problems.  Used a bit of the time I gave myself to let it cool down... darn thing was toasty.  As it is, after it's been in there a bit, I'm seeing about 30F cooler temps from the CPU monitor.  I'm happy.

http://trolans.net/moblog.php?id=21 for the pic of the guts w/the old sink.  New one is about 1/2" shorter and doesn't ride right below the case lid.

The server will be down from about 3-5am PDT 8/16/08.

I'm doing what is effectively a clean install of FreeBSD 7.0 on new mirrored 1TB drives.  I've built it on another box I have, and will be copying over user data only to the new drives and then installing those.  Makes for a good excuse to clear out the old crud.  The existing 300GB mirrors have been in continuous service for more than 3 years, so it's time to swap 'em out.

Power supply death this morning.  Took a bit to find a replacement, and wound up jury-rigging a standard power supply into the 2U case.  It ain't pretty, but it'll work.

All should be good from here on.
