    LOLZR reacted to L04D3R in Do any cases exist comparable to caselab's sma8?   
    I still have my old CaseLabs SMA8 Magnum A revision that i used for a build awhile. Since im sad about them shutting down. I started disassembeling it  today and me and my friend are gonna make blueprints for the parts so you can create you own cases might still take a couple of weeks but i'll post the instructions after it is finished.

    @Zando Bob's build looks great.  It is also a good example of what I was meaning when I said make sure that you can put your pump/res combo where I had it in the diagram, looks like a pretty tight fit.  I also agree, you don't need the monoblock for any reason other than looks - he made good points as to why.
     
    If you have actual questions, shoot away. But I will not look up every specific part you need on aliexpress or eBay and send you links. I think that's a bit beyond the scope of "helping someone out", I think that is introducing them with a feeding tube because they're too lazy to chew.

    Gonna pop in quick and say don't get the EK monoblock. Incredibly expensive, only thing it does over a CPU block is cool the VRMs, but they're already overkill on the CH6/CH7 so they don't overheat anyways. You can't push Ryzen very hard without LN2 and wack voltage anyways so you won't be doing any extreme overclocking (they tend to hit a hard wall around 4.2-4.25 for 2000 series, 4-4.1 for 1000). Get a Heatkiller IV CPU block, they're a nicer fit and finish than the EK monoblock as well (I run a Heatkiller IV Pro Acetal on my 5820K now, back when I had a 2700X on a CH7 I had the EK block, was meh). Also much, much cheaper than that monoblock. 

    Since this is your first time, why not go soft tubing instead of hardline? You can get EK-ZMT tubing for super cheap, it doesn't leak and it's easy to work with, looks clean too. I run mine with the cheapest EK stubbies I could find, slapped zip ties on and have had 0 leaks in any of the 3 rigs I've built like this. 
     
    @LOLZR's reccomended routing looks great and will work with hard or soft tubing. Does need a way to drain the loop though, that's a thing people forget a lot and it makes for nasty time trying to do maintenance. 

    Here's my rig with soft tubing: 


    I made a couple mistakes with how I set up the drain plug (need to flip the front rad and redo some lines), and also fed my res out into the top of the res, that introduces a ton of microbubbles and just looks eh (does work though), when I get a few more fittings I need to reroute that to the front input on the pump. Other than that, it looks pretty clean and the tubing/fittings were much cheaper than going hardline. I think this is still $500-700 or so of watercooling hardware though, so even softline isn't cheap, just cheaper. Hardline tubing needs much more expensive fittings, more tools, and the tubing itself is more expensive. It does look reeeeally damn good if you do it right though.

    Don't know why I did this, as you're not really helping us help you - but it seems that you just want someone to design the loop for you so you can assemble it.  I can make no promises that this will work (is your graphics card too long to put the pump/res where I have it for example) but here is a basic design in your case.  Please note that you will need a fill/drain somewhere (you can possibly fill in the top of your reservoir depending which one you get).
     
    If you have an actual question, feel free to ask.

    Have this same one, can recommend. Kinda expensive but super durable and keep things really hot, and if you put a drink in with ice it almost gets too cold to drink.

    @Brass_01 Yep, it surprised me too when I first started out. A loop of any quality is quite expensive, and most of it comes from China where this type of thing is huge so depending where you are in the world shipping can be costly/timely as well.

    The most difficult problem you'll have is the drive controller driver. Newer operating systems won't have it.

    i think the last supported os you can try is windows server 2008 however im not actually seeing many people running anything newer than server 2003 on it.

    Quite literally any other computer would be faster than this server though. Even the cheapest intel atom netbook should be able to outrun two netburst xeons

    MX Linux has 32bit version and is based on Debian.
    FreeNAS has only 64bit and so does unraid to my knowledge. 32bit systems are getting so rare that many have dropped support for them, as 64bit systems have been around over a decade.

    I see what you mean by 64-bit not being an option:

    Technically you can get 12GB in there but I don't know how well modern OS's will handle DDR SDRAM. Really it's probably time to retire this old beast. I wouldn't try using anything older than a system that supports DDR2 for the applications you want it to do. I think your server here would choke even if you got everything loaded in it.

    Theres plenty of older distros that have 32-bit builds, such as Xubuntu & Ubuntu Mate 18.04.
    Also the likes of Windows Server 2008/7 that are fairly well bedded out. 
    Just keep in mind that they will for the most part be out of support. 
     
    Honestly I wouldn't be using anything older than a Gen6 for reliability of backups
    I wouldn't hold out hope that it could run Plex....maybe 2 CPU's could... (assuming Plex runs on 32-bit)
     
     
    I'm kinda confused as well about the G3 having a max of 12GB of memory when it was a 32-bit platform, and the addressable memory space for 32-bit is 4GB
     
    Edit: P.S Also a server that old would be the old SCSI Ultra320 connection...so you're severely limited to small, expensive, used drives if you need to expand or replace a drive...not to mention the heat and noise they make.

    There is something thats called Physical Address Extension (PAE). Very simply stated: It will allow via more page tables to see more then the 4GB.
    Tho thats only on the datacenter version of server 2008. I tried to get it working on a normal 2008 and no dice

    Windows 2003 32 bit will run perfectly fine on that system. With PAE, it supports more than 4 GB of memory.

    @Brass_01 That is for x370/x470 version of the board, I have no way of knowing that it will for sure work with the x570 (depending which one you have).
     
    12mm or 16mm are the more common sizes in my opinion, but 14mm is becoming more common all the time.
     
    This is an example of a 90o fitting on eBay for 12mm. This is a straight fitting on eBay for 12mm. Both Barrow, just because they are my personal preference out of the brands that I have used.

    if thats not it then, i'm sorry that this won't be much help but for background info, FreeNas is based off freebsd.
    I found an article from 2013 strongly suggesting that freebsd had significant issues running on the dl380 g3

    The G3 still has PS/2 ports, try a PS/2 keyboard or get an adapter to use a USB keyboard over PS/2.
     
    I'd just install a 32-bit Linux server (like Ubuntu server) and put SAMBA on it, though. Easy enough.
