    Well, my question to you is, what home server would require that much raw cpu power?  ;) 
     At least in the normal situation that i would think of for a home server (File sharing, printer sharing, TV/Movie recording if a tv turner is connected), even my core i7 920 at stock is overkill for that kind of purpose.  
    Typically, if your running this much cpu power under the hood for personal usage, chances are, you have a very specific task in mind. Typically includes:
    Rendering (or could be apart of a render farm)
    Web server (might be overkill if your not running a popular web page.)
    Game server
    Those are about the only things I could see that someone would need cpu power.

    I had a H100i the first time I put in the FX heat monster... Standard clocks its coped at idle but would turn into a wind tunnel as soon as you do anything that puts a bit of load on the system... And no hope of an OC...
    So I did this

    Episode II: Obi-Wan

    The Starwars Saga is arguably the best sci-fi action drama to ever be seen on the big screen. To pay tribute to this epic story of adventure, discovery, love, darkness and triumph, i have chosen to make my first of many gaming builds with the Starwars theme titled "Obi-Wan". Obi-Wan is my first Intel and SFF build ever. The idea came from my first gaming rig tited "Vader" which utilized an AMD FX4100 on a Gigabyte 990FXA-UD3 motherboard with an XFX 6870DD inside an all black modded HAF 912 with red 200mm CM fans. Vader was meant to grow into a power hungry monster only to fall short in the end. With Obi-Wan, i threw out the budget and pretty much bought what was needed within reason.
    Specs are as follows:
    CPU: Intel 3570K @4.2 Ghz
    Motherboard: MSI Z77IA-E53 Mini ITX
    Memory: Corsair Vengeance 2x4 GB White Low Profile 1600Mhz 1.3v
    PSU: Silverstone ST55F-G 550W, Silverstone PP05 short cable kit
    GPU: MSI GTX680 PE OC "Lightning"
    CPU Cooler: Corsair H60 2013 edition AIO w/ Corsair SP120 High Performance fans x2
    Storage: Seagate Momentus XT 750GB Hybrid Drive
    Case: Fractal Design Node 304
    Misc: Black, Yellow and Blue paracord for sleeving, Lamptron PSU connector tools, various splitters and connectors for fans
    I remembered in one of Linus' videos talking about the "big 3" hardware manufacturers and decided to go with MSI because of the color sceme and the fact that no one really uses the MSI mini ITX board. Im one of those people who will buy something that isnt exactly popular, prove it works just as well as the rest and hope others will take a chance on it too. Now ill be honest, the Bitfenix Prodigy is a nice looking case and maybe the next revision will make its way to my door step with a later build, but its just too big. Seeing as how this isnt a major water cooled PC, I couldnt see myself wasting all that space. The Node 304 is perfect with its simplistic design. The deletion of the front optical bay was pretty much the main reason why i ended up buying it. The CM Elite 120 was another option but the PSU mounting was just in the wrong place! Dont get me wrong, its a slick looking case and you cant go wrong with CM especially at its price point. The front mounted PSU in the Node was a huge plus and the Silverstone Strider 140mm PSU was a perfect choice for it. I mean, its fully modular, 80+ Gold and the perfect size for this case or any case for that matter.
    So, on to the build portion:


    I only needed the one HDD mount seeing as how im only using one HDD. If i felt like it, i could instal another HDD or SSD with no problem

    Board with Memory, CPU and H60 back plate installed



    Board installed, plenty of room

    PSU installed


    GREAT thermal paste

    H60 Installed, only a single fan at the moment. I wanted to test a single and then both fans

    This is to show the clearance between the bottom of the H60 and top of the I/O

    Maybe a little tight but doesnt look like it will be a problem

    Stock cables just to show how long they are

    Getting ready for sleeving (PP05 kit)

    Super strong and very easy to use. Great investment


    Used these colors before I made the GTX680 purchase. I was debating the 670 vs 680 and decided with the 680. Dont worry, the colors will change ;)

    That would be the 6870 that will be featured in the Vader build log that i will be doing after this one

    So this is the MSI GTX 680






    GPU Reactor PCB




    This is why i changed the colors. Blue and yellow match perfectly and the subtle, single wire contrast from the black makes them stand out perfectly


    Isnt complete without shots of the Blue LEDs right?





    So thats it for the Obi-Wan build. I know that there are a TON of pics and i hope everyones internet connection can handle it.
    I have to give a big shout out to the Linus Tech Tips crew for creating this forum and allowing us members to display our pride and joy. I have an earlier build log of this very build on a different site but was met with ridiculously rude behavior not only from forum members but also from the mods and admins. I was so excited for this forum and am very thankful for it. So thanks again for making this happen and thanks to all the forum members who are viewing this build as im sure you will have lots of wonderful things to say!
    Oh and one more thing.........

    I have not connected any front panel connections other then the power button as i never use them and would rather have the minimal amount of cables being shown inside the case

    During the build there was water leaking out around the pump, turns out that I forgot to put the o-ring back that sits between the pump and reservoir. no damage was done but it was definitely a scary moment.

    Total build time of the system took the entire day from 9AM to 3AM the next morning with 2 other people helping me along the way.
