A few days after the first shipment I received this package in the mailbox:

I think it would have got in easy. They didn't try hard enough. 


Our Grace. The Feathered One. He shows us the way. His bob is majestic and shows us the path. Follow unto his guidance and His example. He knows the one true path. Our Saviour. Our Grace. Our Father Birb has taught us with His humble heart and gentle wing the way of the bob. Let us show Him our reverence and follow in His example. The True Path of the Feathered One. ~ Dimboble-dubabob III

Unboxing thSupermicro SuperServer 6027TR-DTRF.

 

After opening the box with the small parts I continued with the Supermicro SuperServer 6027TR-DTRF:

It came in a lovely double box.

The 2 brown boxes on the side contained accessories such as the power cables and screws.

The 4 boxes in the middle contain the heat-sinks.

After removing the small boxes the server was revealed with the rack rails on the side.

 

 

 

Here are some shots of the Supermicro SuperServer 6027TR-DTRF:

Great harware! Can't wait for more updates. Did you ever consider buying used servers (except for the harddrives) to save money?

I used to always buy used servers.

For example my old ESX server was a DL160G6.

 

However before building this server I ran into some money and I always wanted to build a massive array with nice Supermicro gear hence the expensive new stuff.

Can your next tutorial be "How to run into some money". 

Unless it's a bank robbery tutorial.... In which case, maybe make a youtube video instead of just a write-up.

I love all technology. The perfection of macs for my designer side, and the hardware and fun of tinkering on the of the pc side. We can have it all, just not at the same time.
