Custom Server - Chenbro 4U Server/Dual Xeon 3.0 GHz

Some customers have a vision into what the most beautiful should look like.  They select the options on our website and we start to build it.  We then realize just how awesome a computer some of these systems really are.  This system was chosen and configured by an actual customer and we are displaying it here for your viewing pleasure.

What a beast of a system server this is.  This is not your normal everyday storage and data server.  What tips this off is the addition of a dual-screen graphics adapter, a discrete Sound Blaster 7.1 card, and the addition of consumer grade SATA drives.  This looks to be like some sort of audio video networked device.  Whatever its use is going to be, this sure is one awesome config.

To start off, it has got some serious processing power behind it with two 3.0 GHz Xeon processors from Intel.  Then its hard drives are then put into an easy access drive enclosure.  While only three drives fit, the fourth one is located inside the case.  It also has a DVD write drive which again makes for an odd server system setup.

Lets see the specs here.  I am sure this system must be capable of something amazing.
