I have an old computer collecting dust. I built it back around 2000. It is a nice big tower Inwin IW q500 ATX case. Inwin no longer has the specs on their site. I did find this description with pictures though: http://www.pcstats.com/articleview.cfm?articleID=570
Some specs I found:
Max Mainboard Size ATX Supported Motherboards ATX Internal Bays Qty 5 Front Accessible Bays Qty 6 Color beige ManufacturerIn Win Development EXPANSION / CONNECTIVITY Expansion Slots 7 (total) / 7 (free) x expansion slot, 7 (total) / 7 (free) x expansion slot POWER Power Device none DIMENSIONS & WEIGHT Width 7.9 in Depth 17 in Height 23.6 in Weight 27.8 lbs
This was the last computer I built, so I'm relearning the building game. I am building a new linux server and I was wondering if this is something I can still use? I realize I'll need a new power supply, but are there things that have changed since then that will render this not usable? It has a place for two fans on the back (one towards the top, one half way down) and one at the front towards the bottom. Will that do enough cooling?
Thanks for any help
