Description

I built 13 of these for our printing department. Yes 13. They needed a magnitude of SSD space and fast processing and memory to run the RIP software they use for printing. I got very good with the cable management by the time I got to the last one. The case is a little on the cheap side regarding build quality, but the design is very good. As per usual corsair does a great job with design and cable management.

I had a really hard time purchasing 45 SSDs at once ( there's usually a purchase limit), but newegg business made it work out.

This is really cool. I originally interpreted the title as "Rest In Peace Servers" as in you killed 13 servers somehow for some reason. It makes now. Nice cable management indeed. +1

I thought the same thing as well.... lol. Was kinda curious what the old machine was that the system would replace when I clicked the link.

Great job on the build. I'm sure the boss is happy! +1

Why so many ram? Program is very demanding? I'm really curius right now. =)

Very unique, definetly +1.

Yes, RIP can be a massive RAM hog, especially if the .PDF files are of standard blueprint size. I have seen RIP implementations where each layer of a blueprint is on a separate PDF then RIP takes those layers and recompiles them into the desired "Print"...stuff is nuts

Considering he put together 13 of them, sounds like they're used as a print servers of sort.

i think RIP is a program used to convert a really big drawing file into something the printer can understand. (dint quote me on that)

Yes thats correct . The RIP software we use takes PDF's produced by the design dept. and allows the printers to print them. Each machine drives 3-4 printers.

I don't think they have enough SSDs XD

Is that an in-house print shop for an engineering firm or are y'all a printing company?

Sports Apparel, Full Dye. Printed on paper, pressed to fabric, pieces cut and sewn together.

Thanks. That's a crazy setup.

Then you find out one component isnt compatible. Hey Boss, uh..

Or when my bro had messed around with my power supply and switched the mode on it so when I turned it on it blew up and started sparking everywhere. Luckily no other parts where destroyed.

Ooh that's rough. Always wondered what happen if i flipped the switch on the power supplies, never had the nads to try it though.

For anyone wondering WTF it is that RIP means in the context of this build log page:

raster image processor (RIP)

A raster image processor (RIP) is a component used in a printing system which produces a raster image also known as a bitmap. Such a bitmap is used by a later stage of the printing system to produce the printed output.

if youre making them servers why do you have win 7, first win 7 support will be droped in 1-2 months and second why not go with win server 2012
