The Boards Have Arrived

After a lot of tinkering and figuring things out with the Windows Home Server, I’m planning on building a new server and performing a data and hardware transplant. Two boards have arrived:

The Asus board will be used for the server and it will be the work horse to make sure that it takes care of everything. Suprisingly I’m running the current WHS on a weak motherboard but its handling it, but its reaching its limit and I have almost filled up 11 TB worth of data with duplication. Expansion is at hand but with the right planning, in regards to the Skulltrail I am going to build a 64 bit Vista machine to handle all the tasks, and I’m planning on upgrading my KVM to a dual dvi output KVM and at last one has been made by Linkskey.

I would want to build the machines now but I have to wait on the rest of the parts which are slowly trickling in. I bought one case online against my better judgement because of the shipping cost and the other one will be from Kuwait, so I have to see what is available.
