By Request: a Look Inside the Intel D945GSEJT Server
I received a request today to snap a picture of the D945GSEJT board mounted inside the mini-ITX case, so here it is:
In the picture above, I have marked some of the connectors (and left some out, e.g. the USB ports):
12VDC power connector
On-board power connector for hard drives
The lower third of the machine as shown in the picture is occupied by the mini-ITX PSU, which I do not use. Because of the design of the case, with the hard drives attached to the lid of the case (the lid is flipped on its side in the picture), there is no room for a PCI card. It would be possible to have a PCI card though, if the machine only needs one hard drive. In that case, the PCI card would be attached to a PCI riser attached to the PCI slot on the board.
