Re: Correct choise of servers

True true but the chief.(uhh) has 2 HD "racks" for 4 disk, if you use one rack 
for 2 disk it should be ok if you place a fan behind it ( they made a socket 
for a fan behind the rack ). The only thing to think about is what direction. 
Blow or suck, if you suck are into your case it could be fatal if the PSU fan 
sucks too. ... but that easy to find out with smoke or a lighter :>
