I ordered the parts for this server already taking advantage of Newegg Holiday Deals.

Mobo: http://www.newegg.co...82E16813157419R
Ram: http://www.newegg.co...N82E16820231610
Case: http://www.newegg.co...N82E16811152222
HDD: http://www.newegg.co...N82E16822145969

Just want any thoughts on it.  Possible improvements are welcome though I am out of cash to do much right now.

Don't see anything explicitly wrong with it, though I do seem to recall that servers, like any computer, require a CPU. I could of course be incorrect on this.

Ahh yes the Mobo has one installed already. It's a SoC (System on a Chip).  Intel Avoton C2550.

Topkek. I got my parts today and the case makes me want to kill myself. (And take out the guys at supermicro as well.)
1. The HDD spaces are right up against the fan, can't even plug in a sata power plug.
2. No space under HDD for cooling air.
3. Mobo spacers too night / ram won't fit into case
4. Back faceplate too short for Mobo.

Bottom line: Going to be thrown in scrap because return shipping is more than buying a new one that works.
