well first of all. the system is built into a standard rackmount case.

slim line CD rom/DVDRW/etc..
a zippy 3 module redundent power supply so 2 running the system, 1 ready to switch in if either goes down(hopping both don't go down at the same time :P
usualy fitted with a supermicro or tyan board.. really loving tyan ATM. although they released a board that had a caddy fitted to it, that you connect loads of sticks of ram to, because it took like 12 per a caddy(a caddy per a CPU socket) there wasn't enough room on the M/B so they built this caddy, that you fit the ram into, then it slides into a slot that looks like the same connection as a PCI X.. a VERY VERY unstable motherboard, allot of hardware errors due to the bottle neck in forcing 24GB of rams data through this PCI X connector(it was the connector used for PCI express, not actully PCI Express! don't get them mixed up..)
it was a nice system. these 5U cases, and the 1U cases are my fav!!
and yeh. this was pretty heavy aswell! but will fit into a standard rack. as long as its screwed down and not some mobile one!
