Duct Tape Server (I)

Duct Tape Server was built entirely from four rolls of gray Nashua duct tape, a quarter roll of translucent 3M duct tape, and these computer components:

  • Pentium P4 2.4 GHz
  • Intel SFF Motherboard
  • 1GB twinned DDR RAM
  • 350W PSU
  • 2 80mm LED fans

Duct Tape Server was on server row at MillionManLan 6, June 21-24th 2007. It hosted a Ventrilo server and a 15 person Armagetron Tournament. Performance was flawless over the four days of continuous operation. Core temperatures hovered around 32 degrees C!
