I have an ancient IBM PC Server 704 in my basement, currently doing a tour of duty as an extension of my workbench. Hoping to breathe new life into this beast, I am gutting it and maybe putting some more modern hardware in it. Reason being is it has a good SCSI backplane and I have tons of drives for it. My question is on these back planes, do I need to retain the original SCSI card? Because I bet a newer one would work better, but I don't know if the backplane is proprietary to the card that was in the machine. I know that smaller form factors are available, but this is one of those "to see if I can" things. Like when I built a PC into a G3 case and other such nonsense.
One of the best French door fridges we've tested
A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
