Rebuilding Delilah, Phase One

As mentioned in the Opening Message, Walnut Hill has fallen behind on website administration and other vital projects as a result of extensive damage to the main data server during shipment from California to Tennessee. The old case is seen above, showing the broken screw mounts for the front bezal which was removed for this shot.

Ye aulde Dymamax server case.

My aging Windows Server 2003 SP2 Enterprise Edition machine outgrew its old but trusty super tower case on wheels. I looked at over 200 cases to find this one for use as a system rebuild. I knew of the Newegg store for years. Knowing Thermaltake's reputation first hand, I read hundreds of reviews on the Armor, visited the Tt site, downloaded all docs and mulled it over for a week. On 2/27/09, I ordered the big tower. It arrived three business days later.

Having used many great Tt products before, I put my trust in this case based on looks, functionality, size, and price. It was the clear winner, and I knew it would make a great server box. The Armor replaces a Dynamax server tower of about the same internal volumetric size. The old Dyno was great, but when I moved to Tennessee from SoCal, FedEx handled her like a gang of rabid gho-rillas and destroyed the server's Dyno home. The new case has all the right parts in all the right places. It has room to grow. I will be putting a lot of gear inside and there will still be room for more stuff!

I can see from all I have learned so far that the OEM tool free PCI retention device will be taken out in favour of screws. I would have preferred casters to swing out feet. A machine like this draws a lot of dirt inside. Being heavy and not on wheels, it is difficult to move. The solution is to put teflon pads on the swing out feet or swap the feet for casters. They are easily removed. An alternative would be a custom built dolly to place the case upon.

I would have preferred the front panel ports to be on the front rather than beneath a plastic lid on the top. Some have said that this lid will not stay open. The solution is to add a sheet steel spring under the hinge arms to keep it open. My main gripe is the PSU space will not house a dual redundant server PSU cage like the one in my old Dyno tower. Thus, I had to buy a new PSU. For that, the PC Power and Cooling 750 Quad Blue should do nicely. It fits perfectly in the space provided and allows the extra hard drive cage to remain in place since the PSU vents out the back and not the bottom.

The Armor arrived at MOJO Ranch via UPS truck freight three days after ordering it online. The sturdy shipping box was longer than it was tall, being large in all three dimensions and printed with lots of info and pictures pertaining to its contents. The unit was packaged well and arrived without a scratch nor blemish. Even the shipping box faired well. After reading the manual and unpacking all the parts bags, I had a thorough understanding of the case.

The Armor is a sight to behold, indeed. Engineering and construction are first rate. Style is top drawer. The swing out aluminium front bezal wings protect things that protrude beyond the drive bay covers like the knobs on the Live! drive. They also act as heat radiators to bleed the heat from the front frame where the hard drive fans are and they serve as compressors for these two 120mm intake fans. The hidden magnets hold them firmly closed but they still easily open wide to clear the burner drawers. The accessory storage drawer bay is nice and can be relocated to any bay in the tower. I chose to place it in the topmost bay. The power switch and FDD module can be placed in any bay. This was placed near the middle of the drive bay stack. All the various parts of this chassis are easily dissasembled, serviced and reassembled. Nice.

The new and the old towers.

The Armor is not overly tall at only twenty inches, but it is much deeper than the average chassis at just over twnety-three inches with the wings closed. This is why it makes a great server, with the drive bays well clear of the motherboard area. However, you would be hard pressed to put this beast in a piece of prefab furniture. It is just too long. Also, since the 250mm fan draws inward from the side, there is not much clearance left to right in same said deskage. This monster needs to stand out in the open and be seen.

Although the case is roomy, it abounds of the typical razor edges found in well milled but not edge finished steel. The coating on the metalwork is beautiful but one needs to handle her like the classy lady she is as not to ding the paint job of spatter matte black.

This "server turned gamer" case has that ever popular plexiglass side. It is stylish but held in place by plasic rivets. Though it is well made with a beaded trim detail around the edges of the three large metal panel cutouts, it is still a tad fragile. There are no damper washers anywhere on the case fan bolts. The large window allows total visablility of the system which is illuminated by the blue LEDs on the case fans. The tool free devices are great for test assembly. Final build will be done with screws.

The Armor is full of epic win where style and functionality are concerned. The box is deep and wide. It is designed well and easy to work in with enough space to house even the most demanding commercial workstation setup as well as being a great candidate for a small industrial data server installation. Being 1mm SECC steel, it is also quite heavy. By mounting the accessory drawer in the top bay, you gain a handle to pick the thing up by in front, grabbing the lip of the PCI bracket area in back as you lift. Do this with your legs, not your back. I found that attaching a fabric cargo strap around the case makes it much easier to move.

I would recommend this case to anyone who wants a good looking well cooled rig such as a front office server or recording workstation. This "house" has great "curb appeal" with its high tech looks, definately making folks say "Wow!" when they see it. Thermaltake does not disapoint. And Newegg delivered ahead of time. The whole purchase process was painless. Good job, folks.

The Armor was carefully placed on four fiberboard coasters, service side up with the service side shroud removed, on the dining room table. Studs were set on the mobo tray and the mobo was fitted. The stock I/O panel was removed and replaced with the stock OEM mobo unit. All seven ground points were bolted down with stainless steel screws. Screws were added to the drive bay devices to shore them up and make the case more rigid while solidifying the chassis grounds to these devices. Each device only requires two screws per side, including the two Antec 900 drive cages, but as many fasteners as will fit shall be torqued in during the final build. The stock Tt front drive bay cage was removed to be installed in the machine I built for Erika, giving the three drives inside some much needed cooling with a 120mm blue LED fan. The Antec drive cages have blue LED illuminated 120mm 3-speed fans with switches set to Low.

After the mobo was installed, I removed the PCI retention device. When all cards were socketed, this bracket was reinstalled. When the tabs were flipped down, all the cards were snug. This bracket is a novel concept but it makes removing the cards rather difficult due to minimal clearence between the tabs and the card to backplane brackets. Panel wires were easy to hide behind the mobo and snake through slots near the drive bays. All that remains to be done is install the two burners and PSU, along with a special 27-way flash card/floppy drive. I like the fact that one can quickly install drives or bolt them down.

Case on table, service side up.

During the early stages of the build, I encountered some dangerously sharp edges, common for a steel case. I was careful but still suffered some minor dings on my digits as I was removing the bay covers. The tool-free bay locks do not hold the drives in place tightly enough since they only make contact on one side of the bays. There are no attachment points on the other side if these are used alone. One can leave the mechanisms in place and add screws, which makes things extremely solid. The tool-free drive devices are like helping hands during the test build.

After installing six HDDs, the DVD burners, and all other drive bay items, the unit weighs about 55 pounds. Later when the mobo, PSU and all other items remaining are installed, I expect the contraption to scale to over 70 pounds! But then, it IS a super tower server.

The front (top) panel USB/Firewire/Audio jack plate lid will not stay open. It needs to have a mild sheet steel spring mounted underneath the hinge arms to keep it open when the lock is released after pushing down on the front edge of the lid. This jack plate really should have been on the front of the tower rather than on the top. However the unit would be taller as a result. I will use it only rarely, so this is not an issue.

Though not a con, realize that this tower is deep from front to back, needing a minimum of twenty-three inches for the case, at least six inches of wall clearence to the back plane, and another three inches for the front drive bay wings to swing out, for a total of thirty-two inches. I recommend a full three feet from the wall to the front edge of the furniture and at leat a foot or more of side to side space for case ventilation.

Because the Thermalteke Armor case has great front to back depth and a relatively low height, there is perfect airflow, as everything inside has space to breath. Since the case is longer than it is tall, the weight is distributed low and the case sits stable on the floor. It is too heavy to place on a standard computer desk table top. Installing gear is easy and everything fits together nicely. One must choose a PSU that fits the relatively confined space at the top of the chassis. A 3.5-inch hard drive cage sits where most modern PSUs have their 120mm exhaust fan located. Because of this design, a PSU that vented out the back plane using an 80mm fan was needed. Only one company makes such a beast, PC Power and Cooling. We chose their Silencer 750 Quad Blue 750-watt ATX PSU, which fits as if taylor made for the case and has power to spare.

The case finish is a heavy industrial style black spatter matte paint, not the typical glossy piano black surface that adorns most pimped out boxes. The four big stabalizer feet are sturdy and lock into their various positions. With these feet rotated to 90 degrees, the case is impossible to tip over. This is good if you have toddlers who like to pull up on things. There are small rubber pads on the feet to keep them from marring the floor.

The side window is big enough to see everything inside. It is well reinforced with metal separators and the support structure of that enormous 250mm service side fan adds a tank-like rigidity to the service side panel. There are enough nooks and crannies in the chassis to make hiding wires easy while still being a cinch to clean. The service side panel locks in place and does not need thumbscrews, which went to the tray side panel instead.

The test build is now complete. All that remains is raising the money for the PSU and DVD burners along with any other small items like adapters, gaskets, thumbscrews, etc. Total cost of the rebuilding is extimated to be around five hundred dollars. We decided to break up that cost in two shipments. The case shipped in March at around 250 bucks and the remainder will be spent on the other items to be shipped in April. Stay tuned for Part Two of this story in the next issue of the Gazette as we continue the construction of this corporate workhorse and bring her online...

Second Relocation Fund Drive

The Second Relocation Fund Drive is much more ambitious than the first since the distance is greater and there is the matter of shipping equipment and belongings overseas to Ĺkersberga, Sweden. The conputers along with a collection of optical media, mics, recorders, cameras and a reference speaker system are worth thousands. The systems can be switched to 240VAC@50Hz via toggles on the power supplies, so adapters will be all that are needed to get them plugged into the local power grid.

We are going to have to raise a lot of money to pull this off, there is no doubt. Airfare alone for a one-way ticket bought in advance will be between $1,000 to $1,700. Passports and Permits will cost around $200. Shipping equipment could be incredibly expensive, perhaps over $2,000, bringing the total cost of the move to a conservatively estimated minumum of $4,000. If a return to the US to await permanent residency is needed, the cost could be even higher.


How To Make A Donation

As before, the original Pay Pal account which Doc and Tom Hoehn created is still active. Here, you can make your donation to help us relocate Walnut Hill Productions to Sweden.

These most kind and generous folks have earned memberships in the Walnut Hill Organ Club and will be notified of their membership status when the club goes official after the move to Sweden. We have decided to push forward with the organization while awaiting an ATOS charter. We will post our progress in the Gazette during the fledgeling phase of this project which must still undergo much planning.

This is yet another major move forward for Walnut Hill Productions, one of the fastest growing and most visited TPO sites on the internet. We are trying to keep the Walnut Hill Productions website a free place for all who love the Mighty King of Instruments. We are also trying to keep it vibrant and ever changing. We do this to preserve a very important slice of history, but we need your help to keep it going. This move will allow Walnut Hill Productions to continue making major strides forward for the King of Instruments, doing the same thing for the organs of Europe that was done for those in the United States. We are thanking you in advance. The best is yet to come!



Save The Mighty WurliTzer and Grande Barton
Theatre Pipe Organs At Ceder Rapids, Iowa

CEDAR RAPIDS - Cedar Rapids' two original theatre organs, rare treasures that were damaged by the flood, are being stored at The History Center, 615 First Ave. SE, while their caretakers determine whether they can be restored.

The two organs are among about 40 in the country that remain in the theatres they were built for. They were once used to accompany and provide sound effects for silent movies.

3/12 Mighty WurliTzer Balaban 1A console.

The Paramount Theatre's 3/12 Mighty WurliTzer Balaban 1A was installed when the Paramount opened in 1928. The Mighty WurliTzer organ was removed from the Paramount Theatre on June 18. The Grande Barton organ was removed from the Iowa Theatre on Tuesday. That removal was sponsored by a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities. What happens next for the Mighty WurliTzer depends on what happens with the Paramount. The city of Cedar Rapids owns the theatre and the organ.

3/14 Grande Barton console.

The Iowa Theatre's 3/14 Grande Barton console was damaged by the floodwaters, but the impact to the organ was not as visible and dramatic as the Paramount's Mighty WurliTzer. The Barton console, hit with 4 feet of floodwater, remained standing on the 4-post Barton lift unlike it’s sister at the Paramount which was toppled over and tossed around, subjected to 8.5 feet of water and weakened significantly by the experience.

The 3/14 Grande Barton organ is owned by Cedar Rapids Barton Inc., a non-profit group formed exclusively for the maintenance and preservation of the organ. That organization and the Cedar Rapids Theatre Organ Society have set up an organ restoration fund. Gifts are tax deductible, and donations can be submitted by visiting www.cr-atos.com.
