I’m not one to give up in the face of a technical challenge and besides I’d just forked out a hundred notes on the board so the rest of this article will go through all the steps in detail that you would have to do in order to get one of these beasts up and running yourself.
Cytoplasmic inclusions of fused in sarcoma (FUS) are the hallmark of several forms of FTLD and ALS patients with mutations in the gene.The Z800 board comes in three different revisions, indicated by the AS# number printed on the white sticker located directly below the big black chipset heatsink. As you can see from the image this board is an 002 revision.The executive summary to what I’m about to explain is that if you have revision 001 or 002 then you can officially use only Xeon X55xx CPUs.We ran Redhat Enterprise Linux on them and they were, and still are, extremely fast linux servers that could operate as physical boxes in our production environment or virtuals in development. And it was very expensive, much too expensive to justify forking out for one. You can now pick up a brand new replacement motherboard for an HP Z800 on ebay for £100. Excitement quickly turned into a daunting realisation that I may have bitten off more than I could chew. It will not fit into any ‘normal’ PC case, not even an EATX tower case. There’s a separate power connector for the memory banks with a proprietary connector. Clearly this is a server motherboard adapted only slightly to fit into HP’s proprietary case with HP’s proprietary power supply and cooling system.The mounting screws will not mate with any of the ATX holes in a motherboard tray. Buyers of the Z800 certainly received their money’s worth compared to an anonymous box filled with generic parts.
