xw6400 Workstation Motherboard

HP Recommended
xw6400 Workstation
Microsoft Windows 10 in S Mode

Hi,

 

I don't know if anyone out there knows, but can someone tell me the form factor of the motherboard? or is it a custom one as I'm looking for a replacement case to make it more presentable as a home server sitting in the living room.

 

My Guess is that it's a Standard ATX form factor, but I've not had much experience with the hardware still.

 

Thanks in advance,

the xw6400 is a "semi" custom board/case/power supply

 

while it can be modded into another case, due to its age/performance i don't recommend doing so better to replace the system

 

board is mostly a AT compatible in regards to mounting hole location, but a custom mounting bracket for the cpu(s) needs to be made

 

power supply pinout is not atx compatible, as one line needs to be changed/rerouted on the 24 pin connector

 

custom cooling needs to be created for the FB Dimms on the motherboard

 

the audio/USB connections are not standard and the bios will post a press F1 msg on each boot up unless you keep the stock i/o panel cable/bracket

 

all of the above can be overcome, i've personally modded a 6400 board to a ATX case some years ago but would not do so today as there are much better alternatives
