this is one of the things i am planning; it would solve a load of 'issues'
(be it fan noise, or driver conflicts). it would require re-wiring the sat
cables, and also a more powerful server (im thinking an upcoming virtualbox
install that can handle PCI(e) passthru).

i dont forsee any issues at all with this setup, so if you are planning
having separate BE and FE, then TBS would be ideal :)

best of all, the 6981 comes with both a full and low height PC bracket, so
your unrestricted in terms of case you can use.
