    • Ever wondered what fuels the World of Warcraft? Well wonder no more, iFixit has gracefully acquired an old retired WoW Server Blade.

    • This particular server blade is an HP ProLiant BL25p that Blizzard decked out with a commemorative plate. Wow.

    • This is one of several server blades sustaining the Altercac Mountains from January 4, 2007 till July 21, 2010.

    • The commemorative plate also bears the signatures of many of the key WoW developers.

    • Before we proceed any further, we would like to apologize for any future bad WoW puns and jokes. Trust us, there will be many.

  2. WoW Server Blade Teardown: 手順 2、 1の画像 1
    • The transparent panel covering all the mechanical madness inside the server blades provides shoddy protection, but is nonetheless ornate.

    • -10% armor. +15% intellect.

  3. WoW Server Blade Teardown: 手順 3、 2の画像 1 WoW Server Blade Teardown: 手順 3、 2の画像 2
    • How much RAM does it take to create the high peaks that rise up north of the Hillsbrad Foothills? It seems the magic number is six.

    • Although there are a total of 8 RAM slots in the server blade, this model only fills six of them.

    • There are four 512 MB and two 2 GB PC-3200 DDR modules.

  4. WoW Server Blade Teardown: 手順 4、 1の画像 1
    • Memory IC Identification (only 1 is labeled of each):

    • Texas Instruments SN74SSTVF16859 13-26 bit registered buffers

    • Microchip (formerly Microchip) AT34C04 4 Kb serial EEPROM

    • Samsung K4H510438C-ZCCC 512 Mb DDR SDRAM

    • Renesas (formerly ICS) ICSLP857AKL registered buffers (likely)

    • SK Hynix DDR SDRAM

  5. WoW Server Blade Teardown: 手順 5、 2の画像 1 WoW Server Blade Teardown: 手順 5、 2の画像 2
    • This is highly reminiscent of the classic pull my finger bit—but then again who can resist such a request? Fine...pull we will.

    • We were expecting Frost Wolves, but instead we found a hard drive data cable connector.

  6. WoW Server Blade Teardown: 手順 6、 2の画像 1 WoW Server Blade Teardown: 手順 6、 2の画像 2
    • Twisting a few knobs is all that is required to remove the SCSI controller from the motherboard.

    • HP Part Number 355895-002

    • The SCSI contoller (pronounced "scuzzie"), is responsible for interfacing with a whole number of things: hard drives, scanners, tape drives, and other alliance technologies.

  7. WoW Server Blade Teardown: 手順 7、 1の画像 1
    • SCSI Inteface IC Identification:

    • HP 244651-002 processor (likely)

    • Macronix parallel NOR flash memory

    • Microchip (formerly Atmel) AT24C02AN and AT24C08AN 2 K and 8 K serial EEPROM memory

    • Analog Devices ADM3202A High Speed RS-232 2-ch. interface controller

    • Texas Instruments (formerly Unitrode) UCC5672PWP 2.7 - 5V multimode terminator

    • ON Semiconductor (formerly Fairchild) MC74LCX08 quad AND-gate

    • ON Semiconductor (formerly Fairchild) LM1597AN linear regulator

    • We had to mine deep into our pockets to acquire the proper tools for removing the power filter.

    • We were hoping that we could sell this wonderful item afterwards, but it's only worth 25 cents.

    • The DC Power filter has an input of -43 V ~ 57 V at 13 A max. That's 546 watts of maximum power!

    • Since this is just a power filter and not a transformer, the output is almost the same: -43 V ~-57 V at a maximum of 12.4 amps.

    • There's a Texas Instruments (formerly National Semiconductor) LM35CIM3 temperature sensor on-board to monitor the temps.

    • Once all the server juice has been filtered by the power filter, its gets converted to the correct voltage by the power converter.

    • The power converter is actually two identical modules stacked on top of each other, using the standoffs between them as a power relay.

    • The output of the power supply is 12 volts, 40 amps, for a whopping 480 watts.

    • As for chips, we find:

    • STMicroelectronics LM339 quad voltage comparator

    • Renesas (formerly Intersil) HIP2100 high frequency half-bridge driver

    • Texas Instruments (formerly Unitrode) UCC2808-1 low power PWM controller

    • Renesas (formerly NEC) PS2701-1 optocoupler

    • In the World of Warcraft, the Alterac Mountains are located somewhere between the Western Plaguelands and Hillsbrad, but they are stored right here on these hard drives.

    • Well, not these hard drives in particular. Blizzard probably wanted to keep all their data handy, so this server blade just comes with blanks.

    • The WoW server blade has two dedicated hard drive bays.

    • It seems "A device or blank must occupy all bays during operation."

    • How do you keep the snow from melting off the Ruins of Alterac? With eight—count 'em, eight—fans.

    • Each pair of fans draws .95 amps at 12 volts, for a total power rating of 85.2 watts. That really blows.

  11. WoW Server Blade Teardown: 手順 12、 3の画像 1 WoW Server Blade Teardown: 手順 12、 3の画像 2 WoW Server Blade Teardown: 手順 12、 3の画像 3
    • It looks like they threw everything—including the kitchen heat sink—at keeping those AMD processors cool.

    • Each dual-core AMD Opteron 275 processor provides 2.2 GHz of processing power.

    • What sort of sorcery is this? Worry not, our trusty T15 Torx screwdriver will slay any beast that stands in the way of removing the motherboard.

    • Huzzah! Have at thee ogre! We have conquered the mighty motherboard beast! Victory is ours!

  13. WoW Server Blade Teardown: 手順 14、 1の画像 1
    • The frontside of the motherboard:

    • Broadcom BCM5704CKFB Ethernet controller

    • ATI Technologies Rage XL 215R3LASB41 graphics (VGA)

    • Compaq 170095-002 server controller

    • Pulse H5007 1000BASE-T magnetic modules

    • AMD NetPHY AM79C874VC low power ethernet transceiver

  14. WoW Server Blade Teardown: 手順 15、 1の画像 1
    • IC Identification, continued:

    • Renesas (formerly ICS) ICS950402AFLF AMD system clock

    • Renesas (formerly ICS) ICS853031AY Differential/2.5 V / 3.3 V LVPECL/ECL fanout buffer

    • Microchip (formerly Atmel) AT24HC02BN and STMicroelectronics serial memory

    • Texas Instruments MAX3243C RS-232 line driver/receiver w/ ESD protection

    • Diodes Incorporated (formerly Pericom) PI5C3253QE dual 4:1 mux/demux analog switch

    • Diodes Incorporated (formerly Pericom) PI3C3125LE 4-Bit High-Bandwidth Bus Switch and Maxim Integrated MAX696EEE microprocessor supervisory circuit

    • Texas Instruments LM358 dual operational amplifier

    • The Ruins of Alterac! Or, the ruins of a server that hosted part of Alterac.

    • WoW Server Blade (HP ProLiant BL25p) Repairability Score: 10 out of 10

    • No security screws

    • Modular, easy to access components

    • HP provides online maintenance repair documentation.

    • It should be noted that these server blades are designed to be easily maintained and eventually disposed of.

    • We really appreciate HP being so mindful of the repair and maintenance aspect of their products.

didnt know that wow had server products

Cool

I have 10 of these… 5 from the U.K. and 5 from the U.S. … Picked them up during the auction 7 years ago… All still in the original shipping cartons… Interest…? I need to sell them now… I also have 30K trading cards, and lots of good loot cards… Swift Spectral tiger, and such… My toon has a Mini Tyrel from the Paris show…

Which servers do you have dstarek, like for which realms and realistically what’s the pricing per server you’re seeking?
