 The SS1000 will run with two or even none (fans).
I've done so but onbly with only one Systemboard and single .
But than you get this annoying warnings all the time...

  oh geez... when I first moved in with her she had more computers than I
  did, but sadly.... we had to get rid of a few. Neither of us could
  honestly think of what to do with a 33mhz 486 with just eisa and isa
  slots. I couldn't believe that's what she used for the longest time to
  talk with me over irc when we were in separate states. (confusion and
  insanity). There was also a labtop with a flaky power switch, and an
  inherited Pentium 200 system. 
  Honestly the understanding is I cant get anything truly big like a cray
  till we get a house, and if I get anything I need to be here to pick it
  up when the delievery people show up. Since she IS a girl and cant seem
  to pick up 100 pound packages.

    Personally I think the number and noise of the fans is overkill and

  Ill try unplugging a few and seeing if I get panics or weird errors. Ill
  see what happens :)

    Oh yeah, is she cute and does she have a sister?  It is sort obligatory

  to >ask that question on this list...
  no just a few brothers and step-brothers... if you are into that...
