Yes it does...
Right now I am sitting in my office at work less than 5 feet from a server I
built by attaching two full tower cases together and removing right side
from one case and left from the other (also pulling out the mobo mount).
Anyways I currently have 20 250GB WD SATA drives in it and although I have
two independent power supplies APC tells me that the whole system (Opteron
248 processor + 4GB of REG ECC) draws about 350W (under full cpu load and
minor disk activity) including everything but the monitor . I can say one
thing though with 20 drives the darn thing ways a ton.
