  1. Ok, so first off don't panic, I haven't actually got 3 working servers just yet, the other 2 are spare parts which I could turn into working machines for a fairly small investment. (why are VRMs more expensive than processors?!) Oh, and disclaimer, while I'm a bit brainy an a swift learner, I don't know a whole lot about networking and Linux has so far confused me with its sudo nonsense! So, speak clearly in concepts I can research rather than technical jargon if you want me to not cry. As the title says, I want to be able to turn 3 servers into 1 machine. If that isn't going to happen then stop reading here and call me an idiot for buying 100kg of stuff for no reason! Primary plan is utilise the 16 drive bays in 1 server for NAS, and allocate cores to VMs I can access through otherwise utterly useless tablet devices that can just about run a browser and cost somewhere approaching zero. These get dished out amongst different rooms to provide more chunky processing capabilities without having to have an actual computer in each room, or having to buy expensive tablets. Ye know, like starship Enterprise has one central computer doing all the shazam. Looking forward to Threadripper/Epyc getting cheap as anything in a few years' time! If the servers can be chained, obviously I'd end up with then 48 bays for drives which I'm sure RAIDz would be able to find a use for when it's bored. Secondary plan is to get the other 2 systems up and running and meld them all into one badass machine which can be used as and when I feel like it to do much more demanding tasks. Say video editing or encoding or other such nonsense. Yes, I'll probably have to slap some graphics capability in them but 680s seem to end up in the trash these days anyway. Tertiary plan is to spend left over crunching power doing something bit-coin shaped (if it's even worth doing any more) or even perhaps as a remote powerhouse that I can flog processing time on/donate to nuclear physics laboratories. Or, slightly more sensibly, give me the ability to continue composing/producing music over the internet because I'm not spending £3k on a laptop which is actually up to task. If I can't access my network (and thus VMs) from the internet then what the bloody hell is the point in the internet anyway?! Machines are (drum roll) ProLiant ML370 G5s. 1. 2x X5355s with 44GB(DDR2) and many many HDDs 2. 1x X5459 with 16GB(DDR2) and zero HDDs 3. A mother board. And a case that weighs about 40kg. 4. £200 Now, assuming what I want to do is at all feasible.... Questions! 1. Will I need to use the same processor in each machine? One assumes that paired processors are required in a 2 slot board (yes noob, I know, it's savage guess work!) and so would that mean I would thus need all the processors to be the same? 2. Will unraid or FreeNAS fit the bill? I'm quietly confident that some form of Ubuntu will manage the task but that would mean I need to know things and stuff, and that's not currently the case. 3. Can you convince Linus et al to do a video on it? Seriously, if you search youtube for 'daisy chain server' it's pretty much a googlewhack picking up nothing but noise and some woman getting series and parallel electrical circuits a bit wrong. He'd get a million hits anyway, the stuff costs sod all and it'll help usher in the future of houses which actually come with a computer installed in them. I bet even Bill Gates'd watch it! 4. Using unraid/FreeNAS, can the VMs actually access the NAS?! I know it seems like a stupid question, but honestly when I think about it the VMs would need to talk to the NAS as a network location, right? Would that make things get all confused? 6 (sod 5 that's boring). If there are many ways to daisy chain and it's not a myth, what's the best way? I can imagine a PCIe card that just connects the systems together on a primal level, but if it can only be achieved by Ethernet cable is 1Gbit/s actually swift enough? G. Is there a resource (video channel or some such) which speaks Linux/Ununtu but also translates into people? Level 1 Tech is great and they do seem to be the most likely, but can't find anything which'd give me an idea of what is and isn't possible. 8. If Ethernet is the way forth... Is It better to hook the machines to a network switch using 2x Gbit/s inputs, rather than one into another into another and then 2 feeds to a main router from first and last machine? 9. Can I add extra machines willy nilly? 'cause if I'm picking up more servers for dirt cheap and decide 24 cores is getting dull and boring and I've discovered some way to actually make money out of it, then I might want to waste even more time making a properly mental super computer which could one day take over the world! Yeah ok, it's unlikely, but a megalomaniac can dream! 10. The servers have iLO. Integrated Lights Out. What's that then? It seems to be a remote console thingy jobby but it doesn't work in Win10 and I have no idea what I'm doing with WinServer '08! Anyway, thank you very much for reading this internal monologue of mine and I do hope that at the very least my enthusiasm has brightened your day! Jon ps if it posts multiple times it's because my service provider I having trouble finding their own stable connects, let alone mine!
  2. LTT Storage Rankings Topic Welcome to the LTT Storage Rankings! The purpose of this topic is to show off cool storage builds, to inspire with what you show and be inspired by what you see. And of course, also talk about those builds, ask their owners questions and all that good stuff. Criteria System capacity of 10 TB or more 5 storage drives or more: We don't count OS drives, we also do not count cache drives, nor external USB drives. External SAS enclosures connected via SFF-8088 count, however. Drobos, Thunderbolt enclosures etc.: If they have a management interface which makes them somewhat autonomous, they count. It does not matter whether your storage drives is an SSD or an HDD, as long as it is used for storage. Don't forget to indicate vendor and drive size for all your drives for our statistics (see also below). For cases not covered here, we reserve the right to adjust the rules as needed to protect the spirit of the thread. It has to be a single system (everything running off of a single motherboard). Do not post your company server (except the ones from Linus Media Group ;)), this is for private systems. Pictures of the hardware required. That's the primary point of this thread, after all. Use looney's post as a template. Write a nice post about your system, give us some details on the nitty gritty inner workings of your beast. Make sure to give all the needed info for the statistics (Operating system, storage system, HDD vendors and sizes etc.) Ranking System The rankings are based on ranking points, which are calculated as follows: ranking_points = system_capacity ⨯ ln(system_drive_count) with ln(system_drive_count) being the natural logarithm of the number of drives in the system. Rationales Minimum Requirements Having both the 10 TB and the 5 drive minimum rules allows us to prevent being spammed by systems with a single or two huge HDDs (10 terabyte HDDs are a reality now, after all), while still allowing systems which were put together with smaller drives (or SSDs) to get into the list. Ranking Points Basically, this thread is about awesome storage systems, and we think that capacity isn't the only thing which determines how cool a storage machine is. Chances are that a system with a bit less capacity but quite a few more drives might be more interesting to look at. Therefore, the number of drives also counts. However, we don't want somebody buying a ton of small cheap drives to outrank somebody who's bought a hugely expensive system with fewer big drives, which is why towards the upper end of the scale, the number of drives starts to no longer matter as much (see examples below). Example for Large Systems System 1: 100 TB capacity, 50 ⨯ 2 TB drives: 391.2 ranking points System 2: 150 TB capacity, 30 ⨯ 5 TB drives: 510.2 ranking points Amount of drives required for system 1 to surpass system 2, assuming capacities for both systems and drive count for system 2 stay the same: 165 drives, resulting in 510.6 ranking points. Capacity weighs much heavier than drive count as it grows, the influence of the number of drives on the ranking points falls prey to the law of diminishing returns. Example for Smaller Systems System 3: 14 TB capacity, 7 ⨯ 2 TB drives: 27.2 ranking points System 4: 15 TB capacity, 5 ⨯ 3 TB drives: 24.1 ranking points Drive count has a higher weight for such systems, system 3 ranks ahead of system 4 despite having less total capacity. Identical Ranking Points For systems with identical ranking points, post date is the ranking factor (more specifically: post number). Since no posts can have the same number, this is sufficient for unambiguous ranking. Script The rankings and plots are generated by a Python script, which can be found on alpenwasser's github here. Capacity Calculation We count raw storage as advertised on the drives. So, if you have 10 ⨯ 1 TB drives, that counts as 10 TB of storage. Smaller Systems Not everybody needs a big server, and even smaller systems can be cool and interesting (or noteworthy, as we put it below). For such systems we have a secondary list, so feel free to post your machine even if it doesn't quite meet the ranking criteria outlined above. Please still use the template post for your system, and stick to the rest of the criteria as applicable to your machine. External Sites This thread is inspired by the one on the [H]ard Forum, where you can find many huge systems as well. The Dutch thread on Gathering of Tweakers is also worth a look, although it is in Dutch, obviously. Serve the Home is also a great place for all things storage. Support/Bugs At the moment, @alpenwasser is the primary maintainer of the script and stats, so contact him about that kind of thing.
  3. A manager at my uncles business thought paying Dell over $1,000 for a File Server with 1TB of shared storage was a good deal. I proved him wrong after the fact by proposing the building of a latest gen 4 core 8 thread Xeon, 32GB of DDR4 ECC UDIMM memory, and 12TB of redundant storage. Total cost was around $1,400. Here's the challenge. Go to a typical brand server website that sells file servers (Dell, HP, etc) and post here how much cheaper you could build it yourself or how much better you could build it for the same asking price of theirs. There are rules that must be followed: 1. All equipment must be purchased new. No used equipment 2. The OS and any other software must be factored into the cost. 3. The hardware must be of a server variety (CPU, Motherboard, RAM, Hard drives, Optical) exceptions are: PSU, SSD if desired, CPU cooler, Chassis 4. Nothing proprietary such as a Sinology NAS or hardware that will only fit inside a specific case. I understand the asking price of these companies come with insurances but I think for home users or small companies they're bull. If you can build and setup a file server yourself then you can troubleshoot why something stopped working. Here's my contribution: Dell wants $679 for a PowerEdge T330 Tower Server Specifications: Intel Celeron G3900 4GB 2400MHz DDR4 UDIMM ECC Memory 500GB SATAIII 3.5" 7200RPM hard drive 350W Non-redundant PSU (cost includes some services warranties with no option to opt out) I could build a better server for: $587.75 Case: RAIJINTEK ARCADIA WHITE Storage: WD Gold 2TB 7200RPM (4x the storage) PSU: CORSAIR CX-M Series CX550M 550W 80 PLUS BRONZE (200W more power for drives or accesories) Motherboard: ASRock C236 WS RAM: 1x 8GB stick DDR4 2400MHz Unbuffered ECC memory (2x the RAM) CPU: Intel Celeron G3900 (To swamp it with a Intel Xeon E3-1220 V5 4C/4T would bring total cost to $749.93) CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO (better cooler than stock) OS: FreeNAS (Costs $0) Looking at more expensive servers VS building your own the cost gap between pre-build vs build it yourself gets bigger and bigger. The $1400 server I previously exampled Dell would have charged them $3,350 for a similar server. So go. Build a server and post back how much it cost vs what it would have cost for Dell, HP, etc to build something similar or what you could build yourself for their asking price.
  4. Hello Everyone, Context I have recently been thinking of moving my current mATX components into a different style mATX case (just for fun). However I am in the middle of organizing a really nice mod for the current case that I really want to do, but if I move to a different case then it would go to waist (I want the best of both worlds) - so the current case needs something awesome to match it IMO. So I was thinking I could build a dual socket workstation style PC inside (something around 12 - 16 true cores in total), partially out of interest and for fun but also to significantly reduce rendering times (potentially, I'll look into this a little more with the programs I use). Question So basically my question is, are mATX dual socket motherboards an okay/good idea. I know they exist, and I know they work, but has anyone got any specific knowledge or experience with them? And following that any tips? FYI: This is going to be a second Used/eBay air cooled build to keep the costs down (relativity) so I would be looking at older socket/CPU generations. I will be grateful for any support and assistance, Thanks in advance, Alex
  5. Hi, I'm wondering if it is possible to 'split' an incoming internet/fibre connection into four seperate SSIDs? Basically I'm building four new houses, three of which will be rented out (I'll live in the fourth one). Would it be feasible to have one fibre connection come in to my server room in my house then split up to the other houses w/ seperate SSIDs, passwords and such (also traffic monitoring/bandwidth ? Planning to wire up the homes with cat5e. Looking into ubiquiti products to manage all of this, including security cameras. Im thinking it would be a disaster to have four different incoming connections vs having only one fibre connection coming in and then splitting it up. Thanks.
  6. Hi, I am looking for some help with a new build that I am thinking of. I currently have a prebuilt system that I am running Freenas on but the hardware isn't up to scratch as it only has 16GB of RAM and I need more as ZFS is RAM hungry. The old system is not worth upgrading so I thought that I will start a new build and maybe use the current system as a backup system only. So here is my dilemma, there are so many parts to choose from and everyone has their own opinion on what parts are the best parts to pick. I will start by telling you what I would like the system to do, I am currently using the system as a NAS that holds multiple datasets (this is pretty basic and most hardware will support this), I am also currently running a plex media server for my entertainment needs. I am looking to expand the system to use VirtualBox in a jail so that I can access my virtual machines from a web browser. This is where it starts to get interesting as RAM becomes more of an issue. I may also in the future want to expand the system with the plugins that Freenas contains. So what I have been thinking; after watching the video that Wendell put out when he used to be at TekSyndicate, I figured that I should factor 64GB of RAM for my system as I will be running Virtual machines and running Freenas, this also opens up opportunities to use deduplication which is a RAM hungry feature. Currently I am using 4X4TB drives with redundancy and I am getting close to the 8TB limit so I would like to add 6x6TB drives. I will also have 2 SSD drives to speed up the jails operation and a further single SSD as cache for the system. There are so many choices for CPUs and motherboards, this is where I would like some help if someone would be so kind. I have been told by some people to use ECC RAM and some that say it is not necessary with Freenas, any input I am sure will help. As a budget, I do not have a budget yet as I would like to see how much the system would cost but I would imagine that I do not want to go more than £1500 without drives (I know how expensive these drives can be). If you are interested, the current system is a HP Microserver with an intel celeron @ 2.3GHz, 16GB RAM, 4x4TB WD red drives, 500GB SSD for jails operation, HP motherboard. CPU: ? RAM: 64GB Motherboard: ? Hard-drives: 6X6TB NAS Drives (Don't know which ones), 3x500GB SSD (Haven't picked one yet) PSU: ? Case: ? (I was thinking about rack mounting in the future, would prefer to use SATA cables from the drives to the motherboard if we can find a motherboard with an appropriate number of SATA ports) Cooler: ? (I am sure I would be able to find a suitable one after I have come to a decision on the CPU but recommendations are welcome) Thank you for taking the time to reading my long post. I am new to this forum and this is my very first post.

  8. Hi everyone, I'm looking to build my own gaming server / nas. I would to use it to stock my files and be able to have it any where like Dropbox and host my website . I also really want to be able to host a game server on it, I'm currently codding a fivem server (gta) who don't use a lot of ressources but I also would like to be able sometimes to run a server like minecraft and be able to have 20 people's on it without any problems Don't worry for my electricity I won't pay more because it's all in one with my apartment and also don't worry for my Internet I got the fiber with 300 down and 300 up with a 5 ping I hope you could help me cause I don't know a lot in vps and server I'm scared to buy things and see its not too powerful for what I want I would like to put 600 bucks on it or more if it's too short.
  9. Can someone link me a good Game server under £120 for hosting servers. I'm hoping for something good on ebay or that can be shipped to the uk. Thaks dudes. Edit: sorry I didn't think I made myself clear I'm trying to own a literal box in front of me that is a server used for game hosting
  10. Hello! I am in need of a server configuration for my company for around $2000-3000 (with GPU) or more if needed It will be used for KVM Virtualization - 1 Windows and 1 Ubuntu server DIALux software for 3D modeling [Windows] GALA software [Windows] Web server [Ubuntu] NAS (NextCloud) [Ubuntu] Minimal requirements as I see would be CPU: 4C/8T RAM: 16 GB GPU: Quadro ili FirePro 3 SSD (120GB) one for Host (or usb) and two for Guests (We already have HDD) What components would you recommend for my needs? Furthermore, what software would you recommend for virtualization? unRAID Basic (6 devices would be adequate for now)? Crude kvm/qemu? Thank you!
  11. As soon as i heard linus talking about xeons i knew he was going for server hard ware and i immediately rewatched his bare minimum gaming pc build, but seriously though making those choices just make me even more hyped to see the out come, a cheap x class intel vs a xeon gaming build is one thing i always wanted to see , and now with extra tension, this is seeming to be a great season of Scrapyard wars , also a 980 at 180 bucks is just the most generous thing, i was at the edge of my seat at that point
  12. Hi & good day everyone! Just looking for suggestions actually. I've upgraded my pc so i'm left with old hardware & I plan to use it as a home server. Thought it might be nice but to be honest I have no idea what to use it for lol. So there's my question, is it possible to turn it into both a router & a nas at the same time? Might be a pretty noob question but as you can tell I'm not really an expert here. haha. If I can turn it into a router, what can it be good for? I mean asides from the obvious use of a normal router. I've been looking around online & seen it do some sort of added security stuff. as well as QoS (this is where I'm interested in). Though if I'll turn it into a NAS will it still work as a router? I wouldn't mind getting a capable network card for it if that were the case. devices that'd connect to it would be a pc, ps4, laptops, & smartphones. most llikely 4 lan devices at most. Here's the hardware I have for it: - i3 3210 - some crucial 8gb ddr3 ram - asrock z68 pro3 (http://www.asrock.com/mb/Intel/Z68 Pro3/index.asp) - 8 wd green hdds (yeah i have too much) i'll just take 4 or 5 of these actually unless there's some way for me to maximize these hdds - ocz 120gb ssd - this is old but it works fine though i'm a little concerned about drive failure so perhaps making it do regular backups to a dedicated green drive can be nice - corsair 650vs psu also gonna get a case for this later on. might consider a lower psu (like 350-400w maybe) if i have spare budget for it since, well, as you can see with the hardware... yeah 650w is too much lol. i know my hdds aren't red & i'm actually curious about any possible issues if this is a server i'll be turning off everytime i leave the house. maybe i can leave it on at times too for, perhaps, i can use my smartphone & laptop to access its files remotely? that can be heck of a lot useful for me too. lastly, if i were to put a gpu here as well, what use can it have? hahaha thought i might throw this in as well since i'll upgrade my gpu later on this year as well. its just a palit gtx 750 so it's not really a hardcore gpu either. but i'm curious as to what it can do for this kind of setup. Anyway, thanks in advance. P.S. edit after considering my understanding & the need i'm trying to create for myself, here's what i want it to do: - function as a nas (is there a way for me to use 8 hdds in here? like perhaps a way to take advantage of a pci express lane to put in some hdds there?) - run as a router (i'd like to take advantage of a pci slot for a suitable network card) - as a nas, perhaps if it's possible, i'd like for it to have certain programs that can open some files in here (i.e. pdf, word documents, excel sheets, media files, those sorta basic stuff), an example use case scenario would be, let's say, a pc that doesn't have a pdf reader. if it were to access a pdf file in this server, i'd like this server to have a pdf reader ready for it just in case. i guess a more common scenario would be with with microsoft office files. not everyone uses them. (i even use openoffice--bec it's free lol) i've been eyeing freenas for a while but, perhaps i won't be able to run a router os/software along with that?
  13. So a cousin of mine gave me this processor as a gift after I told him I built a gaming/editing pc but I am clueless to what it is, I believe its a server processor. He says it has 61 cores which seems ridiculous. Id like to know if I can use it for video editing and rendering and if it can even be used on my pc. My specs: i5 6600k, gtx 970, asus z170-e and windows 10 home 64 bit. I thought intel stopped making slot bassed processors after the pentium 2.
  14. I'm building my new dual Xeon server rig, and I'm looking for suggestions for a case. My needs are: Sexy NAS Storage (4 or 6+ 3.5 drives, or 2+ 5.25s for conversion) BIG Window EATX/SSI-EEB form factor PSU shroud preferred, not needed Water cooling friendly is a must Any suggestions? Budget is flexible depending on features and sexiness. 😎
  15. I search a lot how to make own VPS but i didn't see any useful. Help me please!!
  16. Going to be setting up a low cost nas from spare parts I have collected over the years. Mostly data storage, but I plan on it doing at least one transcode over network to kodi or chromecast devices if I go down the plex route, pull data off it for adobe editing, and dumping obs streams over network to it. I have two ideas to do, the first is a bit strange but could be interesting to see if it works. Idea 1(lazy windows server): -Windows 10 -throw all my random drives into a JBOD style span volume -keep an archival drive that is larger than span that will act as a clone -set automated backup to archival drive -in event of failure in JBOD span, simply replace drive, add additional replacement drive to span, then move lost data back to spanned volume from archival drive(replacement will be same size or larger) Pros: -spanned drives and archival drive are readable by any windows machine and can be migrated to another machine in event of hardware failures without data loss -windows is easy, set up will be done quickly -adding drives to span is easy, and once I outgrow archival drive I can span that as well to increase it's size -these volumes aren't tied to hardware config of the server Cons: -windows and the word uptime in the same sentence has always made me nervous -"rebuilds" from archival drive will take forever -potentially abysmal speeds because spanning drives and window's software raid implementation is a mixed bag I have read. -limited software choices, less open source options for other things this server may end up doing Idea 2: -debian linux -snapraid to span volumes -fwbackup to move data to archival disk -samba for file sharing over network, offsite back up, etc. Pros: -stability and historically good uptime -snapraid seems to have a better implementation to prevent errors and data degredation and has more spanning options -more control over scheduled backups -much more can be done cheaply on linux as far as creating your own "cloud", hosting my own email server, etc. Cons: -unsure of ability to migrate spanned volume to another linux box in the event of hardware failure -much longer set up -steeper learning curve I am morbidly curious as to how the first option could turn out, and I have been putting off the hassle of establishing idea 2 as I am a bit rusty with terminal work, linux has just gotten easier over time for normal things I rarely use the terminal except to install programs. I am familiar with freenas and unraid and have been hesitant to use them for something so small. Freenas I haven't used and it seems to have a steeper learning curve than unraid. I am not going for a headless server, it will be in my rack under my desk so I will have it as the second input on my monitor and I have been a longtime user of synergy because I hate the cable spaghetti of kvm switches. I also plan to eventually have offsite backup via a friends router running wrt with sftp enabled for a usb hard drive. hardware I will be using, boot drive will be a 64gb usb 3 flashdrive: -phenom II x4 3ghz , 12gb ddr3, antec bronze 600 watt, lian li 4u rack case. -3tb hgst ultrastar, 2x 1.5tb barracudas, 1 hgst deskstar, 1tb wd green, will be buying an 8tb archival drive soon I am curious to see if anyone is interested in seeing how idea 1 can fair and I am willing to experiment with it as all the data I will be moving to it is already on drives on 3 machines so I can field test and not lose data short term, wont trust this system till I have had it running a few months.
  17. I just basically wanted to know the benefits owning a NAS server for a home user. Any help is appreciated.
  18. I am planning on building a server build on a budget. I was hoping for a mini-ITX server motherboard to fit into a case like the node 202 but this is what i have come up with. Is this good?

  19. Good evening fellas, I need help with a project. I'm about to put together a relatively cheap computer that will act as a Server/NAS to transfer and access files when I'm away from home and a LAN server to hook up 3 of my computers that I currently have in my home so I can transfer files between them, access my desktop from outside the house and if possible (it depends on the hardware I will use) make a LAN server for light video gaming with friends in the future. I am quite then noob when it comes to servers and how to build one other than putting the hardware together and downloading a free server OS. My question is, what will I need to set up all the network properties of my project, for example, i want to put this server in a room where I have one of my desktops, currently occupying the only ethernet socket in the room. what do I need to connect the server with my desktop and both of them on the internet? I was thinking maybe a router or a network controller or something similar that will work for my setup. All bits of advice are welcome, thank you in advance. P.S I know using a cloud would probably be easier for me but I have a brother who does photo editing all the time so this server will sometimes act as storage for him as well. P.P.S I also love computers and I'm currently trying to broaden my knowledge on them, so I think it's a good project to get into it overall.
  20. I need to perform a full backup of our company server during the day when everyone is accessing it at the same time. There will be 8 users who will be using the resources and a database application "attace" used to run our day to day tasks used by all users. The server has 550 GB of total used storage and i will be backing it up to a usb external drive. So my question is, Can the backup be done while everyone is hitting the server throughout the day or will there be errors while backing up?
  21. So, over the summer I'd like to do some work for some new toys. (Laptop, PC parts, some server etc.). If anyone has any ideas of what I can do over the summer please let me know. Also, LTT, more "Laptop or Bust" please!
  22. Some time back I built myself a FreeNAS file server. Storage wise it has been running a 3x 3TB raidz1 (RAID5) configuration. Not long ago I implemented 10Gbit into it and the RAID has now shown me it's throughput limits. I plan to kill 3 birds with one stone. I plan to increase the redundancy (raidz1 to raidz2 or RAID5 to RAID6). I plan to increase to total capacity of the array (9TB total replaced with 16TB), and I plan to install 8 drives instead of 3 which will increase the total throughput and help utilize my newly founded 10Gbit link more. In total to compensate all of the drive bays I need 20 SATA ports. The motherboard has 14 but some are SATAIII, some are SATAII, some are controlled by the PCH, some are controlled by Marvel. It's all over. I know FreeNAS using ZFS could really care less about mixing drives on different controllers but I'd still like to put the whole RAID on one SATAIII controller. If SSD's ever get cheap enough I could replace all the disks and probably max out the throughput of the SATAIII controller. The other mishmash of ports on the motherboard will plug into the remaining drive sleds to be utilized for experimentation, wiping old drives and other purposes. I've heard of people taking old RAID cards and flashing the cards BIOS? Firmware? I'm not sure what it's called. By doing so converting it to an HBA but I really don't want to do that. I'm looking for a 8x SATAIII port PCI_e x8 card. I did research of my own and came up with this: SUPERMICRO AOC-SAS2LP-MV8 And then appropriate cables to go with it: 4-Lane mini-SAS to 4xSATA 7pin I like how it uses Mini-SAS and breaks out into 4 SATA ports. It only supports JBOD but I would basically just change no hardware configuration options and set up the RAID in FreeNAS with ZFS. Can anybody say that FreeNAS will respond irregularly to this card without me having to figure out drivers? Or does anybody have a card that they'd recommend over what I found? I'm willing to spend up to $200 but that has to include cables if the card doesn't come with them. All recommendations will be appreciated.
  23. Hey! I was just wondering what type of server rack LMG has in their server room. I'm looking for some good quality racks for a few servers.
  24. Possible future Folding/BOINC rig, I have been working on this idea for a bit over a 1 1/2 years now. All prices are USD and are current with the re-sellers I have researched so far as of 21March2017. Specs; Original Idea was to use a higher end CPU [previous cpu had hyper threading, I did not realize this then and changed to one with no hyper threading] and 980 TI's but this is a better build I believe, much cheaper as well. The original price was upwards in the $10k. Case: ASUS ESC4000 G3S (Includes MB & PSU) x1 1,200.00 1,200.00 CPU: Intel Xeon E5-2603 V4 1.7GHz 6-Core Processor x2 208.89 417.78 Mem: Crucial 64 16GB (4 x 16 4GB) Registered DDR4-2133 x4 527.25 527.25 SSD: WD Blue PC SSD 250GB M.2 2280 SATA III 6GB S x1 89.99 89.99 GPU: Asus TURBO-GTX1080-8G x4 463.53 1,854.12 $4,089.14 This is my more recent idea but this one will be a bit harder to accomplish. Case: ASUS ESC8000 G3 (Includes MB & PSU) x1 3,200.00 3,200.00 CPU: Intel Xeon E5-2603 V4 1.7GHz 6-Core Processor x2 208.89 417.78 Mem: Crucial 64 16GB (4 x 16 4GB) Registered DDR4-2133 x4 527.25 527.25 SSD: WD Blue PC SSD 250GB M.2 2280 SATA III 6GB S x1 89.99 89.99 GPU: Asus TURBO-GTX1080-8G x8 463.53 3,708.24 $7,943.26 Thing is I can increase the core count with a different CPU and use either machine in double duty as either a home server or email server in addition to the Folding/BOINCing. The idea is there but I am still working on the details. I believe with the gpu I selected I can modify the cooler shroud for better flow of air. Any solid and useful ideas or comments to improve on this would be appreciated. Please be mindful that specs are to meet folding/boinc needs and and not high end top of the line specs, this would only be used/accessed by only me.
  25. So I'm tinkering with the idea of building a cheapish little computer to act as a server for my gaming community using parts I have laying around. It will be mostly used for 7 days 2 die and minecraft. Parts wise it's older stuff, generic oem mobo, 450w psu, phenom ii x4 @3.2ghz, 32gb ddr2, 500gb WD 7200rpm hhd. How well would this work and for how many ppl?, the only thing I dnt have is the ram and I wanted to get opinions before I purchase it. Thanks for you time -wardance Forgot gpu HD 4650 1gb
