Why?

See @STRMfrmXMN @Energycore or @Starelementpoke for PSU needs

See @deXxterlab97 for blue fetishes (if that's your thing)

See @ShadowTechXTS for cats

@Implosivetech's got you covered for all your graphic design needs

And lastly, never put a CX green series PSU in a high end build https://youtu.be/Oybz5Q-If9M?t=7

Why?

Primarily to simplify things (though some people have such a hodgepodge of drives it can still be pretty time-consuming to enter their config into the system). But yes, it is of course completely arbitrary.

@alpenwasser I actually have two submissions in this post, completely seperate systems. In the rankings you linked to my first system's post, but only put in the statistics of the second, smaller system :( And by now I've actually increased the capacity on both those systems, and added a third seperate system that is also eligible, so I will make a new post making it clear the specs of all 3.

@{EAC} Shoot em UP Added your new system to the list, relegated the old one to the secondary list (no, we don't delete posts). The pics in your new post seem to be broken though! :( As for the noise: I put noise dampening material into our server, it actually made quite a difference. Wasn't cheap though.

 

 

Fixed the pix. And for noise, I am about to swap out the PSU's for my "old" RM750, I recently upgraded to a RM650i since my rig doesn't turn my 750's fan on, which I know is fine for the PSU, but it was dumping heat into my case and it was noticeable! I don't run my fans at high RPM since everything is on water so the heat was just stagnant in there.

Obviously we won't be starting to add work systems to the rankings (would be a bit unfair),

Probably a good thing.... They just installed a new storage closet at work... 2 PB redundant space, to put alongside the existing 1.2 PB closet :D

I'm pretty sure my contract forbids that. Plus, it sounds way more exciting than it is looks. Imagine a full height server rack with a couple SAS boxes and (I think) four servers. There, you're done.

 

The software is amazing though (GPFS).

I'm using the AMD processor because it was a leftover from my previous server, i will upgrade it eventually because of its high power consumption.

I'm confused - what AMD processor?

Please remove the entry in the listing that is currently attributed to me. It is not a correct/complete entry. I have 3 systems to submit:

 

System #1: RPC2304

Hardware

CASE: Norcotek RPC2304 (plus ICY DOCK MB324SP-B 4x2.5" hotswap)

PSU: Corsair RM450

MB: Supermicro X10SLM-F

CPU: Intel Xeon E3-1230v3

HS: Stock Intel heatsink

RAM: 32GB ECC DDR3L 1600

HBA: LSI 9207-4i4e and Vantec UGT‑MST644R

OS USB: 128GB Samsung Fit

HDD 1: 4x 4TB HGST HDN724040AL (NAS)

SSD 1: 6x Samsung 850 Evo 250GB (4x 2.5", 2x mSata)

SSD 2: 2x Crucial MX100 512GB

SSD 3: 2x Samsung 850 Pro 128GB

SSD 4: 2x Hitachi HRLP0400S5xnNMLC 400GB (SAS)

HDD Total: 16TB

SSD Total: 3580GB

 

Software and Configuration:

OS is HyperV Server 2016 and storage system is Storage Spaces. The RPC2304's 4x3.5" drive bays attached to the LSI HBA, the 2x Crucial and the 2.5" 850 Evos connect to the motherboard, the 2x mSata 850 Evos and the 2x 850 Pros connect to the Vantec. The two SAS SSDs are in a SAS JBOD connect via the LSI HBA (they are lonely with 14 empty bays!).  I was basically limited to this chassis because the rack it has to fit into only has a 26" internal depth. Adding the Icydock 4x2.5" bay was a snap, I took the front bezel off the case and dremeled out a hole.

Usage:

This system is in my house. Bulk data storage, Plex server, VM host for Linux VMs (Hyper-V), backup target for computers in the house (in VMs)

Backup:

Nothing runs directly on the server, everything is in VMs. All VMs are replicated every 5 minutes to System #3 (813MTQ), which then replicates them all to System #2 (DS380). Both 813MTQ and DS280 are doing daily backups of all VMs, those that they run and those that they have replicated to them.

Additional info:

My usage of the twelve Pool SSDs is mainly for Storage Spaces Tiering, which means they actually are data drives not cache drives. Storage Spaces does not keep a copy on the Cold tier of data in the Hot tier - a virtual disk created with 100GB on HDD and 10GB on SSD shows as 110GB capacity. Therefore I have 16 drives of raw space.

 

If I make a Simple virtual disk across all the SSDs, I can get 1000MB/s writes. If I make a Mirror virtual disk across all the SSDs, I can get 1700MB/s reads. These numbers were collected from within a VM, meaning that there was some degradation to the performance.

System #2: DS380

Hardware

CASE: Silverstone DS380

PSU: FSP400-60FGGBA

MB: AsrockRack E3C224D4I-14S

CPU: Intel Xeon E3-1220v3

HS: Stock Intel heatsink

RAM: 32GB ECC DDR3L 1600

HBA: LSI 2308 (on mobo)

OS SSD: 120GB OCZ Trion 100

HDD 1: 2x 3TB WD WD30EFRX-68E (Red)

HDD 2: 1x 2TB WD WD20EFRX-68E (Red)

HDD 3: 2x 3TB HGST HDN724030AL (NAS)

HDD 4: 1x 3TB Seagate ST3000DM001-1E61 (Desktop)

SSD 1: 2x 240GB OCZ Trion 100

SSD 2: 2x 480GB Corsair Force LE

HDD Total: 17TB

SSD Total: 1440GB

 

Software and Configuration:

OS is HyperV Server 2016 and storage system is Storage Spaces. The DS380's 8x3.5" drive bays attached to the LSI HBA, all SSDs connect directly to the mobo.

Usage:

This system is at my grandparents/uncle's house. Bulk data storage, Plex server, VM host for Linux VMs (Hyper-V), backup target for computers in the house (in VMs).

Backup:

Nothing runs directly on the server, everything is in VMs. All VMs are replicated every 5 minutes to System #3 (813MTQ), which then does daily backups. This system also does daily backups of itself, and of VMs replicated from System #1 (via System #3), to a virtual disk on the Storage Spaces pool.

Additional info:

My usage of the four Pool SSDs is mainly for Storage Spaces Tiering, which means they actually are data drives not cache drives. Storage Spaces does not keep a copy on the Cold tier of data in the Hot tier - a virtual disk created with 100GB on HDD and 10GB on SSD shows as 110GB capacity. Therefore I have 10 drives of raw space.

System #3: 813MTQ

Hardware

CASE: Supermicro 813MTQ-350CB

PSU: Came with Chassis, 350W

MB: AsrockRack E3C224D2I

CPU: Intel Xeon E3-1220v3

HS: Stock Intel heatsink

RAM: 16GB ECC DDR3L 1600

HBA: none (mobo ports only)

OS USB: 128GB Sandisk Ultra Fit

HDD 1: 2x 5TB HGST HDN726050ALE610 (NAS)

HDD 2: 2x 1TB WD WD10JFCX-68N6GN0 (Red, 2.5")

SSD 1: 2x 120GB Intel 520 Series

HDD Total: 12TB

SSD Total: 240GB

 

Software and Configuration:

OS is HyperV Server 2016 and storage system is Storage Spaces. The 813MTQ's 4x3.5" drive bays connect directly to the mobo.

Usage:

This system is at my house. It's sole purpose is to back up all the VMs from both houses (the VMs handle backing up the computers and doing all other server-y tasks)

Backup:

Nothing runs directly on the server, everything is in VMs. All VMs from both System #1 and System #2 are replicated every 5 minutes to this system. This system does daily backups, to a virtual disk on the Storage Spaces pool.

Additional info:

My usage of the two Pool SSDs is mainly for Storage Spaces Tiering, which means they actually are data drives not cache drives. Storage Spaces does not keep a copy on the Cold tier of data in the Hot tier - a virtual disk created with 100GB on HDD and 10GB on SSD shows as 110GB capacity. Therefore I have 6 drives of raw space.

Someone is incredibly close to looney on those graphs...

It may take time, but there may be a small surprise on looney's setup, I think all he needs is a little motivation. xDxDxD 

 

 

Once I figure out a couple more components I may be surpassing looney for a short amount of time until he adds more storage.  I just placed an order on 18 x 6TB drives today to go with my 12 x 4TB (156 TB total)...I'll post the config once I can figure out a few more parts.

I haven't added more drives yet (soon), but I did update the OS to Windows Server 2016 (for the second time...I somehow screwed up the first install). I also have the OS drive as a 480GB instead of a 240GB Sandisk Extreme Pro.

 

I don't it matters much here, but my server GPU is now a 980 Ti instead of a FirePro V7900.

 

My goal for 2017 is to slowly add in one 4TB drive every few months or so.

 

@handruin Best of luck to you. I hope someone is able to get the #1 spot, even for a little while.

Even if I don't surpass him, it's fun trying.  In true LTT fashion I made a sad HDD christmas tree from the first delivery of my drives.  :-)

Your tree has more storage capacity, even if it's cheaper and slower :P Looks great to see!

Hate to break it to ya but I'm also planning a little update.

ESX will stay the same.

Current NAS node will also become ESX, I have just bought 2x 2660 v2 for that and 128GB of ram

 

As for the NAS, I bought a 1U supermicro, I'm not sure which CPU's I'll run on them, probably 2x E5-2630 with 192GB of ram.

Also buying 8 more 4TB drives.
