An update on my old home server since I just upgraded its storage, RAM, and it no longer lives in a cardboard box. OS: Debian Stable Case: Tray CPU: 4x Opteron 8431 2.4GHz hexacores Motherboard: Supermicro H8QME-2+ Memory: 32GB (16x 2GB) DDR2-667 ECC Registered PSU: Corsair CX750M OS HDD: Old WD 160GB laptop hard drive Storage: 2x Toshiba 5TB in a ZFS mirror and 2x Samsung F3 1TB in a ZFS mirror (probably retiring these soon) Cooling: 4x Cooler Master Hyper TX-3 I use it...
