The redundant power supply came with the server. It is nice, but not necessary. The amount of memory is really dependent on the project you want to run. Most projects use very little memory. 4GB for 24 threads would probably work for most projects. I am using 16GB for the 24 threads on the new boincer and that should be good for just about anything. I think it was yoyo? that had some large tasks that I ran into in the pentathlon that used all the available memory and...

It is too damn hot to run the computers and it is crunch time at work. I do have all the parts to quiet down the 2P box.

bring it
That project runs pretty good on the 4P
