congrats now get a monitor arm and love it even more
all of that seems high voltage. what motherboard is it?mine is at a measly 4.5ghz with a vcore set at 1.248v and llc boost to 1.264v under loadi would think you should be in the 1.35v or lower to run at 4.6-4.7ghz range.
thats actually quad core with hyper threading like an i7 and for pretty much only storage a quad is more then enough but for like $30 more you get the hyper threading.
1 gbps would be fine to connect with imo. issue would be that there would be 1 port for the server and the other 3 for the computers. would be fine but i don't know how your network set up is or if you can just get a small 8 port switch and put the computers on that and run 1 cable between the new 1gbps switch and the 1gbps port on the dlink to get the internet. would allow all the computers faster access to the server and still have a good connection to the internet. if...
eww 100meg connection to the computers. should be fine just connecting the server to one of the 1gbps ports then. i would recommend maybe looking into getting a faster switch if transferring bigger files is a normal thing there if possible. if you want here was a recommendation that i put on the dental office build that would still work just fine for yours other then just needing to change the hard drive size and maybe case.

if you have a raid/expander card that could be the one thing that can cause a hang during boot.
really depends on how much money you want to spend. a basic server with e3-1230 with 16gb of ram can do all that. this biggest thing would be the storage and the way you want to go about that. a raid 10 would be best raid but would cost a lot of money on hard drives to get you to 20tb. would need at least 8 5tb drives and a good raid card with a battery back up. as for transfer speed you would be limited on the connection between the computer and server. and if multiple...
im kinda bias but i would say find a nice thick butcher block table/bench top off craigslist, refinish it and put some bench legs on it. did that to my desk and has been awesome having a 3ft x 6ft of desk space that can hold just about anything.
if you are willing to buy used this just popped up for a good deal imo. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Supermicro-X9SCL-motherboard-Intel-Xeon-E3-1220v2-8GB-Crucial-DDR3-ECC-/162383169905?hash=item25ceca8971:g:PVkAAOSw-0xYlWuD its a little older stuff but add some more ram and the rest of the parts would save close to $400 over buying new.
if you back up the server properly you don't have to worry about the "skill" to recover it. its ether rebuild or send to a shop with a white room that and that is $$$$$. here is the build i propose. you may be able to cut a couple corners but this would net you some of the best stuff https://pcpartpicker.com/list/xnspNN PCPartPicker part list: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/xnspNN Price breakdown by merchant: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/xnspNN/by_merchant/ CPU:...
