Low power draw untangle box

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
As the title suggests - what would be the lowest power drawing build for an Untangle server serving 10 clients with WAN traffic running 24×7?

Looking for core build components - already have the NICs.


Also consider bang/buck please.

How many NICs are you adding? Any form-factor requirements?

Could go with a Zacate board http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157228

or i3 2100T plus whatever board you want; probably overkill CPU power for Untangle

Both will be about 35W full load

^This

If they are pci-e x1 then I would get this:
CPU - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819116401
or (Plenty for ten users)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819116039
Mobo - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157246
Ram - Any single 2gb ddr3 would be plenty
PSU - (overkill but only decent low rated one) - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817151086

Form factor doesn't matter as it might be rack mounted in the future.

Would be adding two NICs for three total. Internal, external and DMZ

Are they PCI or PCI-E? Either way my build should do. I am sure you could get away with using an Atom build because a P4 could handle 10 users.

I have 2 of both kind. Does the board support ECC ram? I have some of that lying around. At work right now and can't check NE.

What is your budget?

Kontron makes a very interesting board that has just about every expansion type you need, uses Core 2 Duo mobile chips, DDR2 RAM, and 3x Intel gigabit NIC's in a mini-ITX form factor.

Ebay sale for the system.

I'd give you a link to a regular store, but I have never found any store that carries these boards!

Not sure, but if you have ECC DDR2 already then an AMD build might be your best bet. Most AMD CPUs support ECC ram (my Athlon II is running 4 gigs of it right now), so Zacate might support it also.

Not actually check the compatibility though - but AMD is more likely to support it than Intel at the lower end.

Do you just want the ECC RAM because you have some? It is true that you want good reliability with ECC, but the network protocols that matter have redundancy built in to resend the packets/frames.
