Did I get a bad deal on this server. Netburst Processors.... =/ - Page 2

post #11 of 17
That's certainly a decent server for the price.

I have several DL380 G4p still in operation in my data center, mostly for menial tasks like active directory replicas with DNS server installed. I've got one running Windows 2003 32-bit with SQL Server and ColdFusion MX 7 installed since they were "new" products, and the thing still runs great.

The DL380 G5 is a little faster if you can find one, but they are known for power supply issues. I only have three G5 systems, and all three of them have had BOTH power supplies replaced in their life, and some are on their third PSUs. Thank goodness they have redundant power supplies - I wouldn't be caught dead running one in production with just a single PSU. Sometimes you turn them off, and they won't turn back on w/o replacing the PSU. LOL.

It will work perfectly for something like pfSense. However it is old, therefore probably lacks SAS or SATA and will comsume a lot of power.

I say get rid of it and go for something like a Dell C1100 with a pair of Xeon L5520's.

I am seeing alot of C1100 forsale on Ebay. Good stuff? Also found a Quad Proc L5530 for around 350 + Shipping....

I'm just worried about single core performance becase java is still single threaded.

If you are worried about single core performance you just need the fastest clock speed you can get

The C1100's are good boxes. You will struggle to find a better deal for a good server at the moment.

The L5520 is a low voltage first gen i7 basically.
