Memory: 8GB, 8x 1GB fully buffered PC2-5300F 667
PSU: 700W
HDD: 3x SAS Disk = IBM 146GB SAS IBM 10000RPM 2.5" Hot-Swap 42C0252
HDD: 1x 2000GB sata III drive
HDD: 2x 80GB sata ii disks in raid 0
Raid controller: Dell Perc 5i PCIe

and closeup of the perc 5i



not the tidiest but its kind of work in progress at the moment.

How much did that board run you? I see those CPUs going for pretty cheap on fleabay. I would assume getting ahold of a lot of DDR2 would be pricey.

I ask because I'm at work and can't browse ebay right now. redface.gif

However, I did notice that those SAS disks get very hot, which was a little bit worrying.

I hope to get a much faster LSI controller, which can support 600Mbps soon, but was going to test out some SSD's on it and if its any good use it on my gaming rig.

I think I'll probably need additional cooling then when its doing some work. right now its for home networking and doesn't get much heavy use, except when moving a video file or a iso image around.

i have 4x2TB x2 Raid 5 on my perc 5, gives me about 300 MB/s which is waaaaay more than i need due to only having 1gbps ethernet (100MB/S)

Sorry, Mine is as mentioned earlier, simply a file server with some random disks and some samba shares, I do occasional FTP into it remotely if i need a file while out of the country.

For now just a place to dump my files while i experiment with other linux distros and system builds.


I also have a couple of IBM system x3850's which are awesome bits of kit, and have a 1U IBM Eserver which runs Pfsence. In additon to this, I have a HP Proliant DL350 G5 which needs a role but i feel is too overkill to use as a mere firewall...

my main gaming rig is based on a server board: Asus Z8PE-D18, which i got relatively cheaply.

At some point I want to be able to have all the servers and workstations running CX4 interconnects that way i wont be limited to gigabit speeds when moving files.

Exactly, You are right. smile.gif

I have found this also during an office update job ages ago, which i recall fondly...

At the time I was doing some routine IT work, in house, and the company didn't want to pay for a contractor to do the work, so they got me to run some tests on the LAN since the workers were reporting that they were waiting a long time to move word documents around. at that time we had some Packard Bell boxes, which had 10/100 LAN and we were running about 8 machines inc a server through a HUB, (the server had a 56K modem in it for internet) Yes it was dire...

Normally for me, people on that type of LAN don't really need to move large files around, max 150MB but nothing massive, well maybe the mild exception of databases... I swear I'll never go back to that level. Those speeds were tortuously slow.

The biggest problem was that all the computers in the office at the time were using IDE drives, and didn't get anything more than 60MB/s data rates to begin with, now throw in a really piss poor LAN, and abysmal cables, then it is easy to see why it resulted in waiting about 20 minutes to move a 100 meg file between machines. Even mailbox synchronization was a daunting task, easily overloading the server at peak times. ( In the end, I finally convinced them to upgrade to Gigabit LAN hardware, & get some better machines, which turned out to be a vast improvement. Virtually an instant increase in performance.),

Now I'm just thankful this was spotted when it was, otherwise they would have never updated. In the end we got new machines with Sata drives, and gig Ethernet on board and its been a lot more stable. smile.gif


Ive also seen situations such as yours where the drives outperform the LAN, but thats a good thing to have headroom.

What exactly are you going to connect the CX4 cables to? 10Gb ethernet, Infiniband, etc?
