I'd love to have a chance to own something like that, if it's too loud, then just replace the fans, it's useful to learn new things with it thumb.gif

Hell!, Make it as power friendly as you can, it could be a good File Storage server for your network biggrin.gif

 

If you change out the fans it won't post...

Here's my server. The primary goal of my server was to minimize noise and power consumption since it would be run 24/7 at home. When I finished, I measured the power consumption using a kill a watt and it came in at 16 watts during normal use, the only time it increases is if Plex is doing some realtime transcoding. Considering my old Asus WL-500W router consumed 13 watts once I plugged in a usb stick for storage, I am pretty happy with the end result.

The server is used for the following:
-File & Print server
-Router
-Wireless Access Point
-Plex Media Server
-utorrent downloader with webui
-pyload
-Simple DNS plus

The Specs:
Intel i5 3470s w/ Thermaltake Slim X3 HSF
DQ77KB ITX motherboard
1TB Western Digital Blue 2.5 inch hdd
8GB DDR1333 ram
Mini PCIe Wireless N Adapter
Minibox M350
Windows Server 2003 x64
DD-WRT x86 in a Virtual Machine

(forgive my crappy camera)

That's an awesome build, can you post pictures? Also how do you have that setup? Is everything running in it's own virtual machine or...? I was thinking about building a mITX all-in-one server like this for a file server, router/firewall, torrenting box, media server, small webserver, and use it as a HTPC.

 

Also, this might be a bit extreme, but this guy is using the same motherboard and got the power consumption down to 5.9 watts by modding the motherboard.

Yeah, more pics, open the case.

On another note, I'm doing basically the same thing right now (mATX low power firewall build), parts arriving today, will probs do a build log and post here.

I will try to post some more pictures with it opened up soon. Unfortunately to do so I need to schedule a bit of downtime to take more pics. I have read about the fluffy2 build, his power numbers are pretty amazing. His default power consumption before mods was 11.6 watts, I attribute the difference in power consumption from his default numbers to; him using a msata drive vs my mechanical drive (I don't think solid state would last long with constant torrents), active network ports at all times since I use mine as a router, and perhaps him having a slightly more efficient power supply. The rest of the difference to 5.9 watts is his mods, but soldering up the motherboard is a bit too extreme for me. Also since mine is a server I don't want to risk stability.

I am running Windows Server 2003 x64 as the primary OS and vmware with dd-wrt as a VM. I considered using ESXi and running both as VMs. But my thinking behind it was that; the I/O redirection overhead from the VM Image harddrive would make it more efficient to run Windows Server 2003 as the primary OS. Pretty much all of my applications are Windows based so it made the most sense, plus dd-wrt is so compact that it can run completely in RAM. Windows also has slightly better driver support so the idle power numbers are slightly lower with Windows vs ESXi.
