Since I haven't hardly played any videogames on the PC for the last 2 months I decided to change my gaming station to a server to dedicate it to the few roles I DID still use it for.
She'll be used for streaming media to my PS3 through PS3 Media Server (not the best, if any better alternatives with support for .mkv's exist I'm happy to hear them). And to serve as a download/torrent station with central storage for my network.
Coming from a powerfull SR-2 build I'm a bit sad I sold it because now I want to toy around with multiple VM machines again :'( but for now this will do (+ uses a lot less power, especially when I get rid of the GTX580)

Hardware:
CPU: i5 2500k
MB: Asus Maximus IV Extreme ( 2x gigabit LAN ports, 4x PCI-e 2.0 x16)
RAM: 16GB Corsair Vengeance DDR3-1600 CL8
GPU: Asus GTX580DCII
PSU: Antec HCP-1200
Case: Cooler Master HAF X

OS Drive:
- Vertex 3 120GB SSD

HDDs:
- 2x 2TB Samsung Spinpoint F4E
- 2x 1.5TB WD Caviar Green
- 2x 500GB 7200rpm Seagate


Roles
PS3 Media Server (stream/transcode on the fly)
Fileserver
Torrent client


For now I just want to get rid of the power consuming GTX580, already sold 1 but now trying to get rid of the 2nd. I'll probably get a cheap GT610 or so since I can't use the CPU's internal GPU.
The Case is more then enough for now, when I need more space for HDD's I have a brand new Xigmatek Elysium standing in the closet.
Future plans is to expand the storage through 5-in-3 frames for easy access.


I haven't decided yet on what OS to run, I want to stick to Windows since that's what I'm used to. Either Server 2008 R2 or have a try with Server 2012 ... or WHS?
Only have experience with Server 2003/2008 so far. Software RAID poses no problem with the Eco HDD's?
7200rpm drives are there for backup/applications as I want to keep the SSD dedicated to the OS only.

This was my ESXi Whitebox project that I abandoned for a Windows Server 2012 w/ Hyper-V setup. Right now it's just server up my files on a RAID 10 array. I have a RAID 1 array being used to store my VM images for all the VMs that I play with. The SSD is running Windows 7, Windows 8, and BT5R3 VMs.

Case: Thermaltake Level 10 GTS Snow Edition
CPU: Intel Xeon E3-1245 V2 Ivy Bridge 3.4GHz
Motherboard: ASRock Z77 Extreme4
Memory: Patriot Viper 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR3 1600
Heatsink: Noctua NH-D14
Boot Drive: Samsung 840 250GB SSD
Data Storage: Seagate Barracuda 2TB x4 RAID 10
Additional VM Drives: Seagate Barracuda 1TB x2 RAID 1
PSU: PC Power and Cooling Silencer MK III 400W Modular 80PLUS Bronze

Here are a few more photos of my micro server with the case lid off like a couple of you asked for:

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)

so I came into a pair of xeon x5550's, so of course I had to cough up for the rest of the parts to get my server upgraded.. thumb.gif

Should have my new motherboard, ram, and heatsinks tomorrow. Just need the time to get all my projects done.. thumb.gif

server once upgraded should be:
dual x5550's
Supermicro MBD-X8DTL-iF-O
32gb ram
32gb ssd boot
adaptec 31205
9x1tb raid 5
3x3tb raid 5

Probably going to run server 2012 and hyper-v to get it all done..
Might actually post a build log if i have the time.. biggrin.gif

Thanks, this is actually my 3rd iteration of my low power micro server.

I started with a single core atom, about 3 years ago. It was OK for file and print serving, but woefully inadequate for everything else, even virtualized routing stressed the CPU. The power consumption of the Atom wasn't that great either, it was 26 watts.

Next I tried it with a Zotac IONITX P-E which used a dual core ultra low voltage core 2 duo, this could handle the routing with ease, but couldn't handle transcoding 1080p in realtime, it also only had one network port so I had to use a USB network adapter for the second port. Power consumption of this system was 22 watts.

Finally, I put this one together, which I think I am going to stick with for the foreseeable future. It is more than fast enough for everything I need, and I don't think I can save much more power, at least not enough to offset the cost of new hardware. Rumors are Haswell will be 20x more efficient at idle, but from my research Ivy Bridge (the CPU itself) already only uses 2 watts when idle, so even if Haswell is 20x more efficient at idle, it is still only saving 2 watts, and I'm not sure how useful a deep sleep state would be on a server. I think Haswell will be more important for phones and tablets, where saving 2 watts and deep sleep states are useful, and there aren't other components that use a lot of power like harddrives. I will be sad to see Intel leave the motherboard market though, their motherboards are the most energy efficient I've come across.

Me again,(with the proliant) I have had a poke around in it and it has 2 146gb 10k rpm sas drives, 1.66 Xeon, 2gb of ram and what looks like a tape reader thing (backing up stuff?) Would it be worth trying to up grade it and add sound damperning?

Asus RS120-E4 server!

http://www.asus.com/Commercial_Server_Workstation/RS120E4PA2/

I added some ddr2 and its posts without errors! and i had a quad nic on the shelf perfect for this box. The CPU is a xeon 3050 dual core 2.13ghz

I gonna make a video about it for my youtube channel later!
