i got lucky since the corsair mounting bracket screwed directly into the backplat of the asus board. Helps keep the noise down also

Did you put deltas biggrin.gif This sort of situation seems a bit bad I would have just gone with a normal air sink setup lol. You could boost airflow by velcroing another fan behind the AIO or just push pull. thumb.gif
Seeing as you put SSDs then no heat to worry about lol.

Hey you just gave me an idea to put 4 480GB SSDs in a array (well they're cheap at 229SGD and with 20$ off instantly ... yeah. Zotac Premium SSDs are really cheap. Or a AMD R7 SSD could do well.)

Hey question for you guys that know more than me. I just got a C2100 and I'm trying to figure out how to hook all my drives up and which controller(s) to use. The server came with an H700 hooked up to the 12 front 3.5" bays (using two SAS cables). I want to have the following setup:

  • 2x 120GB SSD (RAID 1) Boot
  • 2x 500GB SSD (Mirror) VM1
  • 8x 5TB Toshibas + 4x 256GB SSDs (Tiered Storage) Storage and VM2 [+4x 5TB Toshibas at a later date]

OS will be Server 2012 R2 Datacenter, I would like to run Bitlocker on the system so the boot array will need to be an actual RAID array through the H700 I assume. I can run the 3.5"x12 bays off an H200 right? Or maybe the optional SAS Mezanine card available for the C2100? If I hook the other SSDs up through the H700 can I pass them through without creating a RAID array? I've had great experiences with Storage Spaces and I'd like to stick with it when possible as it makes troubleshooting and expansion a breeze.

Thanks to anyone who can give me any advice, I know a few people around here have the C2100. thumb.gif

Jyst thought I'd post my "new" server here.
I got my hands on an Intel S5520HC and a pair of Xeon X5650s and cannibalised the chassis from my xw8400 workstation that was running a pair of E5345s.
I've got it running as a PLEX server and a video encoding machine.

It's a bit of a mess but I don't have the money for one of those fancy Intel server chassis, and I had to mangle the rear I/O shield to get the motherboard to fit properly because my dremel isn't working and I need a new one.
I got the 48GB of RAM at a good price from the same bloke I got the motherboard from.


If you've got a super sharp eye you'll notice none of the fan connectors are connected to the board because the bloody board blasts the fans at 100% because I don't have one of those fancy Intel Server chassis so they're connected to a 4-channel fan controller instead. tongue.gif


I've got the storage running in two RAID arrays; one RAID 10, one RAID 0, and two drives on their own.

Hey everyone, I'm back again! Finally went ahead and ordered the L5640 Procs and ordered 64gb of memory for my Dell T710. I am Curious about something, and hopefully one of you guys can chime in.

Does anyone know, if Dell, and especially the T710's CPU Cooler pattern is standardized? I .e. if i remove all of the OEM brackets, could i for example bolt a Corsair AIO and use the X58 Bracket? Trying to find some intricate ways to shut this thing up. It's not horribly loud, especially in my now server closet, but I'd definitely like to shut it up a bit more if possible.

I forgot to previously, but once my Ram shows up, and i have everything installed, i'll snap some pictures of my server in the closet.

I recently upgraded my server, so I'm adding my humble contribution to this thread. I started my server journey 2 years ago when I bought an el cheapo Rackable Systems 2U :



Specs :
Intel S5000PSL motherboard
2x xeon L5420
16 GB DDR2 FB-DIMM
450W psu

For a home server, I was satisfied with the overall performance of this machine, on wich I had 4 VMs running hosted in Server 2008 R2, but there were some clouds in the sky :
  • I soon realised than 4 hdd bays where not much for storage, and I was soon limited in this regard. I had 2 raid 1 arrays, one for VMs and one for storage. To maximise the space, I had the host booting from a usb stick with all paging/writing disabled as advised by microsoft.
  • Server was incredibly loud, blasting 3x 80mm fans at full throttle all the time. I tried to modify the BMC to allow the motherboard to control the speed but nothing worked. I ended up "5 volting" theses fans to reduce the speed, but the PSU was still quite loud. As you can see on first picture, I located the server in my house "engine room" near the furnace and electrical pannels, where the furnace noise was hiding the server sound.
  • The FB-DIMM memory is not only slow, it run hot and is power hungry ! The whole system at idle was drawing around 180w with 8 x 2GB sticks. I replaced thoses sticks with 4 x 4GB, wich lowered the consumption at around 160w, but this is not ideal for a 24/7 machine. I also suspected the PSU to be highly inneficient.

I ended up upgrading as I really needed to add disk space, and after some shopping, ordered a used Supermicro Opteron based tower server. For my needs, this time the match is perfect. I bought the complete system first, and liked it so much than I completed it with a cpu/ram upgrade, the Nics / Raid cards and some spares parts to replace the usuals failing suspects. I now need to find good deals on high capacity Hdd to add storage.






Specs :
Supermicro SC745TQ-R920B case
Supermicro H8DGi-F motherboard
Single AMD Opteron 6276 (16 cores @ 2.3ghz)
32 GB DDR3 ECC (4x 8GB)
Adaptec 5805 RAID card + BBU
HP NC364T quad ports Gbit ethernet
Supermicro PWS-920P-1R 920W Platinum PSU
2x 256gb SSD in Raid1 for Host and VMs boot drives
3x 1TB hard drives ; 2 in Raid1 for Storage, and 1 for backup / snapshots

I've seen a lot of consumer grade tower case, but this server tower is in its own class. This is some serious stuff : built of heavy steel, the case alone weigth 28kg without anything inside. Hot-swapable redundant PSU / PWM fans / SAS/SATA drives. Airflow is impressive because cable management is childplay, the air shroud aims air directly on CPU/memory and finally, the 5 SanAce fans actually move some air! Best of all, under normal load it is not louder than a gaming rig.

The motherboard is also quite solid from my point of view, as it supports 2 CPUs and a ridiculous 512GB max amount of ECC ram. The nicest feature on it is the IPMI : the screen next to the server was never used, I'm able to do everything from my office two floors up. And I mean everything, power on/off, insert boot disk/usb, play in bios, monitor hardware, raid setup... Exactly as if you where next to it, and all you need is a web browser !

My only regret is not finding this kind of setup in an Intel platform. Still, thoses opterons are really good values, considering than mine scored around 9k in Passmark for a chip I paid 60 buck. Also, the idle power consumption without the PCI cards is of 90w, 105w with the cards... Not a xeon D, but not bad either !

All that to say I'm now a Supermicro fan smile.gif.
