I don't think mine is necessarily a server but some people could find virtualization particularly interesting... for me it's to mess with different environments.

Main purpose: Gaming desktop - sig rig 2012...
current main vm: dev web server - ubuntu server 12.04
other vm: Ubuntu Desktop 12.04 to run eclipse and to mess with... I prefer Fedora though
- win 7: just a windows safe room >.> don't really plan to use it but if a program doesn't run on 8 it's an option.
- CentOS 6 minimal - it's more of a crash machine for my vps of similar specs.

Reboots to OS X 10.8.1.

I really want more ram but 16 seems to be ok for now. My CPU struggles sometimes while running a vm and playing a game though :S least I'm guessing it is the CPU not the GPU causing those fps to drop.

I was under the impression it was because the various temperature sensors required a small amount of time to give accurate readings
And the fans ran at full speed just to be safe, until the temperature was confirmed and they could spin down?

Though thermistors (should they be used) would give an instantaneous reading (due to the fluctuating potential difference), so I'm not sure...

I think it runs the gamut to calibrate for speed control. How loud are the 3U Supermicro servers when they run PWM with real Supermicro boards?

That's also a possibility. I was just going on how my old fat PS3 operated. I've never actually put our server under enough load to raise the fan speed noticeably. But i have seen that when you remove a hot-swap fan the rest increase to 100% to compensate. Even for a few minutes after you put it back in.

I think what your getting confused about is thinking all of us just play games and overclock. Many members on this forum are in the IT field, having servers to work with on your own time is more valuable to your career than what can be measured with dollar signs wink.gif

TBH noise isn't an issue, as it's on a different floor to the offices. But given the choice i'd still rather have a current gen server. But i work with what i've got.

Yes I know. I have dealt with my fair share of Poweredges. Relatively speaking, the newer generation servers are much quieter than the older ones (including the 1950, though I think the 2600-2800 series is the most rambunctious), be it at cold boot or at idle/load. The spinup noise on the newer models is much more muffled, more of a "whoosh" sound than the jet engine sound that the older servers have.

At idle, a T620 (for example) is barely louder than an Optiplex 7010.

I really do want a newer server. But before that I want a fully gigabit network.
