Finally removed the "beige" (well, white and blue) monstrosity from the rack and replaced it with some more respectable rack hardware for the same, but much improved purpose (KVM host and KVM/LXC experimentation). Sloooooooowly coming together.

Quad Socket 192 Threads

He's my contribution:

CPU: 4 x E7-8894V4 ES 24 Core @ 2.3Ghz base, 2.7Ghz all, 3.2Ghz boost
RAM: 512GB DDR4 (16GB 2Rx4 DIMMs, mix of Micron and Samsung ebay specials as ram is stupid expensive these days)
MB: Supermicro X10QBL-4CT
NIC: X550T2 20Gbit Bonded
NVMe: 256GB Samsung PM961
Case: Rosewill Blackhawk Ultra (heavily modified to fit non standard mb, riveted drive cages removed, top fan grill altered to accommodate push/pull cooling through AIOs)
Coolers: 4 x 92mm Asetek 545LC AIOs, 17+ Noctua fans of various sizes.
OS: Debian 9

That chassis picture was part way through my build and is a little old now. I switched the bottom intake for a 200mm, moved the old bottom 140mm to the front top and attached 2 additional 92mm to the motherboard to cool ram. System pulls around 1kW at load, idles around 160w. Added some pretty time series graphs and htop screenshot of it running too :)

That looks insane and beastly as heck! Really interesting build. You might be able to fit a 140mm fan where the 5.25" slots are (if true 140mm spacing holes) since the edge of the bays seem to have a few holes still (possibly use washer & nut). A 5.25" bay is 133.35mm, so those holes might just be in reach. Just throwing ideas out there. There are 5.25" adapters of course but since you don't have the bay side walls anymore to screw in, I don't think it would work. Not to say you really need it.

Thanks :) It's a Broadwell E7 V4 quad socket MB. It's very efficient given my space and cooling constraints. I have another dual socket 44 core E5-2696V4 OEM Linux machine I use as a network gateway and workstation (see attached, again an old picture and has changed a fair bit since that was taken). I prefer this quad socket, saves on a lot of desk space.

Cheers, definitely different with it's 4x all in one water cooling. Yep that's where I moved the bottom 140mm fan to in the end after fabing two metal plates. Helps a lot with temperature, as the ram gets cooked by the Jordan Creek II memory buffer heat sinks. I bought all my ram second hand off ebay and had several soft ECC errors. After replacing those bad DIMMS (3 out of 32, not a bad failure rate considering it was half the price of new, ram is such a rip these days :( ) and the additional fans, it's running great now.

Awesome machine indeed...

Not sure where this 1/2 price ram of which you speak lives on ebay? ;-)

I'm seeing lots of full-boat $200/16G for "pre-owned".... I'll keep looking.

Your best bet it to search for EOL obscure modules from the big 3 manufactures such as: m393a2g40db0-cpb and mta36asf2g72pz-2g1a.

I looked at SK Hynix too but was less of that around at the time of buying

If you are prepared to wait a bit, take the risk of faulty DIMMs and to buy in small quantities (a few sticks at a time or if you're lucky several from "clean" server pulls) you can pick them up. As long as you're running the same model of memory per channel, matching all memory is a myth. I'm running 8 Dimms of Micron and 24 Samsung of two slightly different models in my Quad socket without issue.

This is amazing. Well done! What purpose will this serve?

I moved into a new home recently and have been working one migrating things into a rack. I have the hardest parts done now, all the wiring. Today I finished it up and got my router moved into its own rack mount case.

Still need a case for my fileserver. But that will have to wait. All the ones I like are around $400-500. Unless someone has a line on a solid 3U or 4U case with hot-swap bays.

Hi everyone, here is my 'server/media' PC, It has:


X3450 xeon cpu
16gb ddr3
p7p55d
2x680 in sli for gaming/streaming
1x1070ti for testing purposes
2x500gb hdd
2x1tb hdd
1x10tb hdd
1x60gb ssd
cougar 1000w psu.


I am going to be building a windows server 2016 environment where I need a lot more processing power than this. I was thinking of buying a dual X58/1366 supermicro board and loading it with the max RAM(192)gb and 2xXEON L5520 for 24 cores. In the simulations/lab that will be running the resources don't necessarily need to be blazing fast but a lot of physical cores and ram is needed for virtualization (more clients). Because the X58 supermicro boards don't have driver updates for windows server 2016 will this affect the ability to use windows server 2016, or will the older drivers install fine ? are these boards only good up to 2007/2012? thank you for any reply or input.

edit: https://imgur.com/a/Qa4tiTK here is a picture, ocn picture service isn't letting me drag the photo, attach it, or accept the link for the photo lol..

I love the muscle builds here. Not sure if I posted mine in this thread. Don't always need a ton of muscle to get the job done.

AMD Kabini Quad on the AM1 socket. 8gigs of ram. 120gb ssd for containers / os. 2tb spinner for media storage. And 2tb usb 3.0 for snapraid parity. Direct boots to Kodi for media center in living room as well as provides pxe installers / ltsp pxe boot kodi boxes around the house, dhcp, dns, minecraft, mythtv-backend, apt caching, transmission, backup target for all laptops in the home. All on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS base.

Currently housing 530 movies, 1200 episodes of tv shows, 7-8 gigs of music

I need to get a can of air and clean it out. Otherwise running like a champ for the last couple years.
