TODO: FIX GAL IMAGES

  • Motherboard
  • Dual Intel Xeon E5606 Processors (2.13 GHz 8 MB Cache Socket LGA1366)
  • 64GB Ram
  • 4 x 2TB WD Green Drives (Raid 5 for 6TB space)
  • 2 x 30GB OCZ Onyx SSD (system drive -- overkill for ESXi, but in raid 1 stupid reliable)


Still waiting on cpu heatsinks, some molex->esata power converters, and RAM. After that, a power up test, cpu burn in, memtesting.

Are you collocating the server somewhere? How much do they charge for 2U?

I need to order something similar soon

I have a place in Texas, 3u slot, 100$/mo flat rate. It's supposed to be an unmetered 100megabit line, but I don't really think that's the case. Regardless, the bandwidth is fine and it's hard (probably impossible) to beat the price.

Gibson 2 (current) will have to move out to make room for this one. I am also cannibalizing the RAID card from G2 for this one.

Yeah, I turned off a few processes. It does seem to have helped -- but the machine was also restarted (via a crash) so that generally makes a lot of stuff better.

I just checked with a SMART tool on the HD:

Current Drive Temperature:     30 C
Drive Trip Temperature:        25 C
Manufactured in week 30 of year 2002
I'm amazed they are still running at all.
