I am using this server to host this website but also to do some virtualisation. There will be some upgrades happening to this server over time, like a migration to complete solid state storage and more memory. The server also stores footage from surveillance cameras. The SSD that is currently in my server is only for Virtual machines.
This system is a lot more power efficient with the CPU around a few W most of the time, the old Xeon (E5504) usually had to be at 2Ghz at 80W Power draw.
|Crucial||- 8GB DDR4||To be upgraded soon.. only because I couldn't decide yet if I want to go to 64GB down the road.|
|Intel||Core I5 7600||Blew away my expectations when it comes to power and thermal performance (with stock cooling)|
|Be Quiet!||Straight Power 10 (400W)||:) (I love these) I am using one in my server because I found they are reliable and efficient!|
|-||5x 500GB||Way too old, need replacement.(MTBF 600.000 hrs) 110 - 180MB/s (500+ with caching)|
|Samsung||OEM SSD (benchmarks on about page)||Achievement Unlocked - scavenger.|
