    I am not sure the summer would be long enough. On average I'd say it takes over 6 months for me to finish a system theses days.

    It is an IBM M1015 that has been flashed to an LSI 9211-8i in IT mode w/o the MPT bios. Have been using it in my previous FreeNAS machine for 8 months 24/7 and it has been working great. Especially for $125 or what I paid on eBay.

    $80 each or combined? They are fantastic looking blocks. Watercooling CPUs that can't overclock is kind of overkill but at least it will look awesome.

    I figured it wouldn't hurt to bump the thread.
    This isn't anything hardcore. Its just my backup storage server: ASRock itx server board with intel C2550, 64gb DDR3 1333, 8x3tb (Raidz2, 14.4TB of usable storage), open solaris 11.3 w/ napp-it.


    BP ruined my dinner and my region. (yep, I'm still pissed!)

    Very nice KNrader; those are Supermicro 2x5.25 bay devices?
    I keep kicking around cost effective options to change my setup to something hotswap and with status LEDs.

    specs:

    6x 4GB Hynix DDR2-667/PC2-5300 ECC+REG
    Areca 1210 (yellow SATA cables are from DFI nF4 mobo! :p )
    Mellanox ConnectX-2 (10GbE NIC)
    Intel Desktop 1000/Pro (1GbE NIC)
    CoolerMaster Silent Pro 1000W (overkill, yes, I know :o )

    Intel 330 120GB (OS: Windows Server 2012 R2)
    Scythe fan controller (temp probe attached to northbridge heatsink)
    Lian Li PC-A10B

    the two mid-mounted fans are to cool the Areca and northbridge. The Areca didn't really need it, but the northbridge was getting rather toasty with no forced/direct airflow (~60C iirc).

    Cheap Dual LGA 2011 Rig - Dual E5-2670 Xeons, 16 Cores/32 Threads, @ 3 GHz +

    I got bored with regular single-socket setups and picked up some cheap used server parts to play with. I initially purchased a Intel S2600CP2J Dual LGA 2011 eATX, 2 x Xeon E5-2670 (16C/32T), and 64GB DDR3-1600 Reg/ECC for $360 shipped. I then sold the 64GB DDR3-1600 Reg/ECC for $200 on eBay and paid only $44 for the 32GB DDR3-1333 Reg/ECC I'm now running with - so the net cost for the combo is only $250. That's less than a standard i7 K CPU alone. Then I picked up an open box Corsair Carbide Clear 400C case at Microcenter for $40 which, although advertised for E-ATX, only had 3 of the appropriate mounting holes for the Intel SSI EEB motherboard. So I had to use some imagination to get it installed but all is well. It does make for a compact server since it is no bigger than a standard ATX case

    CPU Cooling is supplied by a pair of Cooler Master Hyper 212s with the CPU2 fan mounted on the back side in a pull configuration. Doing that provided extra separation between the two heatsinks that reduced CPU2's max temp by 5C so both run at 65C under 32 thread 100% load. Used some Noctua PWM NA-RC7 Low Noise Adapters to slow the fans down and keep everything nice and quiet. The PSU is a Supermicro 665W server supply I've had for several years powering my previous X79 and X99 builds. Stuck in my mini GTX 1060, a $15 USB 3.0 card, hooked up my USB Sound "Card" to complete the system, and installed a few SSDs I had to get it going. A photo of dubious quality is provided for you viewing below.

    2. Xigmatek GIGAS mATX Case, HP IPIWB-PB X79 mATX, Corsair 750W Modular PSU, Xeon E5-1620 @ 4.3 GHz (4C/8T), 16GB DDR3-1600, Sapphire HD 7950
    3. Spire PowerCube 501 Mini ITX Case, Seasonic SS-350SFE 350W SFX PSU, Asus H81I ITX, Xeon E3-1230 V3 @ 3.3 GHz (4C/8T), MSI GT 730 2GB GDDR5

    Thanks, I humbly accept this prestigious award!

    But how about the smallest Xeon server? Housed in a tiny Spire PowerCube 501 I have a Xeon E3-1230 V3 4 core/8 thread CPU running on an Asus H81I-Plus/CSM mini ITX board. It's powered by a SeaSonic SS350-SFE 350W SFX PSU and has an MSI GT 730 2 GB GDDR5 Single-Slot, Low-Profile GPU. Here's photo of it side by side with my budget dual E5-2670 behemoth! Below that is a photo of the guts of the mini server with the little fan I velcro'ed in to get rid of the heat that collected at the top of the case.

    Are those v1 or v2 for the 2670s? Also running stock or OCed? Looks like a winner for a crazy low price. I might try and do 2 for work.

    I got my setup at Natex. They have packages with V1's and V2's. Nothing is OC'd, they run at 3 GHz with all 32 threads at 100%. Libby at Natex is very nice to deal with.
