evo reloaded
« on: September 28, 2011, 04:25:47 pm »
There have been many upgrades, see this thread for updated specs.

---------------------------

This is the continuation of the old server machine

Gigabyte G41MT-S2P, socket 775

Nice and cheap.

SEASONIC 430W S12II-430 Bronze (third from bottom)

High quality, silent PSU.

SEAGATE ST31000528AS 1TB 7200RPM x 4

They are setup as software RAID5. Total capacity is ~2.7TB.

ARCTIC COOLING Freezer 7 Pro Rev.2

Nice and silent CPU fan.

ARCTIC COOLING Arctic F8 PRO PWM

Case fan (right behind the cpu fan, though offset)

Intel Celeron CPU E1400 dual-core 2.00GHz, socket 775

The old cpu that was on my desktop. i got a similar cpu to replace it, with more MHz and FSB

Dual Channel Kingston 4GB (2 x 2048 MB), DDR3, 1333MHz, ValueRam
Nice and cheap ram

Running Debian 7.0 Wheezy

It is a silent machine, and the noise is made by the hard disks spinning. I'd like to place them in such a manner that they don't touch the metal part of the case (they can be suspended with rubber or strings) at some point, but the case is kind of small for that.

There's also a small UPS

I had considered using silent minimal computers like a Raspberry PI or one of those MSI wind boxes. But you can't really fit 4 HDD's with those. I ended up setting up a regular PC with silent fans.


What I do have, comparable to a raspberry PI, is the router:
CPU           RaLink RT288x/RT305x WiSoC@320 MHz
Ram           32MiB
Flash   4MiB
Network   5 10/100E
