Server build at work

Postby Darkfoxx » Tue Jul 28, 2015 3:35 pm

Just got done building this monster at work.






Specs:






Supermicro CPU cooler
extra fans

All for the very low price of $1656.38. Consider that a prebuilt from Dell or HP would run you at the very least ~$2,779+.

Will be used as a VM host server (VirtualBox). I'll post HDD read/write speeds once I get the OS on it. Should be disgustingly fast...
