I use this system as a two in one PLEX media server and gaming platform. I need all the extra RAM to speed up conversion. The only thing that is missing from this is my cooler, which hasn't arrived yet.
Nice Roswell PSU. Do the extra light cause any issues? Attract any aliens?
Only when there is a full moon. If you like the PSU you will really like what I did with the spare parts from my upgrade. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811144279
Nice. That's one big server with all those drives. :D
I run them in a raid setup, but yes I have 7.5TB available for movies.
Why not an Intel Xeon?
I'm pretty sure the socket type is wrong, and I just looked at benchmarks and went with the best price per performance you know?
I am just saying as a server a xeon would work better you would need a new motherboard right?
P.S. a Xeon has the same gaming power, but better at things that need more cores.
Yea... I've been thinking about just building on an actual server MB next... but I am kinda on the fence.
How well does that CPU cooler perform? Heard some mixed reviews about it.
