Server build


Recommended Posts

Hi every one!


Here in a month or 2 I might be build servers and colocating them with tcadmin installed.


I can build good stable desktops but I'm really not sure what kind of server boards brands I should choose. But this is something what I am looking at getting


Harper town processor

asus server motherboard w/integrated graphics

16GB of Ram ECC Fully Buffered

2x 10/10/1000mb NIC

350-550 power supply


since i'm hosting my server probably going to be up 24/7 except when no in use so the fan I'm not sure how many rpm I should get. I need fans that cool good but last long without failure.


How long should I test a server before I colocate it?


What are you opinions on building this server. What should I modify? Also I need a bandwidth monitor that can monitor each application.

When it comes to servers its hard to say.


If you want single processor MB'S just get a high end desktop board. Asus is the best.



If you want dual cpu MB go for a tyan if you can you cant beat them


As for ram i wouldnt go for more then 8 GIG if you are running Valve games


If you are running COD4 and games like that then 16 GIG yah sure if you can afford it..



As for PSU 550 for x1 dual quad, x2 quad core 750 or more


You net cards are great



Thats my 2c worth
