What @ATS said. AVX workloads are a different ballpark. Keep within specs and you are fine. My 1U systems usually run warmer than my 2U and my 4U it depends on if I am trying to keep the box silent or not.
Moving away from Cisco or Juniper I've found a few interesting switch deals in the past weeks:
Fujitsu - Fujitsu XG2600 10 Gigabit Ethernet Switch XG2600A | eBay $800 but I bet you could get it for under $750 and Liquid8 is a good seller we've used many times. Description says there needs to...
I don't post many great deals but these are selling for not much more than the cost of the case:
ebay link: Supermicro 1U Server 6016T NTF 2X Quad Core E5540 2 53 GHz 16GB DDR3 2X 250GB 672042044801 | eBay The 250GB drives suck and the processors can be replaced with l5600's cheaply. They do...
I don't think I actually save money. It's like when my ex used to tell me she saved $$$$ at Costco.
I compared my pre-here what I would've spent on SSD and rackmount servers (7k) to what I did spend (4.5k) and that's a really nice fat of change to haul. And you peeps are fun too!
I'm not into OC at all. BUUUT - @OP - if you are on here, you probably have a $300 router not some linksys POS and you probably have at least 1-3 NAS units each with SSDs and HDDs worth a pretty penny.
You -> Keyboard/ mouse -> PC -> GPU -> Monitor
Get whatever you want. I read reviews and...
LP bracket: Supermicro AOC S2308L L8I 6GB s 8 Port SAS SATA PCIe LSI 2308 LP RAID Controller | eBay
I don't know if this is a super hot deal but it's $60 less than the next 2308 i saw and has a best offer.
$700 + free ship. There's best offer too:
Samsung 845DC Pro MZ 7WD800EW 800 GB Internal Solid State Drive | eBay
More expensive but 3d nand and MLC not TLC. It's about $200 off not including the best offer.
2 available too. Fast drives.
