I noticed you are getting a 350w PSU for the new file server; might be a bit low wattage with the hardware you are using. And I was wondering if you'd have a faster throughput with two 500gb hard-drives in raid, rather than one tb drive, although the Hitachi is supposed be a blazing fast one.


I thought the same thing with my last file server but a mega geek informed me of the low power requirements of Sata drives... my old file server had 7 sata drives in it with a 180w PSU 0_o and there were never any problems...

As far as RAID-0 goes... on the file server... its serving up all the media through a gigabit connection which the single hitachi can almost fully utilize at 80 megs a sec... but RAID-0 makes me nervous, increasing the odds of losing media by %50... I do backup the final rendered files from off of my file server onto external drives but the increased throughput of 30-40 megs isn't worth the extra risk to me... Could do RAID-1 but then thats only half the storage....

I'm not going to be OC'ing any of the CPU's heavily.... and from the research I did... the minor OC'ing I will be doing is well within the means of the stock heatsinks...

Its kind of fun to be your own IT manager though eh? and system admin and render wrangler and and and and and ^ ^

OH yeh I added a poll on this blog to the right---> Make your guess!
