My old 24 TB server died, I had way too many things wrong with it and I just got rid of my last 750GB drive. It's time to start fresh (Somewhat)


I will be reusing my case, power supply, and some 2TB drives, but below is what I am looking to purchase.


I will be using Server 2012 with one or two virtual linux machines.


What do you think of the combo?


1 G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 (PC3 14900) Desktop Memory Model F3-14900CL10D-16GBXL

I've been looking at that CPU wasn't sure if the additional cost is worth it.


I'll be running the VMs inside Server 2K12, I have had some compatibility issues with my raid cards and XEN.

For what it's worth I just put these into my server this weekend:


Gigabyte GA-F2A75M-D3H

HyperX Blu 8GB DDR3-1600 CL3

AMD A8-5600K Black 3.6GHz 4MB Cache


Parts came to about $200 since the board was a refurbished. I'm running 10 drives with a total of 20tb.
