And a pair of Noctua NF-S12B ULN 120mm to place them in the fron slots. The one that comes with it might go to the bottom, or not be used at all.

Phenom II X6 1100t@4.5GHz

Corsair H70

HIS Reference 2GB 6950 flashed to 6970 bios

2x4GB Corsair Dominator advertised timings

W7 Home Premium

And for the person above me, Noctua has really quiet fans, I also like Scythe's Gentle Typhoon, but they're discontinued on newegg, I think they still have them on Amazon though. 


Not bad, I got a new rig today with specs simmilar to that. In fact I'm getting a Sapphire HD 2gb 6950 Unlocked, so I want to OC it to 6970 bios as well :3 [tell me how you did it]

 

 

but

 

i5 3550 [not OC ing]

Gigabyte UD3H Z77 Mobo

Looks nice, but why 850W psu? Are you planning to do SLI? Still though nice rig. That 560 ti is a nice card [got my HD 6950 2GB New cheaper than a 560 ti :3]

 

But it looks good [sorry for double post]

 850w will be better regulated at a lower than spec'd draw and run cooler with less noise as well as give it room for future builds and upgrades. Its also why I really like to overspec the power supply a bit.

Ahh, well there you go. The Spec for the card I'm getting is like 500w I think, and I'm using a 600w. I don't plan on upgrading this system anytime soon so it should be fine for now, but when I do look to upgrade I'm sure I'll go going with all High end stuff, more so than I did this time and build a whole new rig. It's fun learning about the new Technology. I've actually looked into a build a few times now, once in 2010, once in 2011, and now in 2012, and thankfully I'm buying in 2012, as the last 2 years I was broke >.>

 

But for those who plan to upgrade, yea Over Spec'd would be a smart investment!

I'm running an iMac for my main machine (what? It's pretty, has good specs, and never breaks). But I just built myself a server with the following specs:

 

Processor: 3.33 Ghz i3

RAM: 8 GB

OS Drive: 40 GB SSD

Storage: 5 x 2 TB HDDs in ZFS raid1 array.

 

Running Ubuntu Server 12.04. Best thing I ever did. Ran me just north of $1,000 for the entire thing (I had an extra 2 TB sitting around) and now I have one device that can handle all my media storage, backups, downloads, etc. Next step is to get a ruby environment up and running so I can do some local development. Also need to set up some git repositories... Fun times ahead!

I never knew ubuntu was able to do ZFS. Is that a recent thing or did I just miss that all this time?

It's not built into the OS, you have to install it. I went with ZFS for Linux (which does a kernel extension). So far the only downside I found was that it didn't auto-mount my zpool every time my server started up, but I was able to sort that pretty easily through Webmin. If you're interested in trying it out I highly recommend it. I found it to be quite easy. Nothing has gone wrong yet so I don't know how well it works on that front but everything I've heard about ZFS is that it's pretty rock solid, which is why I went for it over RAID.

 

For anyone curious, It's running wired over a gigabyte network and I get around 70-100 MB/s of practical transfer speed. Better than USB 2.0 or FW800 so it works pretty well, I should say. Plus all the side benefits of having a server you can do whatever you want to.

I worked with some Solaris servers before, but I've never managed to learn enough about the system to make me want to run it on a server at home. ZFS being the only reason I would want to run a Solaris server in the first place. So, I might give this a shot with debian.
