Description

Built to replace a similar style build from 2009, this has an upgraded RAID controller, SSDs in place of 15krpm SAS drives, a larger data partition and a newer video card (upgraded from 570).

this build will be in testing for a while until windows 10 is released, then it'll become my daily use rig, pushing out the current build which will retire to the lab for ad hoc builds.

hardware RAID is essential for me as my rigs run 24x7 and I don't have time to rebuild a PC every time a drive fails. 32GB of ram will support multiple VMs and allow me to create multiple virtual machines at the same time and still get reasonable performance.

Using pro series drives for longer life and slightly better performance This system is noticeably quieter than my old server chassis based build, the larger intake fans seem to work well.

I'm not too worried about cabling and all the glowy stuff is turned off, as there's no windows on this case.

A man who knows his PCs would instantaneously recognize the only chassis company that could have built that case, Silverstone.

So the build is sideways? I mean does the came make it orienteered the other way? If yes, that;s cool.

I noticed the case is not listed, but I would really like to see this also as I'm unsure as to how this build is meant to be sitting

Here's the link for the case, looks like it was inadvertently left off of the build: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/silverstone-case-sstft02busb30

The case is listed and available in PcPartPicker, no idea why it's not shown on the left.

just out of interest what do you do the computer to use it 24/7?, and sick build btw, how come you went with the 30k over the 20k? thinking about building a similar rig... And also why that particular motherboard over the 99 deluxe?

I think it's a server type build

Yes, its a combination lab / office /gaming rig, so it can be running VMs during the day and gaming on the occasional evening.
