I built this for work with a budget of $1,500 CAD before taxes. The purpose of this server will be to sit in our rack and run our custom R packages which are single threaded for 10+ users.
I have just installed Ubuntu Server on it and will be running speed/thermal tests soon. In the BIOS with the case closed I am getting 30C temps. The system worked perfectly and everything was easy to install. The case screws to take off the top panel were not very good quality, but otherwise I am happy with the case so far.
I will have more pictures and information in the near future. Next step will be putting it in our rack and getting Docker on it so we can load our relevant containers. Then we will throw everything we can at it and see how it goes. I am a little concerned about the thermals but we will see as the server room is quite cool and I have all the fans set to max.
Future updates will be in comments.
