Description

I build this computer for my family home server. All we are storing on it are photos and don't need that much space, also this is out of pocket and I didn't want it to be expensive. The server software I am using is Rockstor and so far it has worked very well. Everything with a price mark with 0.00 is an old computer or from old build. The CPU cooler used is very silent compared to stock, but it can only be orientated in two directions up or down. I do have future plans of re doing the cable management and getting the ide hared drive into the 3.5 bay. I am happy with the build and its performance.Sorry for potato quality it was taken on a moto g 1st gen. Ask any questions you want.

Plus one for recycling! My Phenom II X2 is still running strong in my server/poor man's gaming machine!

Old doesn't mean it can have a bad PSU (that is what most people think or do, like me), and you put a very good PSU there! :D Happy for that

You really should tape or Velcro that IDE drive down; I've lost drives where they were installed loose in the case and the case was moved while the drive was running. Otherwise, +1 for keeping old hardware out of the landfill (even if the p/s is a little OP). How do you like using Rockstor so far?

I plan to put it in the 3.5 bay on the front of the case

Sorry for the late comment,but it has being doing its purpose. The UI is nice and the set up is simple. This server isn't the only back up I have a external hard drive that the server is back up to.

No problem, real life is there to be lived, right? ;) I have a couple of 3TB drives (but they're not WD Red) that I was thinking of using to build an NAS out of spares with and just wondered how you liked the OS, that's all. You got yours for $61; where, if I might ask?

Good hard drives should be resistant of vibrations of like 5000gs or something.

No, real hard drives are resistant to earth quakes
