Replace old server

Recommended Posts

Hi,

since its my second time building an server, i need some advice from you guys, many thanks for any help!

 

What i currently own:

 

Case

Inter-Tech IPC 3U-30248 Server Rack ohne Netzteil schwarz

https://www.mindfactory.de/product_info.php/Inter-Tech-IPC-3U-30248-Server-Rack-ohne-Netzteil-schwarz_978291.html

 

Ram*

8GB (2x 4096MB) Crucial Ballistix Sport DDR3-1600 DIMM CL9-9-9-24 Dual Kit

https://www.mindfactory.de/product_info.php/8GB-Crucial-Ballistix-Sport-DDR3-1600-DIMM-CL9-Dual-Kit_794504.html

 

OS:

Debian newest version

 

Raid Controller

https://www.mindfactory.de/product_info.php/Delock-89384-10-Port-PCIe-2-0-x2-Low-Profile-retail_993263.html

 

Mainboard

H81 Pro BTC

 

CPU

some cheap celeron

 

PSU

some cheap PSU

 

Ram*

i would like to upgrade to (i already have it) F4-3000C15Q-16GVRB RAM (https://www.gskill.com/en/product/f4-3000c15q-16gvrb) because i have 4 sticks a 4 GB leftover from my personal computer. 

 

 

Currently 5 HDDs (https://www.mindfactory.de/product_info.php/3000GB-WD-Red-WD30EFRX-64MB-3-5Zoll--8-9cm--SATA-6Gb-s_806167.html). I want to upgrade to  atleast 8 now (later more).

 

 

Budget <1000€ Without storage.

 

I need some advice for CPU/Mainboard(can i reuse the Mainboard)/PSU/usb stick (for unraid) /raid card(i would like to use the one i already have?), like always, low energy and silent. I dont care how loud it is under load and how much energy it takes, but in idle it should be silent and if possible low energy. (it will idle 99% of time)

 

It should be as cheap as possible. Bc the hdds will cost much money and the server dont need much horse power and is not often used.

 

 

I want to run plex and debian on unraid. Nothing special, but maybe i add some dockers if i find them useful.

Hi -

 

Do you require transcoding on Plex, and if so how many streams?  That will help determine the right size for the CPU.  Also, do you want to do anything serious in the debian VM?  Or just play around?

@nuhll -

 

This is your second time asking basically the same question. You got some advice in the other thread that you were not very happy with. Why are you starting a new thread?

 

@tdallen -

 

FYI

Yes, 1 maybe sometime 2.

 

Not play around, but nothing CPU Heavy. What i did i could do with a celeron, so i think everything would be ok.

Thanks, SSD.

 

Hmm, well - take a look at the Pentium G4620.  It's less than $100 in the US, is dual core / hyperthreaded and gets 5298 Passmarks.  It can use the DDR4 RAM you linked above and has enough horsepower for basic NAS plus one or two Plex streams.  It could probably handle a light duty VM as well, but not at the same time as Plex.

Okay, thank you. That seems good.

 

What MB/USB/PSU/(can i use the raid card i own) you would recommend?

I believe you are in Germany.  Unfortunately I can’t recommend a motherboard or PSU for you since I don’t know what is available there  at a good price.  If you want to do the research and post something, I can provide feedback.  For a USB see if you can find Sandisk or Kingston.
