The Dedicated Server

Post  LudicrousYoshi on Mon Jul 15, 2013 10:55 pm

This is what I plan on building with atm:

AMD FX-8320 3.5GHz 8-Core Processor (4.0GHz Turbo)
Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO 82.9 CFM Sleeve Bearing CPU Cooler
Asus M5A97 LE R2.0 ATX AM3+ Motherboard
Crucial Ballistix Sport XT 8GB (1 x 8GB) DDR3-1600 Memory
Kingston SSDNow V300 Series 120GB 2.5" Solid State Disk
Corsair CX 600W 80 PLUS Bronze Certified ATX12V Power Supply

(I will not buy most of these from newegg just fyi, if you ever buy hardware always check pcpartpicker.com prices!!!)

OS: either Win7 or Win2k8
Case: whatever I find in IT department's recycling room

Will 8GB of RAM be enough?

I'll get more sticks in the future, but I mean the server can run fine on much less than that

Found better RAM http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820148655

Requires lower voltage and has lower latency, but it is for the same price Very Happy

I also found it on ebay un-opened for $20 off so being the slut I am, I got 2 sticks xD (16GB)

Was amazingly lucky too since the deal was only going on for 2 more hours and they only had two sticks available

All the parts I ordered have arrived Very Happy

I also found a huge as fuck server tower in the recycling room, spent about 2 hours dismantling it and I should be able to bring it home tomorrow.

I may attempt putting it together tomorrow. If anything I will at least open the motherboard and PSU to see how well I can fit/place them

Everything fits, yay Very Happy

Unfortunately i forgot the 9 screws to attach the motherboard to the case, so I'll do that tomorrow.

I already put the cpu in the mobo and installed the after-market cpu fan

only 2 problems I have is that one fan connector doesnt quite reach its slot on the mobo, and if you turn the case in one specific direction the power supply would fall out xD Working on possible solutions as we speak!

Found a convenient way to screw the PSU to the case and i switched out the fan that was incompatible.

In other news, there was a weird plastic cap that was on a pin on the mobo and when i turned the computer on for the first time it scared the shit out of me because it started smoking xD

Removed the plastic cap and still dont know why it was there in the first place...

Need some zip ties for the SSD and after that I can pop a temporary graphics card in and see if it all works!

Figured out where the plastic caps go, still dont know why they smoked to begin with...

Put everything together and tried turning it on but it would not boot.

Also discovered my mobo has no internal speaker so I'm ordering one so I can diagnose the problem

Turns out I got a defective motherboard

yay...

Replacement arrives in 7 days :/

I cannot explain the amount of rage in my heart right now. A defective motherboard is LITERALLY the hardest to diagnose. The only way you can tell is if you try LITERALLY everything else that could go wrong, and if none of those show problems, then it means the motherboard is defective. FFS of all the hardware I got, WHY THE FUCKING MOTHERBOARD?!
