Project Sh!tShack

Not had a build log on here in a while So here goes.

As many of you that came to the Lan will know my desktop got battered by the postman and needs alot of work to get the formally Powerful machine back and kicking.

Stage 1. (Essential) Mid January
  • New case
  • New Cooler
  • New Motherboard


Both the cooler and the case were heavily damaged in the post the cooler rattles and the case is not quite square anymore.

The motherboard is being replaced as it does not support Linux due to a Faulty APIC table and it being a DFI this was never Fixed.

For the case I am going for the Fractal Design Mini. It Got a Shit ton of 3.5 inch bays and is a Quiet and Cool case.

For the Cooler i have not made up my mind fully yet. I am Either going to go for a Refurbed Corsair H80 or a Noctua NH-U12S. Not Fully Made up my mind yet on this one.

For the motherboard I have a Asus Rampage 3 Gene on the Way. Paid a Bit more that is should for a 3yo Board but It is the Rolls Royce of X58 Boards.

Stage 2 Late January
  • New CPU

On Ebay there has been a Chip that has been described as a overclockers wet dream. The Xeon L5639. These are Custome chips made by intel for facebook. They are low power 60w 6 core parts. On Many X58 Boards people have reported Running at there board's Max QPI 70% overclocks are not unheard of.

Stage 3 Late March
  • New Disk Controller
  • New Spinning Rust
  • New SSD's

The purpose of this is to merge the functions of my Fileserver and desktop into one Machine.

The Disk controller in all likelyness will be a Reflashed IBM M5014. These can be Flashed with a LSI Stock Firmware Quite easily.

The Disks will be 6 2TB or 3TB Disks on one Raid 5 (Maybe raid 6)Set The should provide 10Tb/15TB of Storage. Enough for the Next Few years.

The SSD's Will be 2 256GB Samsung Evo's Connected to the LSI Controller in Raid 0 (backed up to the Spinning Rust Nightly).

All This is going to cost me the best part of a Grand But Should last me well into 2017

Re: Project Sh!tShack

Fair play, it will only run at 8x though and on some boards 4x
