Do you know how much power it pulls? I have an UPS connected to my server and it does about 220 Watts 24.7 - I'm interested to know what yours pulls I'd expect lower than 60 watts from the wall.


I honestly have no clue, I would love to see what it is pulling 24/7. The mobo itself is ment to be only running on around 30 watts... I think...

I guess it is dependent on the RAM and HDD's. I managed to dig out some images...

I removed the stock APU heatsink / fan, for fanless...

These images are a little old, as its current state the only fan in this system is the one in the PSU, otherwise I would say it's now completely fanless with the removal of the case fans :p

I think the PSU I'm using could proberly power about 6 of these boards, haha. I'm only using it because it was what I had lying around.

An old x64 Pentium 4 that a friend practically gave to me. Not a server in the traditional sense, but I use it for an IRC bot and streaming radar images from GRLevel3 to my webspace.

I recently switched from having a server built out of "retired" desktop PC parts to a dedicated build which I put in the loft the same time I wired our entire house for networking.

The server (2 x Xeon E5620s, Supermicro X8DTL-iF with IPMI, 16GB RAM, 4 x 750GB HDD in RAID 5, Fractal Design XL case) runs VMWare ESXi and I use it for development and file storage: 1 Win Server 2008 with IIS/.net, 1 Debian server for Apache + MySQL + my subversion, 1 MineOS server, I run an instance of Openfiler for network storage, 1 mediawiki server I use for development notes etc, and I have a few gigs and resources free which I use to create virtual machines for trying new OSes like Windows 8/Ubuntu. releases.

My power meter for the server; usually pulls ~143-145 watts average, but can get a little higher in the midst of summer when the fans work harder as the loft gets a bit warmer; I originally had Intel STS100C coolers but they make a lot of noise, so I now have two Noctua NH-U12DXs instead; they're almost silent and they cool better.

Cant go wrong with the HP Micro Servers, i believe mine was £110 after the £100 cashback.

Currently got 5x 2TB drives in mine, running Windows Home Server 2011, it makes a great little NAS / Server.

I'll have to post a pic of the cupboard it lives in when im home.

I have a server with a similar E-350 motherboard. At idle with all the hard drives spun down it does ~30Watts the wall. With the 5 drives spinning it does around ~60W I believe (It's been a while since I last checked).

If your loft is converted into a room, with proper roof insulation then I could understand, but putting a server in the loft with just felt and tile on the roof... that must be like putting a server in an oven!
Stereopixels looks like a normal loft from the images, with boxes and random floor boarding... :s

What bracket wall mount have you used with that monitor?

I have a server with a similar E-350 motherboard.


Which board did you get? I'm thinking of building another with an ASUS e35 as it is already fanless and comes with 5 SATA on board.
