If you check my photo of my servers, it's in a seperate room with just the felt etc.

thankfuly though it's a big old area so probably doesn't get much hotter than 30oc :rofl:

but they've been on 24/7 for 3 years plus, apart from the odd power cut.

I need to install cpuid or whatever it's called to see how hot there running

100% agree, except I never got my cashback :(


I had to push them for it, it took me about 10 weeks to get it.

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.


I have the MSI E350IA-E45, but I have a standalone 4-port raid card for RAID-5, since the board only supports RAID 0/1.

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.


Microservers FTW! Does the whole world have these? hehe

What bracket wall mount have you used with that monitor?


Just a cheap one from eBuyer. But I've only used the monitor once since it going in there, which was to configure the networking. Everything else is handed by ESX or SSH.

Seriously, MicroServers are the best things since sliced bread :D

yup micro server here as well, N40L - sweet little box, and price is hard to beat! Add more ram, extra nic and fill it up with the space you need. Provides me with my router, my nas and my linux shell box plus anything else I want to play with at the moment via VMs on esxi.
