rack servers, do i need a rack or anything special?

Recommended Posts

You don't NEED one, but it is preferred.

That being said, I had a huge one running in the (carpeted) floor of one of my closets for a couple of years.

Probably overheated like crazy, but it ran fine

Nothing needed. The ventallation is in the front and back.

 

These are all over ebay but they are aging. This one is a great deal at the current price though.

 

It will use a lot of power and generate a fair amount of heat, so in the long run it may be more economical to use something more current depending on your situation.

 

A small rack might be useful because you will need a network switch, power conditioner, and maybe a kvm if there isnt a built in solution. A rack keeps it nice and neat in a wheelabout enclosure. You can find good small racks by looking for music roadie equipment.

 

Nice find though if the price stays under $1k.

i found some video's this thing is CRAZY noisy! and srek said the cinebench score on these cpu's is pretty low.
