In this video I will show you one of the recent upgrades to my file server I have at home.
It had a cheap power supply and the original fans in there and I finally decided to invest the money and change them in the hope of better temperatures and longer lifespan for the entire system.
Specs of the current hardware:
- Mainboard: AsrockRack C2550D4I Mainboard
- CPU: Intel Atom C2550 Quad-Core
- RAM: 16 GB DDR3 ECC RAM
- HDD: 4x 4TB HDD in Freenas' RAIDZ2
- Case: Silverstone DS380 Case
- PSU: Silverstone SFX 300W power supply
- Fans: BeQuiet Pure Wings 2 (PWM)
This video shows me upgrading my pile-of-hardware-computer, which I lovingly called my first real file server, to something decent. *No offense, old hardware! I still love you, just not as my server ;) *
Specs of the Old hardware:
- Mainboard: Asrock AD2550-ITX
- CPU: Intel Atom D2550
- RAM: 2 GB Non-ECC DDR3
- Hard drives: 2x Seagate 2 TB
- Case: yes
- PSU: A cheap 200W Seasonic one
- Fans: Errrm - the power supply had one?
What about the old hardware?
That mainboard and RAM is now my media center PC thanks to the on-board GPU - which is still sh!t, cause it only works under 32 bit Windows - but it plays 1080p Blu-Rays without any problems in Kodi, so I'm happy! :)
