I am going around in circles on this, so thought I would ask for help from the community. I need a very powerful server that isn't too noisy to sit by my desk. I'm currently running a three year old Dell Precision 690, but the motherboard is going...
Specs that I need:
Dual Quad/Hex core processors for 64 bit OS
> 48GB of RAM
Raid 10 SAS - 4 x 600GB preferably at 6Gb/s
I originally thought I would try a Dell PowerEdge T710, but then I saw some complaints on noise and an article on modding the fans (not something I want to do).
I guess I'm steering towards a Dell Precision T7500 today, but I just noticed that it doesn't have 6GB/s, at least with the configurator options I've been trying.
Does anyone have experience with a powerful, yet quiet tower server?
