Comment: Actually, my build server (Score 1) 558 558

by vikingpower (#49892509) Attached to: Ask Slashdot: What Hardware Is In Your Primary Computer?
Fujitsu TX 200 S7: two (2) Xeon E5-2420, totalling 12 physical cores, 24 logical threads, 2 x 15 MB cache 48 GB ECC RAM 1 RAID controller, with backup battery ( not present in my mind what brand ) 4 x 1 TB Western Digital yellow disks 2 x 1 Gb/s NICs 1 x 10 Gb/s NIC

The nice thing about this machine is 1) how quiet it is ( hums in a corner, while ventilating away in 30+ degrees celsius 2) its low power consumption: 80 to 84 Watts while running a Jenkins build job.

I know I will probably curse myself in a few years for having bought this machine, as the mobo has built-in obsolescence. Fujitsu even cry it out loud in their user manual, when mentioning the aluminum-electrolyte capacitors. Until then, it will have been my absolute workhorse.

If you can't learn to do it well, learn to enjoy doing it badly.
