Re: Use overpowerd PSU due to better efficiency?

Which version of the 836? Some have 80+ Platinum PSUs. But yes, you will be limited to using Super Micro power supplies only.

Re: Use overpowerd PSU due to better efficiency?

I should note the server is gonna be a SuperMicro 836 so i'm afraid (aside from the general discussion) i wont be able to use an ATX power supply for it :(

Low Power Xeon Mainboard

Hey guys, i am looking to build a low power 24/7 home server and am currently considering an E3 (v3) processor. I've seen the recommendation of Intel boards for the socket 1155 cpus; but unfortunately there are no server grade (ECC!) intel mobos for socket 1150 available (yet?). So i was wondering w...
