My System Specs


Thanks 3.0,

Went with 4 of these NOCTUA| NH-U12DO A3 R
and 4 sets of quad channel memory: 4Gx4|GSKILL F3-12800CL9Q-16GBRL. It's not server so I hope it will work. If not, I'll have to return and get the server memory.
Have an Antec High Current Pro HCP-1200 1200W Power supply.
No case yet, it will probably sit naked. Thanks for the advice about the PWMs and the chipset. Have a couple of spare fans sitting around and will see if I can jury rig an old CPU heat sink for the chipset...

IPMI sounds interesting, never used it. Is it hard to set up? Is there a tutorial available that you like? Otherwise, I've already
Downloaded Ubuntu desktop 64 bit and can install that. Will follow musky's Ubuntu set-up with Kraken as well, is that what you would recommend? Really like the idea of using the web app to monitor everything.

Very cool setup 3.0! Yeah, I'll be going with electric heat this winter!
