Upgrade plan

It’s time to upgrade my system! Everything! Or not really because some parts are just shuffled around.

Here’s the planned final state.

Home / Server

  • System: Dell PowerEdge T110 II
  • Processor: Intel Xeon E3-1230v2
  • RAM:
    • DDR3 PC3-12800 ECC UDIMM 8Gio x4
  • PCI cards:
    • SATA Controller / LSI SAS 9212-4i
    • Ethernet Controller / Realtek 8111
  • Misc:
    • 2×5.25″ to 3×3.5″ HDD Converter Bay / Century iStarUSA BPN-DE230SS-BK
  • Drives:
    • Seagate 600 SSD 240Go
    • SanDisk Ultra II SSD 240Go
    • Western Digital Red HDD 6To x5 (or 6?)

New all in one server replacing current combination of Microserver and Z210 SFF.

Home / Desktop

  • System: Custom built
    • Case: SilverStone Micro ATX SST-PS07B
    • Power supply: Antec Green 650W / EA-650-GREEN
    • Motherboard: ASRock AB350M Pro4
  • Processor: AMD Ryzen 7 1700
  • RAM:
    • DDR4 PC4-19200 ECC UDIMM 16Gio x2
  • VGA: ASUS GeForce GTX950 / GTX950-2G
  • Optical drive: TSST (Toshiba Samsung) DVD-ROM 16x
  • Drives:
    • Crucial MX300 SSD 525Go
    • Samsung 840 SSD 250Go
    • Western Digital Blue HDD 250Go x2

Now with 100% more modern everything. No, just new processor/motherboard/RAM.

The VGA and SSD can use better upgrade but those will do for now.

Office / Server

  • System: HP Z210 CMT
  • Processor: Intel Xeon E3-1235
  • RAM:
    • DDR3 PC3-10600 ECC UDIMM 4Gio x2
    • DDR3 PC3-10600 ECC UDIMM 2Gio x2
  • Misc:
    • 1×5.25″ to 1×3.5″ HDD Converter Bay / Century iStarUSA BPN-DE110SS-SV
  • Drives:
    • Transcend SSD370 SSD 512Go
    • Samsung 850 EVO SSD 500Go
    • Seagate 7200.10 (or 11?) HDD 3To x5 (4 connected due to lack of SATA ports)

Processor is upgraded from E3-1225 but RAM is downgraded from 20Gio total.

Office / Desktop

  • System: HP Z210 SFF
  • Processor: Intel Xeon E3-1270
  • RAM:
    • DDR3 PC3-10600 ECC UDIMM 8Gio x4
  • VGA: MSI GT730
  • PCI cards:
    • USB 3 Controller / Inateck 2 Ports USB3
  • Optical drive: HP DVD-RW 16x?
  • Drives:
    • Crucial MX300 SSD 275Go
    • Seagate Barracuda HDD 250Go x2

Another victim here. The RAM is now ECC but the VGA is downgraded far from GTX660 which I’m moving to somewhere far away.

Notes

Now I look again there’s possibility the current drive structure plan to not work because of compatibility problem. I will need to figure that out later and shuffle the drives around as need. I should’ve taken memo of the compatibility problems I encountered.
