:P
stateless
Evil_Bob, this thing must be quite loud
retard
stateless i've been out of hardware sh*t for ages now
except sh*t tier
stateless
ah ok
retard
ghetto rigged opteron motherboards with desktop amdfx chips
for dat free ecc
stateless
been looking at some supermicro 1u atom based machines but im not sure they are worth it
im afraid of atom
Evil_Bob
10x SATA3 (6Gbps) ports, 24x SAS3 ports support via optional Add-on Cards
retard
i'd stay away from it for anything remotely mission critical
but fu*k yea supermicro
stateless
retard, well a home lab is mission critical
retard
i'll get to play with all that fun sh*t
dsockwell
for a home lab you're cramming everything onto one chassis
i would go with beefhouse Xeons
retard
stateless el-cheapo 433mhz usb dongle plus 5 dollar 230v switch though
and tbh i'd probably go with a nuc
that can pretty much be a data center in your pocket for lab sh*t
i5 aplenty
dsockwell
RAM is forever the bottleneck though
Evil_Bob
" you're cramming everything onto one chassis" thats what she said
retard
but stateless look at the nucs
shove in an m2 ssd and as much ram as you can fit
dsockwell
my ideal home lab is a motherboard that can go up to >128GB RAM, multiple sockets for add-in processors, a pair of hugeass hard drives, and a pair of fast SSDs
retard
i think i saw some 12tb helium drives
first time i was shown around
dsockwell
cache to SSDs, store to drives (I have tested this setup to 20k IOPS), then helicopterdi*k with the CPU and RAM as necessary
i think those 6 core xeons are getting old and cheap
i think
retard
for cheap ghetto server you still can't beat amd fx 8 core
free ecc
not an arm and a leg like xeon
dsockwell
yeah maybe
retard
so affordable
dsockwell
stateless: do you have any parameters for this lab
retard
but sh*t has been standing still forever
how old is i7 now?
dsockwell
i would avoid 1U chassis because 1U fans are too loud
screamers
retard
amd fu*kers don't compete enough for intel to bother to get their high-end sh*t out of the lab
in an expedient fashion
dsockwell
yeah it's a real shame
maybe the govt should break up intel again
make a BMD
retard
they just do v-tech and amt and other hardware rootkits
sh*t's fu*ked
anyway i'd use intel nucs
multiple
cheap as free, fairly collectible, tiny, powerful enough
16 gigs of ram in each
m2 ssd
pretty quiet
dsockwell
16 gigs is enough for me to do SOME stuff but even with 32 I feel RAM pressure when I just want to play with tech and not necessarily optimize it to run in a minimal environment
the bloat is real and I gotta budget my time
Evil_Bob
dsockwell: what kind of stuff, database stuff or ?
dsockwell
lots of VMs
Evil_Bob
ah ok that makes sense
dsockwell
a new toy install for everything
retard
oh, nuc supports 32GB now
dsockwell
windows, linux, horror-linux, other linux
a VM for software I hate
adds up real fast
retard
then throw more nucs at it
they're fu*king tiny
and cheap
plenty of cpu
i would love software support for crossover usb3 cables as network devices
dat 4gbit per link
for free
link em up and you can do some serious sh*t
stateless
back
dsockwell
hey do you guys know where I should go to ask really basic questions about reverse engineering? I have this windows app...
stateless
im not looking to update my lab just yet, what i have performs quite well
Evil_Bob
dsockwell: if its really basic maybe i can help
retard
but i'd go with nuc over anything atom stateless
stateless
i have a shuttle xh81v with an i3 4360 as a router, low power stuff, fanless
retard
for realsies
stateless
plus a microserver gen8 for nas
plus a switch
dsockwell
do you pay for power?
stateless
yes
k0ga
what window manager do you use in your job computer?
stateless
plus some wifi aps
k0ga, dwm
dsockwell
ok maybe an old Xeon box isn't the best choice
you could be looking at a new one
stateless
yes i don't want old stuff
or anything loud
retard

stateless
or power hungry
Evil_Bob
k0ga: dwm.exe lol
k0ga
I had several problems today because I have to use a tool home made (which is a sh*t), and it creates 8 full screen windows
retard
stateless nuc with i5, 32 gigs of ram, m.2 ssd
k0ga
with information in the title of the windows
stateless
retard, how many nics?
i need at least 2
retard
two gigabit i think
depends on model
biniar
the new rule of networking at home (no moving parts)
