    That's crazy that you can get those CPUs for under $200, ES or not.

    You could always virtualize the setup and run a FreeNAS setup virtualized and still have Windows workstations virtualized too if you'd want to go that route. But for the cost you paid you couldn't ask for much more even if 90% of the cores will never be utilized.

    Here's the breakdown from a previous post:
    Parts list:
    E5-2630 V4 - $145
    Asrock x99m Extreme4 - $169.99 (after MIR)
    32GB crucial ballistix - $125
    TJ08B - $22.50 (after shipping)
    Corsair H80i - $27 (after shipping)
    Corsair CX650M - $30
    Nvidia GTX 650 - $30
    2xHGST 4TB Deskstar NAS drives - already had
    1xHGST 2TB Ultrastar 7K3000 - already had
    250GB Samsung 850 evo - already had

    Total: $550 - a little more than I wanted to spend, but selling the mediasmart server should help me recoup a decent portion of it.

    How much did you pay for your 2650 if you don't mind me asking? I think the ES was the best way to get some decent cpu power for cheap. I've been extremely happy with it, transcoding 4k movies to my cell phone from hundreds of miles away is awesome.

    I had considered virtualizing things, I'm pretty lazy though, lol. With school I don't have a ton of time to mess around with it, and I haven't had one issue with server yet...

    I was tempted to get the 2650 but I just couldn't pass up this QS 2630. Either way it's probably overkill for my usage...

    Same as mine is major overkill, but in other news I bid on a 2699V4 for no reason other than why not.

    That's what I thought. I still don't think I will win the bid, but if I do it is a steal lol.

    So a little update to this.

    I had a couple of BSODs on the server and thought windows had offed itself. Turns out one of the sticks of memory went bad. Sent it in to crucial and 3 days later I had a new stick.

    I also picked up a used 1060 3gb from a schoolmate for $80!! I was going to throw it in the server for F@H and to be a dedicated steam stream machine, but I think I may sell my 980TI and use that since I don't game much anymore
    I did do a couple of loops of firestrike and time spy just for fun.

    Just scored a 3 3.5" hotswap bay to fill up the 2 5.25" slots on the case for free on ebay using ebay bucks and their $15 off of $75. I don't have anything to put in it yet, but gives me another few bays, lol.

    Another update to this. The server has been running great but I've decided to make some changes:

    I purchased a 256GB SM951 NVMe drive to use as the OS drive - should be pretty peppy.

    I also purchased a e5-2683 V3 to put in place of the E5-2630 V4. I know it's a gen behind and will run hotter, but there are tricks to get V3 xeons to run at a higher clock speed (the 2683 can run at 3ghz on all 14 cores...). I'm stoked to try it out, not that I need the extra processing power, but it'll help with decoding 4k videos even faster...
