Thanks first of all for the valueable info.
I am planning to setup home lab for running multiple VMs (Linux), especially Oracle RAC 3 node, with host as win 7 64bit prof.
Going through this thread, I planned to use proc - AMD FX8210, mbo - ASROCK 990FX Extreme 4 , RAM - 8GB (future expansion) , HDD 1TB.
Do I need separate cooling for this proc?
Is 400W power supply sufficient or do I need 600W?
what cabin do I need for this setup (lots available and got confused)
