Which is better for my file server?i only have 2 hard drives i optical disk drive,and mobo and processor.
Processor: i3-2120(disabled HT)
Mobo:Biostar H61MGV(upgrading to biostar TZ68K+ soon and underclock i3 to x16 clock multiplier only(1596Mhz) but will enable HT after the underclock,no undervolting will be made.using hd 2000.I want the mobo as it has more heat sinks and it can overclock(underclock here).i need stability,and if i can save some power.Performance wise i am not compressing files so yeah.I hope to make a passive heat sink config for the processor too,maybe a coolermaster hyper 101 with fan removed.if not possible i will just use the hyper101 with the fan.i cannot fit a 212 into budget.)
Hard drives:Seagate Barrucuda 500gb
Toshiba DT01ACA300 3tb
Dont ask me to get ssd as it will become an extra device mean more power used.i will not 'decommission' the hard drives so yeah.(coz i can only afford 120gb ssd which cannot store a thing.
No raid,coz i manually copy important files on both drives.
8 gb 1333 mhz adata ram,going to underclock it to 1066mhz.it has no heatsinks.
Thanks in advance
Low power system ( 100 watts or so max ) and you're talking about under-volting to decrease power consumption
You'll want a lower wattage psu than you can find in either line
300 watts is overkillhttp://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817151086
