O/S HDD - Got stuck here, usually have RAID for data servers but this one will be purely for game renting, I was thinking a smaller SSD hard disk drive for the O/S?
SERVER HDD - and a Larger SSD hard disk drive for the game server files?
My limitations are the 2U case at it will be going into a 2U colocation rack.
The server will only be used for renting for dedicated gaming servers. TF2, BF3, Natural Selection 2: This will be the main game to be run from it, it's a bit of a beast at chewing servers up and currently stats showing that the i5 2500k is the best type of server for this game, and I don't need ECC.
I will be trying to overclock, but not sure how that will go yet, depending on location in rackmount, power usage, etc...
Hard drives I was either thinking the above I have written or just RAIDing some SATA 7200rpm HDDs, it doesn't need huge amounts of space, it will not be for holding data.
Thank you for taking the time to read my thread.
Any advice would be much appreciated.
