NEW 32GB Micron 2RX4 PC4 19200 DDR4 2400T Server Memory Ram MTA36ASF4G72PZ-2G3B1

Scratch page for my notes on a new computer I am looking to build. Most info will probably be obsolete by the time I get around to it.

  • Motherboard: Asus Z10PE-D16 WS $530
  • CPUs: Intel Xeon E5-2630 v3 2.4 GHz 8 Core Processor x2 $1266
  • RAM: 64gb kit 16x 4 = $817

Big 3 = 2613

Better try and cut that down slightly.

Modified price-point:

  • Mobo: 470
  • CPUs: 614
  • RAM: 400

Drops the price to 1500ish.


I like the one I've chosen and it's dropped $100 in price. May even be worth looking to grab a used one as I've had good luck with that.


Re-thinking my commitment to 8 cores. I *THING* I might benifit more from using 4-core 3.5ghz CPUs than 8-core 2.4s. My total number of cores remains the same - but I gain some serious gigi-hertz.


I do not want to spend $800 on RAM.


Internet recommends Samsung m.2.

Found that one I like but will likely be sold out. Not going to make any snap decisions.

Will need adapter like this:

Spinning Disks

Case should have room for existing 1tb drive and will use spare 4tb drive for whatever. Want to have one of those bays to yank the disks in and out.

Optical Drive

I think I will pull out one of my external drives and just set it up permanently on the side. I no longer need a built-in drive.
