EricThompson guessed correctly. It's a Supermicro 5018A-AR12L.

Total Storage 137.4 TB
Max single system storage 72.6 TB in 1U

Supermicro 5018A-AR12L (1U)
RAW capacity 72.6 TB (HDD/SSD combined)
Atom C2750 (8x 2.4GHz cores)
32GB ECC RAM
Onboard LSI 2116
12x 6TB Hitachi HDD
5x 120GB Intel 530 SSD (2x boot, 3x cache)
10Gb Myricom CX4 NIC
2012 R2 Storage spaces with 100GB write cache

Supermicro intended for 2x 2.5" drives with a mount that wasn't listed when I ordered this server. I adapted it to hold 5x 2.5" 7mm drives with a few zip ties. I wouldn't ship it like that but it holds fine between the workbench and rack.

Im finally getting to the point of setting up my Media Server.
I have an old Chenbro cube case I bought from a friend 8 years ago (used to use this as my desktop PC case). Game plan is to fill it with Icy Dock Fat Cages and set it up using 8 x 4Tb WD Red Pro drives in Raid 6 via LSI Megaraid 9260 and using some leftover PC parts from old builds (dual core cpu, 4Gb RAM, OCZ Vertex SSD for boot drive).

Hoping to buy the drives in the next month.
Pix for clix

Im debating buying one more Icy Dock so I can put 2 drives in each of the 3 available slots to help aid with cooling, plus it'll look badass :D

Thats a neat little piece, but I cant afford to go full SSD RAID at this point.
Hopefully once drives drop in price over the next 2-4 years I can switch over to SSD though.
FOr the time being Ill stick to good ole 7200rpm SATA hdds

A suggestion: create two RAID 5 arrays, each comprising of one drive from each dock, then stripe them. That way you'll be protected against the failure not only of a drive but also one Icy Dock.

I'll reserve a spot for my build as I'm currently moving everything around upgrading from my 39 TB server.
I should update my sig too.

Edit: Finally adding pictures

Box 2.0
AMD proc, Gigabyte Mobo
Areca 1880i
HP Sas Expander

14x 2TB Raid 6 = 24tb
7x 3TB Raid 6 = 15tb

Box 1.0 was running with 99.9% uptime (Ice storm last winter ruined 99.99%). I recently replaced the 4 year old AMD guts with new AMD guts. I use it as just a home file server nothing fancy.Normally a laser printer sits on top of the Norco case. But since replacing the guts and reformatting I couldn't get the drivers to work again on Windows Server 2008 R2. Lastly for those who can count, I do have 22 drives in the case. I have the OS SSD mounted where the internal DVD drive goes, and in next to it inside is the 21st 3TB drive, which does make hot swapping a chore.

Tower
I bought this server off a friend who had to move out of the country and was didn't want to bring it with him, or sell it off.

The guts are unknown, as are all the random pci sata cards and 500w psu. It also has Sans Digital 4 hd enclosures. It's running Unraid 6 b12, with a whole bunch of mix and mash drives:
1x 500GB (WD 5000AALS Black Edition, Cache drive)
2x 4TB (WD40EZRX, 1 is Parity drive)
3x 3TB (WD30EZRX)
15x (13x WD20EARS, 2x WD20EADS)
1x 1.5TB (Seagate ST31500341AS)

44.5TB array, with 500GB cache.

The plan is to combine both of these, I still don't know if I'm going to keep the H/W raid or software raid. They each have their +/-'s and I've got way more storage then I need :p

Finally got around to updating my original post.

wicked nice setup, I have the same case sans the sata backplate, did you get them somewhere for a good deal?

Everywhere I found they cost an arm and a leg.

This is where I get mine from. Not horribly expensive and they have a great range.

I prefer to use molex on the other end of he cable as its a bit more hard wearing than sata (they break a bit of you swash the end in behind a case panel. )

I swapped the end to Sata and have been kicking myself ever since. One day i'll swap them back.

24x2TB SAS in each 4U connected to an LSI2308 HBA. Pair of SSDs in each chassis, too. ESXi 6 with the controller passed through to CentOS 7 with ZFS on Linux. It's basically the same setup I had before, only now it's finally rack mounted. It pulls 750W on boot, then settles down to about 260W. With both of them running, it's 60dBA @ 3'.

A warning for anyone who uses the Supermicro SC846 chassis - The rails that come with it will not allow you to pull the chassis out far enough to remove the lid. To get rails that work right, you need to buy the ones that come with the SC826 or SC836. Supermicro is aware of the issue, and has no intention of resolving it.

A warning for anyone who uses the Supermicro SC846 chassis - The rails that come with it will not allow you to pull the chassis out far enough to remove the lid. To get rails that work right, you need to buy the ones that come with the SC826 or SC836. Supermicro is aware of the issue, and has no intention of resolving it.

I noticed that after getting my two SC846's installed. I'm thankful for tool-less blanking panels.

TeeJayHoward: wondering about the flat ethernet cables? I've always been weary of them because of the lack of twist. Is there a reason you chose them and have you had any trouble? Also, what chassis is the top server in? I don't recognize it with the vertical drives.

They are twisted, just side by side instead of blocked in a square.

The flat ethernet cables were just a "Huh, haven't seen those before. Let's give 'em a shot" purchase. They're working out pretty well. Can't say I prefer one way or another.

The "top server" is actually eight servers in one 3U chassis. It's a Supermicro MicroCloud. 8xE3v3s, each with two 3.5" bays.

Q, that looks fantastic. I love the Ikea tables, and what are you using to run your ethernet cables through? That looks pretty brilliant :D

Thank you. These are just standard cable guides you can buy at your local shop (not sure how these stores are called in English). You just have to cut them at length and used double-sided adhesive tape to stick them to the table. I used the same stuff to get rid of cables to/from electronic equipment in my living room.

Nice and clean setup. The only thing that would bother me is the Lack-Racks. While they are neat, weight capacity is not their best point.
With the weight of the servers above the bottom one, a bump would likely see it topple. In the past, I have seen right-angle steel or aluminium placed around the legs to help stiffen them up.

Mind you, a rack is the next step maybe.

Since there is a new thread I might as well redo it.

yes it has more drives now.

I have 40 x 2TB + 10 x 4TB in a single ZFS pool. Usable space is 108.8 TiB.

System consists of 3 Supermicro 846 chassis.

Main chassis:

Supermicro X10SRL-F LGA 2011R3 motherboard
Intel Zeon E5-1620 v3 Haswell CPU
22 x Samsung 16GB DDR4 2133 ECC RAM
2 x LSI SAS9200-8e HBA
1 x LSI SAS9211-8i HBA

846main.JPG


Disk only chassis:

This has the brand new Supermicro power controller with IPMI ethernet and 10 or so 4-pin fan connectors. Also monitors power consumption.

846diskonly.JPG


Disk / HTPC chassis:

The 3rd chassis is much like the 2nd chassis in that it is connected to a dedicated LSI controller in the main server. But instead of a power controller I run a little Asus Haswell mobo which runs my HT projector in the next room, and well as hosting my JRiver music library and connects to my pre-amp via HDMI for whole house sound. I of course have to be careful not to ever shut this chassis down without taking down the main FreeNAS server first!

My basement was unfinished when I moved in, so when I finished it, I basically built that particular wall around the racks.

Here's a view from the back side.

Thank you. What you've got is essentially my long term plan for when I own a house (several years from now). Very, very nice.

Freakin' sweet! Bet it's pretty warm in that room back there.
What's the receptacle with the orange wire? 240?

And show us what the Crown's and the rest of the gear are powering! Maybe post in the mancave thread (maybe you already have)?

With just the computer gear running it doesn't get too hot, but when the power amps are running, it can get pretty toasty.

There are actually 2 receptacles with orange wires. They are 120V 30A outlets (each wired to a dedicated 30A breaker). They used to each feed a APC 3KW SmartUPS. Those have both been retired (but are still sitting in the bottom of the rack) and now I just run a single APC2.2KW SMARTUPS LCD UPS that is plugged into one of those 30A outlets.

On the wall you can also 3 quad outlets behind the Supermicro 846 cases. Each has a dedicated 20A breaker. Despite that, I have still managed to trip a breaker on several occasions when playing bass heavy music. :D

I'll post what the amps power in the mancave thread, but provide a couple of teaser pics here. These are TC Sounds PA-5000 18" subs, btw. :D
