Trying to Build a machine for 100Mbit/sec VPN
~100Mbit/sec VPN performance
Small enclosure (read low heat)
Prefer IPMI 2.0 interface
Lowest power usage while meeting above requirements, so I do not expect sub 20W idle however would like to get under 50W idle
I currently am looking at this setup:
Motherboard: SuperMicro MDB-X9SCM-F-O
CPU: Intel G630T (35W)
Memory: 2x4GB ECC unbuffered (motherboard requires ECC) - Yes 8GB is probably overkill but it is so cheap, I guess less memory would reduce my power requirements some.
Drive: OCZ Onyx Series 32GB SSD - Rated at 1W Active and 375mW idle
Case: SuperMicro CSE-510-200B
Also are there any issues with the onboard NICs with FreeBSD still? I noticed searching here that there was some concern but those posts are pretty old now.
It has been reported that the 82579LM is supported by the x64 build of 2.0.1.
Did you suceed with your install ?
