Replacement vor APU1



  • Hello,
    i have a small network rack case which has no fans inside and is only about 30 cm deep.
    My APT is getting very hot and I want to switch to a hardware which has active fans inside.

    I really would like to have such a nice small supermicro rack case which is smaller than the 28 cm depth.
    It should suck less power as possible and should have at least 3 NICs. It's for personal use only with a 16 mbit down line. Maybe in future 50.
    Any suggestions?
    Atom or anything like that?
    Thanks a lot.

    From where you are? USA, UK, FR, DE, CA or AUS?

    Here is a PC Engines APU2c4 board that will fit inside of that case and plays nice together with this
    spare parts too! It is able to route your 50 MBit/s and for sure up to 550 MBit/s or more likes 650 -
    750 MBit/s pending on the Internet connection art and wise likes PPPoE or static IP over FTTH/FTTC.

  • Hi Frank,

    I live in DE.
    Thanks for the hint with the rack enclosure.
    Seems to be a reasonable alternatives to buying a new server.
    The APU2 might be the next step.
    I hope my apu sticks not to much on the standard enclosure..
