Server parts? Not really. Although you can buy a lot of what you might need off of Scan.

Scan and Aria tend to be pretty good and well priced (check both, often one is significantly cheaper than the other)

For any consumer based stuff, you can spot good deals on HotUKDeals as well (works best if you're not looking for something specific)

OK, thank you I didn't find any reference to aria so far. Will definitely investigate that road.

Thanks for the tips.

Default Re: Computational machine

By browsing some forums, some reported that the RAM slowed down the CPU. It seems that the why is beyond my current knowledge.

I was wondering if in the part list below, things were incompatible or would be a bottleneck. I have tried to stick with options that assemblers offer. What do you think?

Thank you for your help,
Cdric

The selected RAM is 2133, the motherboard supports PC14900 which is only 1866MHz. It'll slow the RAM down but I'd have thought it would still work!

Even 1600 wouldn't bottleneck it so you're fine.

Idk about UK prices, but over here it makes more sense to get a single 1.2TB 750 rather than dual 400s.

Ah, sorry, I read this in the server description "quad PC4-14900L" and assumed that was maximum.

You're right, my bad
