Fileserver has been used for home media storage and general photo / document backup. Has worked without problems but am selling because I have swtiched to an all Mac setup now.
Price - $800 + shipping takes it all including SCSI drives, or will take offers for consideration but will ebay if too low.
Areca 1120 RAID-6 card
Supermicro Hotswap SATA 5 drive cage
CM Stacker Case
Seasonic S12-600 power supply (the best out there)
The motherboard is a supermicro server board running 2 Xeon processors, I think 1.7ghz if I recall. 1 GB Ram . It's not a speed machine, it's a file server. Supermicro board has built in SCSI and I have several SCSI drives including 15K Seagates and some other 10K drives that I would throw in for free if someone bought the whole server. All drives would be reformatted - no OS would be included though it has been running windows XP. It has an ATI video card, not sure which one, rarely had the monitor turned on.
The areca card is top notch - it has 8 slots and I ran 5 drives with raid-6 but it will do most other raid configurations as you desire.
I may consider selling the drive cage and Areca card separately if nobody is willing to buy the whole server, but I may ebay it before I split it up. This site has the most folks who might appreciate this gear, so I thought I'd list it here first. I'm a long time member and have a 50+ feedback on Ebay with no negatives so contact me via reply if interested.
Please note I am -NOT- including SATA drives in the supermicro cage - I used all of mine in my new Mac setup. I WILL include the various scsi drives I have (15K x 2 36gig I think and 2 10K drives (size?) if the whole thing is purchased.
here are some pictures of the actual machine:
