  • HP DL140 G3 Power Usage

    Any idea if an HP DL140 G3 will be within 0.5 amps?

    Dual Xeon 5150
    8GB RAM
    500GB HDD
    60GB SSD
    DVD ROM

    Thanks.

      Ah right, what about a Dell R200?

      Trying to find a server that will stick within 0.5A.

        R200 will more than likely run at less than 0.5a.

          Right, that's good.

          I think the R200 is more power efficient too.

            What did your last R200 run at? You know the one you colo'ed and then spent the entire time trying to sell with the contract in place?

              It was the version 2 and it was under 0.5a.

                Take a look at Optimizing data center power requirements | Dell for power usage on Dell kit. It's normally quite accurate.

                R200 can go anywhere from just under 0.5A to about 0.8A depending on spec. The R210 are much better - we have several at between 0.2A and 0.3A under load.

                  The R200 has an older CPU, an E3110.

                  I'm hoping it will be 0.5A and under. I know Dell's are pretty good when it comes to power consumption.

                    The Dell DCCP reckons that an R200 with E3110, 4x2GB sticks of RAM, 2xSATA hard drives and 1x PCI card will draw 0.47A when idle and up to 0.8A when under load. I'd be very surprised if you'd get that on a 0.5A co-location deal.

                    The best thing to do is go to Maplin, pick up a £5 power meter and measure real world usage.

                      I'd probably only have 1 HDD in there.

                      It wouldn't really ever be "under load". Only Minecraft at the worst of times!

                      Thanks.

                        It would probably be a lot cheaper to get a VPS.

                            Then it'll be 'under load' whenever you're playing

                            Unless there is a very specific reason you need you own 'whole server', for minecraft just get a hosted MCFTServer for the player count and world-size you need, which also generally means you wont be in a long-term contract, which based on your history can only be A-Good-Thing (tm)

                              I have a DL140 G3 sat here and it draws 1.2A ~ 1.4A. Sell that 1U shelf for scrap.

                              Edit: That's it idle (no OS) plus it only has 1 CPU. Removing all of the RAM and disconnecting all fans it still runs at 1.2~1.4. BIN!
