Modest Whitebox lab

Badge +4
My lab is pretty low-key: a whitebox AMD in a.gifted case.
  • AMD FX-8350 on a Sabertooth 990FX
  • 16GB RAM
  • 2x 4GB HGST drives + 240GB SSD
The SSD is totally worth it - Server 2012 setup went from almost an hour to about 15 minutes!
ESXi 5.5 runs Server 2012 R2, Kali, and any other flavors of Linux I happen to hear about and try out.
My build notes are in my (hardly ever updated) blog here:

Cheers to a fellow AMD user! If you ever plan on adding vCenter and mixing with Opterons, the EVC mode you'll be looking for is AMD Generation 3 (no 3DNow).
