    Need a dedicated server--E3-1230v3 or better, 32GB RAM or better

    Hello,

    I'm looking for a dedicated server. I've got my eye on this one

    But I just want to check if I can do better, or do the same cheaper. Requirements:

    • single threaded performance must be no less than the E3-1230v3's.
    • At least 4 cores/8 logical cores.
    • Must have at least 32GB of RAM.
    • Must be located in US or Canada. (Dallas would be great, but is not a requirement)

    Thanks all.

    • Kiowa said: single threaded performance must score 2000+ according to cpubenchmark (most v3 processors will do this)

      CPUBENCHMARK is USELESS you should be using geekbench or something like that.

      Working Windows Server 2012 R2 on 6GB! Beat that!

      Thanks for the heads up.

    • Would Atlanta work?

      Do you need a 240GB SSD on there?

    • Atlanta would work. the 240gb SSD is not necessary though the storage shouldn't be too tiny.

    • Would 120GB SSD work?

    • Yep, 120 would work. Or a spinning disk.

    • Ok so $79 - E3-1230v3, 32GB RAM, 120GB SSD or 1TB HDD (your choice).

      No setup, available from stock

    • @qps has E3-1270's

      I do like this offer, however... Would you be able to match the QPS offering mentioned? (I wasn't really expecting to be able to get an E3-1270v3 near this price point but if it can be done for a few more $ per month, that is within my budget.)

      This would be a very nice offer, but I don't see it on your website. Would this be a custom arrangement?

    • We don't have any E3-1270v3's left, we are clearing all the old v3 stock now to make way for the more modern E3's.

      QP has an even cheaper 1270v1 I believe.

      Ok, I'll be in touch depending on other offers. Thanks much.

      The 1270v1's performance is lower than the 1230v3--so I'm not really interested in a v1 processor.

      Kiowa said: This would be a very nice offer, but I don't see it on your website. Would this be a custom arrangement?

      Yes. Normally, the system comes with 2x 1TB drives for $149.99, but we have a $50 off coupon (50OFFXEON) that we are running on this system bringing the price to $99.99 per month. If you order it with 2x 1TB drives, open a sales ticket and link to this thread and we'll change the drive configuration to a single 256GB SSD for the same price.

      PetaByet said: QP has an even cheaper 1270v1 I believe.

      The E3-1270v1 configuration is only available in Los Angeles. It has 16GB RAM and 1TB hard drive for $69.99 per month.

      Thanks.

    • I have some E3-1230v3 available in Fremont, CA

      Now works for a public institution. Opinions expressed here are mine and mine alone.

    • Decided to try out QPS. They had the server provisioned in less than two hours (!) and I'm well on my way to installing the OS through IPMI. Thumbs up so far.

      Congrats! Installing the OS on a fresh bought server is a great feeling. @Kiowa

    • I wish I need a dedicated server so I can get these amazing offers..

      2) Pirateshosting.net
      They offer a wide range of dedicated servers to choose from. Compare them and choose the best for your specific needs.

      @Jarland you know what to do :)
