Happy Holidays! We end the year with a nice little PC build in the Corsair Carbide 200R. I was in need of a server for the new year and I didn’t need it to do a lot right from the start. I put together a build that’s very affordable for most and can be used as a starting point for almost any kind of PC setup you want. Now as for the things I didn’t say in the video below, this server is going to be pulling down,converting then sending up datafeeds from all over the world. This is being done for a site I just redesigned and will be launching next year.
Here’s all the benchmarks I ran on this system and the parts list. Maybe in a later video, I’ll throw Steam on and see what kind of FPS I get in some games. Let me know down the in the comments if that is something you would like to see. 🙂

- SSD: Crucial 275GB MX300 M.2 [link]
- HDD: Toshiba 1TB 7200RPM x2 [link]
Like I said, in the video, this is kinda like a bare bones build that can only get better. An updated CPU and GPU will make a world of a difference to all the benchmarks here. It will also make this system fully ready for video editing, 3d rendering, heavy office work and more. You can also update it slowly and still get a lot more performance such as ditching one of the 1TB hard drives and throwing in a GPU so you can do some 1080p gaming. You will experience bottlenecks due to the cheap cpu depending on what card you throw in. I will definitely be upgrading this little server later on.
