Some of you might probably notice, that yesterday, I wasn't here on forum as much as usually :)

Finally, yesterday, at about 14:00 localtime I got my hands on my new server :)
The only difference from that post was, i picked different PSU and Kingston ram 2x2GB

It took me few hours to assemble it [It's first time I completely assemble PC]

Then after 2-3 hours I insert FreeBSD AMD64 dvd. and boomer, it won't boot. Now after few hours of messing with bios configuration, and trying to boot from AMD64 dvd i decided to try i386. It worked.

Then I found out, that AMD64 dvd was damaged for some reason [It was fresh dvd], I burned another dvd with freebsd amd64 and vuala
It worked.

It seams that everything worked, even integrated sound card. I din't really tested sound, but if someone is interested in buying same motherboard, let me know, I will test it.

I Will post dmesg later :) Right now I have to study a bit for tomorrow.

Also with this motherboard there was 1 interesting problem. FreeBSD DVD {bough i386 and amd64} won't boot if sata is set in achi mode.

So right now I'm using 2 bios profiles, 1 if I want to boot from DVD {this one turns ACHI off} and one for usual usage {turns ACHI off}

While disk names changes {ad2 to ada1 for example} zfs works without problem :)

I"m very happy
It recompiled word with make -j 8 buildworld or -j 10 {don't remember} in 25m without ccache. And later In bios i found some features, that would improve this time :) Now they are turned on

Using /etc/src.conf might speed up the process a little. By the way, do you have any pictures ;)?

I will post pictures later {tomorrow I'll get camera} :)

EDIT:
When I dd from /dev/random to zfs
zpool showed speed up to 250M/s. Compare to my desktop PC with max 35-40M/s

I was just asking to myself.. "where are the pictures?", before I saw this post :p .

Congratulations :)

To prevent the name change issues, you can use glabel(8) (for block device, MBR slice, and filesystem labels) or gpart() (for GPT partition lables). Then just reference everything by the label. That way, it doesn't matter what the underlying driver does or what the device node is called.

Also makes it easy to move drives from controller to controller.

Haven't played with GPT yet, but I now label everything with glabel. Even for simple things like CompactFlash-based gmirrors.

Yes, I used to do that when I was using UFS
Works fine with gpt as well, in fact I label my flash with glabel :)

attached dmesg

Up until yesterday Server was extremely quiet {only 2 fans, 1 for PC, 1 for PSU}. Yesterday I added 2x 90x90mm fans.

Later I will create simple fan controller, and these fans will be turned on only when necessary. Current temp inside box is 25-30 Celsius

that dmesg was before I did some bios enhancing, and some SATA cable switching.... weird, well anyway it's ok now

Now each of drives is on it's master SATA :)

Interesting machine...

Could you run 'flops' and 'ubench' from

Code:
/usr/ports/benchmarks

I'm curious about the CPU performance.

I think you forgot to copy the last digit of Ubench AVG.
Here are some results of my HP DL320 G5 with a Xeon 3050 and
2GB of memory. I only did the 'flops' since I think 'ubench' is
behaving weird. It doesn't always seem to detect the right number of CPUs/cores.

Code:
FLOPS C Program (Double Precision), V2.0 18 Dec 1992

   Iterations      =  512000000
   NullTime (usec) =     0.0000
   MFLOPS(1)       =   568.6920
   MFLOPS(2)       =   597.3215
   MFLOPS(3)       =   953.5636
   MFLOPS(4)       =  1419.3555

This in fact only runs on one core. The second module tries to calculate 'pi' through iterations of Taylor series. All the other modules are numerical integrations. This is a good tool to see how fast those calculations are done. Lots of cache and very fast memory have limited effect on this test.
