Prototype Sandy Bridge Server

Incorporating an i5-2400, 8GB 1333MHz DDR3, 64GB SLC SSD on an industrial Fujitsu D3076-S1 mainboard produced a 2U rack mount server with some serious horsepower.

With this server we paired a 3100MHz quad core CPU with an industrial grade SLC SSD which lead to a blazingly fast user experience, booting to Windows 7 desktop in around 15 seconds and loading applications in a flash. Of course, an industrial grade server has a lot more potential than booting into an OS, we selected this CPU in our build to provide outstanding performance in single and multi-threaded applications especially when the maximum Turbo Boost speed of 3.4GHz is utilized.

  • The real potential comes from the D3076-S1 Fujistu mother board:
  • ·         LGA 1155 Supporting Sandy Bridge i7 CPU
  • ·         2xSATAIII, 4xSATAII
  • ·         2xPCIe x16 Slots (Running at x16 and x4), 1xPCIe x8
  • ·         4 PCI Slots
  • ·         12xUSB 2.0
  • ·         8bit GPIO
  • ·         Dual Gigabit LAN

 With the expansion this mainboard has to offer, the components we used in this prototype are definitely something to build upon. As a guide to the systems capabilities PassMark Performance Test 8.0 was ran on the system.

The combination of raw power with an industrial roadmap makes this board a perfect option for power users who need real reliability for their application.
