Wanted to share this possible farming rig with you guys and see what you think.
You can build it yourself for about $600 (Core i5 processor) or $700 (Core i7 processor).
The specs I thought would be good are the following:
- 2TB HDD
- 256 GB SSD
- 8 GB RAM
Intel NUC Kit NUC5i5RYH with Core i5 5th gen processor
- Intel NUC Kit NUC5i7RYH with Core i7 5th gen processor
For the Operating System, I thought running Linux Mint would work well and is free.
People recommend installing the operating system on the Solid State Drive and using the Hard Drive for storage. Would this work OK with the Maidsafe client? Or does the OS, vault, and Maidsafe client have to be all installed on the same drive?
What do you guys think about specs and OS? Will Maidsafe support Linux? i5 processor or i7 processor? Do you think a fan would be needed for distributed computing down the road?
