    What type of server do you use? And how many online users do you have normally?

    On one forum... Dual Xeon L5520 with 36GB RAM, 2 SATA 1TB HD's in RAID 1 (software) - average online users 2 registered and anywhere from 5-15 guests/robots.
    The other two are based on a Dual Xeon L5639 with now 36GB RAM and same HD setup - average on one forum 1 registered user and 10 or less guests/robots and the other forum 1 user and 16-20 guests/robots.

    Those are just the XenForo forums running on them. The L5639 also has 4 myBB forums running there also.

    The fun stuff is the 4U with the 48 blue lights (each light is a hard drive). In that 4U, there are 8 servers, each server has 256GB RAM, E5-2680 x2 (8 physical cores per CPU), Seagate Savvio 10.6K hard drives (900GB each) x6, with everything interconnected via 56Gbit Infiniband.

    So yeah... as a grand total, 4U contains: 128 physical CPU cores (256 threads), 2TB RAM, 43.2TB storage space. Pretty nutty how dense you can get stuff these days. Lots of fun nerdy stuff.

    The chassis I use are the Super Micro SuperServer 2027TR-H71RF+: http://www.supermicro.com/products/system/2U/2027/SYS-2027TR-H71RF_.cfm

    I would, but then you would have to buy an InfiniBand switch and they aren't cheap (I only have 1, so I can't send you one).
