  • I've had WHS installed on my KPC for about 3 months now, have not had ONE issue with the hardware or software.


    I got

    1gb 667 DDR2 kingston value ram

    Intel Celeron 420 1.6 Ghz 35w

    Two WD 500gb HDD's, one is their 5400-7200 green drives



    Works perfect, quite, fast and very little power is used.


    I did buy a 92mm vantec fan for the back, the loudest fan is still probably the PSU.
