Building a home server part 1

I recently decided to build my own Ubuntu home server with the following requirements:

  • Low energy consumptionUbuntu server
  • Small
  • Noiseless

A friend of mine recommended the Asus EEE Box. However, this machine was released a year ago and the price didn’t drop much. And besides, Intel recently released the new Atom generation. Therefore I decided to build my own machine with the following components:

Asus AT5NM10-I

Antec ISK 300-65

All these components together cost less than an EEE Box. Reviews of the Antec ISK 300-65 can be found here, here and here. In part 2 I will describe unpacking and assemblage.

  1. Hi, how did you install Ubuntu? Through tmp CD drive, flop, or…? I have the same components and want to build my server with flash disk and optional usb mass storage.
