Thinking of building a home lab..

Right my fellow RHR brothers,

I'm actually thinking of dropping 1-2k in a home lab..

The reason?

I love Virtualization, design, lab, break, destroy..

Will need this to also pass certifications such as CCIE, SRA, Juniper..RedHat…

You guys get the picture...

I need your help in order to get this going, I have no idea what I'm looking for since I haven't build a desktop/server in a very long time..

Only requirement would be, needs to be rackable, and as silent as possible..(YMMV, when I'll be running 32 VM'S) we'll see how silent it is haha...

LE: I was looking at SuperMicro products, not bad..

I may have some systems that work for your needs I was going to reach out to coolit to see about getting these systems water cooled so they would be silent.
