I have googled for hours and looked through about 15 pages of threads (through various forums) and have not found enough info to answer these questions. I try to research first because I hate re asking a question so sorry if this is the 30th time this has been asked. There really needs to be a damn sticky.
I wanted to know what would be the better route for server hardware.
1650v3 OC to ~4.5 GHz or an OC Skylake build?
-If I went skylake I would probably buy a Skylake chip from someone that had exceptional OCing like 4.7+ GHz I wouldn't mind the premium and finding that wouldn't be that hard. Finding a 1650v3 that has oddly high quality would be exceptionally hard and too expensive.
I know this is largely single thread limited but does ECC for these servers matter?
Does the server need the extra cores?
Would the server be more stable with ECC? Stablility is a major factor for me.
I am wondering if ECC and 6 cores is more important for the server compared to getting 5-15% better single thread performance.
I have yet to find any documentation or graphing of high pop server loads so I have no idea what the requirements are for the CPU.
I would be using NVMe and 32 or 64GB of RAM in either build. I heard 32GB is more then enough but I am fine with getting more if needed. I'll be using 16GB sticks to allow room for growth. If I went with ECC I would be using 2133 but if ECC is pointless I'll specifically run the numbers to calculate what Mhz and CAS latency gets the lowest true latency for DDR4.
What are the pros and cons of windows vs linux?
Also I have yet to see much info on the BW requirements
I have yet to find any documentation or graphing of high pop server loads so I have no idea what the requirements are for BW and packets.
What is needed for a full 100 person server?
What quanity of people can be hosted on 20+ Mbps upload
I have noticed and seen the issues of high queued crafted items with the stalling. What can be done to combat this? Better router to handle the large requests? Any recommendations?
FYI I also have this posted in Steam forums. Figured this would be a better place since the forums is spammed with adshttp://steamcommunity.com/app/346110/di ... 063090193/
