Test System Setup

We would like to thank Lenovo, SPEC, Yokogawa, and AIDA64 for their support in providing parts for our test system.

 

We used default BIOS settings for all tests that we performed.

This is the CPUz screen that shows various stats of the Xeon E5-2620 CPUs. As you can see, this CPU has a max TDP of 85 watts. Each CPU has six cores, and we will be running a dual CPU system. This gives it 12 cores/24 threads total. The E5-2620 v3s are low power processors that run at 2.4GHz, and will turbo up to 3.2GHz.

The E5-2620 v3s are labeled as Comms/Storage straight-adopt server SKU, and have support for a long life under server usage conditions. These are actually perfect CPUs to use for a server of this type. However, they are not monster number crunchers, which we will see in our upcoming benchmarks, but they do have the ability to handle storage solutions very well.

In our tests, we will be using the new Crucial DDR4 memory, which has a speed of 2133 MHz and a rating of CL15. We will use eight 16GB sticks, and that will bring us to 128GB of RAM.

 

We have already taken a look at these memory kits, and you can find our review here: Crucial DDR4-2133 DRx4 RDIMM Memory Review - Testing up to 256GB.
