    Review: i7-4790 vs E3-1270v3 Fastest per-core Performance

    But integrated graphics really isn't all that important for a headless server.

    Server hardware discussion. Any server Owner Must Read !

    @systemv very good points. However, let's make sure people understand you have one of the fastest per-core CPUs on the market. I would hope you have a lot of idle/sleep time. People underestimate how important disk IO and networking are for smooth operation. What was your quote? Reliablesite...

    Review: i7-4790 vs E3-1270v3 Fastest per-core Performance

    I've heard reports the 4770k (any O/C'd CPUs) do fail at higher rates than Xeon's. However, ReliableSite has stated that over the many, many months (years?) they've been deploying these they have't seen any noticeable differences in failure rates. Which, to me, is quite surprising!

    Review: i7-4790 vs E3-1270v3 Fastest per-core Performance

    Normally I agree with you. However, ReliableSite has been deploying i5/i7 processors using enterprise-grade hardware (Supermicro motherboards, etc etc) and hasn't found a difference in failure rates and they have literally 100's of these deployed. I think you start to see a difference when you...

    Review: i7-4790 vs E3-1270v3 Fastest per-core Performance

    Yeah, I really wonder about this it was a neat incidental finding. I think this changes dramatically the more mods you're running and how active your players are (and how few restrictions you have). I'd probably agree more with your number to be on the safe side. Where did this guy say that?

    Most of the world is single-threaded. I've just written something up on the brand-new i7-4790 which is cheaper than the previously fastest E3-1270v3 here. My players ended up having to make a TON of open block tanks and looping computercraft scripts before it even started to make a dent in the...

    You can always profile the GC to see how it's handling. These are my recommended arguments.

    JVM Arguments for Modded Minecraft (Updated 12/30/13)

    @Eyamaz - I just went through these arguments with a fine toothed comb and I'm quite curious how you arrived at these values. It seems to me a lot of this could be system specific and mod specific. Specifically in regards to the server arguments. I tried these without actually understanding a...

    JVM Arguments for Modded Minecraft (Updated 12/30/13)

    For the server arguments my CPU usage went up like crazy with these arguments. My heap stays small, around 2G, despite having 8G being allocated. I have the following: E3-1230v3 16GB memory 120GB SSD Debian 7 wheezy Java 7u51 (Oracle JDK)
