Update – It is all gone, thanks to all for jumping on it, will keep you updated on my trials and tribulations when walking down the Pi Cluster route. 

It has been a trusty home lab for the past few years but since moving to the new house although it has prime position in the garage it is not being used as I have other resources available to me now. Maybe there is a home for it somewhere. This post will outline the hardware specs for each part I will be parting with.

What do I want and this is me being completely honest, I want this to help someone that needs it or wants it for education, All I would really like is to be able to buy 4 new Raspberry Pi’s. That’s it.

I also have a selection of disks that were in the SuperMicro boxes I am just going to list them here as well

2 x Hitachi 1TB SATA drives 7200rpm

If anyone is interested and lives in the UK I don’t think its worth shipping out of the UK for this, hit me up on twitter @MichaelCade1 or drop me a mail at Michael.Cade@outlook.com if you need anymore detail let me know, share far and wide as it would be good to clear some space.

Thanks,
