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.
