I'm worried that I might somehow have been unclear(?!).

As people who've attended CABAL know, I already have piles of old,
hulking 2U and 1U rackmount servers, many of them with relatively modern

To repeat:  I'm intending to migrate from a huge noisy, power-sucking
rackmount server to something silent, small, power-thrifty, and highly
reliable with an expected problem-free service life through this decade.
Which means buying new, modern low-power parts.

I invited comments on the draft component selection.  So far:  crickets.
