Having used solidseovps servers for a few months, which are awesome and only have good things to say about them, however, I wanted more. I was always causing SER to 'not repsond' and freeze and it was driving me insane (ended up creating projects on my laptop, backing them up and restoring them on my VPS).
So, after chatting to a mate that has a very quick dual-quad-core dedi and gets great speeds and only his RAM is the problem at the moment for him, I bought this:
But.......it's still not that good. It struggles with anything more than 350 threads. I have 60 proxies (40 semi, 20 private). Run Captcha Sniper (will buy CB soon). I have checked on speedtest.net and it's getting 70MBps so I've asked them to sort it out. I did originally want AMD FX-8350 4.0GHz (4.2GHz Turbo), 8 cores but they had none in stock and 'upgraded' them to the one I have for no additional cost....even though I feel the one I wanted is better (can any computer boffins confirm as this isn't my forte at all). In terms of LPM I managed 50LPM yesterday but then had Out of Memory notices this morning and it barely reaches 10 LPM now. I know LPM isn't the be all and end all, but just for reference. One Group of projects had 70k links submitted across all of yesterday which is pretty good but the rest of the Groups are a bit lame. In total there are 450 projects but not all are active yet. I'm not using site lists (yet). It runs at 99% of CPU at all times, RAM is 1GB (used to push the SolidSEO to 3 of 4GB RAM).
I can still only run 60 projects at one time, same as solidseovps Wizard VPS, any more and it crashes, which is not what I expected from something that is meant to be a lot quicker and costs 1.5 times more than the Solid VPS. If it's still crap then I will go with the company my friend has his dedi with, but it's twice the price of this one I have.....
