    Planning to host mainly XenForo and some PHP Scripts.

    Specs #1:
    • Intel Xeon E3 1240 V6
    • 4 x 3.70 GHz
    • 64GB DDR4
    • 1TB SSD
    • $99/mo

    Specs #2:
    • Intel Core i9 9900K
    • 8 x 3.60 GHz
    • 64GB DDR4
    • 1TB NVMe SSD
    • $149/mo
    Price isn't big deal.
    Only downside for the i9, it is a Desktop CPU but having an advantage of NVMe.

    This is from Reliablesite LA by the way, as it's hard looking for Singapore Dedicated Server except OVH.

    Nginx 1.17.x
    MariaDB 5.5/10.x
    i9 9900K won't have ECC memory like Intel Xeons would ECC memory - Wikipedia

    if your data on server is important, you'd use ECC memory supported servers

    more reading
    opposite argument from stackexchaneg/discourse guy talking about whether ECC is really needed at To ECC or Not To ECC as he was willing to risk it but he also did do extensive memory testing before deployment.


    when i use to build my desktop computers (non-ECC memory), I'd be doing extensive memory testing which could run for days :D
