I run my 12 CPU 4500 regularly. I was using it 24x7 as a home server until I figured out how much it costs in power to run, but I still fire it up frequently. I'd say it's on 1/4 of the time. I plan on working out a way to run it full time again though - if I can save money elsewhere, I can afford to pay the power bill for it to run full time again.

I'm still trying to track down another 2 gig RAM kit for it, so I can max out the RAM. I've only got 12 CPUs in there, since I don't have another working CPU board, and I also need that slot to run the PCI I/O module to talk to the fibre channel arrays. I have three A5000's loaded up with 147gig drives. I'd love to find some A5200 arrays, since those hold 22 drives (mine hold 14). 

I've got the whole thing in a rack complete with monitor and a keyboard for the console. Hostname: thwomp
