Will Xeon 2.1GHz Server System work for Chia MadMax Plotting?

I am trying to find a 128GB RAM for Madmax T2 RAM DRIVE.
Got one server system as below. Is the 2.1GHz okay? Please advice.

Yes it will work. Its not the most value/bang for buck. But it works. A r7 3700x or i7-10700 or higher/newer cpu system will shame it for less $.

Or older xeons systems with say 10+ cores.

Edit: missed that it said dual cpus. So convert shame to match and probably higher core cpus needed to beat. But 2.1ghz is slow clock.

tmp1 is 2x128gb old ssd, tmp2 is 110g ram

I got this potato for ~1000$ since ~2014-2015 and didn’t have much chance to use it since then.
It can do ~24 plots/day and i don’t have a good way to move the plot to the farming machine :frowning:

(well it may or may not do it faster because i only use 16 thread … run at 20 or 24 threads and the computer will turn off. CPU temps are fine, installed fan on chipset heatsink, don’t know what wrong with it)

Thanks! Madmax will automatically copy the plot to N/w Shared HDD - right?
Why it is an issue moving to farming machine?

It just not fast enough … took ~900s to move the plot into the network shared hdd, and a lot longer if another machine is copying too … ( i have several old i5 / 4x250gb hdd raid 0 doing 6~8 plots/day)
