What I'm looking for is a suitable replacement with the following

- 4 SATA disk slots.
- I don't care whenever it's a box or a rack mount.

The GnuBee PC-1 is already available

The GnuBee PC-2 is being crowd-funded now (until 2017-11-30)

Both meet your criteria I believe, as well as being open hardware
designs and have only free software requirements.

Buy the former if you want one now. Fund the latter if you want 3.5-inch
drives.

Terrific, thanks.

I'll wait for 3.5'' one, maybe pledge something.

I recently upgraded one of my boxes after a mother board failure. I did a fair amount of research and came up with the following:
	MSI1970A-G43 motherboard (very reasonably priced)
	AMD Athlon FX4350 4 core CPU
It's fast and handles Debian very well. I don't remember how much I paid, but it was reasonable. I also had to add an above board, cheep, graphics card ($45). While not too expensive, this is a gamers board and can be overclocked. There are 6 Sata slots and room for 16Gb memory. Has a nice BIOS screen. They have dropped IDE connectors. So if you have IDE drives you will need IDE to Sata adapters.

Hope this helps
