    Just for kicks, got it couple days ago. Thank you.

    Players? Plugins? TPS? Using multiple cores for different sections of a single server? What could I throw at this thing?

    You could easily host 300 players, are you planning to use BungeeCord? Are you just wanting spigot?

    You can happily run 10 servers on this. (6GB ram ish each)

    Just don't overload your server as your OS will need resources too. :)
     
  3. "Everything but the kitchen sink" can be chucked at that monster. You will have no problems running a LARGE network on that bad boy.
     
  4. Well yes and no - the CPU is kind of weak, it's has lower single thread than that of some of its lower-core counterparts. But if he wants to run a minigames network - hey, he's golden.
     
  5. You could host multiple minecraft servers with this. You could easily store a lot of plugins and host from 250-300 players without there being any TPS problems.
     
  6. True he would definitely need to put many servers in parallel but other than it will hum along just nicely.
