The last week
We had a couple of warm days (it got up to 30 degrees C) where only the Raspberry Pis were running. It is only the start of spring. I have since got the CPU only machines going on Rosetta work.

New additions
I have ordered parts for two new machines, some of which have already arrived. One will be a replacement for the proxy server and the other is intended to be used as a HT Condor submit node.

Proxy server
Case Fractal Design Node 1100 (from old one)
PSU Seasonic (from old one)
Motherboard Asus B550M-K
CPU Ryzen 3300X
Cooler Noctua NH U9S
Memory HyperX Predator DDR4-3200 2 x 8GB (spare)
Network 2.5GbE NIC (spare) 
Storage 512GB Samsung 970Pro (from old one)

Submit node
Case Fractal Design Meshify C
PSU Seasonic G series 360w (spare)
Motherboard Asus X570-P/CSM
CPU Ryzen 3600 (spare)
Cooler Noctua NH U9S
Memory Kingston DDR4-2400 ECC 2 x 16GB
Network 10GbE Asus XG-C100C (spare)
Storage 512GB Samsung 970Pro and 2 x 8TB Toshiba X300 HDD (spare)

The ECC memory seems to be stuck at the courier depot. They say they attempted to deliver yesterday, but with 3 people at home none of us heard anything. They usually leave a card in the letterbox but didn't this time so I suspect they didn't even try.

As you can see I have reused parts where possible to keep the cost down. I might get a Meshify C Mini case for the proxy server rather than reusing the old case. I have 3 Toshiba X300 drives as spares but the case only has two 3.5" HDD bays.

Update: 10 Sep 2020
The ECC memory turned up the following day without me having to do anything. The other parts have arrived. I forgot the X570-P motherboard so had to place another order for it and the Meshify C Mini case. I am now waiting on them to arrive.
