AMD Opteron 875

We still had a dual-core Opteron 875 in our shelves and decided to use this one for this project. Since we used a RAID controller with an on-board XOR unit, such a powerful processor would not have been necessary. However, we decided to avoid any possibility of creating a bottleneck.
