hey thanks for the reply. however i have the 4gb versions from another project and the 8gb versions are seemingly unattainable. so it looks like its back to the original plan of running 3 mac pro towers and one pi for cold storage.

Hey RJ,

I used the CoinCashew guide to teach myself how to setup a pool. Minimum recommended specs for a node in my opinion is 16GB RAM each and a 4 core 8 thread CPU with 240gb SSD. Dell optiplex 9020s with Ubuntu LTS are great for this at about $250 each on eBay. A Pi should work well as an air gapped machine, I use an old laptop flashed with LTS personally.

I’d you get stuck post here, there’s always somebody willing to help!
