ANP prepairs for main net with hardware for a 2nd dedicated server

I have been pondering this for quite a while and I have seen other pools gain competitiveness by having multiple pools with lower fees. I want to remain competitive and at the same time encourage decentralization with having bare metal servers in house. My plan now is to launch ANP and ANP2 with 2% fees for the main net if the pledge mechanism will allow for this to be competitive. The following hardware should be here in a week or so:

Ryzen 3900x (12 cores)
Gigabyte MB with support for ECC RAM
64GB of 2667 ECC RAM
Mellanox Connectx 4 Network card (I really love this card for its network performance vs price)
Fractal Cabinet (More air flow and less silent than my other server but if its too noisy I will switch to water cooling)

I have not decided yet if I will run both pools from main server and all extra nodes on the other or one pool on each of the servers but will test out models as we approach main net and during performance testing of haskel nodes.

MB is not as good as other server but i got a good deal for it and I have been using it on another computer at my home so I know it is solid and also it had the required ECC support needed for a server.

Mellanox ConnectX 4 a fantastic network card now I have one for each of the servers.

Fractal Design ION+ a 760 Platinum power supply (important for power effiency that keeps running costs down.)
