Not sure your maths is working today.

£178.15 - £46 != £94.34.

Also their prices are ex. VAT.

Seconding that, product is £168.20 after VAT, 46 pounds off that is £122.20, then delivery is extra on top.

Or for £30ish more it's big brother better buy if you can live with its dimensions as it has more PCI slots.

looks like the £46 cashback is also without VAT - that becomes £55 off VAT price

So looks like £123.17 with delivery and cashback

If you want bigger than you would be much better off with the Xeon powered Dell T20 for a little more.

Don't! Because you if you upgrade, I will have to aswell!!

About £178 after VAT and delivery, so net £123? I also noticed that the cashback terms are purchase AND delivery by Oct 31st. I ordered (from eBuyer in the end, for the 6% Quidco cashback) yesterday (30th), and have just discovered that it's not being delivered until tomorrow (Nov 1st) - even though the page on eBuyer said "next day" delivery (with no qualifier for Sunday orders). Fingers crossed HP will be lenient when I submit the cashback form...

I dont like mine anymore its too noisy since i put 2x 3tb hard drives in it. got a graphics card and upgraded to 16gb ram and an i3 3240. far too loud nothing i can do about it. looking for a replacement like the dell t20 but really want a lenovo ts140 but they are loads of money. I wouldn't recommend one of these to anyone anymore too unpredictable with noise levels

I put an i3 3240 in mine last week. Night and day! Can I ask which ram you picked up? As I understand it it's a specific type that's needed so some advice from someone who's done it correctly would be appreciated.

you need to look for ram that is ecc it will need the E on the end like 12800e. if it has r its no good. look around on facebook forums i got 16gb for £20 6 months ago. my i3 3240 did make a massive difference. i bought a whole pc with the cpu and 1tb hard drive for £50 swapped the cpu with the g1610t and swapped the 1tb with a 500gb i had and sold on for £50 to get my money back there is an i5 cpu that is cheap that will use esxi properly cant remember model though

Must admit I've gone off these, they aren't the bargain the old models were and after you've kitted it out with drives, RAM etc. you might as well build something yourself.

so its worth it? I thought the i3 only gave a small performance improvement over the g1610t?

does it increase the speed of the fan and therefore noise?

I've not noticed an increase in noise, but then mine is in a cupboard.

The gen8 with the i3 already installed (and a 1TB drive) goes for about £500 here
http://www.ebuyer.com/748551

Here's the upgrade guide I used. Took me about 15-20 mins to do. In there the author says the i3 is 65% more powerful than the G1610T.

Sounds like you have broken it tinkering and now your blaming the machine....

Changing the CPU you have increased the heat loading by 57% (55w vs 35w) of course it will need to up it's cooling to keep up. You can't blame the machine for that, it's basic physics!

No it was fine. i have looked into it the graphics card can increase it a bit. it was runnig quiet until i put the two 3tb hard drives in they run hotter than my old drives and the ilo makes the fan run faster other people have a lot more powerful cpus in and are fine i cant afford to change my hard drives to make it queiter and which ones would i go for. if i take out the drives it is quiet again look around and you will see noise and fan problems its a design fault

Absolutely not a design fault, the machine is merely compensating for the increased heat loading, the more heat you dissipate within the case the more it needs to exhaust out! If the drives are running really hot then this is the issue not the machine.

good machine ... re fan noise.. the fan for some reason, is linked to the inbuilt raid controller, if you dont use your drives thru the b120i the fan will run at something like 26% (a bit noisy( whereas if you run your disks thru the RC the fan will drop back to 6% after startup. the disks can be set as jbod rather than any "real" raid. I might be completely wrong ofc. the other thing about heat is that the i3 will only give out 55w when running at 100% thats pretty rare on my machine.

Yes that's correct, but TBH software RAID is better in the vast majority of situations anyway.

thats right i swapped to b120i to get it quieter but fan running at 26 percent to 32 percent in a front room is very noisy. without the new drives it was 10 percent and was lovely and quiet. need to get it in the loft really

Thanks for the info. What's the exact cpu? is it i3 3240 3m cache 3.40ghz SKT1155?

Eg.. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Intel-Core-i3-3240-Processor-3M-Cache-3-40-GHz-SR0RH-SKT1155-/262699569570?_trksid=p2141725.m3641.l6368

Has anyone tried moving a drive from N54L to one of these?
It was fine to stick os from N40L into N54L and it booted without issues, but there are more differences i guess this time.

Going from AMD architecture to Intel is very unlikely to boot.
