Entry level Server that supports SATA / SAS. The CPU equates to roughly Core i5-750S:

Core i5-750S: http://ark.intel.com/Product.aspx?id=42917
Xeon X3430: http://ark.intel.com/Product.aspx?id=42927

We have bought this server and in my opinion this server is ideal to be used as a Home/Office Storage Server (As it supports SATA, and it is relatively quiet- can't hear anything really, next to my work pc), or Mail Server etc.

It has a IBM/LSI ServeRAID M1015 SAS/SATA controller which itself sells for £110+ :

Server Price is £258.49 inc VAT plus 10ish next business day delivery

1. only 1GB DDR3 ECC memory and upgrading costs a lot. (6 slots available)
2. To add more drives, you need to order part 25R8864 the SATA II Bracket which is quite hard to get.

In all, it is a very powerful base for a home/ small office server, and certainly worth the price.

The controller is actually £230 on it's own.

Here's the announce letter for it.

This disk controller will also suport RAID 5 if you purchase a "ServeRAID M1000 Series Advanced Feature Key" add on.

It also works with VMware ESXi 4.0 :thumbsup: I have just set it up.

It is almost worth putting this PCIx8 card on the bay, and use the motherboard's SATA controller :whistling:
Stupid question, but what can you use this thing for? I mean the average person not a geek.
Sold out now?
You could buy this Machine and use it as a network storage unit that supports Mirroring

Put 4 x 1TB hard drives on it, install Linux, and use it as a 2TB network storage.

Or, chop the side of the half lengh PCI-Express slot so that you can put a Graphics Card in it. Then, add one sound card, you could use it as a Core i5 gaming machine!
Ahhhh when I post this, there is like 60 left !

Looks like Servers Plus have an even better deal as there's has 500gb and 2gb DDR3
Thanks for the info Tom! I called and it is indeed a much better deal, all you need to do is purchase a upgrade with it.
What qualifies for the upgrade from Servers+?

Cheapest option? Looking for a new server for a lab machine


Can be just a DDR2 Memory upgrade.
From the picture of the RAID card, it looks like it's only got 2 connectors for hard drives.

Do you need to buy some kind of adapter to be able to plug in 8 drives?
