Firstly, why are you shouting?

Secondly, no. Issues with PC gaming right now are that GPUs are expensive due to high demand from the Ethereum miners.

You'll want to spend around £300 for a basic system for Minecraft. My current budget gaming rig recommendations:

Good - £275.53 - Super basic gaming rig, good for Minecraft and eSports, not much else.

the cashback is misleading. I imagine most on HUKD won't have company accounts to claim VAT back as well, so it should be £119.09 after cashback.

As for Gen10, I was not aware until just looking at quickspecs. Seems a weak system for 2017 - and only AMD processor at the moment, along with 32GB RAM limit. I get it's deliberately limited to not interfere with their ML10 line, but this could have so much more potential when you look how far the NUCs have come.
so you gave the pre-discount price INCLUDING VAT but the discounted price EXCLUDING VAT.
nice one on the misleading advert. /r/hailcorporate

You forgot delivery aswell.
just seen your comment regarding the gen10, cant see it for sale anywhere, why would anyone prefer this one?

only reason i kept my gen 7 is the dual PCI slots

Suggest you read correctly ,claims by 31st JULY!
Don't need it, have 2 Gen7 that are still working fine. If it was sub-£100 after cashback, I'd have probably bought one anyway, but this price, I'll pass.
I bought this over a year ago when i saw it on here, had high hopes for it...... its still in the box
Still love and depend on my gen7 with six drives in it and custom bios. Seems that each new model gets worse rather than better.

I purchased one of these on Friday from Serversplus and paid the 15 quid for saturday delivery.
Cracking little machine (to replace my N54L running xpenology and DSM 5) - got xpenology (with DSM 6.1.2) running on it nicely. Just need to decide on what to do about storage - new bigger disks or migrate existing disks...
I did think of waiting for the Gen10 - which does look an interesting bit of tin - but the pricetag on the gen10 might be more than I was thinking of paying.
Not sure if I am going to keep N54L as additional storage, add into VM farm or something else...

Think Id rather stick with the gen8, managed to upgrade the cpu on it and the benchmarks beat the amd.

That combined with ilo make it a better overall option.

Only thing which may benefit the gen10 is better onboard gpu, something my cpu upgrade broke.

Anyone know if this server will boot from an ssd installed on the 5th sata connection ment for optical drives? I looked around and it appears if you use an ssd on the optical port and have any other drives installed it will not boot any more from the ssd but defaults to the other sata ports and there is no option in the bios to make it use the ssd as the boot drive?

Yes it will work, but you need a molex to SATA power adapter. Just set up a single RAID0 on the SSD.

I use ahci and no it doesnt work.

What I had to do was remove the front hdds to get it to boot at first, then I used easybcd to create a usb based boot disk which was set as the first boot device.

Edit:

Also, just so you know its a floppy connector.

I ended up getting a odd to sata adapter and an adapter which converts floppy and sata to the odd sata connection.

Not sure what you've done here.. you can very easily run a sata cable from the ODD sata port to the top of the machine and then split the power off the existing molexs... never had a problem with the machine booting with or without HDD's in the front bays.

You can install Windows on it and it will take a low profile GPU, but it isn't ideal for gaming.

The Gen 8 is a massive step up from the Gen 7 (I have both), and the upcoming Gen 10 looks like a step backwards. However, the Gen 8 isn't without it's frustrations - choosing not to use the integrated RAID controller results in the fan running at high speed (noisy). Restarts take an age, making it less tinker-friendly despite the upgradeable CPU.

I bought one of these a few months back, upgraded the RAM to 8Gb and bought a second-hand Xeon CPU off ebay and it's an absolute flyer. Running Xpenology (Synology NAS).

As I said, I'm using AHCI which is the likely reason why I can't boot otherwise (wanted more than RAID 1).

I also chose the ODD adapter route because, at the time at least, it was the cheapest and easiest method for me to deal with the floppy connector (plus it secures the HDD).

It's been a couple of years since I set mine up but certainly at the time, I couldn't figure out a way to make the thing boot from the SDD if it was connected via the ODD SATA port. If memory serves, I just re-routed the cables using a SATA extension so that the SSD was connected to the first drive bay's SATA port and the drive in bay 1 went into the ODD port.

edit: I've popped it open to check and yes, apart from the fact I didn't use an extension, this is how I did it. I unscrewed the sata/power connector for bay 1 from the back of the drive cage and connected those to the SSD which is sat flat directly below the drives. A long SATA cable then runs from the ODD port over the top and into the back of bay 1. Bay 1 is powered by an FDD power -> SATA power adapter cable.

I haven't done it but I believe you can put grub onto a microsd card or usb stick (there are internal ports for both), boot from that and point it at your SSD. Should be very simple and a tiny card/stick will suffice.
My Gen 7 is staying with me til it dies....

The mining part is not a joke. All RX470/80/RX570/80 are either going to be out of stock(they have been for a few weeks now) - or being sold at price gouging figures on eBay.

I'll give a quick example of what's happening - Scan said they had some Sapphire RX570s arriving on the 16th June(Friday) so earlier in the week I rang them up and asked what the odds were of getting one - "Well Sir, your order would be number 390 so you might have to wait ...".

So that's 400 orders, just for one card - that had had a previous delivery two weeks earlier. Every Tom, Dick, and Harriet is snapping up AMD cards for mining ...

Hi everyone, I have the HP Gen7 microserver which I upgraded with HD video card, DVD drive (never used much) and additional memory 4GB. It has been fantastic, robust unit but it must be getting old and fan noise is becoming uncomfortable now.

Can someone please comment if the video card from previous machine be suitable to use in this Gen 8 machine - card is Sapphire 11190-02-20G AMD HD6450 1GB DDR3 Lite Retail PCI-E Graphics Card ?

I am happy to spend more if I can get a quieter, robust and better performing out of box system - can anyone please recommend something? My purpose will be to use it for normal home use like browsing, watching video, playing media, burning Blu-ray, iPlayer, music etc. Win10 will be good.

Am I missing something? Gen10 seems conclusively "better", but everywhere I have read has been slating it in comparison to Gen8... then again a lot of people slated Gen8 in comparison to G7 N54L, even though t was infinitely better!
You can put in a different CPU in the Gen8, so you can upgrade it in your own time.
For example, I've replaced the standard Celeron G1610T to the Xeon E3-1220Lv2!
You can't change the AMD CPU on the HP Gen10.
