I used Server 2012 r2 installed on a SSD and have 4x 1tb hard drives in a Raid 1+0 setup. Ive then upgraded the ram to 16gb and cpu to e3-1260l Quad core.



Got the old proliant server running with Win Server 2012. Been able to extend the license of the trial version to date - but now hit the maximum number of times you can do it. Seems I now have to purchase it, or wipe the server clean, and do a fresh install.

Have you purchased yours - or also using trial version? Anyone aware of any way to extend it further? Workarounds online do not work.

PS. I assume if I just remove the 'data' drives, and do a fresh install on my SSD (OS drive) then I can just plug my data drives back in and I am away to go? Trying to find the easiest way around this - not paying 500+ for server 2012!

Synology would be a best bet for media!!

Which OS are you using? The fact that it performs better with a single … Which OS are you using? The fact that it performs better with a single NIC would point to a configuration issue. Unless you have a managed switch, NIC bonding is largely pointless. It's OK if configured for redundancy, but you'll only ever get benefit from it if you concurrently need more than 1gbps (combined) in a single direction to multiple clients simultaneously, with less than 1gbps per client. Are you using onboard NICs? If you're transcoding, and CPU usage is at 100%, this will affect the performance of the onboard NICs. Especially if there's bonding involved, as this is more computationally expensive (as it's all done in software). Did your 54L have a PCI NIC?I'd try diagnosing in the following order:1. Remove bonding - since a single NIC isn't performing as it should, this should be the main focus.2. Storage - is your storage capable of providing data > 1gbps? The 70MB/s you're getting is awfully close to the transfer speed of some hard drives, so that could be the bottleneck.3. CPU - try with a standard file copy (via samba, scp, etc...), and keep an eye on the CPU usage during the copy. If you can reach reasonable speeds, the transcoding software/cpu usage is to blame - if not, then it's possible a deeper config issue with the NIC, or a hardware issue.4. Limit the CPU usage of the transcoder to around 80% - this should leave plenty of resources for everything that uses CPU (onboard NICs/SATA controllers, etc). Do another test to see what your throughput is like. If that doesn't work, it's going to need much deeper diagnosis unfortunately.

Put in a GTX 960 in yesterday (by the way, only one that will fit is that Gigabyte ITX one). Works perfectly. Been gaming at 1080p for hours with no issues

The 960 GTX is a good GPU for this box as it has a 6 pin, and the TDP is low. Ordered one and going to return the 750 ti...had to get the Gigabyte ITX variant as the rest are too big to fit

GPS works just fine

I love my 1520, you get used to the size very quickly and take the screen quality for granted. It's only when you pick up another phone that you appreciate how good it really is. It's integration with my work email and SharePoint is seem less.As others have said, excellent snapping ability.I personally don't miss anything from the Xperia I had before. I do have long fingers and wear combats with cargo pockets though...

Thanks, this is an excellent deal. Much better spec than the equivalent Dell T110 for the money. It also appears to have more space for additional drives etc

Cracking price, remember these CPUs are basically i5s but designed to be more reliable, so good powerful machines too

Can this be used as a desktop computer?



Yes, it would work just fine as a desktop PC, however, you'd need to install the OS of your choice first. You'd also need to have a monitor and keyboard/mouse.
