Indeed. When you're running many many servers, the extra cost for the branded servers and their support and reliability is worth it. I've seen proliants running for over 10 years with minimal issues, other than disk swaps. And even then, swapping them is a cinch, with no downtime, etc. And I've also seen a few howlers, like firmware which could trash the disks after a certain amount of uptime! But this g10 doesn't really have much of a USP. Disks are not hotswap, iLO is an extra, and the price isn't the sort of unmissable deal that was around for the g7 and g8 range. And being a Xeon with no GPU, you'll need to find a low profile GPU to do any hardware encoding. I can't really see a market. Home enthusiast would be better served with a proper built NAS or self build with commodity hardware. Enterprise are better off with proper servers. I suppose smallish IT companies setting up small offices might find these useful as a standard known hardware to deploy standard builds, but they'd probably have contracts to buy in bulk, or at least semi regularly to enjoy some sort of discount.

true but you could say that about alot of deals on HUKD but I get your point Not too sure about these model but the with their other servers like the Proliants Im sure people are just paying for the reliability etc

I've got a Gen8 which cost £130 with cashback. I brought the RAM up to 16GB and got a Xeon 1260L for £70 on eBay from China. Total cost for all that was around £250, which makes the Gen10 really poor value in comparison. They also removed iLO, which is incredibly useful when you've had to disconnect the power button because your toddler keeps turning it off! Mine is also headless, so no iLO could be really painful.

I think it's OK with cooling. I have a t variant CPU with a low profile Akasa cooler . Didn't want to risk a normal i5. It fits where the normal HP board (without fan) was and I just have network and VGA cable connected. I'm too ashamed to take a picture - it's quite bad.

kramms

Had an old i5 2400 dell mobo around the house. Using that instead in an old gaming case that had 6 hdd bays. Slapped together but is free, just goes in the cupboard so don't really care what it looks like.

steve_on_hotukdeals

What are you going to replace it with?

kramms

Sounds interesting as its a great chassis, Cooling ok with an i5? Be interested to see some picture on what you did

kramms

Just decommissioned my N40L, it had a long good life. Still works no issue just getting a bit sluggish for extra bit it need. Still great as a NAS though.

no, but I'm sure you can find one by looking on Ebay and thence the correct boad for this model of microsever

nige182

Are you sure about that one? That looks like a N54L board which is Gen7 and not LGA1155.

jasee

See Ebay for instance: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/392868274837?

dj_sa

Part number? Thanks,

b1g1an

They're proprietary HP motherboards but it's socket LGA1155 if that helps.

Gen8 was an absolute steal and great spec too. I got mine for £180 and then an £80 cashback. After three years, it's still running great and perennial. Anyone looking for one, is better off trying to find a gen 8

twister777

Are there still new Gen8 for sales somewhere apart from picking one up from fleebay. Would be interested to pick one up.

StephanPotter

I have a Gen8 model with all the bits and bobs on it, no point upgrading to a Gen10 at that price

burntoast

Thanks

shappinbegs

Gen 10 was AMD. Gen 8 was Intel

Ive never heard of unRAID before until now, it does sound like an interesting route in terms of setting up your RAID. Do keep me posted with your build, would be interesting to know how it plans out! At the moment i have a N54L with a P410 using X4 500GB disks in RAID5 & a 120GB SSD boot disk. I used to use it with xpenology and streamed movies around the house but after focusing more on my day job and dealing with servers i got Windows Server 2008 R2 Std on it and currently setting to run it as a data/Plex server. :D

zandermichaeljason

Cheers for the response - Took a look around on the web and it looks like 16TB (4*4TB) was the biggest at the time of manufacturing so that's all they can officially say (y)

KOLIBERk

It's working fine, but I have 4x 6TB REDs in two mirrors, so its two 5.9TB volumes.

Don't worry - I do understand all the RAID options (0,1, 10, 5, 6, synology's SHR, etc.) pretty well. :-) With unRAID it uses one or more parity disks for resilience. I currently have one 4Tb parity disk and one 4Tb data disk. I didn't want to get 3x4tb disks initially, as this is my first NAS and I wanted to see how much use I would actually make of it. If I do make a lot of use of it then I will start adding extra data disks. The downside of the parity approach is that real time calculation of the parity means that data transfer rates fall from about 112Mb sec (I assume that this is limited by the 1 Gbit network) to about 40 Mb sec if transferring more than 1 or 2 Gb. unRAID allows you to use a caching disk to resolve this issue. I have already installed a 512Gb disk in the top slot on the microserver but I will only enable this once I have copied over the bulk of the data to unRAID. (As I understand it once I enable the cache disk the most data that I can write in a day to unRAID will be the size of the caching disk - as by default it only flushes once per day at 3:40am. I assume that I can change this to flush more regularly but I cannot see that I will be writing more than 512Gb per day once the NAS is fully up and running with all my data on it.)

Damn, the price has gone through the roof. :/

this is the guy i got it off it came as a 1.7w variant https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1pc-SUNON-GB1206PTV2-AY-fan-12V-1-3W-3pin/131569777592?epid=1272649416&hash=item1ea22b7bb8:g:o9sAAOSwgQ9VrGNi i plugged it into a 12v fan header on my pc to test its default speeds which i think was just under 3700 on a 12.26v fan header and slowed it down to 2000/2200 or so cant remember exactly with two reducers it will perform far better with only one reducer you should plug one in and see what it reduces to as yours may well be different to mine and reduce far more per reducer Delta BFB0512LD 50x50x20mm 4.63 CFM at 3850 RPM (Stock mine runs) 4.45 CFM at 3700 RPM (Spec Speed) 3.56 CFM at 2960 RPM (Speed i run mine) Sunon Maglev GB1206PTV2-AY 60x60x25mm 7.30 CFM at 3600 RPM 5.06 CFM at 2500 RPM the microserver fan try's to keep it at 85 with momentary peaks of 90 which is within spec but a bit toasty and also means the case fan is going full pelt alot fitting the sunon keeps the rear fan at 10% for a lot longer under load and lowers the overall rear fan speeds e.g. with my 1265L v2 with a 50mm delta at 2950 rpm it stays under 75 full load with the rear fan running 10% to 20% depending on inlet ambient temps if the delta wasnt there the rear fan would be on something like 50% and the core temp would be 85 peaking at momentary 90 the 1240 v2 isnt quite as easy to cool as the 1265L v2 uses a max for 38.5w under full load at 8 threads x 3.1ghz where as the 1240 v2 uses a max of 54w under full load at 8 threads x 3.6ghz but its the same sort of thing

karlypants

Thanks for your reply, it's much appreciated! I have got 2 spare fan speed reducers so will try those. What is the maximum temp the CPU can safely run at? I put an offer in of $15 for the Sunon but they are not biting and don't fancy paying $21.98 for it. I believe it is the same seller where you got yours from. I found another seller that has one listed that is just $9.93 but has the mini 3-pin connector. Do you know if you can buy a 3-pin adapter? I have had a look but haven't found one yet. This is the fan here Thanks

Shonk

the sunon performs the best you not looking at ambient temps and rpm's etc e.g. i had two reducers on the sunon
