These things are crazy. A brand new one, which was bog stock standard, just went for $710 on eBay!
at that price it might be time to sell mine
Was that Gen 8 or Gen 10 ?
Are you mad? You won’t get a Gen 10 for anywhere near that, more like $1,300.
The eBay sale was a Microserver Gen8 G1610T 2GB RAM No HDD.
Sorry my bad. Should have checked going rates before asking.
In another life, I bought 2 Gen8 servers from US, and brought them with me to Australia 3 years back. Looks like I am sitting on a pot of gold. heheh
No mate my bad if you thought I was aggressive, I didn’t mean it.
You don’t have any links back in the US still? That seems to be the only option for a Gen 10 -> AU atm.
Edit: I would normally just say diy build but it doesn’t seem to be as easy as that.
No, you are a'right. Its only a Monday.
I could look into getting one from US, if I was pushed.
But too be honest, I am only using 1 of my Gen 8 as a prod UnRAID currently (24TB). The other unit is a dedicated test unit, so only comes on, when required. Its had a fairly easy life... haha
Thanks mate! It just went in a snap.
When you get a chance, please see what you can do from the US.
do you need drives ?
i could be convinced to sell mine with no drives.
give me a day or two to think about it and then flick me a PM
naturally the rules shall be followed, and a listing in FS will/would be made for transparent sale
Not really thanks Mutman, I would like to go a new build.
I currently have a 4x2TB and a 2x14TB to go in.
All good. If you get stuck yell out
I have two gen 8 microservers, recently purchased e3-1230 v2 cpu for the units. can I just plufg them in or do I need to update the firmware etc, if so where do I get the firmware from please
When I upgraded my unit, I didnt need to update my firmware in order to detect the new processor. I would just check the BIOS is able to see the new processor during boot up.
Having said that its better to keep BIOS etc updated for bug fixes etc.
i dropped a 1265 in with zero dramas
go for it
How does one obtain the latest bios please, current running linux on my microservers
Also does anyone have the blanking plate or where to acquire one for the gen 8 dvd bay please. Going to replace my dvd drive with a hdd
My N36L PSU died
I ended up getting a generic Pico PSU off ebay, I was wondering how everyone was powering their drives off a pico psu as they only have a pata molex and sata connector. Was thinking about modding a spare molex power cable from my modular PSU and plugging into that.
