Molex Y splitters.
Haha for 4 drives off one molex? That's some daisy chaining haha
FWIW, for work we deploy Gen10 microservers for our clients. Since the availability dropped off in Australia, I've purchased probably 16 of them from eeeshop (Italy based). Always worked out to under $1k each even for the Opteron X3421 version, typically ordered 4 at a time, and they only charged AU$100 or so for shipping.
Yes there's be import duties when they arrived at our shores but all said and done ended up being only a little over $1k each.
When I went to order another 4 recently, I found they don't have Gen10 anymore, only the Gen10 Plus, so ordered 4 of those are only a little more ($100 more). Despite the basic version now being 2C/4T CPUs, they are much faster than the old 4C versions.
There is now also an optional iLO5 upgrade adapter that enables system management for about $150 I think, but we haven't had a need for these anyway.
Mine just died too... Which one did you get out of curiosity?
I got a spare microserver PSU if you are interested. Bought one thinking mine died and it turned out to be my UPS.
Nah it's all good, the PicoPSU works fine. Ended up repinning a molex cable from my modular PSU haha
Can anyone assist? (Not for sale here, likely selling to neighbour just want to know rough value)
Honestly, it should be priced similar to a desktop PCs w/ similar specs, which means very low to free.
the value of the system is in the drives, what could you get for the drives alone? That's about the value, honestly.
Hope that helps,
$100 mates rates to neighbour perhaps?
