HP ProLiant Microserver Gen8, Xeon, multiple disks, hardware RAID


Recommended Posts

As much as I like having a second server, I don't *need* a second server and I do need other things, so the beloved BORGCUBE is going up for sale.




Xeon E3-1265L v2 CPU (4 cores, eight threads)

16GB Kingston ECC DDR3 memory

Slim DVD-RW drive with official HP cables

HP Smart Array P212 RAID controller, 256MB cache, battery backup

2 x WD Green 2TB drives in RAID-1 connected to the RAID controller.  Drives have been set to 5m spindown with WDIDLE3.

1 x Crucial M4 128GB SSD connected to the B120i controller, in a SchoonDoggy Drive Bracket v2

Space for two more 3.5" drives, one more 2.5" drive

iLO4 Advanced key - you get all the features


System has been under HP Care Pack, so it is up to date on all firmware updates

I am only shipping to the lower 48 states in the US; I have the original box.


$500 plus actual shipping.  Consider that the Xeon actually goes for about half that price without everything else.  Pictures are available in my gallery.

I'm looking forward to using this to replace my G2020T.. Soon after I receive the borgcube will be sporting a P222/512 and my 4GB HGST drives from the 2020T
