I really think I want to get one this go round.  Last I had was the N54L. I need a Plex server and think ClearOS might do the trick.  HP should send me one to test! 

I've been thinking of streaming 4K ...

... but it took me  a lot of investigation to get bit-perfect audio playback on Windows with all the variants in media types and sources.

Anyone got a good handle on all the issues? Codecs VP9,H265; protection HDCP; signalling displayport whatever version; HDR; refresh rates; ...

 

Eventually got everything sorted with a LINX 1010E tablet @ £99 refurb from ebay.

Experimenting with a CHUWI Hi13 tablet (love the screen size and quality) @ £260 new for video.

Probably translate to £399....

 

The Gen8 is £120 after rebate in the UK. If the Gen10 is a 'cost cutting' model (many features taken out) do you think it will eventually reach £99 or lower in the UK?

No, the "after rebate" cost is in no way, IMHO, an indication of what cost the Gen10 will be.

 

The Gen8 is currently, as I can find it, around the £190 mark for the G1610T, 4Gb RAM, no optical and no HDD's.

 

 

I've asked my supplier what Gen10 stuff he has, if any..

Won't be buying them from there at that price lol

 

Gen10 Entry (X3216, 8Gb, 0Gb) £294

Gen10 Entry (X3216, 8Gb, 1Tb) £330

Gen10 Performance (X3421, 16Gb, 0Gb) £427

Do these server have the amd cpus based on the new EPYC? Zen technology or still the old and cpu Tech?

They are not Zen technology. They are part of the Opteron APU line:

So basically it's a good idea to snap up the Gen8 at those prices while stocks last...?

You could do if you can find them at a decent price and then get the rebate put through before it ends as they tend to run for a certain amount of time...

 

Once they're all gone the second-hand market might improve a bit and I can sell mine lol

Bought mine from newegg for $381

 

Price is higher for the early adopters, I'm sure there will be better deals in a year or so but I needed a new server now.

Can you post a link to the model you bought?

      I have bought Seagate Enterprise ST8000NM055 drives.
       
      There are few things you should know about this model - it is expensive compared to many other 8Tb models, it has extended warranty, it is made with closed drive case so the mounting holes are not screwed through.
       
      The problem is I couldn't put the hole screw inside so the drive isn't fixed and I also got a problem wheh putting the drive rail inside the cage as the screw top makes it too wide.
       

       
      Has anyone met this problem?
       
      I've bought some spare screws on Ebay to shorten them (I don't want to mess arount with genuine screws) so they can fit but the parcel was lost.

      Hi, I have an HPE Proliant  Microserver Gen10  x3216  with ubuntu server installed. 
       
      Recenty i decided to check my CPU frequency (in ubuntu and in the EFI) and i realised that it only runs at 1.6Ghz max even though specifications claims that it can go up to 3.0Ghz.
      Do you know if there is something i can do about it? I´ve already called HPE to ask for help but the only answer i got was "we do not support overclock" even though it´s not overclock because the values are withing the factory limits that they claim it can work.
       
      I tried to make several stress test and put the server under heavy CPU loads but all i can get is 1.6Ghz.
       
      Sorry if i made any mistakes , english it´s not my first language.

      Hi,
       
      Not sure if this is a taboo subject?? but delete if needed.
      I have bought a Gen 10 Micro Server for my home so i can run a Plex Server in house. i have all the drivers and updates that i need from the HP website
      but gone and noticed that the Bios update i need from what i can gather i need a contract? I'm not sure what to do?
      how do i get the bios update for this server?
       
      when i bought this server its running on 5.12 version with a build date of 05/25/2017 so my bios is well out of date.
       
      can any one guide me in the right direction to get the update?
       
      thanks

      After reading a lot of stuff here and there I am planning some sort of investigation... I'd like to make a board adapter to make Microserver work with any 120mm fan (PWM or DC regulated) without problems and failures. I know some members got problems when installed a new fan and tried different connection schematics.
       
      Here's what I'd like to do:
       
      6pin HP connector <-----cable----> adapter board with MCU   -----> 4-pin fan connector (+ 6-pin HP-compliant one for backward compatibility)
       
      Desired functionality of MCU board:
      1. Working rotation detect with any fan based on rpm counter.
      2. MCU-based rotation speed regulation using both PWM and DC modes to allow support for any fan. DC controlled fan low-voltage cutoff detection should be included.
      3. "First-run" mode to check to lowest voltage and detect PWM-DC fan control functionality.
       
      I couldn't find some information:
      1. What 6-pin connector type HP utilyses to allow the board connection to Microserver mobo as I wouldn't like to disassemble the original fan?
      2. Have anyone tried the rotation detect imitation (having a 6-pin custom connector and a potentiometer would let me do that)?
      3. Can you help me to collect some information regarding the issue in this topic to make things easier as I can say there's 5 or 6 topics only on Reset and I also find some info on HP and other related forums?
