whats my gen 8 roughly worth

Recommended Posts

Karlos

Im not sure really where to go and was hoping for some help on pricing if its allowed here.

i have a gen8 HP proliant micro server. im looking at selling it for a few reasons. i need the money for kids medical bills, and i was under utilising its capabilities, so therefore it was overkill for what i needed. ive had a look an completed listings on ebay and with such a big range in pricing,  im hoping some people here that live and breathe these machines could give me some advice.

ive removed the celeron it had when i bought it and it is now running a Xeon E3-1265L V2

16GB RAM (Kingston KTH-PL316E/8G)

has a AMD 6450(from memory) GPU. (was able to out put video from my windows 10 HTPC VM to my TV)

8GB USB drive internally for ESXi 6

a Seagate Barracuda 3TB

a WD Red 2TB

and Kingston SSDnow V+ 120GB SSD

i had one of the drives setup as storage for server 2012 VM

the other as storage for the windows 10 HTPC

and the SSD to have the OS Partitions as well as SOPHOS firewall.

it didnt get a tonne of usage and has been out of commission for over a year now.

ive recently fired it all back up and cleaned the VMS out and formatted the drives with 7x pass drive eraser.

 

can anyone give me some help with a value or price point on this thing?

 

thanks in advance.

It really depends on the demand. It may be worth $800 but you probably won't get that much unless someone is seriously committed to purchasing a gen 8 with those specs.

Its crap over here in the Uk as well, I tried many times to get rid of mine, all I managed to sell was the P222 and the 16Gb RAM..

Doesnt help that the Gen8 is still on cashback, people dont wanna pay more than £80-90 for the base unit.

In what part of the world are you located?

I would start with an ebay search of completed auctions to see what they are selling for near me:

https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_nkw=microserver+gen8&_in_kw=1&_ex_kw=&_sacat=0&LH_Complete=1&_udlo=&_udhi=&_samilow=&_samihi=&_sadis=15&_stpos=55016&_sargn=-1%26saslc%3D1&_salic=1&_sop=15&_dmd=1&_ipg=50

 

You may make more money parting it out. E3-1265L v2 are selling at $160-$200. The memory is a odd, $60-$75 for the pair or $30-$60 for each stick?! SSD is $30-$35. WD 2TB Red $40-$60. Seagate 3TB $30-$50.

      The SDM R4 is SOLD OUT!
       
       
      The SDM R4 is a bracket that facilitates mounting two additional 2.5″ drives in a HP MicroServer Gen8. There are also mounting holes for fans across the bottom to help cool RAID/SATA cards. The kit includes all the fasteners needed to install.
       
      With optional Stackers you can run four 2.5″ drives on the SDM R4. The SDM R4 will support four 9.5MM 2.5″ drives. If you want to run four drives on the SDM R4, you need to order SSB stacking brackets listed below. One set of SSB per drive pair, four drives will require two SSB kits. Because of the size of the SDM R4, if you are going to boot your server using the internal USB port, you will need to use a USB stick that is shorter than 1″. For more information on mounting instructions look here: http://homeservershow.com/forums/index.php?/topic/5960-hp-ms-g8-25-drive-bracket-revision-history-new-rev-35-and-rev-4-info/?p=137922

      Wonder if anyone can point me in the right direction here. Have just replaced the CPU on my gen 8 microserver. Went according to the video above. Upon booting the server up, there is a clicking sound coming from the main board. Regular as clockwork, and the server isn't posting. Any ideas? I've swapped back to the G1610T CPU, but still the same issue. And just make it interesting, I don't have access to a monitor or keyboard.

      So yesterday i dropped my surface on tile flooring. When i picked it up i just clicked the home button to see if it still turned on, it did. However when i got home later i noticed it had a huge hair line crack. When i turned it back on , it sent me to my lock screen and the screen was completely unresponsive. i called microsoft didnt have the warranty so im stuck. i was wondering if i could just buy a case with a keyboard, but i know it may require bluetooth which i cant get to because im on the lock screen. I'm making a last ditch effort is it worth it?

      Hello,
      My company wanted to try out the SP in our business environment so I volunteered.  I have been using a SP fro about 2 months and really love the device. My company has now decided to make a bigger commitment and is rolling out SP2s.
      My question is how do I transfer my apps and contents to my new device.  I understand the contents on SkyDrive will not be an issue, but what about the contents installed on the local device.
       
      Thanks in advance
