So I'm trying to replace my ageing HP Proliant Microserver N54L. It's used as a general dogs body server, running Blue Iris, Plex and as my NAS server.
I'm on a pretty tight budget but the poor server is always at 90% + CPU because of the CCTV and I'm looking at adding a second camera soon.
Is there such a thing as a reasonably priced ECC home server build?
My MVP is 8GB ECC memory, with 4 threads on the CPU.
I'd prefer a small form factor but that's like gold dust unless you throw a lot of $$££€€ at it. I've got to get this past my partner you see 😅
Any ideas? I'm not loyal to any particular brand, so long as it works.
I am building a Ryzen machine. Using the new Ryzen 7. What is the best ram to use. Obviously ddr4. And recommendations on brand and size
I have a Gen8 G1610T since 2 years and I am very happy with it. I use it to only host my Plex Server with 3*2Tb drives.
I bought for a cheap price (40€) a Xeon E3-1220v2 and I have question about it. I have read Elvisdk's topic about temperature with G1610T default heatsink on 1220v2 and I wonder if play (and transcode) 1080p movies with 4 cores enable will be ok or too hot ? Did I must enable only 2 cores to be safe ?
I cannot compare Elvisdk's temperature with wPrime burnt with the temperatures generated by Plex because I don't know them with a E3-1220v2...
Thanks for your feedback.
I have upgraded from G1610T to E3-1265Lv2 with success but the memory speed which is still stuck at 1333MHz instead of 1600Mhz.
I have 2 x 4GB DIMMs with one be the original HPE DIMM and the other a Crucial 4GB 240 Pin DDR3 1600 MTps PC3-12800 CL11 Unbuffered ECC UDIMM Memory Module )(https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00IW4M9PK/ref=pe_385721_37986871_TE_item)
The iLO memory summary is always showing:
and while I am on the latest firmware ....
The BIOS options available are : 1066, 1333, Auto
I have also tried the power setting to "max performance" but still the memory speed remains to 1333Mhz
Any ideas on how to set the memory operating frequency to 1600Mhz ?
HI, I have purchased a GEN 10 microserver (version CPU AMD Opteron X3216 / 1.6 GHz with 8 Gb RAM).
I have installed Server 2016 Standard (two hard disk: 2Tb and 4Tb RED) but I have a problem with memory.
In windows server it says: 8 Gb RAM (6,96 GB available).
install video driver from HP web page uninstall it and leave the basic default driver check all BIOS option to search for a option for the shared video card memory. (I haven't found anything)
So no luck.
Does any body knows how to increase the available RAM ?
