DL360e, what to do with it..

Recommended Posts

Trig0r

So, many moons ago I bought a server on a whim, it was late, I may, or may not have been drinking..

 

DL360e G8 Server

2x E5-2448L's

52Gb RAM

500Gb Crucial SSD

P420/1Gb

 

Its got a rack and the rails, 4 NIC's, 4 of the 8 SFF caddies and a single 750w PSU (will take 2 tho), problem is, I dont really have the space, or any need for it..

 

I was thinking about trying to find a mATX motherboard that'll take the CPU and then use that to replace my i7-3770s server CPU and board, other than that, anyone in the UK need any bits or anyone suggest a board that'll take at least one of the CPU's?

Yeah I had a look around yesterday after I had posted this, chances of finding a board to put bits in is going to be a struggle...

 

Wonder if I could find an ATX board that would take both lol..

 

Thinking it might be staying as it is..

Supermicro and Gigabyte both made dual socket 1356 in extended ATX.

Yeah they arent cheap though, think it might strip it or sell it as it is, I've managed to find 1 LGA 1356 board but it only has 2 RAM slots so 16Gb tops, so no use as the machine I want to replace already has 32Gb in it...

I would look at selling it as a complete unit. Probably get the most out of it that way.

Might go install Win10 on it, just for the PnG's..
