Now the issue is not being able to test components as I get them if I don't get them in the right order. So, next should be the power supply. Agree?

 

I've often thought about getting a PSU tester, but I've heard there are a lot of crappy ones for sale. If anyone knows of a decent one, both for quality and price, please post it.

Most power supply testers do not sufficiently test the unit under load or test the short circuit protection. I would not waste the money on a PSU tester. Just my opinion.

That's pretty much what I figured. It's too bad really. I guess a good one would just cost too much to make.

Cooler Master, OCZ, etc...kind of hard to go wrong with these guys. I have this unit in my HTPC...no issues whatsoever.

PSU is now in stock... I will install the PSU into the case today and post some pics.

 

Can't imagine you'll have any problems with that PSU.

      Hey guys, 
       
      Bit of a random question here, and I know it depends on many factors such as what they are doing etc, but how many VMs have you guys comfortably ran on Gen8 with an E3-1265v2 and 16GB RAM? When did you start to see a performance hit compared to what the Gen8 is generally capable of?

      This is my first post here but I've been lurking in this forum for quite sometime now, and from what I understand, the only reason that we couldn't achieve 32gb ram on the Microserver Gen8 was because there was no 16gb unbuffered ecc ram available before.
       
      I was searching for a memory module meeting this criteria and I found this one. My question is, letting aside this ridiculous price, is there any compatibility issue that could make this ram won't work on the Microserver Gen8?
       
      Most of the threads here about memory compatibility are quite old and I didn't want to revive an old thread just to ask this, so I'm creating this one.
       
      Thanks in advance.

      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
