New PC Build... Any help is appreciated.

Recommended Posts

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.

That is an interesting PSU... fan less option is something I didn't even think of. I will have to look up some reviews. Do you have one these?

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

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

      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

      Hi Community,
       
      First, my specs (briefly):
      MicroServer Gen10
      AMD Opteron X3216
      Win Server 2016
      [...]
       
      Problem:
      The Taskmanager shows only 1 CPU-core instead of 2.
      (ref. image 1)
       
      Solutions tried:
      checked msconfig...no CPU-Limit set checked, whether other users see the same amount of CPU-cores in task-manager (ref. image-link (internal) 2)  
      Anyone out there with an idea to solve this?
       
      Greets
      Henrik

      Hi Guys,
       
      New member here, some great info on this forum so hopefully a few of you have experience with the Intel E3-1260L CPU running in a HP Microserver Gen8? 
       
      I know for sure it will work as I’ve seen some good threads on here but can anyone tell me if the upgrade made a noticeable difference in the fan speeds and noise?  
       
      Im looking at putting two Gen8’s in a living room in place of an old N54L so cautious of too much noise..
