I know there are a couple different stress test applications out there to run after I get my new PC setup but what do you guys recommend? Also, I am creating a checklist of pre-tasks, tasks and post-tasks... does anyone have a good checklist or a reference to one that is out on the net?

I use "Aida64" as it is a kitchen sink approach and has a wealth of information. http://www.aida64.com/

I am my own stress test. Nothing better than that.

Originally I was going to have my new pc site in a open front cabinet but I think I am going to have an issue with cable lengths and overall space. So, now I am thinking the new PC will be sitting on the wood floor. The case has a bottom filter for the PSU but what do you think of having the PSU flipped upside down so the PSU fan is sucking air from inside the case? I am not sure that would be a good idea but wonder what others think?

I think you're right to be concerned about having it on the floor. Certainly wood is better than carpet but still... Only you know how dusty it gets in that area so it's your call. I would say that any amount you are able to raised it above the floor will be beneficial.

 

As far as flipping the PSU, why not try it and monitor the temps. Also, feel the air coming out of the PSU. If it's not too hot you should be good.

I got the new PC built during the CES Keynote and no issues thus far... I am enjoying the upgrade and additional screen. I will post some pics of the new build and setup.

Congrats. I like the crowd sourcing approach unfortunately I get a bit impatient. Good luck with your new build.

      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..
