This forum doesn't move that fast, there is no reason to bump a thread that has only moved down 4 slots since yesterday's post. TY - nc

That's still an awfully powerful server! I'm not sure about using the embedded GPU for photo editing; transcoding sure, but it might lag a bit on photo editing, depending on how demanding your editing will be.

All!!

 

With this final post I am closing the thread.

I have included my final build list, below, and as someone pointed out - this is a very powerful server and I hope that it will do its job for a long time.

Now I am busy trying to really explore the best optioons on virtualization - (see my post under that are here in the forum)

 

Once again - Thank you so much for your time and effort in helping me out!

Nice. You will not run out of power anytime soon. Good luck with it. Posts some pics before you end this thread. Thanks for the update.

      Hello,
      I am using https://www.digi.com/products/networking/infrastructure-management/console-servers/digi-connect-it-16-48 (Digi Connect IT 16), and connecting by LAN to a Windows PC.
      I need to add 2 connectors. Can I connect a serial device to a serial port in PC and see it as a COM port in the local PC?
      Can Serial to Ethernet (https://www.serial-server.net/serial-device-server/serial-to-ethernet/) do this? How to configure it?
      Thank you,
      Ben.

      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?

      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
