Is the G1610T the highest spec CPU that's currently paired with the Gen8 from HP? Been thinking of picking up one of these as a home VM/lab/test box but didn't want to get something underpowered out of gates or that required an immediate hardware upgrade.

Here's a table comparing the CPU's that's listed in the Gen8 Links thread -- I didn't have a passmark score for the G1610T but you still get the idea I think from the table where it sits -- like ikon said the G2020T is the faster of the two stock CPU's but if you're planning to replace the CPU in the future it makes more sense to get the cheaper G1610T model.

OK. Next time they run another promo like this, I'm snagging a G8, 16 GB RAM and a Xeon.

Nice, Joe!

 

I just ordered an open-box 1610T myself for $308; if it doesn't work out, I'll be returning it and seeing if I can't get this deal, which I had no idea of.

 

Planning on selling the N54L and going to Server 2012R2 Standard with the Windows Server Essentials role added.  I'm going to need to figure out whether I go HyperV or ESXi; I wouldn't bother, but since MS doesn't offer a nice in-place upgrade from 2012 to 2012R2, I'm not going to be caught  without an easy-upgrade path again.  Really ticks me off that they can't be bothered to make it a little easier, at least on the entry end.

It may be better to pick up a Dell t110 for about 525 when they are on sale again.  For the price you get a Xeon, 500gb hard drive, dvd rom drive and 4gb of ram.  Not bad for 525.  Now it is a bigger pc but you get it at a good cost.

I agree with the above post.  You get a great deal with the G8 and then spend another $250 for Xeon processor?  It kind of defeats the whole purpose, right?

      As I have decided to make some improvements on my afermarket fan controller I am trying to try implementing thermal control or mobo PWM control of additional fans, but before that I'm in a great need to inderstand how much fan count the controller should be ready to support. As this forum doesn't support polls I have nothing to do but ask you to reply on this topic.
       
      What I would be thankful to know:
      1. How many fans have you installed in your Microserver.
      2. What fans do you use (size, 3/4-pin connector) and where are they located, also what are they cooling.
      3. What way do you power these fans?
       
      Thank you in advance for your feedback!

      Hi everyone.
       
      New to this forum.
      I have a gen8 microserver running at home, where I have installed an SSD in the ODD sata slot. On the SSD I have installed Ubuntu Server 18.04.
      I have then created a logical volume witht the raid controller and can then boot to the SSD. So far so good.
      My problem emerges when I reboot the system. The logical volume disapears and it gives the error: "boot logical drive is configured but is missing or offline".
      I then have to go into the utility and reconfigure the logical volume. Kind of annoying, when trying to run a headless setup.
