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?

      Greetings,
       
      I'm new to the HPMSG8 world and so far I'm loving it. I have a stock Xeon with 16G of aftermarket memory with iLO patched to 2.70. Next up is adding a RAID card, so I can put my boot SSD on the onboard RAID. I picked up a LSI SAS9211-8i on Amazon, but am struggling to flash it to IT mode on the MicroServer. Is this even possible? Unfortunately, the only other system I have with PCI slots is 32-bit.
       
      Any pointers would be greatly appreciated.

      FYI, I have just installed Windows Server 2019 Standard (Desktop Experience) using the latest (WS2016) HP AMD chipset & VGA driver. Everything is recognised in Device Manager and stable.

      I need to update the firmware on a HP Proliant Microserver Remote Access Card installed in my N40L.
       
      Can someone please explain what I need to do to create a boot device that will update the firmware on the Remote Access Card?
       
      Thanks

      Good evening,
       
      after checking my ILo4, version2.61 on my Gen8 hp microservet, i saw an exclamation mark at cpld-pal0. It is now version 0x06.
      i have read that there is an version 0x32.
       
      anybody who has this version, and can provide me with a download link?
       
      Attached my firmware configuration. Any suggestions for any updating? Think most is up to date?
