HP ML10 V2

Looks nice. I expect a newer Microserver to basically be this but jammed into a smaller box and less PCIe slots.

 

Quick specs for the ML10 v2

Service manual for the ML10 v2

 

Pentium G3240, Core i3-4150 or Xeon E3-1220v3

Intel C222 Chipset

1x PCIe 3.0 x8 but with a x16 slot

1x PCIe 3.0 x8

1x PCIe 2.0 x1 but with a x8 slot

1x PCIe 2.0 x1 but with a x4 slot

4x DDR3 unregistered ECC DIMMs - Maximum 8GB per DIMM for a total of 32GB

2x SATA III 6Gbps on HD bay 0 + 1

2x SATA II 3Gbps on HD bay 2 + 3

2x SATA II 3Gbps for ODD bay 1 + ODD bay 2

2x Front USB2 ports + 2x Back USB3 ports

350W PSU

 

The drive bays are the usual small ML kind where it is a bare drive without a caddy and you need to take off the front panel and then unscrew a little access hatch to get to it.

 

It has iLO4 so the built-in graphics will be the Matrox G200 clone again. The optional GPU they list is a nVidia Quadro card that goes into the PCIe x16 slot which means no remote console for that.

 

There is only a single fan like the Microserver. There is big plastic baffle that covers the motherboard and directs the airflow over a big heatsink with what appears to be heat pipes. You should be fine to upgrade the CPU though as the Xeon listed has a 80W TDP and there is only a single heatsink part number.

They did add a second 5.25" bay and only added .2" to the height, but they did make it almost 4" longer.

It looks like you have the option of 4 LFF drives or 8 SFF drives.

what's with the extra long pcie slots? almost like false advertising. unless you have the document in hand, 

you are not sure what you are getting when you go to put a card into one of them.

It isn't that unusual for a slot to be sized larger than the actual number of PCIe lanes connected. Some motherboards just have the end of the PCIe slot open so the rest of the card edge just dangles in the air.

 

They do only advertise it as having 4 PCIe slots so don't specifically say the number of lanes. What is misleading is that they say "PCIe 3.0, up to 4 available slots" in the specs sheet when only 2 are PCIe 3.0 and the other 2 are PCIe 2.0. They're more accurate in other material like the ProLiant overview datasheet though.

The 8 bay option is odd. It is briefly mentioned in the datasheet but everywhere else it lists 6 drives as maximum. There are only 6 SATA ports inside anyway so you'd need a P420 card to run it which has 8 internal ports. The P222 can't as it splits the 8 ports between internal and external.

 

No SD slot in the ML10 v2 like the old ML10 when the Gen8 Microserver does have one. There is 1 internal USB2 port though.
