I've watched a couple and they are excellent. Really nice.

 

I'm curious why you decided to use the bracket to mount the SSD? You could just put it at the top of the case behind the ODD blank if you are just using one SSD.

Thank you!

 

You are absolutly correct. When I bought my used Microserver a year ago I got the bracket. I don't use an SSD in my server so the bracket hasn't been used. Since we used an SSD for this build we decided to put it to use. But just putting it in the top would have worked just as well :)

      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 
      My HP Proliant Microserver Gen 8 won't install HP Tools when I have running HP Smart Update Manager. 
      even when I have trying to install via Intelligent Provising, Windows Server 2019.
       
      Se image below 🙂 That's I missing.. ;-(
