Got given one of these yesterday, its got 4Gb RAM and a 500Gb HDD.

Its a socket 1156 and has a Xeon X3430 sat in it..

 

Anyone used one of these boxes before, are they any good compared to say my Gen 8, the chassis is bigger obviously but thinking maybe bang it up in the attic or somewhere out of the way and use it purely as a mess around box...

Yeah thats a damned sight newer than the one I have, I might use it to faff with some of the 2016 preview stuff tbh, dont have any need for it so might as well use it as a test rig...

Nice server. That X3430 would be roughly similar to a quad core version of the dual core G1610T that is in the basic Microserver Gen8. It won't be blazing fast but it should still be decent if you're not running anything too resource hungry. Can't argue too much if you got it for free :D

Yeah, also got my old spare gaming rig tho so might just get rid of the server and bang the gaming rig in the attic on a PLA and have a play with it, its not quite right running stuff in a VM...
