Great little home server, big price drop.
- $100 with coupon VM2V8L3TTMZPLD

Been going back and forth on Xeon vs Pentium configuration of the T20, as my system will start life as a glorified windows home server running windows server 2012 essentials, and the dual core will take care of my streaming/backup needs, but like the flexibility of adding cpu and ram and turning it into an esxi rig later.

As I was shopping saw a new -$100 coupon code for the base config, making my choice easy. I can get the xeon 1225 for $200 street price if I need to upgrade later and still be $100 ahead of the curve.

$332.00 - $33 savings - $100 with coupon VM2V8L3TTMZPLD = $199.
Free shipping, but tax for some of you. Out the door to me in Texas at $216.


The detailed info says the coupon is good until 3/7, but the offer appears to be off and on so if you haven't already gotten in, keep checking in. (Thanks XMED)

very nice little unit. 290w Power supply, C226 mobo room for growth. Can't find info whether it supports vt-d, chipset is suppose to, I doubt Dell has crippled the BIOS...unless they want to reserve for higher end units. Of course, you'll need Xeon for vt-d

processr worth 50-60, mobo case powersupply and ram is worth 150 for sure

According to Intel, the G3220 does not support vt-d.

Couldn't get the extra $100 to work on the Xeon. Is that out of the question?

Buy the pentium, sell the CPU and buy a (better) Xeon E3. The e3-1225v3 doesn't have hyper threading enabled, depending on your use of the server I'd rather go headless with an e3-1230v3 (no video in the chip) or faster with the e3-1245v3

hmmmm........ $200 seems pretty good for this... solid momputer choice..

This thing + a 6570 OC ($10) or a 6670 OC ($15) and a 256gb Evo ($140ish)

And another 4GB stick $20..

pretty decent as a collective..


I'm hesitating on the 3mb cache though.. hmmm....

This is a small server, there's barely enough room to put 4 drives and you want a raid card?

if anyone is thinking of getting a HP micro server, or any of their servers, please read their new evil firmware upgrade policy.

it sucks, and is bad enough to get me to stop buying from them.

HP is now charging customers for firmware updates if their server is not under warranty or a service contract. It is supposedly limited to Proliant servers only (for now).

Link [pcworld.com]

They backtracked a little on the "security and safety" issue, but still plan to implement the policy. However, HP has always been a douchebag of a company, so this probably isn't a surprise to anybody.
