4GB RAM, and no Hard drive.

Great buy

I have these ts140 and ts440 servers, and they are great machines for plex/ file servers for home and small office.

reliable and fast

Has a proprietary power connect for the power supply. You can fix this by purchasing a $5 cable on Ebay.

Other than that, the TS140 is solid. The 1226v3 is not a great Xeon (the 1230v3 is like 20% faster), BUT it has integrated graphics so you don't need an external video card.

Basically, for a server this is a great deal. If you were planning to buy this then add an external video card for gaming, the integrated graphics on this Xeon won't benefit you at all.

Last, the i3-4130 version of the TS140 sells for $175 average on Ebay. That chip is about 40% slower than the 1226v3, but $175 is more than 50% cheaper than this deal.

I would highly recommend going with a TS140 over an HP Proliant, purely because of HP's terribly policy on BIOS updates (i.e., you don't have the right to get them).

Thanks for sharing!

One thing I like about this TS140 is no proprietary hard drive trays. makes it much cheaper and easier to add in my hard drives.

Oh yikes, the i5 I have my eye on for a server is at ~30 something watts so I'll hold off. Tempting for that price, though. Thanks!

I have a question about ESXi or hypervisors in general. If you were to upgrade the CPU on this to an E3-1231 v3 (no integrated graphics) would that still work? To view the console of VMs, POST, etc, do you need to have a GPU?

Basically planning to upgrade my TS140 with the E3-1225v3 with either a E3-1231v3 (cheaper, no graphics) or the E3-1246v3 (with graphics).

I can't find any information on if hypervisors (ESXi) require xeons to have integrated graphics.

Screw HP. I flashed the bios of my last MicroServer with a bin file I got from some guys Google Drive. I'd rather risk flashing an unknown bios to my server than pay for updates.

Hello sir,

Yes, your system will still work and it does not need a GPU to run VM's and etc.

If I want to add a hard drive tray and connect it to my motherboard (for the 4 additional drives to make 8 total) for this what components do I need? A Google search didn't help me find what I'm looking for.. Is there a guide somewhere?
