CPU too slow. How do I upgrade to a better CPU?
You buy another one. I believe this model only comes with this CPU and one of the Xeon CPUs.

not sure why you'd buy this over a Lenovo TS140 that's on sale all the time...

I'm looking for a lower power security camera server...this CPU should be able to handle the load nicely.

It has a bit smaller size and the CPU is more than adequate for a lot of people's needs.

I also can't find a definitive answer on if the TS140's onboard NIC is Intel. The Dell's certainly is, which would be a serious advantage.

Only drivers listed on their site are for Intel LAN...

If you're looking to run Blue Iris, also consider paying $150-$200 for a 3rd generation i5 system from Ebay, like the 3470 or 3570. More than double the power of this system, and cheaper.

This system will work harder to do the same amount of work as the 3rd gen i5, so even though this CPU has a lower TDP, it will likely not use significantly less energy than the i5 would.

At work I run a 24 camera Blue Iris setup on an i5-3570. It sits at around 50% CPU usage, and pulls around 70 watts from the wall.

the TS140 with i3-4130 is faster and has been cheaper... it's not a minimal difference, it will matter. for the same TDP, why wouldn't you want a better CPU cheaper?
http://www.cpubenchmark.net/compa...cmp[]=2015

so by "smaller size" you meant 1'' taller, and 0.58'' shorter?
TS140; 16.70" x 6.90" x 14.75"
T30; 17.12'' x 6.89'' x 14.17''

also, not sure why you think having an Intel NIC is a "serious advantage" for a home server... because it isn't, at all. but here's the NICs in my TS140, second NIC is a PCIe card.
"
lspci | awk '/[Nn]et/ {print $1}' | xargs -i% lspci -ks %
00:19.0 Ethernet controller: Intel Corporation Ethernet Connection I217-LM (rev 04)
Subsystem: Lenovo Device 30a5
Kernel driver in use: e1000e
02:00.0 Ethernet controller: Intel Corporation 82574L Gigabit Network Connection
Subsystem: Intel Corporation Gigabit CT Desktop Adapter
Kernel driver in use: e1000e
"


it's really not a great deal when there are other, better, options... not sure why you're defending it.

Already have a BlurIris setup with 4 camera on an Intel X5570 setup. Runs at 10% utilization but the system itself (gfx card, etc) pulls down 150watts. Might go to 6 cameras but that's about it so this would be plenty for my needs. Was thinking of doing Qnap with their surveillance software but their stuff is so expensive (8 bay unit).

The X5570 is a bad system for Blue Iris. No QuickSync, so no hardware decoding means the system is going to work really hard any time the console is up.

I just checked EBay and there's a Dell Optiplex i5-3570 system with 4GB of RAM and an OS for $140 shipped. Frankly, you'd be crazy to choose the system in the OP over that system, but it's not my money!
