For users who is going to add extra RAM follow this link to crucial.com link http://www.crucial.com/usa/en/com...eredge-t30

Crucial is owned by Micron, as a matter of fact I ordered their 4GB Model ECC UDIMM 2400 MT/S CT9904376 and it worked perfect.

Their 8GB model I believe is identical to the one T30 shipped with which is :
MTA9ASF1G72AZ-2G3B1ZI Crucial.com model# CT9904392

Dell is selling the same RAM modules with DELL branding on it for 40% more, do not get ripped off and do not downgrade your RAM modules to non ECC modules just because they are cheaper (courtesy of pervin_1)

Sleep wake does in fact look supported. You will have to downgrade to bios 1.0 (which will also give m.2 drive access).

Advice in the above video is to upgrade bios to fix intel amt vulnerability and then downgrade to 1.0 to get sleep wake and m.2 access (you don't lose the amt fix).

None. It has internal trays and wiring for up to 4 3.5" drives.



No. It can support and is wired and ready for 4, though you would have to give up the optical drive because the board only has 4 connectors. Or get a raid controller.

May be obvious to some, buy may want to add that it doesn't come with an OS license; would need to acquire separately...

I know people ask this all the time, but maybe it's different with the v5.

Would this work as an office desktop machine? Obviously it's geared toward server use, but if we threw Windows 10 + Office 2016 + Chrome + Adobe reader on this, would it perform just as well as an i3 6th gen with 8G ram?

The reason I ask is because those business systems usually run about $400.

That's a v3, but you get the idea. It will perform slightly better.

Yes it would preform as good if not better given it will have 4 cores instead of 2. However, you'll need to add the OS which is extra $120 a license for Windows 10. If you already have a copy of Windows 10 free, then this would be a better deal, if this kind of system is what you're looking for.

One thing to consider when using this as a desktop. The Xeon processor does NOT support SLEEP. It's either on 24x7 or off. So you won't get the normal power savings associated with a Core processor which can sleep.

That being said, $329 is a really good price for this. Sure, it's not $299, but hey.

Will this hardware support full multi-VM? I've been looking at AMD, but considering this one instead.

Maybe a screwdriver for the caddy.

Depending on what "server" means, and depending on what you mean by "simple home", it may have many uses.

Yes the chip has VM extensions support. However the box is small so you could not run many VMs concurrently.
