Dell could create a good market by selling a no-OS Poweredge geared toward the home NAS user. Just make something that takes 4 sticks of RAM and will hold at least 6 3.5" drives. I am done with buying their rebadged desktops and trying to shoehorn drives into them.

Same deal comes up quite a bit - search for the same title and you'll see it. Here's a thread back in Feb with some good insight/comments: https://slickdeals.net/f/13866527-dell-poweredge-t40-tower-server-xeon-e-2224g-8gb-ram-1tb-hdd-no-os-349?attrsrc=Test%3AElasticsearchIntegration%3AElasticsearch_rev2&src=SiteSearchV2_SearchBarV2Algo1

I have one, and it is the same price every few months going back at least a year. Runs quiet. What I don't like about it is they purposely disable the m.2 NVMe slot, and it's not as easy as downgrading the BIOS to enable it. You have to get a flash programmer to load the workstation version of the BIOS to enable it. If you're looking to use the m.2 NVMe slot out of the box, this isn't it. Seems these days the low end "servers" are just crippled workstations in which they've disabled features like the m.2 NVMe slot and S3 sleep.

Yup, I bought a 16GB Kingston Unbuffered ECC DDR4 off of eBay for $100 to add to the existing module to get to 24GB. I was only going to add more 8GB, but the price for the 16GB module was not much more than the 8GB for Unbuffered ECC, which is what this server comes with.

I see one on eBay currently for $95 if you search "16GB Kingston ECC Unbuffered DDR4"

It's for unbuffered ECC (buffered/registered ECC is plentiful and cheap on eBay but does not work with this server).

I picked this up off ebay for about the same price. Great compact server but I had to buy a few things to round it off.

I replaced 8GB memory with 32 GB non ECC memory
Bought 2 hard drive caddys because server did not come with them
bought additional pcie stata 3 card and extension power for drives

I plan to run 2 ssd's and 4 x 3TB WD Reds (from old NAS) using unRaid

So far it is going great. Happy purchase.

I have a couple of these T40's. One thing to note is that I tried to put in an PCIe NVMe U.2 adapter into it. It only works in one of the PCIe slots. It won't work in the other. I've tried two different PICe adapters on both servers. Just an FYI that if it doesn't work for you, try the 1st PCIe slot. Boots up fine off the PCIe drive.

FYI, this was the adapter. https://www.startech.com/HDD/Adap...EX4SFF8639

Overall very happy with the servers and I use them every day.

Do the adapters cause any performance degradation vs on-board m.2 NVMe slot? Or are they simply pass-throughs with no chipset in between, so performance should be the same?

I have not noticed any issues. I assume it's the same PCIe bus that it connects to. There are no chips on the adapter.
