Deal Details

Not as hot as the ~$350 deal I got 2 years ago on the T110, but server deals seem pretty rare these days.

linkadoo [dell.com]

Default config is:
Intel® Xeon® E3-1220v2 3.10 GHz, 8M Cache, Turbo, Quad Core/4T (69W)
4GB Memory (1x4GB), 1600Mhz, Dual Ranked, Low Volt UDIMM
No OS
1x 500GB 7.2K RPM SATA 3Gbps 3.5in Cabled Hard Drive
On-Board Single Gigabit Network Adapter
DVD drive
no keyboard or mouse
1 year warranty

I upgraded my config to the E3-1230v2 for $38.44 which bumps the PassMark score from 6742 to 9051. That is the price/performance sweet spot for this particular deal. Another upgrade worth considering is the 1TB drive for $20 extra.

Starting price is $602.84 but coupon $ZG1V$CLGM6R0Z takes $170 off for a total of $432.84 shipped + options + tax.

Mine will get a RHEV 3.2 install and sit next to my T110 running ESX 5.1

Other stuff
DIMM slots: 4 slots supporting a max of 32GB RAM
PCIe 2.0 slots: Two x8 slots; One x4 slot; One x1 slot

Can you use ESXi 5.1's DPM to control the Dell model?

These T110 II are highly rated. I ordered 5 of these last week in different configurations ranging from $400 up to $900. I sell these with my network bundle to my clients. These servers are perfect for businesses like real estate offices, medical offices, etc. Great value!

Please post your Kill-a-Watt results, normal and under 100% load.
My old T110 has a single Xeon X3440 (95W TDP), 2 NICs, and a DVD-RW, and I'm running ESXi 5.1 from an internal USB key. I dropped in 2 7200rpm 3.5" hard drives to try and get closer to the C1100 1U setup mentioned previously. Here are my quick measurements:

at boot time - maxes out at 1.2A
idle with no VMs - averages 0.84A
1 Win2K8 R2 VM with 2 vCPU and 4GB RAM, idle - averages around 0.88A
2 Win2K8 R2 VMs, idle - averages around 0.92A
1 Win2K8 R2 VM with 8 vCPU and 16GB RAM crunching prime95 64-bit - averages 2.04A

I didn't have time to set up a scenario to churn the 2 local datastores as well.

As a comparison point, the L5520 in the C1100 1U server has a 60W TDP, and the 650W power supplies it uses are 90%+ efficient. I think I grossly misoverestimated (I just made that word up) its power consumption in my earlier post, as it seems to sip slightly less juice than the old T110. No idea where this deal's T110 II falls on the spectrum of overall power consumption, though.

Looking for new workstations for my wife's dental office. How are these vs. Optiplex? Seems the Optiplex carries a longer warranty.

The T110 is a server. If you are looking for workstations stick with the Optiplex.

What's the wattage used per kill a watt in those scenarios? Is 240 watts about right for the fully loaded machine?

Can I get this setup and change the processor to i5-3570K
Possible?
Highest non-xeon processor you can use is an i3-2100

I'm at work so can't verify at the moment, but I think 240 watts is good estimate.
