If you just need the Server this would be a better deal.
Original CTREAT20 post
Better deal than what? $269 + shipping ($11.50) recently.

Of course not the best price ever, well but if you are in need…
Can you put Windows 10 straight on this or does it have to have server os? Been holding out for a decent deal to add another microserver, currently sporting a n40L with 5 x 4tb and ssd as windows primary and 16gb ecc. Anyone have ideas?
It's just a PC essentially so no reason Windows 10 shouldn't work but you'd be best to just check on driver availability. I doubt there will be any issue.
The graphics is weak though since it's only intended for use as a server.
Yeah I have a sapphire 2gb in the n40L with hdmi out. Works a treat.
is that sapphire a HD 7750? been trying to find one that will fit on my n54L fast enough to do some ethereum mining like a HD 7770 but doubt will fit
It's the sapphire Radeon HD6670
Essentially to get hdmi out as the other pci slot has a pci to 5 x usb3.0 ports
I bought a NVIDIA 730 for that server, I haven't installed an OS yet myself.
You should look into ESXi
It is the psi in the rds between the drn and xuz.
OK I'm out…

Can someone help out and advice what RAM is required from futu_online store. If I wanted to buy some extra RAM with the microserver?
The one comes with the server is a ECC 2G DDR3 RAM, better to stick with ECC RAM if you want to run it as a NAS server.
I cannot find any ECC RAM on FUTU as well, but shoppingexpress has one on special now:
Also, I am selling the original 2G ECC RAM comes with this server, PM me if any one interested.
Thanks for the headsup on this :)
I figured it out and purchased it
Mu have the g7 n40l as I am just transferibg everything over to the g8
I also have 2x 4gb ecc ram Kingston that should work also in the g8
Running freenas 9.3
I'm trying to justify getting this, but can't quite do it just for a NAS.
Is there anything stopping me putting a TV Tuner card into this and using it to record digital TV all day?
It looks like i can (there's one slot), but there appears to be no audio and lousy video.
I'd play anything on the main PC anyway - it's really just to record given i can have it on all day and it won't interfere with whatever i'm doing on the main PC.
I've used a TV tuner card on the PC before and it was a pain - used to interfere with everything else i was doing.
I'm just not too sure how hard this thing would be to set up & how hard it would be to access to set what i want to record - can i do this without requiring a dedicated monitor on the thing?
Also, given i can set up 1+1 protection, i'm thinking of putting standard disks in instead of the more expensive reds. Should i be shot for thinking this?
Finally can i run Win7 on this? This suggests i can't, but it's an old article.
Any help appreciated.
this video is a great tutorial on g8. You can install win7 instead of hyper V and use ahci instead of raid, and ignore the rest configuration. then you get a normal PC you familiar with. I installed win2012 so I can't comment on win 7 as 2012 has the best drivers.
You can remote to your sever using iLO if you don't have a monitor. to use the advanced feature of iLO, you probably need an advanced license key. this is the lowest price found on eBay.
or try a usb tv tuner
I've not done it but don't see why not. It's a good idea IMHO.
I use mine for recording TV, but use a different device for playback.
I am replacing my old N36L with the Gen8. I have a PCI Dual DVB tuner and a Usb Dual tuner that I will be moving from N36L to new server. I use a web interface with an EPG to choose what to record and then microserver records it. I then stream the video to devices on my network.
I tried using 3x USB dual tuners on my N36L but it wasn't grunty enough. I shared the tuners out to my MCE7 HTPC using Dvblink. The HTPC does all the recording. Dvblink can be used via a frontend like kodi so that it does the recording locally on the server as well.
Thanks guys - that helped me nail it.
I'll probably do something like this:
* Use SSD card for OS (prob Win7 as i'm familiar with it).
* Buy iLO as suggested.
* Stick just standard disks in - 2x to start.
* Get 1-2 dual tv tuner cards - maybe pci or i'll just get USB ones as suggested.
There goes 2-3 months of my free time, but that's ok.
Im installing ESXi on mine. Then having a media box, a backup box with crashplan installed and a sophos firewall to control the rest of connections so i can send out a vpn to the rest of my devices on my network.
Go WD Reds if you intend on keeping it on all day.
I just set up mine yesterday. I am using NextPVR for recording, with a Hauppauge PCI recording card.
I have an SSD for OS drive and 4 storage drives.
If you are planning on using a windows server OS (I used 2012 R2) you will need to add BDA support for your tv card to work.
old thread I know, but thanks for posting this. I wish I'd seen it
Yeah, only $10 more than this which seemed to put OB into meltdown.
Equivalent deal pops up now and again - i'd say you'll have one within 4-6 weeks.
Waiting for similar deal to pop up, my HP ProLiant N36L just died..
