    I picked up one of these exact spec on gumtree. Very fast with i5 and ssd. Includes a drive bay for another drive too. Form factor is ideal and next to no fan noise. Not a bad price for what you get at all

    Can you fit a gpu in? rx580 or gtx1060 perhaps?

    • +4 votes

      No. May support Low-Profile (LP) graphics cards, like a GTX1050Ti, though.

      rx580 or gtx1060 perhaps?

      Only low profile video card up to RX 550 or GTX 1050 Ti will fit.

      Can you fit a gpu in?

      OptiPlex 9020 has a PCIe x16 next to the PSU, and it can only fit a single slot video card. If you have a dual slot video card, you can only put it on the PCIe x4 slot. You're better get the HP EliteDesk 800 G1 which can take dual slot video card on PCIe x16 slot, for the same price.

      •  

        I had an hp elitedesk 800 g1. It blew up on me after 6 months. 4 red led beeping sounds of death. Replacement power supply didn't fix it. Must be the mb. $60 for a second hand mbto fix it, for it to maybe blow up again after 6 months…no thanks. So I got a techfast system from ebay. Hopefully it will last me for a few years

        OptiPlex 9020 has a PCIe x16 next to the PSU, and it can only fit a single slot video card.

        Do I remember correctly that the previous model, the 9010, does allow a dual slot video card?

        I wonder why the swapped the slots for the 9020?

      •  

        There is a made-for-china 1050 Ti that is both low profile AND single slot; It is made by Aetina, and called the "M4-P107mDP".

      Thanks for the info guys, much appreciated.

      If you don't mind open the case maybe you can use one of those rise cards or adapters. https://www.pccasegear.com/products/38562?PPC=Y&gclsrc=aw.ds...

      Hi,

      I have a Optiplex 9020, looks the same as this one, but with an i7 4770 CPU, running a gtx 1050. This one to be exact:
      https://www.gigabyte.com/au/Graphics-Card/GV-N1050OC-2GL#kf

      Using it as a media PC to play 4k content via HDMI to my TV, with 2x SSD drives (had to buy sata power splitter cable for $2 off ebay for the second hdd)

      Never had any power or over heating issues (QLD sunshine coast ambient temp). This one will probably generate a little less heat with an i5 CPU vs my i7 CPU

  • +1 vote

    They will fit a low profile card. But note that the power supply is not rated for high power devices and may cause a failure in the future. Maybe…

    This one is a slightly better price ($233) and comes with Windows 10 Pro…

    How hot do these i5 run?

    I got the i7 4770 and it reaches 90 degrees while gaming…..

    • +2 votes

      Your CPU should definitely not be running that hot. I have an i7-930 (1st gen 45nm tech vs your 4th gen 22nm tech) which has a TDP of 130W compared to your 85W. It used to run very hot, so I wiped and reapplied the thermal paste and it fixed it to within normal limits (70degrees). You probably want to do the same.

    •  

      Given its age have you considered re thermal pasting it up?

      I bought a 9020 a few weeks ago,
      didn't do extensive testing but after a minute of prime95 it hit 80/90C (can't remember sorry, it ran hot) but it maxed out the fan and also throttled the i5's boost back to 3.2GHz.

      • +1 vote

        I thermal pasted it 1 yr ago, I probably didn't do a very good job since it was my first time doing it.

        and you're not meant to use Prime95 on haswell chips

        •  

          Thanks for letting me know! I googled it and yeah looks like it.

          I have an older 790 sff optiplex, and the heatsink seems way bigger than the 9020, but I haven't done proper testing or anything

  • +1 vote

    This one has slightly better spec: https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/HP-ProDesk-600-G1-SFF-Intel-Core...

    Also you can just make offer to get at least $20 off. No code required

    •  

      Do you know how many HDD's this will take, and does it have a PCIe x16 slot for a discrete GPU ?

      •  

        U need to ask the seller or pm meb when it arrive tomorrow or thursday i will let you know

      •  

        It can fit 2HDD and 1 SSD and DVDR. The mobo only has 3 sata ports though so you need to remove the DVD rom in order to run the 3 HDD

  •  

    Can someone enlighten me on a suitable set of RAM that is compatible? I know these machines are very picky with ram but im happy to buy brand new if i know what to look for. Thanks.

    •  

      really simply DDR3 ram. 10600 or 12800. They aren't that picky. For the sake of keeping them the same, buy identical ones to the ones that come with the pc when you buy it

    •  

      Thanks guys. I've tried reusing old sticks from different optiplex machines without luck even though the specs are the same so it's possbly due to the difference in brands.

    It can be a great pfsense box but it will definitely be an overkill - they can do a lot more advanced stuff than home router :-)

    Or you can use vSphere to run multiple OS.

    •  

      Drivers will be an issue for vSphere most likely. I couldn't find NIC drivers for consumer hardware when I was setting up a bare metal hypervisor.

      I got one. 32gb ram, intel dual NIC $25 on eBay.

      running proxmox. onboard NIC = maintenance NIC for proxmox

      dual intel nic is LAN and WAN port, goes into an 8 port tplink smart switch that does vlans. running opnsense. overkill sure but i can spin up as many vm's as i want also

    Whats everyone using these for? Plex servers?

    • +1 vote

      Makes for a plenty good office PC, or with a low power gpu, a light gaming rig. Or yeah, as an HTPC too.

    • +1 vote

      I'd recommend the USFF for a plex server. I use one of these with two drives and it's a perfect solution

      I transplanted cpu/mb into another case and run openmediavault with a PCI 4 port sata card for raid.

      So alongside being a great NAS it is also now running Plex, Sonarr+Radarr+Lidarr+Jackett, Nextcloud and also a pihole ad blocker.

      When transplanting, you need to get a couple of adapters. A power supply adapter converts a standard atx power supply and the fan adapter means you can replace the fans/cpu cooler. Both are on ebay for a few bucks.

      Otherwise everything else fits and works in an atx case.

    I bought a 2ndhand Surface Pro 3 (i5 4200U 8GB 256GB) with broken screen on eBay for $60 and mounted behind a monitor as a compact PC
    I know it's lower cpu power but for the price different and size I think it's a very good idea :p

    •  

      Thats brilliant!!!! How did you find that bargain lol

      • +2 votes

        keep an eye on ebay auctions. SP3 with broken screen is pretty cheap atm usually under $100 including shipping
        the worse the external condition the cheaper it'd go obviously
        mine was advertised as 128GB but it came in as 256GB lol
        You might want a bidding tool to make winning easier and cheaper (I use GIXEN)
        You'll need some patient and research to know the prices and specs of the tablet, some is only i3 and some is i7

        Good thing with this things they are AIO, with speakers, wifi, bluetooth, cameras, mic and even battery in case of power outage lol

      •  

        One like this is a good start https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/333185014433
        slightly lower spec but you might need to remove the display because of Phantom Touches
        This one comes with charger. Mine didn't, had to pay extra $20 for one

    •  

      How do you search for chpest broken screen ? And what do you use to mount it?

    •  

      What other similar tablets should I get if the surface pro 3 is not available?

      • +1 vote

        There could be many choices, if you come across any laptops, Windows based tablets, even macbooks with broken screens or bad physical condition with a functioning system that could lower the sale price.
        Of course you'll have to look at the hardware (CPU, RAM, HDD etc) that's enough for your need, keep in mind that laptop CPUs are designed for low power usage compare to a desktop CPU. Some laptops use full size cpu but cooling will still be limited
        There's always a risk that there could be other hardware issues so do this at your own risk

        Here's the original listing that I won from fyi. not sure if you can still view it.

    I got this one https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/HP-Z230-Workstation-i5-4690-3-50... last night for $230 and its a got a 4690 in it, it doesn't have hdmi or ssd but I've got a 1050ti and 240gb ssd to chuck in when it arrives.

    I'd like to mount my Optiplex 9020 SFF under a table. Has anyone encountered a suitable set of brackets or similar to fit it?

  •  

    hi everyone, very newbie here in term of tech…

    can anyone kindly advise me if the spec of this unit enough for me to run adobe photoshop and lightroom?
    had read comments above, and the more i read, the confused i am especially on the video cards and the space profile.
    i assume i should have a reliable video card in order to run adobe applications ?

    also, from my research i still need some WIFI card, video card, and extra ram, which i need to install, am i right?

    can this run fortnite? I have an old monitor so my son can use it instead of taking over the TV.

      Not by itself, you'll need to get 1050ti low profile or wait for the 1650ti

  • +2 votes

    Would this be good as a cheap audio workstation to run Cubase and VSTs etc.. With an external audio device… Also can you add firewire as I have an old audio device on FW.

    Not for a pro, just for messing about with producing music.

    Thanks

  •  

    Probably a stupid question, but as this doesn't have a HDMI port, would a Display Port to HDMI adapter work to use it as a HTPC to plug into the TV? Or would I need a graphics card?

  •  

    Will this play fornite smoothly?

  •  

    Does this Optiplex fit the GTX1050Ti from the link below:

    Looking to use it as a HTPC, thanks!

    Do these come with a wireless card or is it ethernet only?
