    These are ACTUALLY good machines.

    We still have a bunch in use at my workplace, and I'm part of the IT team.

      They really are bullet proof. I have seen 100s of them and not a single dead one yet. Also nice and quiet, decent on power and even though they are old now as long as you have 8GB of RAM and an SSD they run really well.

      •  

        Could I ask exactly what ram you have put in this machine? Need to
        Update mine and don’t know what it takes
        Thank
        You

    WIN10 Home or Pro?

      I think we have seen both come through - I don't think we can make any promises here so you should assume it's home.

      Shouldn't matter at the moment, they ALL activate.

      Click 'I have no Key' during install, and it'll activate anyway.
      If you're privacy paranoid like I am, but are still stuck with Windows, try the 'N' editions.

      Done on 4 machines recently.

    •  

      Doesn't matter, if you know your worth you will be installing Enterprise on it anyway.

    Is that free shipping to metro? Or only ships to metro because Townsville 4810 is showing up as

    No shipping options were found for TOWNSVILLE CITY 4810.

      Not sure what's up there. Just check out with "TOWNSVILLE" as your suburb, that works and is free shipping.

    Am I able to put a LP gtx 1050 on these?

    • +10 votes

      You can technically put a 1050ti low profile card in this, my sister has been running this setup reliably at decent FPS for around 3-4 years but there are a few caveats:

      • It will only fit in the 4x PCIE slot therefore bottlenecking the card
      • It's a tight fit so airflow isn't that great.

      If you are just after 4k HEVC the GT1030 is cheaper and fits and runs perfectly.

      If you are after games then the 1050ti will work ok but there are probably more suitable systems to use it with.

      There's a lot more discussion about this stuff in our previous deal if you are interested: https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/505905

        I put a Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1050 Ti OC Low Profile 4GB video card into one of these for my son and it plays games like Fortnite really well. Cheap gaming PC.

        •  

          @Ge3ks I’ve just done the same thing but ours is still occasionally running fortnite slowly. It came with a Samsung 4gb of ram, would we need to upgrade that?
          Could I ask what ram you use?
          ThAnk you!

      •  

        It's a tight fit so airflow isn't that great.

        Very tight, 2cm max. width.

      This is actually the last Optiplex you can put a 2 slot Low Profile card into. The 9040, 7040, 7050 + all have the graphics card slot 1 down so you can't fit a 2 slot cooler on it. GOD KNOWS WHY!?
      I put a 1650 into one of these I built for my girlfriend. It runs The Witcher 3 on Highest Graphics (Hairworks included) at 1080p really nicely. Would make an excellent media box. She mostly plays The Sims.
      Only downside is that high performance low profile cards are kind loud, noticable at idle. You can't beat the physics of shitty ~40mm fans.

      I've got some kind of GT1050 Ti in it and its been working fine for at least a year if not more. Use it as a HTPC but the graphics cards is for playing multiplayer / local / single player steam games.

  • +5 votes

    Are these a good choice for a media server? Most of my Linux ISOs are 1080p.

    •  

      It Depends on how many hard disks you want in your media server. These SFF machines only have room for 2x 2.5" drives or 1x 3.5" drive within the caddy and most media servers I would assume you would want multiple 3.5" drives.

      • +2 votes

        IIRC they have 4 SATA ports though, right?

        So since they don't need to be mounted, you'd get away with 4x SSD's double sided taped in there :)

    • +1 vote

      The motherboard only has 3 SATA ports on it. Some computers come with 1 HDD and 1 DVD from the factory, and those only have existing sata power cables for those 2.

      •  

        This is correct - the motherboard only has 3 sata ports.

        The varient that we usually have (and this latest lot) has a caddy in the hard disk spot that can hold 2x 2.5" drives. One is populated by the SSD and one is empty. It also comes with a double sata power adaptor so it has one sata power spare. To add another drive though you will need an extra sata cable.

      •  

        Still makes for a sizable raidZ1 array. Booting off a USB.

        Still good for a home user.

    •  

      I've been running an i3 version for about 3 years and it has been rock solid. Running Plex and used for torrents etc. Great units. We have heaps at my work and the only issue I've seen is some faulty fans on the front that cool the HDD, not a big issue.

    I want one of these for Blue Iris but think I should go 6th Gen Intel at the very least.

    •  

      I have one if these running Blue Iris with 7 cameras.

      Very reliable. RAM sits around 35% and CPU at 55%.

    These have a single VGA and two Display Ports. So a lot of people would have to get a DP—>HDMI cable/adapter. It's a minor inconvenience/extra cost but it's best to be prepared for it.

  •  

    Can these handle 4k displays @ 60hz?

  •  

    I use these at work and am starting to feel their age, though I'm not sure if it's the hardware or enterprise bloatware.

  •  

    If you upgrade the SSD then you'd have to reinstall Windows right?

    • +4 votes

      Yes but they install windows pretty quickly (under 10mins) and most have the windows key integrated into the bios which makes it even easier (some may have a sticker on the side, it depends).

    • +1 vote

      You could copy old SSD to new, and then expand the filesystem to fill the new ssd.

      But for a new system, easier to re-install the latest ISO image.

    •  

      I believe higher up in the comments they've stated you can fit 2 X 2.5" drives so keep the current one for windows and add a 2nd SSD?

      •  

        Better still, keep the existing SSD for software, and add a few TB of HDD for media.

  •  

    No option for a larger capacity SSD this time?

    • +1 vote

      The last lot we got a good deal on but they had spinning disks. We didn't think people should use them with spinning disks as they are slow as **** so we offered an upgrade. This time around unfortunately our cost price has been higher and it's a bit of a pain to offer lots of options.

      We might do it again in the future but unfortunately not this time around. We do have a limited number of 240GB SSDs available here: https://clearanceguys.com.au/product/240gb-bx500/ if someone wants to DIY it.

    Any bulk discounts available? ie for 5-10 units

    • +2 votes

      I could offer $5 off each unit on purchase of 5 units or more but you'd have to buy right away because we only have 8 remaining now and then I would refund $5 off each one bought.

      Next time we have a deal I'll make sure to include a bulk purchase option.

    Can I add two monitors (multiple displays) in "extend display" mode to it - One with DVI and other with display port? or do i need adapter?

    • +2 votes

      The machines only have 2x display port and 1x VGA output so you would need a display port to DVI adaptor for one of them unless you have two display port monitors.

    Only 4 left now. If you miss out please sign up for our mailing list at the bottom of each page - we'll send a notification when more stock is available. Also sign up if you are interested in any of our other clearances, we've got a hardware store clearance coming up with screws / irrigation fittings and what not coming up soon which will have many things new in retail boxes 60-90% off RRP.

    Edit: Out of stock, thanks everyone. We'll try to have all these sent out on Monday. We do have a spare system available which we'll put up some time monday and I'll post here so long as all the other systems pass our testing / cleaning process.

      Find your local auction clearing house.
      For example, mgs.net.au has a PC auction once a month and there are always dozens of these boxes for sale. Saw about forty of them sell this morning for around $140 each.
      What's better is that you can get the i7 4790 version reliably for $240.

    I'm really surprised on this company. this company holds antiquity for 5~6 years lol and this is good price too.

    Superb little machine. We've now got three of them so the kids can play Minecraft and my wife can play Planet Coaster. They work really well, and putting a 1050Ti in one of them really helps.

    • +1 vote

      how much did the 1050Ti set you back? they've gone up in price from 160 to 230 :( surely these little gems played a part in this rise

      •  

        Also keen to know!

        • +1 vote

          We got it about two years ago it was, I think, about $210. This was from Centre.com. I looked just the other week and they'd gone up to $240 approx. Looking around for a cheaper one, they were all around that price, if not higher. They're not ultra powerful cards, and I can't see them being used fro crypto mining, so I'd say the demand for putting them into these little machine is almost certainly a factor.

  •  

    Snagged one of these with Dell keyboard, mouse and Monitor for $40 the other day. Excellent PC for the money! Drop a low profile GPU in here and you're laughing

  •  

    I'm curious… Did they originally come with the SSD? Or added in after? What brand is installed?

  •  

    Hey i know these are sold out but just out for future ref, how would they go as a hub for Plex, im a tech noob and looking for a cheap pc to run as server i have a 8tb hd with content and just need a device to run through

    •  

      For a single or perhaps 2 streams @1080p, you're absolutely laughing :)

      Transcoding more than that might begin to struggle.

      But if your files are stored in a format your device can already play (no transcoding) you could probably get away wiith 3 streams +, until you saturate the network.

  •  

    A bit late, but I thought I'd add that these make a good hackintosh.

  •  

    Yesterday these all sold at mgs auctions for $130~$150 + fees.

    • +3 votes

      If you have the time there are places you can get these cheaper such as pickles etc.. but once you add in buyers premium and shipping (if the auction place even does it it's usually incredibly expensive) then you would end up paying more, in some cases a lot more and that's not to mention there's no warranty what so ever and if they describe something incorrectly.. tough. We provide 6 months warranty with each sale and install windows 10, blow out with air compressor and clean them.

      But yes if you have time to visit auction place and bid and pickup then you might end up a little bit cheaper than our price.

    Would you have any of these without ram and ssd for cheaper?

    One more available but it is missing a rubber foot when in the tower orientation..
