    Xeon D-1541 Quanta storage servers on ebay

    Has anyone found a source/replacement for the 3.5" drive caddies? I see none of the current listings have them. I was thinking of buying a couple more just as compute nodes since I have one with all drive caddies intact but hoping to find more drive trays regardless.

    Xeon D-1541 Quanta storage servers on ebay

    Yup I have the wrong ones then - I have some Kingslide rails that look like what I would see in a Dell box... except I ordered my server back when these were first talked about... good luck getting replacements now.

    Xeon D-1541 Quanta storage servers on ebay

    Can you send pics of the rails? I bought mine months ago - and I haven't racked it yet and wondering now if I got the wrong ones.

    Bump - still time before Christmas!

    Xeon V3 16gb 1U servers $325

    That price is a bit steep. For that I bought the motherboard, IO shield, Xeon E3-1241v3, SM active cooler, and 32GB Unbuffered ECC for my home server.

    Multiple 1G/10G Brocade ICX7150-C12P compact switches for $150-$225

    Would pair nice with the Juniper SRX300 I have had sitting around and a few Ruckus APs with the unleashed firmware. I need to stop looking on here!

    A bunch of Juniper SRX300 firewalls dumped cheap

    Looking at Juniper TAC - the latest recommended version of JunOS for the SRX series is still 18.4-R3 which was linked in one of the previous posts here and I can likely upload again if needed. I just took mine off the shelf to upgrade and start looking into it myself. As for the licensing - I...

    Anyone have a problem with BitDeals Tech?

    I have had 4 orders with them by now. First two were great, second two were during the COVID period and not-so-great. Granted, the owner made it right - but I was seeing drives failing in my home array as I was waiting on these and really starting to sweat! Their issue came from the sheer...

    Dual Xeon-D

    They're definitely seeing the value in these... I paid $165 shipped for mine which I gave to a friend to repair when it showed up with a torn off M.2 connector - and others on here got working and complete ones for around $180. I am willing to go around $180-200 but not needing any repairs at...

    HPE EC200A Xeon D-1518 'hybrid server' on ebay ~$150

    That could be nice for a low power always-on server for my house... if I could find the storage expansion to go with it as well.

    For the price mentioned above I'd be down for at least one - possibly two. But I just realized we are still talking about an EU order and I am in the US... my apologies!

    Dual Xeon-D

    Update to mine - looking at a few places to send it in for some hot air rework and then get to work. Found the CMOS battery holders, but hitting a roadblock getting the identical M.2 connector. Does anyone by chance know which Amphenol part would usually be the “tall” connector?

    Dual Xeon-D

    Pads look to be all there - and surprisingly still shiny. Looks like it was a poor soldering job from the factory if it pulled off that cleanly! Only piece remaining is a piece of the mounting for the M.2 connector that usually anchors/grounds it to the board.

    Dual Xeon-D

    Well I received a refund - no return shipping info. Guess he’s calling those boards a loss. I cannot solder something as fine pitch as the M.2 connector - I wonder if I can find someone that can and have them rework the board for cheap.
