    Seeking Updated Firmware for HP DL160 G9 ProLiant Servers

    Where are you going to be flashing it from? Linux, esxi, Windows? Amazingly we still have a dl160 g9 still on our support contract. Apparently I can get my hands on just about every other download for this series, but not the BIOS? That is super odd. I guess we declined that for some reason.

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

    I ran mine until the clock drift caused issues since it was doing firewall duty. Battery replacement didn't solve. So I chucked into recycling. wasn't worth the time to troubleshoot it

    Looking for Fan replacements - Custom build using old SuperMicro chassis.

    I removed the fan wall in mine and wedged 3 120mm fans into the space using the PSU cage as the other point. ziptied everything in place. The fanse are NF-P12. so not whisper quiet. But moves plenty of air over the drives and the cards in the system. The drives make the most noise anyhow.

    2U chassis with hotswap SATA/NVMe for H12SSL

    I took a different route putting in Noctua on my 826. Just cut out that dimple on the fan cage. Then I can reuse the fans easily down the road. Never crossed my mind to cut the ears on the fan though.

    SM CSE 826 sweet deal

    Ehh, I bought the last one I think. I've been eying these to put another system together for messing around with from other parts, and this brings me down to just needing a cpu at this point. Or use my older e5 v1 board

    New Fujitsu D3348-B23 Motherboard (LGA2011-3), $200 OBO ($140 accepted), Ebay

    Pretty sure I have some stability issues going on with mine. Could be the free old quadro card from work. Free for a reason perhaps. it doesnt hard lock, but it gets a bit odd. nothing in the esxi logs as to what is going on either. Temp levels look good. Guess it time to "borrow" for testing a...
