    UK HP MicroServer G7 N54L / 4GB ( servero.co.uk ) £69

    I think it might be "not enough power" issue, try another molex connector from the PSU or replace the PSU, I recall something like this with LTO drives when they can't pull enough power from 12v. I think I just lucky with GREENs drives and low power SAS adapter.

    Every motherboard can use UEFI, via coreboot for example. All Chinese X79 motherboards have UEFI APTIO 4 firmware. What do you need it for? NVME boot?

    POWEREDGE C6320 Node 150-200 usd

    I bought one of these for 50 usd I believe. It still laying on the shelf. It will be royal pain to make it work, even to power on. Every connector is proprietary, not a single management port or standard PCIe exposed. I recall I have found part numbers and pinouts on OCP site but you have to...

    Canada [NEW LOT] ASROCK X7P-MB REV. 1.02 LGA3647 FPGA C626 SR3HH

    Should be regular Xeon, because of C62x chipset, and Phi has C61x chipset. You just need to mount narrow cooler on it. Of course I might be wrong.
