Did you ask them to upgrade your CPU to i5-1240P ?First of all, thanks to all the participants of this thread.
With this thread you made me want to buy a unit!
Oh so it was, after many months of following this thread and the nuc n100/n200/n305 threads I finally made my decision.
#Start of the adventure#
I contact CWWK and let him know if what is said in this post is true, then I ask for confirmation regarding the included fan, the double adapter for the m2 SSD and other details. Once I have decided, I proceed with the purchase, paying with PayPal, around 400 euros.
So at the same time I also order the on Amazon the Crucial RAM CT2K16G4SFRA32A 32Gb Kit (2x16Gb) DDR4 3200MHz CL22.
I already had an unused SSD at home, a 256GB Samsung Gen3 taken from a broken laptop.
Summing up: (For Info, I live in France, Europe)

- 11 October --> purchase and payment (it will ship tomorrow, it was already too late)
- 12 October --> cwwk provides me with tracking, from yuntrack, the package leaves from Mainland, China
- 15 October --> the package arrives in France and is disposed of
- 20 October --> I have the package at my house

The power supply (DAJING unit, as many users here) may not be the highest quality but it weighs 400 grams, I don't think it's really poor.
Of course I would feel better with a DELTA, that's clear. I will buy a more efficient power supply in the future.

The package arrives in excellent condition, perfectly packaged as indicated on this post:
I proceed to update the BIOS kindly posted by fta with the config recommended in this post ( 06-08 BIOS):
So with the configuration settings BIOS of this post:
The score with the stock bios was just over about 15,000 points on passmark.
The score with the fta's bios and recommended settings was more than 19,000 points on passmark.

Very satisfied with the resulting.
Temperatures looking good, considering that now i only have the stock fan from cwwk.
I'm thinking of adding some heatsinks to the hottest areas of the motherboard.
I will better evaluate which areas are the hottest using the heat gun.
I will definitely add heatsinks to the nvme ssd.
In the future I will reinstall proxmox on a raid1 ZFS, definitely get two different 500Gb minimum SSDs.
My files are too large to upload here, so I'll link to a gdrive folder
15watt of power consumption in idle with opnsense and 2 eth port ON
What will I install on Proxmox?
For now these are the plans:
vm - Opnsense (always online)
vm - Win11-tiny (always online)
vm - kali Linux
vm - ubuntu
lxc - pihole (always online)
lxc - wireguard (always online)
lxc - home assistant (always online)
