Those are all original parts from HPE, and this system platform about 2000 RMB Yuan. If you only need simple model 4 LFF HDD cage x2 , it could save half total price to 1100 RMB yuan.

I use E5 2650L v4 CPU (QS version) ,TDP is 75W. 800 Yuan ( 120 USD)
two 16G Reg DDR4 memory about 600 yuan (90 USD)

And I try test the HBA card with 4Kn SAS 12Gb HDD, so I get alot of HBA/Raid card. they are expensive thing but I get good deal about 400 yuan each.

Lenovo 430-8i with SAS3408 (LSI 9400)
