Found this Listing from Sable?;)

Seems like a good deal for a 2U LGA 2011 r3 barebone.

Has a LSI 9361-8i equviland. 4 x 10GBe Ports 2 Base-t 2 SFP+ and a 36Port SAS 12GBs Expander.

But Only 12 Caddys.

Had a talk to the seller. Better be quik as they plan to Increse the Price, also they do not accept anny Offers jet not even free shippingo_O:

Hey,

We intended to sell one or two and then increase the price a bit. I currently have 10 of these, two 1u of these and two QuantaGrid D51B-2U, however, these are quite a bit more expensive, which is why i have not listed them yet.

I will wait till next week to accept best offers. I will sell the rails seperately @ 50 euro's per set.

Hey, thanks for linking my listing. But for any buyers from ServeTheHome, if you are looking for a brand new in box server, this is not for you. They have been used for testing and have been moved around a bit. Look at the eBay condition before you buy. These are from EMC so some information is diffrent from the intel website. I believe all information in the listing is correct so let me know if anything needs to be changed.

Also, thanks to Rand_ for helping me gather some information on the servers and included items.

For all users of ServeTheHome i will include a free rials set, so there you go Michathe. (NEW BUYERS: SEND ME A PM FOR THE FREE RAILS)

Ah those nice boxes again.
Wished I had need for them, those are really packed. And surprisingly silent if one does a soft reset after inital power on;)
Power utilization in idle is ~100W with a single CPU if anyone wonders (albeit might be slightly higher on those, measured mine w/o HBA irrc)

I just received my Unit.

I have to say these are preaty nice systems.

  • Bios hase a Password but this can easaly be resettet by a Jumper.
  • One Handle got bend in shipping. Nothing a hammer can´t fix.
  • System is very Quiet on the Acustic fan setting.
  • The Raid Controller has Keys for R5, R6 and Fast Path activatet.
  • Consumes, mesured at Memtest with one E5-2620V3 and 2 16GB Sticks of Ram, around 125W. 98W at Bios.
  • It seems like these Systems, or at lease mine does, have one NVME Backplane installed for up to 4 drives. So it schould be Possible to install some NVME drives in this system by adding a PCIe to U.2 adapter.

System flashed without issues to the latest Intel firmware.

I did not find enithing different to a normal Intel box yet. (Only the Handels)

I would hope that the Supermicro nvme adapters like the AOC-SLG3-4E4T are compatible... :)

They don't ? Let me check that.
Edit: Seems u r right. A bunch of the slots (in my similar box) are 16 physical but probably only 8 electrical, never noticed.

But then you still can do two 2E2T's (in x8's) which still would be cheaper than any intel hba I think

And the 2E4R is without PLX chip... would be great if they run (for their cheap price) but not sure. Can you test that?:)

Hm, but then at least the x16 card might work, regardless of Intel or SM... or not :/


Edit: The PLX chip'ed ones will not need Bifurcation in the first place so still might work in a regular slot

Just did a hard Bios Reset and the issue is gone. Weird.
I have also modified the system a bit to get a 12 Bay 3,5" DAS connected:)
