EU [UK] FS: Supermicro SC836 SuperQuiet Server / X9SCL+-F / 32GB DDR3 ECC [SOLD]


Oct 6, 2015
Looking to get rid of this soon as.

This is pretty much a perfect FreeNAS file server and has been serving as such reliably in my homelab.

Consists of a SC836 case from circa 2008 or so which had everything overhauled a few years back with 4 PIN PWM SuperQuiet fans (FAN-0104L4), a SuperQuiet 920W PSU and Noctua NA-FC1 fan controller.

It's extremely quiet and consumes ~65W (no drives), ~135W (all drives).
Sound levels are 38dBA at idle.

Note this item ships with a SAS1 SAS836EL1 backplane so can be picky with drives. It's a perfect candidate for upgrading the backplane though.

  • Intel Xeon 1220L V2 CPU
  • Supermicro X9SCL+-F Motherboard
  • Supermicro SAS836EL1 Backplane
  • 1x 920W 1U Redundant Power Supply (PWS-920P-SQ) - case does support dual power supplies but due to the extreme cost of the PSU and the lower power consumption I'm using just one
  • 6x PWM SuperQuiet fans
  • 32GB Crucial ECC DDR RAM (4x 8GB)
  • 1x IBM M1015 / Flashed to LSI 9211-8i

  • Boxed
  • Screws, cables and accessories included
  • Also includes 2.5" hot swap caddies and brand new spare hot swap fans

Can you get a SAS3 backplane for this? EDIT: Answered my own question. Looks like you can.
