I'm looking to buy a gently used Supermicro Xeon-D board in mini-ITX form factor and with active cooling on the proc heatsink. I'd REALLY like to have the -TLN4F variant for 10GbE, but am willing to entertain other offers on the TLN2F variants if the price is right.

These are the boards I'm looking for specifically:

X10SDV-TLN4F

X10SDV-4C+-TLN4F

X10SDV-6C+-TLN4F


These are the less appealing options just because I like the idea of falling back to 1GbE if needed, and/or will swap the heatsink out as needed too:

X10SDV-8C-TLN4
F

X10SDV-4C-TLN2F

X10SDV-4C-TLN4F

X10SDV-6C-TLN4F


Let me know whatcha got and how much you want for it! Am also willing to entertain combos with PC4-2400-T memory options, but no more than 32GB right now...

You know the boards only support 2133 memory right ? (No issues to use 2400 i am sure but it will just run at the slower speed)
I mention only because I am sure there is more 16gb 2133 dimms floating around compared to 2400.

I specifically chose DDR4-2400 because of this post: DDR4-2133 versus DDR4-2400 stream benchmarks using Xeon-d

Also, why would Supermicro list DDR4-2400 as tested memory if something on the board precluded it from utilizing the higher speeds? Am I missing something here?

Nevermind - found this info out myself. Thanks for mentioning this. According to Intel's Xeon-D product brief, the 1541 chip is the only one on my list that will take advantage of the higher memory speed:

Regardless, I'm interested in starting with a single 32GB stick, and the best option for that (right now) is this eBay auction

Sorry the D-1541 does support 2400 (your not missing anything, I did miss that some of the newer chips do support 2400)
Most of the others only 2133 though.

We both posted at the same time :)
Good if you can get 2400 for sure was just thinking 2133 was more plentiful generally.

Thanks for those of you who offered me something here! I've decided to buy new after all, and will have my board in-hands tomorrow. Perhaps more details to come elsewhere on STH.
