Hey GZers!

 

 

 

I'm in the market for another 1U server, I'm finding my IBM System X to be quite loud. Anything similar available? Looking for Christchurch and surrounding areas. All servers considered (no, seriously. My bar is low. Anything quieter than the 7042-CR4 I have or something like a HP 1U that doesn't need any fans plugged in to operate would be great). The quieter, the better!

If you want "quiet" you need to move to 2U

 

1U will never to silent unless you make modifications.

 

 

Anything DDR2 era will sound like a tornado

Sure, 2U is okay also. the System X server really is a tornado haha. Anything up to 4U pretty much I'll consider, although at that point I would prefer something in more of a desktop FF. Still, anything goes, as long as it's quiet

Depending on your budget there is the HP Microserver(s) here: https://www.geekzone.co.nz/forums.asp?forumid=77&topicid=248301

 

They're nearly silent and can be upgraded with 16gb ram and an Intel Xeon CPU. Also got dual Gigabit Ethernet and IPMI.

I think if I could choose any FF it would be rackmount > microserver > desktop in that order. at least then if they are mountable I can put them in a cage when I get around to it

Just a little update:

 

 

 

I'm looking for anything 2U and above, or if the BMC allows fanless operation, 1U also. Anyone got anything that would fit that spec?
