I purchased this a while ago with the intention of running two windows VMs, each with dedicated CPU cores, GPUs and RAM, to test a dual client gaming setup


This has not come to fruition as part time work and study has not left enough time or money free to continue this


The server supports all Xeon E5-26xx v0 and v2 CPUs, has one heatsink and CPU (CPUs and heatsinks can be purchased for a very reasonable price on AliExpress and eBay)
According to the HP specsheet, it also supports up to 128GB non-ECC RAM, 384GB Registered ECC RAM and 768GB Load Reduced ECC RAM


Specs are as follows:


HP ProLiant ML350p Gen 8 tower server
1x Intel Xeon E5-2620 v0 CPU (2.0GHz, 6 core, 12 thread)
1x empty CPU slot
64GB DDR3-1333 Registered ECC RAM (8x8GB)
HP Smart Array P420i RAID controller with 512MB RAM and back up battery
Internal bootable SD card slot and USB port
4x Gigabit ethernet ports
1x dedicated iLO4 ethernet port, seems to have an iLO4 Advanced license but I cannot guarantee this
3x PCIe 3.0 x16 slots (1x CPU 1, 2x CPU 2)
1x PCIe 3.0 x8 slot (1x CPU 1)
4x PCIe 3.0 x4 slot (2x CPU 1, 2x CPU 2)
1x PCIe 2.0 x4 slot (1x CPU 2)
1x DVD-ROM drive
8x Hot-plug SFF (2.5") drive bays, no caddys included (3x blanks)
1x VGA output
4x front, 4x rear USB 2.0
2x 460W Redundant PSU
4x redundant fans with louvres


Photos can be found here


Looking for $800 or near offer


Pickup in Palmerston North, will ship at your cost and risk if need be, but would prefer not to

Unfortunately no! The seller I bought it from didn't even have any caddies, let alone drives. If you believe the price isn't suitable without drives, feel free to make an offer, and I know caddies can be bought rather cheap from China on eBay or AliExpress

just FYI, its not worth as much as you may think.
Due to its age, zero official HP support for Server2019, no carepack so no HP support & no firmware updates


Im writing off ML350 G8 , G6 etc , as clients upgrade their servers due to SBS2011 being end of life.


So, pouring more money into it could just be $$ wasted .
And some HP Raid controllers can be VERY fussy as to what drives you put in caddies , so keep that in mind if buying caddies & drives separately .


On the other hand, theres a world wide shortage of new severs & server parts at the moment . So you never know .
