N40L awesome deal, my new toy

Update:
 its quiet enough to live in my living room, but it is currently in my basement, when I installed Nexenta it was sitting on my dining room table about 2 ft from my ears, and it was barely noticeable. It has a single low rpm 120mm fan,unless you somehow get a bad fan in yours, it should be fine.

HP ProLiant N40L Ultra Micro Tower Server System AMD Turion II Neo N40L 1.5GHz 2C 2GB (1 x 2GB) 1 x 250GB LFF SATA 658553-001 






  • Cache Memory: 2GB
  • Memory Type: DDR3
  • MAX Memory Capacity: 8GB
  • Memory Features: 2 DIMM slots Unbuffered ECC
  • Model #: 658553-001
  • Item #: 
  • $249.99
    The system last night, from NewEgg.com, along with the 8GB of ECC memory  an extra $60 but still less than best price of the server. When I ordred mine the deal was for $299 and included a free 2TB hard drive, not quite good now, but the server is still an excellent choice, Nexenta Community version booted right up on it, had to install via a usb cdrom or dvdrom. Other wise there is a sata port for the for Optical drives and a power plug but the process of fishing the cable through the tight case and since I was only going to use it for installation I grabbed USB dvd-rom and gave it a try and it worked, smooth as silk the entire process. I will be working on adding a a second 2TB drive to the one that came with the system, and post benchmark numbers soon. I will try and do a better job keeping my blog up to date.

I was toying with getting one over Christmas because they were on a cashback scheme in the UK. But I kinda decided not to because of mixed reports about the noise.

Can I ask, how noisy is yours? Would you put it in the living room? Or is it definitely a brute that has to live far away from human ears? :)
