This may have been better than any BoC! (Also, I’m definitely a geek SMH)
Used, these go for around a grand on Ebay. So first I got excited about that. Then my mind started thinking “what if I dont sell them and instead build another server to run a Kubernetes cluster in my homelab.” I’ve been pricing parts since.
Hey @ThunderThighs, I purchased 2 of these, and when they arrived, ran them through the Intel warranty tool. They seem to be fake or engineering samples. Also the CPU looks very different from the picture on the listing. I’ve already got a ticket open with CS, but if possible could you alert the other user who purchased these so they don’t wreck their expensive hardware. It appears another user (thebluefox) purchased the rest. However, they don’t seem to have a forum account set up. I know this probably isn’t your job, so if there is someone else I should contact to get the gears in motion, please let me know. Thank you.
Thank you for the info. I’ll let the buyer know so they can do the follow up.
