    I am beginning to wonder if the Gen 8's offer sufficient to encourage one to stick with them ?

    They are larger than the original models plus they cost twice the price of the original models; this for a unit that is basically irreparable once the warranty has expired.

    I have just replaced one of the 'old' units simply 'cos no spares are available. That's a real pisser

    Or outrageously expensive, @ R2000 for a replacement PSU they can go to hell
    SANRAL can suck it!

    Googling revealed that the PSU is actually from a U1 rack, and that generic replacements are available (from overseas) for about R550.

    Goto article http://chrisstark.co/2013/08/hp-micr...er-supply-psu/

    PSU recommended: http://linitx.com/product/fsp-150w-1...15050gub/13062

    A couple of other articles that might be of interest:

    My unit has "pink-lighted", caused by (I think) a surge delivered via the telephone line / router / network connection. The fan doesn't spin up; this could be either the PSU or because the POST test failed due to the network connection (M/B failure).

    I am considering starting the fault-finding by plugging a normal PSU into the motherboard to see what results.

    Can anyone suggest a reason why this might not be a good idea / alternatives ?
