    I've got a brand new Gen8 still in the box and under warranty (bought a few, this is a spare).

    PM me if you're interested, maybe we can work something out.

    Will it be possible to fit a 5th hard drive (preferably a 3.5) in the odd bay?
    like i did with the previous model.

    Are there any low profile graphic cards that would play HVEC/H265 content with HW decoding?

    Not on a MicroServer. You are going to need a more powerful processor to handle that (besides the GPU).

    The new Polaris and Pascal cards support hardware decoding but you'll have to find the software that uses it. The RX 460 is probably going to be the perfect little HTPC card (also supports HDR and HDMI 2.0b) - the card is only being announced within the next few days though so a little while still until you can actually get one.

    Yeah. Was hoping for one of the new generation releases from NVidia and AMD to be produced the in the low profile form factor.
    This will extend the live of my little workhorse for the next few years.
    I will have to replace the MB with something compatible otherwise, and that is going to be a pain.
    Even worse is the thought of rebuilding/replacing the server completely.

    It's time to retire the MicroServer, maybe repurpose it as a dedicated NAS and get yourself a proper new front end PC. All the current GPU's that have hardware HEVC decoding require at least a 6 pin for power and besides that none of them are half height required by the HP.

    I sold my MicroServer and built myself another "server" on a budget around a Intel G3258 and it works great with x265 files.

    My N40L is still running strong, and Havn't killed any hard drives yet. My Gen 8 on the other side seems to dislike it's ram.

    Yep, I think it might be happening to me as well... unless it is just coincidence and the age of the drives.
    but I have also lost about 5 drives.

    Can't afford to lose anymore drives to best to shut it down and look at resurrecting old PC as a NAS

    If the drives are as old as the server in question, it's probably time to say goodbye's lol

    The 4TB drive that "died" is back again after restarting the server and SMART scan gives no errors. Weird.
