Excepting best offers of 10 percent less than the buy it now and greater that 25 percent of the buy it now.
Works great! Just checked to see if it still works as of 3-20-2020. Last had Ubuntu Server on it. Now has Windows Server 2016 installation stuck on it, but No Operating System is included on disc or any media except on the Operating System Stuck on the device.
Make sure you know what you are buying. Make sure you have enough amperage or ups wattage to power this with a full load of enterprise routers, enterprise switches, enterprise firewalls, and at least a NAS along with a the server. Not recommended for a full load of 3000 watts or less with 5 enterprise routers being at least 1U each needing at least possibly 80 watts each, 4 enterprise switches being at least 1U each needing at least 525 watts each, 1 enterprise firewall being at least 1U needing at least 90 watts each, 1 NAS being at least 1U needing at least 90 watts, and this server as the server will need a maximum of 1400 watts at full load and 350 watts x 2 at half load.
I paid more than I thought I did, so I had to fix the spreadsheet and the listing buy it now price, but the 10 percent and 25 percent are still in effect regardless if any of you think it's enough of a discount and that it raised the price of the minimum buy it now and maximum buy it now or best offers. Also, I know this is 2011v2 hardware with only quad core 2609v2's and only up to 1TB of DDR3 instead of lets say 2TB to 4 TB of DDR4, but it's not that bad because did any of you who were around during the 1980's or 1990's or even the early part of after the year 2000 actually imagine that any computer hardware would be this good. Anyway I know I'm still going to get made fun of for my prices, but I can't afford to sell it for less and I'm being very generous with the 10 to 25 percent off with the buy it now or best offer, which I need to make close to that to be able to afford to complete my build for the 1U server I need.
Therefore, please work with that and make sure you don't buy if you can't work with this builds configuration to get it to where you want to considering Newegg has Hitachi 3TB SATA hard drive with 3 year to 5 year warranties for about $50 or Hitachi 4 TB SATA with 3 year to 5 year warranties for about $69.00 or Hitachi 6 TB SATA hard drive with 3 year to 5 year warranties for about $109.00 to complete up to a RAID 60 configuration if you desire a complete RAID 60, which I'm sorry that I wasn't able to provide up to eight 2 TB Seagate SSHD's for the buyer to have RAID 60 because I need four of the 2 TB Seagate SSHD's I bought for each of the two Mid 2012 Mac Pro's I had and Newegg wouldn't sell me more than eight of the Seagate 2 TB SSHD's because I'm not a registered business yet. I know that either way I'm getting made fun of by a bunch of forum junkie's and some experienced forum users who have no idea what problem I had that caused me to end up with this build too, but anyway I'm still going to get by and I hope whoever helps me out by buying this from me as well as that can make use of it ends up doing fine with what I'm offering.I know I'm being generous enough too as most of you are insane to think $264 processors should go for $4 instead of whatever they cost after 10 to 25 percent off everything too, so whatever drug your doing are not helping you see reality and yes I know things depreciate, but not that much and not that quickly either. I know most of you would sell something like this at full price or higher at 33 percent profit too, so don't complain about my buy it now price with my 10 percent to 25 percent off or best offer, even though I know you will and you'll still make fun of me because you expect me to depreciate everything I sell to practically no charge as always and I don't have to do that just to sell to a bunch of cheapskates that don't know what they are buying. Also, I don't see computer hardware getting much better than even this anytime soon anyway and any news of it is poorly provided.
