Master server PC - Mark Stega - 05-28-2019

Someone posted a small form factor server for use as a master server. I have searched for way too long & can't find it. Does anyone remember what this was?

I remember some discussions as well, but can't find any. I think Mykel (znelbok) posted some of them, so you might PM him to look at this thread.

Some good options here:

I am leaning towards this one with 8GB of RAM: https://www.amazon.com/Fanless-x5-Z8350-Graphics-Desktop-Computer/dp/B07HCDHPNQ?ref_=Oct_BSellerC_13896591011_4&pf_rd_p=61d8b861-c4fd-531a-abc4-b6a30d07028a&pf_rd_s=merchandised-search-6&pf_rd_t=101&pf_rd_i=13896591011&pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_r=K16M1QPWXYPCENED395W&th=1

I think the most recent one was the Atomic PC that was temporarily out of stock on Amazon: https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B07N298F2B

Dean was right. Here's Mykel's thread: https://www.charmedquark.com/vb_forum/showthread.php?tid=10813

I ended up with the Intel NUC (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07C837CDM/ref=dp_prsubs_1) but with 8Gb RAM and a 512Gb SSD for $275; That seller is no longer offering that superb price nor, it appears, is anyone else.

It's working perfectly out of the box.

Thanks all for the suggestions & Russ for finding the original thread.

You can also save some money by purchasing the mini PC without an operating system, especially if you already have a Windows 10 license.

Same here. Intel NUC NUC6CAYH. Thing is great but I wish I could have gotten everything to work in a virtual machine.

What is keeping you from using a virtual? Mine is running on one. Serial ports and all.


RE: Master server PC - Dean Roddey - 06-12-2019

The Aoetec Z-Stick wasn't playing well, which creates a virtual serial port.
