I don't have any more information besides this link

https://www.serversdirect.co.uk/p/12...-x-non-hotplug

But looking at the pdf that's in the page it seems, for the UK anyways, that there's 50 GBP off both the Gen 8 and the Gen 10

Careful with Serversdirect cash back deals, my claim was turned down by HP on the basis the product didn't originate in the UK.
Serversdirect response was to send product back for a full refund at my shipping expense.
They were difficult to deal with, not full of praise for HP for their stance on this although it is a good product.

I was in the same boat but then I don't see it being an improvement over the last gen depending on what CPU you have installed. The best gen10 shipped CPU isn't as good as the best CPU you could drop into the last gen and you lose LILO. Ummmmm

Anyone after a Intel E3-1220L V2 @ 2.30GHz CPU for their Gen9?

Yeah. Very disappointing when I read the reviews. I'm planning on going rackmount for the next server anyway.

I ended up with a Dell T20 Server (midi tower size) when a member here offered one for sale, slapped a E3-1225 V3 and a lot of RAM but it never really got used as a server and its now my main PC.

So that still leaves me looking for a MicroServer as the old desktop I use as a server is getting less reliable but I don't really see Gen 10 as making it onto my shopping list. Hopefully there will be some cheap Gen 8's available second hand.

Does https://www.kustompcs.co.uk/componen...-power-supply/ look like one that would fit?

Never too much power... You'll end up with a few additional plugs too. But https://homeservershow.com/forums/to...or-microserver suggests it works fine in N40l.

I bought from LaptopsDirect using one of these cash back deals.

HP refused to pay the cashback on the basis the product sold to me originated outside the UK. LaptopsDirect dragged their response out finally offering a return for credit.

In the meantime, I had built up the device and it was in service, wasn't worth my while returning. Beware!

Last time I'll use LaptopsDirect.

I've got mine years ago from Dabs, but confirmed with HP it will qualify for the cashback...

There is 200W and 250W versions as well - SS-200SU and SS-250SU. The latter is sold by Scan: https://www.scan.co.uk/products/250w...y-sata-hdd-fdd But you would have to confirm it comes with required connections.
