    Lenovo Thinkserver TS140 70A4000HUX I have done a more in-depth review of the Xeon processor version of the TS140. This Intel i3-4130 is an only slightly less capable version of that one. This 4th generation i3-4130 is at least equivalent to a 3rd generation Intel i5 processor in terms of cache memory, and computational power.At the price I purchased this i3 version of the TS140 ($235) it was a no-brainer purchase. These TS140’s make great data servers for a SOHO environment if you add at least 4GB of ECC UDIMM RAM to get the dual memory feature. I have made really great HTPC’s for clients starting from this base TS140. If you compare the price to add a SSD OS drive and a HDD for storage, you still will be well under the price of buying the equivalent home or office PC. These TS140’s are just priced right.This server version came with only 4GB of RAM and no Drives. There are two empty 3.5″ drive bays with cheap plastic drive caddy’s already installed. While there are plenty of 15-pin SATA power connections (6 total) available, the server only comes with one 7-pin SATA III cable to connect up one drive. Make sure to have the extra SATA cables before you start your build or it will slow you down.The included O.D. is a CD/DVD reader in full height configuration. The 70A4001LUX version with the Xeon processor has a low profile CD/DVD reader/writer in the top 5.25″ bay and a fan cooled 3.5″ drive bay in the second 5.25″ bay. This 70A$000HUX version has the second 5.25″ bay empty. Both versions have an empty 3.5″ bay available.There are 5 SATA III ports available on the motherboard. The O.D. takes up one of those ports. There is a USB 2.0 port available on the M.B. which could be used for the O.D. if you get a 7-pin SATA to 6-pin USB 2.0 adapter cable. I used the included SATA III cable for the O.D. and installed four hard drives (SSD for the OS drive and HDD for the storage drives) to fill up the bays.There are lots of ways to configure this server if you want. It all depends on your preferences.Key features to be aware of for all the TS140 servers:1. Do NOT use Buffered or Registered Memory Modules. The will not work.2. Both ECC and Non-ECC Memory Modules work as long as they are NOT Buffered/Registered.3. The BIOS has no adjustment for RAM clock speed or CAS Latency (CL). Use PC3-12800 DDR3-1600 modules with CL of 11 or, PC3-10600 DDR3-1333 CL9 modules only. If you use higher performance modules (like PC3-12800 CL9) in these servers, they will default to a lower performance state (slower).4. Use 1.5 volt modules, not 1.35 volt modules.5. Lenovo does NOT recommend Kingston RAM memory modules. Their tech support and forum specifically state that Kingston is NOT recommended. The tech support person I talked to directly said that they have had a lot of compatibility issues with Kingston. Go to the Lenovo forum for further discussion on this issue.6. The RAM that ships with Lenovo TS140 servers is either Hynix or Samsung.7. I have found that G-Skil Ripjaw X modules worked.8. On-Board Remote access is NOT available for the i3-4130 70A4000HUX versions of the TS140. You have to upgrade to the Xeon processor version to get that.9. The PCIe slots are either 2.0 or 3.0. They are NOT compatible with older PCIe 1.0 cards – no matter what they say about backward compatibility. Be aware that you may have to purchase new PCIe cards for peripherals and your old cards may not work in these servers.10. Only Intel or Lenovo branded Gigabit Ethernet Adapter cards work in the TS140’s. The i350-T2 and i350-T4 in particular that are Intel or Lenovo branded are the only ones I found that work. Older Intel cards and other Branded (Dell) versions didn’t work for me. The machines would not even boot up with alternative cards in them. I have not tried other manufacturers cards like SYBA.11. Make sure to go to the Lenovo website (lenovo.com) to download all the drivers onto a USB flashdrive BEFORE you start your installation. Especially if you intend to install Windows 7 or Windows 8 OS. The included driver CD only has limited drivers for most Sever OS’s. The video, audio, and ethernet drivers are particularly sensitive to driver version. Get the newest and avoid the hassle up front.12. On Board RAID is available with the Xeon processor version. There seems to be a software raid version available for the i3-4130 version available to download from the website. I have no direct experience with this since I have built Media Servers out of these units and use other severs for data server and backups. There are references by other users on the various forums where they were not able to initiate RAID 5 arrays with this 70A4000HUX version of the TS140.In conclusion, This Intel i3-4130 makes a great media server, HTPC, or light data server. It has all SATA III busses,…
