[Official] HP S01-pf1013w Owner's Thread and Review

I run mine with 32GB RAM (I have 3 of the units for the Proxmox cluster) - zero issues. This is the kit that my units have inside - G.SKILL Aegis 32GB (2 x 16GB) 288-Pin PC RAM DDR4 2666 (PC4 21300) Desktop Memory Model F4-2666C19D-32GIS

Managed to delete my post, so lets try this again:

I’ve been looking for a low power & low cost Plex, blueiris & pf/opnsense solution and happened to come across this thread and great review. Ended up picking up one to experiment with before going all in and buying multiple, and am running into trouble while trying to get the S01 fully operational in linux. Has anyone been able to get the ethernet to work properly in any linux distro? I’ve tried ubuntu, unraid & alpine with all having the same result.

I’m able to pull a DHCP IP address, but have no network connectivity (can’t ping, can’t do a DNS lookup/dig, etc). I’ve tried both the r8168 and r8169 drivers in linux with the same outcome. Networking works fine in Windows, so it’s not a bad card/motherboard. Ironically, the WiFi card works fine in linux so I’m using that for now but much rather have a wired solution and don’t want to use one of the PCI slots just for linux networking.

I use them for Proxmox (which is Debian underneath) hosts with zero issues…

I’ve had a few strange issues, but not that one. Better return that unit while you still can.

Zero issues with my 2 boxes running Unraid and PFSense. With PFSense I added a secondary NIC

The G6405 is a perfectly good CPU for Plex or pfSense. It’s nice that it also comes with the perfect amount of RAM and storage.

If you think the price is worth it for your use, I’d go for it. In the US, it’s not what I would call a good deal, though.

Just pulled the trigger on one of these to upgrade my aging docker box, running around 30 or so docker containers including Plex, HA, etc

FYI, $109 from VIP Outlet on eBay, refurb (HP S01-pf1013w Slim Desktop Celeron G5900 3.4GHz Intel UHD Graphics 610 4GB RAM | eBay)

Maybe a dumb question, but better safe than sorry…

I got a Corsair Vengeance RGB 32GB Kit for free, since I already updated the CPU to an i5 10400, I would like to also update the RAM.

Can I use that Corsair Memory on this little HP? I primarly concerned that the extra power needed for RGB could damage the motherboard?

Hi all, quick question for everyone, I purchased this nvme drive (https://www.amazon.com/SSSTC-Internal-128GB-CVB-8D128-Package/dp/B09S7M44H4) but it’s not recognized by Windows or Linux. After some research, it’s because that NVME drive is a “B+M” drive, which appears not to be compatible. So I"m going to return/sell that drive and purchase this one (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07XHMB5GP/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1) instead. I’m pretty sure it’s compatible, but wanted to check here!


I can finally happily confirm that the Coral card works great in this box! I removed the wifi card and installed the Coral in its place. I can also confirm that it works great inside an LXC container running Frigate! The following discussion thread was a huge help in getting this up and running:
