Server Pricing Report – March 2022

Welcome to the third installment of our monthly server price reporting for 2022.

For two years now, we have been tracking changing parts prices for RAM, SSDs, Hard Drives, and various CPUs. Typically this is done monthly, and then shared on our blog.

Currently, all listed prices are from eBay, for used hardware. I may start tracking more new hardware as well if there is a demand for it.

Prices as of March 9th, 2022

Some noteworthy changes from last month:

  • For the third month in a row we have been unable to locate quality listings for the 1.6TB Intel P3605 NVMe (U.2) SSD

  • We have also noticed 32GB DDR3 RAM has little to no listings on ebay at the moment. There were only two listings left at the time of research, with both listings having record low prices

  • In other news for limited availability, we have noticed a drop in listings for a number of SSDs: 800GB, 1.6TB SATA, 1.6TB NVMe HHHL, 3.84TB NVMe, 1.6TB SAS

  • Similarly, the other materials that have dropped in listing numbers are the 12TB and 14TB HDDs, 32GB DDR4 2666V RAM, and the Xeon Platinum 8168 CPUs.

  • The Xeon Platinum 8168 CPUs have also shown a substantial rise in the price compared to previous months.

  • On the other hand we have observed a drop in price for the 16GB DDR4 2666V RAM, 64GB DDR3 RAM, and the 14TB and 10TB HDDs.

  • Overall the availability of aftermarket parts on ebay are widely available for this month, save for the parts mentioned above

  • As always, If you’d like to see more parts added to the list, please don’t hesitate to let me know!
