September 2022 – Server Parts Pricing Report!



Since 2019, we have been tracking changing parts prices for RAM, SSDs, Hard Drives, and various CPUs. This data is collected monthly, and then shared on this blog.

Currently, all listed prices are from eBay, for used hardware. We prefer to focus on used hardware as these prices change more frequently and this gives a better feel for changes over time

Prices are as of September 5th, 2022

Terminology / Fine Print:

Price — The lowest price to buy this part from a reputable seller in a moderate quantity, price as shipped to the US

↑ or ↓ – indicates if the price has gone up or down since last month

Availability — The amount of listings from reputable sellers

low – 6 or Fewer eBay listings

moderate – 7-19 eBay listings

high – 20+ eBay listings

Noteworthy Changes from Last Month:

We are continuing to notice a slow decline in server hardware pricing on the reseller market, especially across all of the mid-tier Intel CPUs, and some of the high end CPUs as well. The continuous price drops have brought record lows in price, especially for the Intel E5-2660v2 CPU currently priced around $9 on many listings. This is the lowest price we have seen the CPU offered in the past year! Upon the checking of price, the listings for CPUs were in abundance as well, making it a good time to go shopping for parts if needed.

We have noticed a dip in stock for the High End CPU Intel Platinum 8168, and some types of RAM. For the RAM, we have noticed a inventory drop for the DDR4 PC4-3200AA DIMMs that we are utilizing for setups with the new AMD EPYC Milan CPU.

On the other hand we noticed listings of the U.2 Model Intel P3605 NVMe SSD, which means that the drive is back in stock, for now. We have had troubles consistently tracking listings for this drive model and as a result it is hard to gauge a proper pricing average for it. We hope to continue tracking this drive in order to provide better data for our pricing graphs.

As always, please let us know if you want to see more parts added to the list. If you have any feedback on how to make this report more useful, we are eager to hear all suggestions!
