    I am parting with my 'audio workstation' due to changing to a more gaming orientated system instead. Its a HP Z820 in excellent condition and for those that didn't know, this is a professional class workstation designed to run and work without any hiccups.

    Specs as follows:

    HP Z820
    • 2 x Intel Xeon E5-2667v2 8 Core CPU's (16 cores / 32 threads total) 3.3Ghz base speed, 3.6Ghz all core turbo.
    • 128GB 1600Mhz ECC Registered DDR3 Memory
    • Integrated LSI RAID Controller
    • 2 x 1TB Samsung 850 EVO SATA SSD's (I ran these in RAID 0)
    • 1 x Seagate Barracuda 4TB HDD
    • 1 spare drive bay
    • Nvidia Quadro 4000 2GB Graphics Card (2 x display port out)
    • 1125w PSU
    • Thunderbolt 2 Expansion card
    • DVD Multireader/writer
    Will be supplied with a clean install of Windows 10.

    This system is a powerhouse and has been used for the past 6 months as my audio workstation (pro tools, reaper, foobar music collection etc). However it must go as I wan't to fund a lower profile gaming orientated build instead.

    I also have the thunderbolt 2 add in card installed as this has been connected to my Focusrite Clarett 8PreX interface.

    Thanks for looking

    Hi, Tom I presume,
    I am looking to buy an HP Z820 for my photography and video work - Did you purchase this machine new or was it originally a refurbished machine. I have been looking to buy a refurbished one from KelsusIT in Croydon and their pricing is very competitive to yours for the same machine.

    Not having actually seen one of these machines, in the flesh so to speak, my only concern is how noisy it would be as it will be used in the lounge as I have not got a study in my house. Your opinion would be valued on this subject.

    What have you reduced the price too?

    Thanking you in advance for your reply.
    Graphicalman.

    Hi there, I have indeed owned this machine from new which is a fair few years now, I actually used to work for HP so this was made available to me through a highly discounted internal purchasing scheme for some members of staff at the time.

    I can confirm that the machine is virtually silent during operation, the airflow design inside it has been optimised to make sure it operates efficiently in an office environment and not like a windtunnel!

    I have reduced my price to 1400 from 1500, however I have plenty of room for negotiation on that price as I want this machine gone quickly to help get me some spending money for a trip to the US.

    If you have seen a refurbed machine elsewhere for a similar price, bear in mind that I also have a pair of 1TB SSD's in this unit, those I added a number of months back so have not seen much use at all.

    I will ping you a message and maybe we can work something out.

    Tom
