    How common are bad SATA cables?

    I've ran into a number of bad cables. If you see any dma or bus errors, that is typically due to the cable.

    Looking for replacement of power hungry MD1000

    Consolidate to a set of mirrored 10TB drives and ditch the DAS. I'd also replace the X8SIL-F/L3426 as more modern hardware will be much more power efficient. X10/E3-12xx v3 is a good middle ground for cost/power efficiency.

    Forced Unit Access, plp

    In my experience, yes. The enterprise SSDs I've worked on all consider the write complete and safe once it hits the cache. A write with FUA set will return complete at that time. Rotational media is a different story... not enough time/power to flush the write cache on power loss, so FUA in...

    Supermicro X10SL7-F $63

    No gotchyas really... just update the SAS, BIOS and BMC firmwares to the latest. Also, this board will only take unbuffered ecc memory.. so keep that in mind. ECC udimms carry a bit of a premium and are harder to come by. Non-ecc udimms or rdimms won't work.
