I don't really like water-cooling.
I plan to have something like this. As long as the fan can supply above the required airflow (i.e., minimum CFM), it should be okay. That Noctua NF-A9 PWM can supply 46.44 CFM.
After I get time to access the R760xa (currently occupied by A100 PCIe and H100...
Sam is awesome;
I just received the P100 today and everything goes smoothly. He packaged it safely with a lot of bubble wrap and an ESD bag.
Thank you Sam for helping with my PhD research.
This is for testing only without any heavy tasks. I will add the fan shroud and Noctua fan at the...
I am interested if you are willing to sell one.
This is for my PhD research, and I need to collect some profiling data on older GPUs (P100 and V100) as a comparison with A100/H100.
If you have V100, I would also be interested as well.
I am not sure, but from what eBay has, I am looking for $10/cable for SFF-8644 to SFF-8644 and $7/cable for SFF-8643 to 4x SATA.
This one has SFF-8644 to SFF-8644 1 meter cable for $15, new: External Mini-SAS HD Cable Assemblies SFF-8644 to SFF-8644 30AWG 1-5 Meters | eBay

Just in case you have some SAS cables lying around, I would love to buy them. I am looking for a really good deal to expand my storage in my home lab.

Interesting, so the staggered spin-up will rely on the power pin 11, which should be controlled by the backplane which I don't have.
I thought that the drives will use PUIS and then the controller will wake them up one by one.
Thanks for your reply.
My current workaround is to enable the...
I have 32 Seagate EXOS X18 16TB SATA Drives and 2 Adaptec ASR-71605 on my homemade NAS server.
All HDDs are running the newest firmware SN04 and connected directly to the 71605 using SFF-8643 to SATA cables (no backplane).
Both ASR 71605 are in their newest firmware and set to HBA...
I am parting out the drives of my NAS due to a canceled research project :(.
These are shucked drives and they have been extensively tested prior to shucking (Write+Read test using HDD Sentinel) from Seagate 16TB Expansion Desktop USB 3.0 External Hard Drive (STEB16000400). They are...
Dear STH Community,
I change my mind to build a workstation computer and will move to a more reasonable build for a graduate student. For this Motherboard and Dual Xeon CPU Bundle with RDIMM Memory as a bonus, I am asking for $900 with free shipping using Priority Mail across the US.
Yes, I have that plan as well. I think, at first I will just populate single socket with an adequate number of DIMMs.
Since most of my research is using GPUs instead of CPU, I think I will not spend more in CPUs.
In the future, if I need more CPU power, I may add the second one...
You are right, I need to test it out first to make sure it is working. Maybe, in the meantime I will buy the cheapest Xeon and a stick of RDIMM to see it is working properly before buying more hardware. I will try more research into cheap Xeon CPUs and cheap RDIMM this...
I am planning to build a new workstation PC for my research in Grad School and looking for TRX40 or X570 motherboard (I have not yet decided between two). Since my budget is tight, I am trying to look used peripheral on eBay when suddenly one of the listings draws my attention...
