    Bad HD performance. Can it be fixed?

    Says right on Supermicro's website that the M.2 slot is PCIe 2.0 for that motherboard.

    Server design for 12 memory channels per CPU?

    I would expect 1 DIMM per channel, not two. 12 DIMMs per CPU has been available in the 2U quad node systems for a while and there's not room for anything beyond that. Don't see how that will be a problem with DIMMs going up to 256GB.

    Server design for 12 memory channels per CPU?

    24 DIMMs per CPU has been available for a while. 4 CPUs with 96 DIMMs: 8048B-TRFT | 4U | SuperServer | Products | Super Micro Computer, Inc. 8 CPUs with 192 DIMMs: 7088B-TR4FT | 7U | SuperServer | Products | Super Micro Computer, Inc. As for space constraints, Supermicro has had 32 DIMMs in 1U...

    Yes, they're called SAS expanders.

    Supermicro X9/X10 TPM Module (AOM-TPM-9655V) - $1.50 Shipped

    Looks like. Not too surprising as like I mentioned in my original post, shipping is more than the item price at $1.50. They still have a lot of 20 for $30 however: Lot of 20 Supermicro x10D SecurityHardware TPM1.2 Infineon 9655 XenAOM-TPM-9655V | eBay Seems since I posted this, 56 were sold...

    Supermicro X9/X10 TPM Module (AOM-TPM-9655V) - $1.50 Shipped

    I know many here are still running X9 and X10 generation Supermicro motherboards, so, if you ever wanted a TPM module, hard to have buyers remorse for the same price as a Costco hotdog: AOM-TPM-9655V Supermicro Security Hardware 1.2 Infineon 9655 Xen Vmware VM 672042150199 | eBay Last I...

    FS: QuantaMesh 40 x 100GbE Xeon D-1548 1U Switch

    Idle without any OS was about 180W. No surprise given how much power the ASIC, Xeon CPU, and fans take. It's possible that once communication is established with the ASIC after boot, a lower power mode is possible, but I'm not sure.

    Are you using SAS or SATA drives?

    FS: QuantaMesh 40 x 100GbE Xeon D-1548 1U Switch

    No typo on price. It can indeed do line rate. ASIC is good for ~10Tb/s, so it can actually handle more than 40 x 100GbE. It's quite beefy and even has 8GB HBM like high end GPUs (this is separate from the 32GB in the Xeon management system). See: BCM88690

    Linking my NAS

    The NICs are going to have unique IPs and would be on different subnets. You would control which you go through by connecting to the appropriate one.

    I can get you idle power before the end of the weekend, but no DACs on hand anymore unfortunately (or NICs for that matter).

    IBM S822LC 8335 Power 8 2U Server

    Is this your first time dealing with a POWER based system? If so, you're in for quite the project. Operation is very different from anything x86 based. Looks like your firmware is corrupt or you have hardware issues. Can you get into the BMC? I don't think the PNOR chip is socketed on most (or...

    FS: QuantaMesh 40 x 100GbE Xeon D-1548 1U Switch

    Google Wallet/Zelle/etc preferred as PayPal fees add up. Will also entertain trades since I like new toys and rotate through hardware regularly, though currently not in need of a whole lot. I think my reputation should help: Heatware Local pickup available in Phoenix. Will consider...

    8" Win10 Tablet?

    Base model is half that. Can't really be picky about a niche product.
