    Brocade ICX Series (cheap & powerful 10gbE/40gbE switching)

    I replaced my fans with Noctua NF-A4x20 FLX fans. They're a bit pricey but damn near silent, I have it sitting next to me and I can't hear it at all. The switch does report the fans as failed tho.

    P420i and SSDs

    Thanks for the heads up. I've scored a few DL360p's on ebay for cheap and was looking to turn them into FreeNAS boxes for vmware san. I got the passthrough enabled but haven't had much chance to do real stress testing.

    [SOLD] Mellanox ConnectX-3 MCX354A 40/56Gb Dual Port -- $15/ea shipped

    The original listing says that there were 31 for sale but the auction sold 14. Might be prudent to message the seller and ask if he's got more.

    Brocade ICX Series (cheap & powerful 10gbE/40gbE switching)

    Not sure if it was mentioned on this thread or not. I'm looking to connect two of these boxes via SFP to Ethernet 10GBaseT modules in order to utilize Cat-6 already in the house. Can anyone recommend some decent bang-for-the-buck transceivers?

    Gah, that's unfortunate. I guess I'll have to be content with measly 1Gbps ;)

    Brocade ICX Series (cheap & powerful 10gbE/40gbE switching)

    Could someone shed some light on my issue? I have a 2.5G GPON OLT module plugged into one of the SFP+ ports. The module will not negotiate a connection unless the port is set to 1G. My FTTH connection is 1.5G, trying to get it to utilize the full connection speed. Is there a way to set the port...

    Powering HP ProLiant SL230/250s nodes as stand-alone

    I can see if I can get a board to POST via a 12V feed outside of the chassis when I find some free time in the near future.

    HP FlexLOM ConnectX-3 Pro 40Gb <$30 shipped (BO) - new: Lots of 10, $200 shipped

    Complete noob on this. What's a STH favorite switch for these? Got about 10 servers I would like to connect together.

    I have a couple of working S6500 enclosures with 8 SL230s. If you need any help getting some readings off of the chassis, let me know

    Another new coin that I mined for fun, talk about a ride.

    Few years ago I mined a handful of shitcoins and had few thousand/million of each. When I got back into mining last year I looked them all up, most of the have completely disappeared. For most the wallet couldn't even find any nodes so I couldn't even check the balance.

    Monero Pricing and What to do with XMR Thread

    Actually, if you look at the BTC/XMR ratio we've hovered around 0.018 for the last 6 months with an occasional spike due to news. It always sells off back to this rate. At least it makes it predictable to trade.
