    What chassis or server do you guys recommend for my backup server?

    I know it's been a while but a while back I picked up a bunch of Compellent SC-040 chassis(which are SC836TQ chassis) a while back for dirt cheap and scrapped the internals. I only buy supermicro chassis these days because of parts availability and the redundant power supply units are easy to...

    MrRackables ZT 2U E5 V1 servers?

    They don't always do that though. It really depends on the chassis and their quantity.

    Intel Xeon E5-2670 Deal and Price Tracking

    I'm not sure you'll see any significant power consumption deltas between the two chips at idle or even at load depending on what you'll be doing with them. The 2670 can be had for 90/ea as well. Anyone care to chime in? I'd be curious if the difference is significant any.

    CoolerMaster Cosmos II $248 on TigerDirect

    it's a pretty sweet case. like for aesthetics alone it's nice, the brushed aluminum panels are pretty sick. but it doesn't have a window so it's not something i'd buy.

    Well first you linked a 2011 v3 board and second he probably is referring to the placement of the cpu socket behind the pcie slots.

    Intel Xeon E5-2670 Deal and Price Tracking

    Oh GAWD. I just bought 8. If only I hadn't of wimped out on those 4 Gigabyte LGA2011 boards a couple months back. esisoinc accepted 90/ea. Not a great deal but not bad. On another topic, it's great that these are coming down in price, but barebones Dell and HP servers that accept LGA 2011 chips...

    Smoking hot deal: Quanta LB6M 24-port SFP+ 10GbE $500 BO

    It's worth noting that people are buying these at the asking price, it's not likely for the seller to go much lower than 500.

    Smoking hot deal: Quanta LB6M 24-port SFP+ 10GbE $500 BO

    I wonder if it's worth "down-grading" from my infiniband switch to this, the switch is pretty toasty and just plain loud. Someone said these can be modded to be quiet? What kind of decibel levels are we talking? I don't even really see more than 12 Gbps throughput using iperf anyway with...
