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

    Can you post the parts / components (heatpipe and secondary heatsinks) and the adhesive you used for that? That's actually a brilliant solution.

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

    I've got two 7250-24P switches but even with fan mods they're still noisier than I like, and it's hard to find good fans for them that don't cause temperatures to increase by 15 to 20 degrees. Felt like this would be a good place to ask: any 7250 vets who have sense moved on to other 10 gig...

    Xeon e5-2697 v4 $108

    I need some CPUs for Dell M630 blades, they can be configured with either 68mm or 86mm heatsinks, the former is pretty standard and the latter has what is probably a vapor chamber /w heatpipes (or just a heat pipe sans vapor chamber). They're both described as "for 120W or less CPU" and "120W...

    Deals on Dell FX2S from a few sellers

    Everything I've read suggests these are not suitable noise wise for home use at all. 4 r730s or a vrtx would be more practical if that's a concern. I would exercise caution ordering one of these. I believe they only run on 200-240 volt input also. You may be able to run one node on 110 120 but...

    No, not when they're on utility. If power knocks out the fans will turn on. Kind of nice, actually.

    EXPIRED ebay Intel P3605 1.6TB HHHL - 140 (sold out)-150 (sold out) USD shipped

    How warm do these get while idle? You pretty much need an HBA/NIC heatsink for most modern adapters if you run them in consumer cases or SuperMicro cases where you're controlling fan speeds so I am wondering if they can be comfortably ran in a low-ish airflow config.

    Looking for a SuperMicro AOC-SGP-i4 (quad i350 nic)

    I purchased 3 of these off fleabay a while back and didn't get to test them til a bit later, turns out one was bad. I got a pretty good deal on them so I wasn't too upset that it was out of the return window. I ended up fudging an attempt at self repairing it myself (it looked like maybe one of...
