    16GB Intel M10 Optane M.2 SSD $15.50 New?

    In for one. You reminded me that I have an empty M2-USB adapter doing nothing. Might try it as a boot drive on the USB port of my secondary proxmox box. Thanks for the link.

    1U Supermicro Server 6x 10GBE RJ45 X10SLH-LN6TF LGA 1150 H3 X10SLH-N6-ST031

    I've done a fair bit of passthrough with Proxmox. (Started about 6 years ago. Variable success and problems.) Try this guide and if doesn't work post your issues. See if it's the board or the process. Ultimate Beginners Guide to GPU Passthrough

    FS: Ruckus R600 Wireless Access Points $80 Each

    Long time since posted, but I just got the official "might as well just do it" upgrade nod from the mrs. These still around?

    Damn, you are making it VERY hard not to spend money I shouldn't!

I've had my eyes on upgrading the home but I can't justify the cost right now. Since it's the cheapest I've seen...

    Upgrade itch from E5-2670 v1

    So I pulled the trigger on a X10SRM-F, paired with an E5-1650v3. Added 4x16GB DDR4 and a 1TB NVMe M2 drive. (Even got the board and ram locally, no duty fees!) Just looking for a heatsink. Any recommendations besides the Noctura? (Not against them, just looking for variety.)

    Upgrade itch from E5-2670 v1

    I appreciate the pointing but that would be problematic I think. Doesn't ship to Canada (Passport is expired so even a border hop to another address wouldn't work.) I don't need the chassis, and I understand that Dell/HP get rather propitiatory with their hardware and I prefer to whitebox my...

    Upgrade itch from E5-2670 v1

    After a likely embarrassing amount of research into cost/power/need I've decided to go with an E5-1650 and a SM x10sra-f board. (I'd love if there was a model with onboard sfp+ but searches for a -tp variant comes up nil for me.) Now to keep scouring eBay for a good deal or one of their coupon...

    Upgrade itch from E5-2670 v1

    I'm looking into that. Hoping to find a good used board/cpu or other combo. Anyone else have another suggestion or is this the best "go to"?

    Upgrade itch from E5-2670 v1

    Going DDR4 and separate node, I'm thinking 64GB would give me a nice amount of headroom. I have 128GB on my current-soon-to-be-secondary system and that will take any offload needed.

    Upgrade itch from E5-2670 v1

    Money's not exactly tight, but if we didn't check purchases with each other it would be. For something like this I actually have to work some overtime to pay for it as regular funds cover the bills and the extra could go to home improvements or a trip or something. So in effect, our spouse is...

    Upgrade itch from E5-2670 v1

    Greetings all. So, I had planned on adding another small system to my rack that would be a Nextcloud/Emby server and a cluster backup for Proxmox which I use on my primary system. However, my current system is one of the dual E5-2670v1 SRoK on an Intel S2600CP2 that was so popular a few years...

    Aruba MAS series SFP+ & POE+ switches sub-$100

    Oh, I had. The rest of it went smoothly thanks to this thread here and the vid by ViciousXUSMC. I'm moving over from using a Mikrotik CRS326, and the flavour of the Aruba is delightful. I've been a long time Mikrotik fan, and still use one of their routers, but compared to the Aruba they just...
