    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...

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

    Got it. (Easy fix btw.) I'm running openssh and while acsxxx ciphers are recognized, they are not enabled by default. You need to edit the /etc/ssh/ssh_config and uncomment out the line allowing those ciphers. Thanks so much! (I swear the more I learn the more networking intimidates me.)

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

    Alright, that's a little above my head. I'm trying to connect from an Arch install and had ssh installed ages ago when I set it up. I'll do some snooping and see what sense I can make of that. Cheers!

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

    I've got mine configured and can access via my browser. However, I can't get a ssh session to start in order to CLI the stacking ports into regular. Any tips? Attempts to ssh in as either root or admin give me: Unable to negotiate with 192.168.88.250 port 22: no matching cipher found. Their...
