    [WTB][US-FL] Supermicro X10SRL-F Board ($~150ish)

    shooting you a PM I have an X10SRL-F with an e5-2678v3 cpu that I was going to list next week when I am back at the office. However it will be more than $150 for the combo and you are correct, I don't need a half dozen. Just 4+1 :-).

    Dual Xeon-D

    You can always try lower and not use the code. I'm a big believer in not trying to squeeze the absolute last penny out of someone and being fair. My calculus is if the board is $230 shipped, you get two nodes, so 1 cpu, motherboard bits, and dual 10Gbe is actually $115.00 dunno about you...

    Dual Xeon-D

    Montreal Computers dropped me a note this morning to thank me for some feedback I left and to let me know there were more dual node 1541 boards in stock. I asked whether these boards were in better condition than the last lot they sold and they said the last lot was damaged in transport and...

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

    Doing my part to extend the thread count. So let's play the guessing game: * Did the guinea pigs running the wheel on the eternal license making forge die? Or did you develop a fondness for Peruvian cuisine * You've transferred the guinea pigs and eternal license making forge to @infoMatt *...

    How to reformat HDD & SSD to 512B Sector Size

    you may want to take a look at this thread and especially the last few posts. The drive model number smells suspiciously of Hitachi VSP'ness. The symptoms you describe are consistent with trying to reuse a drive loaded with VSP firmware.

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

    I don't know about "everyone" but the very first post in this thread towards the bottom has a recommendation for an OEM HPE ethernet/IB card that can be flashed to stock Mellanox ConnectX 3 40Gbe. I have two in use and they work great and were inexpensive. I can verify the card works in...

    Dual v2 Server Build Questions/Advice sought

    x16 adapter? which adapter did you get? Is it by chance a quad m.2 nvme? If it is non-plx based your motherboard will have to support PCIe bifurcation and you'll need an x16 slot or at a minimum an open-ended x8. I'm going to guess non plx. With an open ended x8 you'll need to figure out...

    Dual Xeon-D

    Panel1 appears to physically conform to the standard Asrock pin-out: Operationally: Power LED works as expected. Power button doesn't seem to do anything as my boards power up when power is applied. HDLED I have not observed working - doesn't mean it doesn't just that I wasn't looking when...
