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

    Thank you! adding a 330µF cap removed the whining noise. Here is a video where i power on the switch, test the cap, and measure the pvm frequency (~3kHz). This video shows a different fan. Since this fan is more quiet and runs slower the whining is even worse. Here you can easily hear the...

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

    I'm also having the same problem as noise850 with the switch stuck in high speed fan mode, using the command he used I can lower the fans. I tried a reload with the fans set to low, and at the same time as the "enter b to stop at boot" the fans changed to high and stays like this. I have a...

What would be the best way to include the new disks? Merging them into the current pool? Making a new pool and adding...

    Upgrading HBA card to sas 6Gbit and adding more storage

    I'm planning on getting some new drives soon, and after checking what I have I found out I need a new HBA. My current card is a "HP SAS 3801E" (Only sas1, so max 2tb drives) and the one I'm looking to upgrade to is a "LSI SAS9207-8E" (seems to be the card people recommend for sas2?) My current...
