    X99-WS/IPMI: FRU & VGA Priority

    The onboard GPU is incompatible with UEFI - you'll HAVE to use CSM in order to take advantage of that. There's no real benefit to UEFI here anyways. Now...if you run a hypervisor, you CAN have the virtual machines be UEFI and that works great (is preferred for doing passthrough). But the bare...

    Supermicro X10SRH-CF

    The threshold on the noctua fans is a non issue. A simple one-line command with ipmitool or similar will adjust the threshold for whatever port you use the fan on. You can do it booting from a Linux live USB if necessary. The change is persistent across reboots. Not trying to guide you one...

    Updating the HGST HDD & SSD firmware

    Can anyone help me out here? Trying to update the firmware as per the OP, but the firmware is nowhere to be found. The vendor has locked down their downloads, and I can't access the needed file without a dell enterprise account. All I really need is the A0GNA182.bin firmware file, but if...
