    Which used power controller should I be thinking about?

    I've been limping along with a mass of discrete desktops in my home server room, but this has been the year I finally got a proper rack and have begun updating and consolidating machines. I've got about 18U worth of gear right now, although a third of that will likely be powered off most of the...

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

    I would test jacks 21 & 22, but if they link and pass traffic, I wouldn't give it a second thought.

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

    Just to be completely clear, the Mikrotik CRS305-1G-4S+IN you say you want to connect to your desktop only has SFP+ ports on it. It does not have QSFP or QSFP+ ports on it, so those aren't relevant. You have these choices as I see it: 1a) Another copper run to a copper card: * A copper...

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

    I'm all set up with a 48 port POE ICX-6610, and I'm extremely pleased for the $150 shipped I paid to Ebay. I've thanked Fohdeesha privately, but I'll do so again here publicly. Many, many thanks. Here's my question: I have maybe 10 POE phones, 7 POE cameras (some external with IR), and 3 Unify...

    Flash/Crossflash DELL H330 RAID Card to HBA330/12Gbps HBA IT Firmware

    I bought a Dell R730xd last week that supposedly had a "H330 Mini" in it. I intend to run ZFS on this server. I researched the H330 Mini and HBA, found this thread, saw it could be cross-flashed to a real HBA/IT mode, and was happy. The Ebay vendor then mailed me after the item shipped to tell...

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

    My unit has just been marked as shipped, and in prior Ebay correspondence vendor indicated he would be updating my bios and clearing the password.

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

    Looks like the original listing for the $155 shipped server has been updated to brag that the BIOS has been updated and the password cleared. I'm hopeful my machine (which hasn't shipped yet) will get this treatment, and I've messaged the vendor to indicate I can wait a few days. Price is now...

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

    Wolfstar has yours shipped? Mine was ordered on the 14th for $155 with free shipping, but no tracking yet.

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

    Thank you as well for this reply - very helpful. I've ordered one of these for an overkill home pfSense router. I currently have one of the fanless Celeron J1900s now, and it's totally fine except I'm expecting better OpenVPN performance from this. This would be my first 10GB device of any...
