    Cheap 8+ ports sfp+ - low noise

    Thanks, after reflecting I think for how few ports I need, I may end up going with ubiquiti's 5 port Flex XG, its $300 but most of my equipment is already ubiquiti so management would be easy. Addtionally it can do 1, 2.5, 5, or 10 gig and is already ethernet handoff

    Assistance with disc enclosure to R630/MD1400

    So since the server bios cant see the discs at all I have to assume a communication issue. I would try 1) try the cable SAS cable into port 1 on the other EMM to see if perhaps its running as primary perhaps? 2) Replacing the SAS cable 3) Add a 2nd SAS cable so both EMM are connected 4) Update...

    Advice on NAS build for home

    https://www.elpamsoft.com/?p=Plex-Hardware-Transcoding Take a gander at that for gpu trans-coding estimates. That said a high core X10 xeon E5 system would probably work extremely well (single core proc with high count or dual proc with lesser count) I'm running a e5-2695 v4 and it works well...

    High Endurance M.2 (NVMe not sata) SSD?

    So everything finished, however I got some teaser news that unraid is about to allow zfs capability on the cache pool in the new 6.11 version, so since I'd need to rebuild the cache anyway I'm going to wait to move over my VM and docker containers to the new drives until that occurs.

    High Endurance M.2 (NVMe not sata) SSD?

    lookin good so far, while it technically should be 3k read per drive I'm not really complaining i suspect thats probably between the m.2 adapter or the bifurcation i'm using on the board, or possibly the OS limiting. I am getting better than advertised write at least The most impressive thing...

    High Endurance M.2 (NVMe not sata) SSD?

    So I actually ended up getting the 7300 Pro for about the same price as the max but I get better performance at a similar endurance (4.2 vs 4.5 pbw with over double the space (800gb vs 1.92TB). I lowballed him for $280/ea for two thinking he'd counter but he accepted ~ tbd on the condition...

    High Endurance M.2 (NVMe not sata) SSD?

    Thats a bit more than I wanted to pay, but for 10x the endurance and 3x the storage size isnt a bad tradeoff for 250$, I paid 100$ each for my SAS SSD that i have 4 of to get the same 800gb (on top of needing an enclosure, that takes up valuable hdd space and makes noise). Thanks @BoredSysadmin...

    High Endurance M.2 (NVMe not sata) SSD?

    Nice, thanks for the suggestion but I'm seeing the chart as only 800 TBW now (they might have changed specs, corsair's mp510 revision b is almost 1/2 the endurance of it's predecessor) I did find the seagate firepro 510 to be fairly comparable to the MP510, however they are almost double the...

    LSI RAID Controller and HBA Complete Listing Plus OEM Models

    The h310 is the most common and generally readily available model. As for airflow, personally I just picked up a cheap fan pcie mount. Something like this: PCI Side-blown Graphics Card Cooling Fan Mount Bracket for sale online | eBay Then strapped a 120-140mm fan on it.

    Supermicro 3x 5.25" to 5x 3.5" HDD enclosure (sas or sata) ~ $106.25-$125 (new'ish)

    This, the norco are extremely subpar, especially on back-plane design and quality.

    Supermicro 3x 5.25" to 5x 3.5" HDD enclosure (sas or sata) ~ $106.25-$125 (new'ish)

    You do have to mode the case, cut or bend the 5.25 guiders on the case flat, other than that it works nicely.
