    Cheap chinese x79 mobos

    If a board has a data capturing chip on it, it wouldn't be to collect credit card info. It would be to simply spy on foreign and domestic governments.

    Battery ok, but BIOS wont keep settings X9DRi-LN4F+

    This is indeed very weird. Unfortunately I don't have any experience with your motherboard but hopefully somebody knows what's going on. @TommyL BTW, what bmc/bios revision are you running? On SM there is R 3.48 for BMC and R 3.3 for BIOS

    Do I really need the plastic carrier for a e5-26xx

    On all the threads I read everyone says to just peel it off and that the adhesive is not strong so you can remove the plastic tab easily.

    Far fetched but it could be being changed by software.

    Help with 1-5-5-4 Beep Code Error

    Could be a bunch of things. If you stripped it down to bare minimum and it's still not powering on then reset bios and run it with one stick of ram and leave only one fan connected. There is a slim chance it is a failed fan. Just keep trying, it moght be something you missed.

    Could PowerSupply cause random drives to fail?

    Good luck man. Working as a freelancer can be a real bother when It comes to getting paid sometimes. If you had any connection with the client while you were working for the company it will most probably go smoothly.

    System down - What would you do?

    @OP: Knowing the IP might not be much help if they know what they are doing but make sure to check the teamviewer logs eitger way. Hopefully the guy behind this is not smart.

    Supermicro cse-216 power distro and X9DRi-LN4F+

    I would ask for a picture to verify but you seem to have found valid info so you should be good to. Good luck with the build!

    Supermicro cse-216 power distro and X9DRi-LN4F+

    Try to see if they fit, don't put much pressure. If they fit try to find marks or symbols on the board to make sure polarity is correct. Also, got a multimeter handy?
