    Removing CPU from motherboard and plastic cap

    The last time I removed the CPU from the supermicro intel motherboard and installed the original plastic cap, I damaged the pins. I wasn't sure whether the plastic cap is supposed to go on the detachable bracket or directly on the CPU. Unfortunately, there are no videos on youtube on...

    2133 MHz shows up as 1866 MHz on Supermicro board

    I moved the memory from A1/A2/B1/B2, D1/D2/E1/E2 to slots A1/B1/C1/D1/E1/F1/G1/H1. These are all the blue slots on the motherboard. The memory showed up as 2133MHz. Is that the preferred way of setting up memory i.e. blue slots first followed by black slots?

    HGST HUSMM8020ASS200 goes offline

    Finally, the mystery is solved. I had hd-idle running on the system. This program turns off the scsi disks, but never turn them on. This is a known issue. Once, i disabled hd-idle for the scsi disks, they work fine.

    2133 MHz shows up as 1866 MHz on Supermicro board

    The memory speed in the BIOS is indeed set to auto. The CPU is E5-2650 v4 which does support 2133. The manual has this documentation, I have 16GBx8 sticks. Is there any order i should follow to get 2133MHz?

    Supermicro SC846 fan wall

    Hello, Few years ago I bought a fan wall to make the supermicro SC846 quiet. Unfortunately, i never put it to use. I am unable to locate the thread on the internet which spoke about this. Does anybody know about this fan wall?

    Supermicro MB_10G, 10GBe NIC high temperature

    Are you not using the PCIE slots next to the heatsink? With the fan in place a card will not fit over the heatsink. I have an SFP+ card sitting over the heatsink. Wonder what is the best way to get a fan close to the heat sink. A picture of your fan+heatsink setup would be nice :)

    SC846 rails stuck

    This is what i found at the back of the rack today. Also, there were a bunch of ball bearings next to it. Guess, I need to get a new rail. This video suggests, I should replace my existing blue label rail (MCP-290-00057-0N) with a yellow label rail (MCP-290-00053-0N).
