    (US) 90 dollar Wyse 5070 Thin client/mini-server?

    Rank doesn't matter for speed -- it will run any faster memory at 2400 MHz regardless. All of my sticks are 2666 MHz but configured speed in `dmidecode -t 17` is all 2400 MT/s. Dual rank is needed to get above 8 GB total mem but for whatever reason seems like you can get away with half single...

    (US) 90 dollar Wyse 5070 Thin client/mini-server?

    It says 1RX8 (single rank) which would be a no but it suggests they have dual rank options. It looks like the 16GB+ (NOT 8GB) sticks are dual rank which would work. I made the mistake of buying 2x8GB single rank sticks a while back for my 5070 so I ended up just using 8GB+4GB (12GB) total with...

    Canada [SOLD] FS: Brocade ICX6450-24p

    Hey all. Downsizing the lab and don't need this anymore. Fantastic switch but very oversized for my current needs. I was using 3/4 of the 10g ports at 10g and a few PoE ports, no issues there. The 2 fans were replaced with 2x Delta FFB0412HN-5T20 fans which really improved the idle noise level...

    (US) 90 dollar Wyse 5070 Thin client/mini-server?

    Wow, bummed I missed that. The ad did mention: hopefully those are listed at around the same price. CPU is not all that bad and has a good igpu, would be sweet to get a couple of these.

    Help buying rtx 3080

    Buy a time machine, lol I don't know any US specific tactics but distill.io is amazing. Install the extension on your personal PC's browser so that you can configure check intervals to be as low as 5 seconds.

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

    To be fair, if you want to do the VLANs you need either a USG/UDM gateway or a router that can handle the cam's VLAN traffic. The ubiquiti "Pro" L3 switches claim to support L3 in all of their marketing material but have never actually worked to this day and it's been on sale for months. You...

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

    More or less, except your switch won't have a management IP (or does it default to DHCP on the mgmt port with telnet enabled? ...no idea). It will only route VLAN 1 but will otherwise act as unmanaged. PoE (if equipped) is off by default so if needed you will need to wait for a console cable.

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

    you can but tread carefully and test all of your devices (specifically IOT junk) if you do that. It has some issues. https://forums.servethehome.com/index.php?threads/brocade-icx-series-cheap-powerful-10gbe-40gbe-switching.21107/page-39#post-206144...

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

    your switch config looks ok (I think?) from a device on vlan10 (not opnsense) can you ping the switch and opnsense? 10.0.10.1 (will definitely work), 10.0.2.1 (should), 10.0.2.2 (should) if you can ping 10.0.2.2 then you have an issue on OPNsense, so check your NAT rules that they are OK. Also...

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

    I moved the L3 routing duties from my untangle vm to the ICX6450. It was a lot easier than expected, but just wanted to post what I did in one post since I ended up taking info from different posts here & externally to make one complete post. now my internet gw is just a firewall and not a does...

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

    Okay, swapping fan pins was a lot simpler than I thought (the pins come right out when pushing on the tab with a flathead.) The acoustics are definitely better. The full speed noise is significantly less than stock. I attempted to measure it, but you can only go so far with a phone app & rough...
