Looking for a M.2 2280 to U.2 cable part J15713-001 as seen here: https://www.servethehome.com/difference-intel-optane-900p-280gb-ssdpe21d280gasm-ssdpe21d280gasx/

Fixed typo. Chenbro expander looks nice but is $300+. Would rather use the cheaper RES2SV240 and add fan.
Adding a PSU jumper may be a good idea. I’m planning to use the Noctua PWM fan controller to manually adjust the fan speeds.
currently have the following system:
128GB DDR4 ECC RAM
CSE 846 chassis
I'm thinking of using my old Chenbro 3U 16 bay chassis as an external JBOD as follows.
Swap the M1015 for a 9207-4i4e.
Install a SuperMicro CSE-PTJBOD-CB2 Power...
I don’t need 16GB RAM, besides was talking about C222 chipset
but this is pretty close to $0 for CPU
SR20K Intel Xeon E5-1603 v3 2.80GHz Quad Core 10MB LGA2011 CPU Processor | eBay
I’m just looking for something to wipe drives, flash cards, etc. Don’t need anything fast just want HTML5 IPMI.
Good to know, thank you
edit: Setup a windows 7 install on a Lenovo TS140 system and was able to successfully run the secure erase command on the 900p. FYI for anyone else, it will instantly goto 50% and then hang there for 5-10 minutes before completing.
