    Motherboard choise for storage server?

    Confirmed that no alarms/low-rpm issues with 3 pin fans on most supermicro MBs. I think some special 1U MBs do require a minimum rpm or they go nuts.

    Motherboard choise for storage server?

    Do you plan on populating the internal HDD tray? If so, that 80mm front fan needs to push enough air through the HDDs and cool the passive heatsink when needed. Maybe you might have issues if you have heavy transcoding on the CPU from time to time? Low-rpm noctuas may not do a good job there...

    Motherboard choise for storage server?

    I just use a fan controller or 3-pin fans that I'm comfortable with db/airflow.

    From E5-v4 to Xeon W. A worthy upgrade?

    Bummer. If the x8 slots were "open" you'd be fine though.

    From E5-v4 to Xeon W. A worthy upgrade?

    So am not the only one looking at this...With the trend of the W-21XX and W-22XX CPUs also dropping, I might skip buying more v4s despite the prices now. From a bird's eye view, single core performance is better and so to is power consumption. You also get more pcie lanes and rdimm and lrdimms...

    SR-IOV on Ampere

    So the answer is a "No" for the time being. If SR-IOV exists on the hardware, how difficult would it be to eventually enable it?:

    Yes, you can try bonding.

    Mikrotik 40Gb Interface Configuration - 4 ports?

    AFAIK hw switching is supported on certain modes. LACP, I believe, does support it.
