    Norco & Adaptec 72405 - Mixing SAS & SATA

    Hi All, I need some new drives for my 24 bay Norco setup and it seems the SAS drive variants are cheaper. The backplanes apparently support SAS & SATA as does the Adaptec. I would initially be adding just 4 SAS drives so they would all be on one backplane card. Are there any compatibility or...

    Why are all Threadripper boards so samey?

    Have been looking for a Threadripper board and it is getting irritating that every board uses the 16+8+16+8 layout. Why not a 3x16 layout, eg. X16+Space+Space+X16+Space+Space+X16, they could offer bifurcation on the bottom slot which would allow for heavy IO usage with dual triple slot graphics...

    Anyone running E5-46XX in a dual board?

    Supermicro X9 Boards - No Acpi S3 Support?!?

    Does anyone else think this is strange; did the X9 dual board ever have S3 support? It is actually a bit of a handicap for workstation builds. Edit: Just noticed the X9DAE has S3 support but it seems strange they remove support from boards like the X9DAX which seems to be a workstation board too.

    I'm guessing it will work with CPU2 mem and PCI slots disabled but has anyone actually tried this config?
