I have had great success with these narrow LGA2011 to AM4 adapters. You might need to cut the side parts out for some coolers, but they're so solid you can take all the sides away and they're still really strong. I've mounted Wraith Prisms to my 135W Xeons and they're never above 70C, usually...
I would expect a 20% tax on it my side (VAT only I think, there shouldn't be import duty), and shipping seems to vary wildly by country, carrier and what our PM said today.
If shipping is manageable then finding a mutually acceptable payment method would be next. We're both pretty new here.
I'm really interested in this, but I have a few questions first please:
I'm in the UK. Would it be possible to post to here? Do you know how much it might cost or how heavy it is?
What payment method would you want?
Is it complete?
Have you noticed any compatibility problems or have you had...
I just got a HBA355i and have the same problem finding cables.
As LP cables are pin compatible with the non-LP cables, might it be possible to 3D print a shim that the normal cable can fit in that then clips into the LP socket? I've never printed anything myself, but it seems like a cheaper...
I have the same board. You can improve your chances of your sticks working by upgrading the BIOS. Also, if you don't have all four slots populated then make sure you're using them in the correct order as it says in the manual. Mine is a bit funny if it only has one stick or if it has two but...
Asrock X99m Extreme 4 - £120
This was my home server for a while. It runs well with retail and ES v3 & v4 Xeons.
Xeon E5-4610v3 - £50
Retail version. 10 cores, 20 threads, 1.7GHz, 105W TDP, no turbo. The high TDP and no turbo means it should run predictably at exactly 1.7GHz all the time...
I don't want to buy, but I think you might want to double check that auction. It doesn't say anywhere that £135 is the price for all 4 of them, or that 4 are available.
Unless that is the price each? In which case you might need to reconsider as Lambdatek are selling them for £47 each refurb.
They are SMR, I trust these guys: Seagate Introduces BarraCuda 2.5” HDDs with Up to 5 TB Capacity
That article also goes some way to explaining why they might not perform as badly as SMR should.
That said, I have 8 across a couple of TB enclosures with ZFS and they work great, no complaints a...
