    Jumping on the 10Gbe wagon

    One of the motivations for upgrading to 10GbE is that I need to move around aprox 30TB of media back and forth due to upgrading one of my storageservers with new bigger drives. I know its overkill and on a day to day basis I will not be able to utilize the full potential of the 10GbE between the...

    Jumping on the 10Gbe wagon

    On my workstation (Win7) I installed the newest driver and my card accepted both non-Intel tranceivers without any issue. I also put another card into a esxi boks I have running, and everything worked after just booting machine back up again. Havnt tested any performance, just that I can still...

    Jumping on the 10Gbe wagon

    For a while now I have been thinking about upgrading some servers and a workstation to faster network, and for me 10Gbe is the next logical step. This is for my home network, so nothing mission critical etc. For me noice is a bigger concern over cost, but then again I will have to pay for...

    Intel X540-T2 - passive or active cooling

    Thinking about buying a few Intel X540-T2 10gbit nics, and I see that it comes with passive cooling and active cooling (only Dell clone?). How hot does these get? I will use them in my home, and will not get hammered 24/7 by a long shot. Two of these will each be in a Norco chassis , and I want...

    The best/ worst kept secret in 2.5" to 3.5" converters

    Quick question: Would those Dell converters work with the caddies for a C6100 or a (early gen) Norco? Or are they limited to only work with the Dell caddies mentioned in the eBay auction (0F238F, F238F, 0X968D, X968D, 0G302D, G302D)? I've bought both Icy Dock (MB882SP-1S-1B) and Kingston...

    Taming the C6100

    Quick update: I just swapped the pin-order on my fan-extentions, to what Idea wrote and showed pics of in his post, and now I get to see the rpm-reading on all 4 fans via IPMI on all 4 nodes, which I was unable to earlyer. The supermicro-fans were also noticable much more quiet than the...

    Taming the C6100

    8" is not enough if you're using the Supermicro-fans, you need 14"/35cm to be able to connect the fan furthest away. I posted some pics in this thread a few pages back, in post #151 in this thread (direct link...
