    The first drivers that were loaded during the windows xp instalation are adaptec drivers :D (And not because the name started with "a", there were also some 3ware drivers)

    How to blink or identify NVMe drives connected to an LSI 9500 tri-mode controller.

    I think all their current stuff predates that standard (even the pcie 4.0 backplanes), at least their is no documentation about it (google with You didn't specify or link the exact supermicro server/chassis you have. I have two 745b chassis where i replaced the sas...

    280W TDP CPU in Supermicro 2U?

    It was the preapplied thermal grease from the SNK-P0064AP4 heatsink. Photo from another heatsink: I would use the "x method with dots" like amd shows in their videos: (Funny thing: the guy uses the threadripper(pro) wrench and taped the logos in that video:D)

    Server 2022 essentials included RDP CAL's?

    From experience windows server will work fine without cals/licenses. You (the customers) want to have the proper cals/licenses when you (they) get auditioned (by microsoft or other entities for certain iso certifications) :D

    12G spinners vs 6G spinners

    hdds? nope. maybe when seagate finally releases the hdds with multiple actuators (which can almost max out a 6GBit/s link) for everybody (see Edit: it makes sense to buy 12GBit/s hdds when they are the...

    12G spinners vs 6G spinners

    Rerun the test with a larger files (let's say 30+ GByte) and put the hdd in the same slot (and let it "cool off" after each benchmark run). I think the result's will be even closer... I'm not sure what you mean... 6 GBit/s is ~550MByte/s with encoding and sata+sas tunneling protocol. Nothing...

    20TB hard drive for $295

    I would check the seagate website for warranty and firmware downloads. if there is still warrant and firmware downloads available then yes, it's a great deal. (I think seagate exos are to hdds what intel dc ssds were for ssds)

    Samsung PB SSD at 128TB for 60PB All-flash Racks

    I was thinking put these ssds in a pcie chassis/jbof and let a dedicated cpu (close to the chassis/jbof) do this work. (reminds me of hardware raid :D)
