    Server Mystery

    Back in the day when I had C6100, there was a dell site for ‘C’ series servers with the FW and drivers. I think the link is in the guides/resources section here. Let me see if I still have the link. Hopefully it has the files you are looking for.

    E5-2640v1 to?

    Power saving is definitely a + if you can keep the delta cost of swapping CPUs to a minimum. I think the other benefit going to v2 on Intel S2600CP boards was to gain wider PCIe Gen3 compatibility. v1 on those boards only supposed select cards at Gen3 speeds and rest at Gen2 speeds. Not sure...

    Supermicro 846 chassis

    This listin popped up on my CL alerts. Not a great price but negotiable and the seller has quantity available. San Antonio and surrounding areas can avoid shipping. Internals are pretty dated so not worth much if any...

    You need atleast 2 NIC ports. That’s why plus versions, which have a PCIe slot, are recommended. you also need to verify if T520’s CPU can handle your requirements.

    Project TinyMiniMicro: Reviving Small Corporate Desktops

    ^^^ Wish I was as diligent. A while ago I got a Elitedesk 800 G2 SFF and it did have some factory warranty. Windows 10 install gave BSOD. I ran HW diags and didn't find anything. Prime95 & memtest also were fine. Had other priorities and let this one sit unused for a while and now I see...

    Brocade ICX Series (cheap & powerful 10gbE/40gbE switching)

    Below are some tips when you are in the market for a rack in US. - if you live near a large metro area, setup alerts on craigslist. Full height 42u are more common than 24u and shorter. - Also make sure it is full depth (1070mm) or close to it. (Speaking from experience:) ) - Square holes.

    3U Supermicro CSE-836TQ Chassis (No caddies and shroud) $145 OBO

    ^^^ This. I suck at routing the cables and neatly organized and get envious of folks who do an immaculate job. I have a 836TQ that I bought few years ago using with the recent X10SRH deal. 8 bays connected to the SAS3 and another 8 to SATA. It was a royal pain. I thought of removing the fan...
