    From E5-v4 to Xeon W. A worthy upgrade?

    So am not the only one looking at this...With the trend of the W-21XX and W-22XX CPUs also dropping, I might skip buying more v4s despite the prices now. From a bird's eye view, single core performance is better and so to is power consumption. You also get more pcie lanes and rdimm and lrdimms...

    SR-IOV on Ampere

    So the answer is a "No" for the time being. If SR-IOV exists on the hardware, how difficult would it be to eventually enable it?:

    Build Feedback: 96TB NAS w/ Room For Expansion

    Should consider getting a server MB. The supermicro brand is well respected amongst the FreeNAS community. I would also suggest that IPMI is a must for headless management (almost all server grade MBs have them with various licensing options). If your using the GPU just to hook up a monitor for...

    TrueNAS Beta 2 is working great!

    Recently tested 11.2U1 through 12 Beta 2. Not only is it much more stable as a VM on esxi (no buggy pass through issues with a nvme and network card) but performance is great. Up time of over a week and absolutely no issues. Also, API key management is very nice and integrates well with the...

    Running 6 in mirrored zfs pool as a NFS share for esxi VMs. Have 99% endurance left after 2+ years of 24/7 homelab use and no issues. Only thing to note is that they run a little hot, so be sure to have adequate cooling. For the price some of us got them at during the 2018 OWC fire sale, they...

    Supermicro X10SRH-CLN4F BIOS power settings for VMware

    VMware guidance aside, I use these settings for an esxi 7.0 Windows 2019 Server VM: FAQ Entry | Online Support | Support - Super Micro Computer, Inc. I get on par or better passmark scores. However, I've never been able to get similar scores on a Windows 10 Pro VM.

    Weird Postcode B4 IPMI Issue

    I'm on a X10SRW-F Supermicro MB with latest bios and ipmi. MB hangs at postcode B4 when I insert an ISO through virtual media. However, if I eject the virtual media, it boots fine. Any ideas? Many thanks.
