    WD Red Plus Launched with CMR

    I'm sure they're not happy with you @Patrick but what you're pointing out is spot on. If they made a new line to denote SMR instead of using Red classic that would help in the future. Using the same is screwing over people who don't know better.

    Expensive but great 128GB LRDIMMs $585

    I know these are going to be a bit pricey, but there are 8x 128GB 2400MHz LRDIMMs for $6K and 2666MHz for $8K on ebay. These are under $600 ea so under $4700 for 1TB of RAM and the seller has a bunch. That's not too much of a premium for big capacity dimms...

    [Homelab] Looking for advice on hardware for small Proxmox node.

    Proxmox is Debian. Debian and Ubuntu are supported on EPYC right? We're the freezing reports old?

    HPE ProLiant MicroServer Gen10 Plus Review This is Super

    Just install to a USB drive. S100i I don't think works as RAID but it's just the Intel PCH so it'll work to install for SATA. I'd still just use a USB boot device.

    HPE DL385 Gen10 Dual EPYC Server

    I saw this one today https://www.ebay.com/itm/HP-HPE-Proliant-DL385-Gen10-Server-2x-AMD-Epyc-7251-64GB-No-HDD/264727784921 Sure the EPYC 7251 sucks, but you can probably buy that server, sell the CPUs, use new CPUs and get a server including some RAM for not a lot. 64GB is still a few hundred...

    HPE ProLiant MicroServer Gen10 Plus Ultimate Customization Guide

    That's normal. Core i5, i7, i9 aren't supported on server chipsets. Only Core i3. It isn't just this HPE it's all server chipsets for many years.

    Questions about colocating

    If you've got 1 rack, make it close to you. You should also see if you can negotiate to add racks at the same price. What sucks is when you've negotiated a space, but adding more costs 50% more because the know it costs too much to move the rest of your setup.

    STH Forum: old or new theme

    @T_Minus you haven't found the "Toggle Width" feature it seems in the bottom left. I like the bigger font. Easier on old eyes. This isn't a forum for teenagers and browsers can make text smaller.

    STH Forums a New Look and How to Switch to Dark Theme

    I'd say both look great. The forums looked bad after the upgrade but now they're looking clean and I like the dark theme. It looks like it actually matches the main STH site. Why the white bar at the top of the dark theme though?
