Having just upgraded my HomeLab I now have 2 motherboards that have Dual Intel X540 on the motherboard.
I would prefer on the third server to get a 10Gbe Card for it but the Intel X540 is expensive in the UK.
Stupidly I had a Chelsio T420-BT which would have been ideal but I sold it...
I recently snapped up a bargain here in the UK and managed to get a 24 bay SC846 and a 36 bay SC847 JBOD both with SAS2 Backplanes with expander chips for £400 / $460 which I thought was a great deal .
I have a few questions though as I am new to backplanes and expanders.

I have finally started to make my NAS Server and before I got a chance to set the pool up FreeNAS gave me a warning telling me that one of my drives had issues.
When I checked the issues there are around 3543 Uncorrectable Sectors / Pending Sectors does this mean that they are all...

Today (Typically) after buying some kit to build some white boxes someone I know pointed me towards the Kaby Lake Pentium G4560 and how much bang for buck it is.
I see that the processor is Dual Core with HT, Supports ECC and also Vt-D and get some really impressive results in a lot...
I currently own 4 x HP ML310e G8 Servers that are decked out with the max ram that that supports 32GB and they all have the E3-1220 V2 CPU in them.
I am a VM ESXi junkie and memory is what I really need and a good amount of it, but at the same time I need a sensible trade off of cost...
I currently have an HP ML310e G8 and whilst its a good server it is bottlenecked by the fact it only supports 32GB DDR3 UDIMM RAM and I use it as a ESXi host. The processor is a E3-1220 V2 (Quad Core no HT) and I have 2 of these servers running max ram and loaded with 4 x 3TB drives in...
I am already impressed with FreeNAS performance even as a VM on my esxi host running some disks off a Passed Through LSI 9211-8 Card but I thought I would take a look and see what Windows offers to do an experiment.
Now I have heard of Storage Spaces before but I am not sure about it...
