    EMC Isilion NL410 HDD support

    Hi, does anyone know if The NL410 supports non EMC branded HDDs? How about changing controllers/MBs? And can anyone tell me how loud they are? I'm currently looking at these and they seem to be a pretty great deal for a 36x 3.5" solution with caddies. Any thoughts?

    Fujitsu Thin Client FUTRO S740 Inofficial max RAM

    Hi everyone, I'm currently looking at a bunch of cheap S740 for a little, cheap, lower-powered cluster fun. The official specs claim 8GB RAM max (as does the intel ark page for the J4105 this machine is based on). I now that the Asrock J4105-itx has been tested with up to 32GB of RAM. Does...

    Hi, this might be a bit of a noob question, but are there any boards that take 6330 or 8176 that are not 500€+?

    IBM EXP3512 or EMC KTN-STL3

    Hi, I hope you guys can help me out. I'm just starting my homelab journey and am looking to build a "small" storage solution. I have come across some cheap IBM EXP3512s and EMC KTN-STL3s. I would like to use them as a DAS directly connected to my R520. Can anyone tell me if these support 8TB...

    UK Amazon.co.uk -- Intel Xeon Silver 4112 -- 142£ + Shipping

    Even with a used mobo @ ~200€ I feel like this ain't really that competitive. Didn't xeon silver already have trouble competing at launch with Epyc in 2017. Didn't the initial review mention it not being a big upgrade over the e5 v4s? I suspect it's even worse now with the new line-ups and...

    Converting old server gear

    Hey, I still have a few very old servers lying around and I'm wondering if throwing in some new MBs, backplanes, PSUs could work with some handy dandy dremel engineering. The idea is to make a new storage server on the cheap. I have the following that I could use basically as a barebones...

    Converting an HP DL380e Gen8 14xLFF Server to a Disk Shelf

    Thanks for the reply. I was actually mostly thinking about getting two of these to work off of one 2 port SAS controller, that's why I asked. I'll try to dig a little deeper. Maybe I can come up with a very jank setup haha.

    Converting an HP DL380e Gen8 14xLFF Server to a Disk Shelf

    Sorry for digging up this thread again. I was just wondering if the 2 port variant of the backplane requires both to be connected? Or is this just for multipath or failover?

    EU Rackable NM46X 12-LFF chassis 60€ BO

    Hi, what kind of HBA would be a good cheap option for this box? I was also thinking of getting a Gigabyte GA-C1037UN with an Celeron 1037U and some cheapo DDr3 for it. Does that sound good?

    Cheap chinese x79 mobos

    Are there any good alternatives in regards to cheap boards that take DDR3 with these special e5 v3 cpus?

    Are there any cheap, used, non-blowimatron, 2U, LGA1150 rackmount servers?

    Hi, I have a xeon 1230 v3 and 16GB ram lying around that I would like to put to good use in advancing my datahoarding issues, but I'm not sure how. Maybe you guys have some suggestions? I wanna go with a Netapp DS4243 or DS4246 for storage and need a server for it - hopefully one that fits the...

    New Fujitsu D3348-B23 Motherboard (LGA2011-3), $200 OBO ($140 accepted), Ebay

    Just as an FYI. There are so many connectors because it's all 12V. It has to step down the voltage for HDDs and such on the board (afaik) and has output connectors going to the drives. There is a second version of the R940 with a POWER suffix - I suppose the upped the psu for the highest end...

    Intel Omni-Path in the homelab for direct connect

    Hey @LodeRunner, thanks for chiming in. I have only briefly taken a look at omni path documentation, but it looks like direct connect works as long as one host acts as a fabric manager. Then there is OPA VNIC which is supposed to allow Ethernet over Omni path fabric and bridging to other...

    Intel Omni-Path in the homelab for direct connect

    Hi guys, I've seen some relatively cheap Intel 100Gbps Omni-path adapters ( 100HFA016LS ) on ebay recently and was wondering if someone has dealt with those in a homelab setting, as I haven't been able to find much info on them apart from HPC/datacenter stuff. I'm mostly interested if they can...

    X10QBI and v3/v4 cpus (e.g. supermicro sys-4048b-trft)

    Hey everybody, I've been interested in these kind of systems for a while. Especially, for the high core counts and DDR3 shenanigans. I got one question though - how much GPU can you actually cram inside this thing? Mostly concerned with number of slots/depth/width. That would make it a great...

    EU Joblot 4 x BigFoot XXL (48x3.5"+8x2.5") (DEAD)

    Yeah I thought I missed the timer first. Weird, I thought it was going for a day longer. Maybe waiting to long was not the way to go. Sucks, but maybe another deal another day.
