    Topton Jasper Lake Quad i225V Mini PC Report

    just a little note regarding my power supply the "dajing" power supply with the light up blue led on it's name. I think the efficiency is probably pretty decent? I contrasted with a finsix laptop adapter that I had laying around. Which was marketed as being as fairly efficient. I couldn't...

    That's weird. I'm using bridged virtio drivers. Doing a speed test.net from a client is about 33% CPU utilization at gigabit speeds. I wonder if that's only virtio/e1000 or something bigger

    Topton Jasper Lake Quad i225V Mini PC Report

    I kept it simple with proxmox and opnnsense. 1 port Linux bridged to virtio for WAN. The other 3 in another bridge for virtio LAN. a couple years ago I experimented with passthrough of the nics. That also worked but didn't seem to have performance benefits. Also opnsense recommends leaving...

    we should be careful that we are comparing the same benchmark with power consumption. I was running prime95/small, which uses the most power possible and may trigger an AVX clockdown or something. Unfortunately I am no longer running windows so I can't run aida64 myself.

    Topton Jasper Lake Quad i225V Mini PC Report

    that shim factory installed is interesting. maybe it's how they're 'fixing' the problem in quality control? It might be better than no shim at all, but kinda weird. from when I was running windows and testing with prime95/small, and looking at hwinfo: During (short) PL2, the CPU itself was...

    Did yours have my problem where if you screw the 2.5 into the backplate then there's not enough room to plug the cable? If not which chassis style do you have?

    hey y'all i just got mine in yesterday, the unit has been fun, here's my report. I ordered my n5105 / I226 version from the "YSJMNPC Store". At the time with a small coupon it was slightly less than other options. Around US$162. I ordered it on Oct 14, and received it on Nov 7. I ordered...

    Beware - Emulex 10GbE Virtual Fabric Adapter II x8 PCI-E slot

    For windows if you want a button to click to bring the link down/up, try to get the onecommand tools from Broadcoms site. If if that works manually then I outlined how to automate it with windows task scheduler in post 49. I'm still using the card and it still works great. (Sometimes i...

    Thanks for the writeup. it's educational to see that the "good" chassis doesn't necessarily have any better contact with the CPU.

    Storage Crypto ?

    I took some time yesterday to figure out docker compose and spun up a storj node. And I saw the common advice about using 1 node per drive. Kind of an interesting project, but it looks like it only fills by about 10GB a day so far, so it's going to take a long time to start producing money.
