    Supermicro Server Dual Port Can I Passthrough one?

    wait, to confirm are you just using plain FreeNAS? because passthrough sounds like PCI passthrough, which is a common virtualization concept. if you want this other server, that would be daisy chained to your workstation, to be accessible to the rest of the network, then your workstation would...

    Xeon V3 16gb 1U servers $325

    yep, and probably can score better deal getting your own CPU and RAM, probably.

    1U Supermicro Server 6x 10GBE RJ45 X10SLH-LN6TF LGA 1150 H3 X10SLH-N6-ST031

    well I just got this motherboard from ebay pdneiman (the server store). It arrived in copious amounts of bubble wrap. Initial impressions, after I assembled it into a bunch of leftover parts: * a old HTPC microATX case * a Pentium G3220T * 14GB of mismatched SODIMMS in DIMM adapters The board...

    HPE EC200A Xeon D-1518 'hybrid server' on ebay ~$150

    that's pretty ironic because I'm used the cheapest sales coming from China.

    1U Supermicro Server 6x 10GBE RJ45 X10SLH-LN6TF LGA 1150 H3 X10SLH-N6-ST031

    has anyone tried using a non xeon cpu in this? I'm wondering if a Pentium I have laying around will work.

    1U Supermicro Server 6x 10GBE RJ45 X10SLH-LN6TF LGA 1150 H3 X10SLH-N6-ST031

    thanks for drawing in the circles on th emount points. so maybe I find a really long matx case.... but it will be hard to search on, because it's like matx cases advertise if they have an extra 3 inches of motherboard mounting space. but I do have a couple of plastic standoffs for motherboards...

    1U Supermicro Server 6x 10GBE RJ45 X10SLH-LN6TF LGA 1150 H3 X10SLH-N6-ST031

    hey has anyone tried installing this board in a regular desktop/tower case? It seems like it's microatx in width, but extra long EATX/SSI-EEB in length. Not sure what it would even fit in.

    14TB White label drive $199.99 free s/h

    Since probably half the readership here would want to put these into a ZFS array, I would worry about the chance of getting a SMR drive. Some of the Exos are SMR right?

    eBay - Intel Xeon E5-2680V4 - $168

    geeze they blurred out part of their own photo of their own ES cpu? even though this vendor has been around for a while, doesn't seem worth it.

    eBay - Intel Xeon E5-2680V4 - $168

    I also think it's probably a enterprise retirement windows starting to kick in. the v3 prices (per cpubenchmark) dropped like a cliff a couple years go. the v4 does drop down to 14nm, so it might get you lower electricity or heat or more cores for same electricity.

    5x HP EliteDesk 705 G3 8GB 256GB SSD Win10 Pro $726

    the A10's have semi decent GPUs, a small step up from an integrated intel. for instance I've got an older, higher wattage A10-7890k that can play fortnite somewhat reasonably. the little embedded A10's seem to have less oomph though.

    HPE EC200A Xeon D-1518 'hybrid server' on ebay ~$150

    Pretty sure I edited my passthru.map on esxi 6.7 to pass through a sata controller on a socket 2011-3 motherboard. so I'd try to give it a shot.

    1U Supermicro Server 6x 10GBE RJ45 X10SLH-LN6TF LGA 1150 H3 X10SLH-N6-ST031

    I have no idea. Maybe basic ping test, maybe subjective feelings of latency even doing something like remote desktop, or maybe performance over remote file shared like large transfers or a database or something. Oh and.cpu utilization.during iperf3!

    1U Supermicro Server 6x 10GBE RJ45 X10SLH-LN6TF LGA 1150 H3 X10SLH-N6-ST031

    Any idea what the latency is? Any significant difference in regular usage?

    Bumping to see if anyone has tried using this as a glorified Ethernet switch? If so how has it worked for you? Any setup or usage problems?

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

    So this super old thread was super useful to me. I recently picked up two of the Emulex oce11102-n-xi cards for $15 each off ebay. I only put them in x16 slots so I didn't have any physical fit problems. I DID have the problem of them showing "link down" and no lights on when I plugged in two...

    My new build: Xeon E-2186

    what kind of array are your spinners in? I wouldn't sweat FreeNAS getting "too many" cores, esxi seems to handle CPU oversubscription fine. Also... water cooling?

    Stacker cheap server cluster with 3 Asus Z9PH-D16's

    What a strange board. Dual 20pin ATX connector, and a molex? But no 12v EPS that I could see? strange.
