    PSA: Vmware ESXi 7.0 does not like consumer NVMe drives

    Thankfully I uploaded the file here and wrote the tutorial because I just fixed my server with it again! I forgot what I did and lost the driver in my NAS... The newest vSphere update does replace the NVMe driver so it will break any patched boxes (like mine). However the old driver still works...

    PSA: Vmware ESXi 7.0 does not like consumer NVMe drives

    Just installed ESXI 7 and my Mushkin Pilot-E 1TB won't show up in ESXI. I did the stuff above and it worked now. I attached a zip file with the driver itself along with instructions I put together (based on how I did it).

    Updated: 01-23-23 - CHEAP 30.72TB NVMe SSDs! PRICE CUT 2x!!

    Taking a look at these EPYC chips; would they work in an HPE DL325 G10? I just picked up one of these servers with the 7402 but I could get my hands on another one with a much worse CPU for quite a bit less money and then upgrade the CPU if this was possible.

    HP DL325, Epyc 24 core 7402p, 64GB, SAS $1611

    the more expensive one has 10gbe ethernet and possibly something with NVMe. I just got mine working with older Gen9 SAS SSD and a PCI-E to NVMe adapter along with cheap ram from ebay. Quite the deal really if you can put this all together.

    HP DL325, Epyc 24 core 7402p, 64GB, SAS $1611

    They aren't even shipping them from most vendors at this point in time. I checked where I Got mine from and it says May delivery. The ebay seller is "away" and they have no return date set on ebay.

    Really? I never realized that OVH used completely custom motherboards. I know they have datacenters with custom servers for this "building wide" water cooling loop but never thought about custom motherboards themselves.

    £2.5k budget for a beast machine.. recommendations request

    Well since he already has a 7700K machine, he could just leave that system for recording and then build this new TR system for everything else? Or maybe if everything else doesn't need so much then he should just go with a 3900X / 3950X system and save a bunch. This way he could have a better...

    £2.5k budget for a beast machine.. recommendations request

    Well he basically has his system build there. Personally I wouldn't waste time with an all in one loop as they add complexity and maintenance that you are unlikely to want to do (unless you enjoy opening your computer and messing around with it).

    How are you measuring it and what system are you using it on?

    £2.5k budget for a beast machine.. recommendations request

    Go for 64GB of ram, don't do NVMe RAID.... I would just invest in some MLC SSD's if that is a big deal to you. But if you are recording from IP cameras why not put that stuff on a HDD?

    Comparison: Intel i350-T4 Genuine vs Fake

    Wow, I was just shopping for some of these cards and came across this thread. I never knew that there were fake ethernet cards. Have other cards been found to be fake also? Like possibly the wifi cards? I have seen some impossibly cheap Intel wifi cards on ebay also.

    32GB DDR4-2666 RDIMMs $85 ea

    So these TSV ones have been failing for you then? I guess I will avoid them as I will be rolling out to production servers.

    32GB DDR4-2666 RDIMMs $85 ea

    I figured that so I am going to upgrade all my memory modules :) I will sell the memory that came with the server as each stick seems to be going for $250ish on ebay.

    What a weird board... I wonder if any more will pop up. Could be a cool project if it works.

    Specifically to this TSV memory. The server I just purchased comes with 32GB RDIMM's so I know it works :)
