    EU HP MSA70 24,99€

    i honestly don't know for that model, but from me experience, trays are usually made specifically to a model line, and usually won't work with a different one. for example, that's a storageworks ma70. if you look in the manual, there's a couple of different editions that have a different number...

    EU HP MSA70 24,99€

    linuxmanbg: i don't have one, but i'd say it should... assuming they're 2.5” drives that are backwards compatible to 3gbps or straight up 3gbps, and you can find a sled/tray for each drive, as this doesn't look trayless, especially without having front doors built in.

    EU HP MSA70 24,99€

    :) i ended up going 12g myself after watching a friend **** with a pile of netapp and emc stuff for far too long. well, 12g for the ssds, and a bunch of hgst 7k6000 for bulk. i'm rambling tonight, but the single best storage purchase i've ever made was the hp lto-6 tape drive. around 2 months...

    EU HP MSA70 24,99€

    good price, but without the sleds/trays and limited to sata v2 and sas v1 (3gbps) and 2.5” drives, you would have to get a fantastic deal on the sleds/trays to stick the drives in, and an spanking phenomenal deal on 400-1.2GB ssds to put in, as spinners won't be worth the effort, noise, or...

    Mellanox ConnectX-3 on ebay look strange

    it appears these cages were to control airflow in a 1u ot 2u rack server. noisy little beasts of 40mm fans, sometimes 40x56mm!! and often shredding air at nearly 30,000 rpm while screaming like a constipated deamon child trying to pass yoko ono... while on fire. oh, and there's a large number of...

    Cisco Nexus N5K-C5020P-BF 40-Port 10Gb Switch $75

    dear goddess below, that thing is going to suck power like tornado tommy tom and a chrome trailer hitch! ... and person who saw the whole thing probably screamed as like the fans in that thing... running full bore, that will suck 12.5 amps @ 120v!

    If you are indeed an average/enthusiast user who mainly surfs, watches movies, and occasionally games, don't get either of your selections. In your situation, both will be a pain in the ass for negative benefit. In the case of the ES QEYA chips, they're alpha/pre beta, so are probably not that...

    x10sl7f nmi missing

    people do strange things with pcb revisions. could also be a manufacturing error. it's not a feature i've seen used often, although i can't think saving a penny or so would actually be worth it for supermicro.

    male mpo guide pins

    i have a few female mpo cables that need a sex change. i've seen a few videos that show how to disassemble a *male* mpo termination (not the funky gender bending panduit ones, but the cheap ones) and remove the guide pins. this doesn't look difficult. what i need help with is finding the male...

    thanks! i've been checking ebay: that's where i got the first one, and lost the second auction by a few dollars. taobao...kinda frightens me. while i have found a few e5-2667v3 "qs" (even es is qs there, lol), i can't figure out which qcode they are. i was kinda hoping there would be a forum...
