    Fan connector housing and crimps

    Interesting, it shows as active and in stock for all of the main US suppliers. It looks like Farnells in the UK has some, but the MOQ is pretty high.. I have a box of maybe 20 spares at the moment.. All Noctua, NMB, Foxconn, etc.. My typical process is to replace any stock fans with Sanyo...

    Searching for small Ryzen system with 3x NVMe and ECC

    Should be a pretty straightforward DIY build with a Streacom FC8 and an Asrock B550 ITX board.

    Optane P1600X 58GB $40

    I use it for ZFS boot drive for a bare-metal OPNsense setup, works fine. Have another two that I will be using in for ZFS RAID1 for a Proxmox install next week, don't think there'll be any issues.

    E5v4 Xeon vs EPYC AI acceleration? (CPU utilization differences between platforms)

    Yeah, you'll have to rebuild with the specific library in mind no matter what. Though you should be able to just create a new environment in Conda that uses numpy with a different math library without affecting your current setup.

    ECC RAM in AMD Ryzen Laptops?

    ECC RAM requires a set of physical traces on the motherboard, which manufacturers tend to omit if not ECC support is not explicitly stated. With modern boards ECC should be automatically enabled in the BIOS if its supported by the motherboard/chipset.

    Dell Optiplex 3000 Thin Client

    Innodisk M.2 ethernet adapters use DB9 spacing, the DF Robot looks like it does too. One thing to watch out for is that on Dell TMMs, there is a sheet metal mounting point that obstructs the mounting area by the AUX port slot, which is intended for Dell's own modules to latch onto. You'll...

    E5v4 Xeon vs EPYC AI acceleration? (CPU utilization differences between platforms)

    Interesting, it could be worth trying to switch to MKL w/ the debug override or OpenBLAS then.

    E5v4 Xeon vs EPYC AI acceleration? (CPU utilization differences between platforms)

    Would check to see if your numpy is using Intel MKL or OpenBLAS

    M.2 NVMe cooling necessary?

    PCIE Gen. 3 drives typically don't, while its much preferred with Gen. 4 drives. Your P31 is Gen. 3 while your SN850 is Gen. 4.

    ROMED8-2T Finally Replaced (RMA), Won't Boot with New GPUs

    I had to take apart my first system to redo the watercooling loop and upgraded to 3.40 BIOS and 1.27 BMC. Was able to update the BIOS through the web interface without any issues.

    [FS] [US-MD] Watercooled Quadro GP100s w/ NVLink

    Looking to sell a pair of Quadro GP100s that were pulled from a working, water-cooled system along side a pair of GP/GV100 compatible NVLink connectors. The waterblocks are made by Bitspower and have been pressure tested and do not leak. Unfortunately I do not have the original coolers or...

    MicroATX All in one zfs upgrade

    I'd argue that being able to use ECC with an integrated GPU is a functional improvement over the non-Pro APUs.

    ROMED8-2T Finally Replaced (RMA), Won't Boot with New GPUs

    No problem. The first ROMED8-2T system I built was very unpredictable in its display output, but that one had 5 GPUs, even with the onboard VGA set to primary. The second ROMED8-2T system I built was much more consistent when turning setting primary VGA to PCIE. Yes, I think you're updating...

    ROMED8-2T Finally Replaced (RMA), Won't Boot with New GPUs

    Glad to help. I've run into the display issue before as well, it's disappointing that there isn't an option to set a specific GPU as the primary display. Try reverting to the 3.40 BIOS. I had multiple problems with the 3.50 BIOS. With 3.40 I was able to edit the BIOS settings via the IPMI...

    MicroATX All in one zfs upgrade

    Technically ESXI isn't supported on consumer/Pro Ryzen since there aren't any validated systems for it, but there's plenty of people out there that have got it working. Not sure about the stuttering though. Since the Pro GE line has only 35W TDP, there should be much less stress on the...

    MicroATX All in one zfs upgrade

    How about a DIY AMD system? CPU: AMD Pro 4750GE - ~170 used on ebay Motherboard: AsRockRack X470D4U - $260 new RAM: 64GB ECC UDIMM - $240 new This should be much more performant and energy efficient, and leave you enough for a chassis and storage.
