    FS: Netgear XS708E 10Gb 8 Port switch (x2)

    I have recently upgraded my home lab networking equipment so i have a few switches that i no longer need. I wanted to give the STH community first dibs before i posted them on ebay. These switches are priced to move and would be the great starting of a homelab (hence the reason i orignally...

    Memory for E3 series

    The recommended memory for E3 Xeons is DDR3 ECC UDIMM's. This doesn't mean that non ECC memory wont work as there are some consumer boards (meant for Core i series) that also happen to work with Xeon's (normally unofficially). Your best bet is the see if the vendor of the motherboard has a...

    LSI SAS 9265-8i 6Gb/s 1GB cache RAID 170$ !?!

    I have this exact card (I paid much more for it a few years ago) and you can set WRITE THROUGH without a BBU no problem. In fact this is currently how my RAID Array is set (though protected by a UPS).

    WHS, Low power AM1 build.

    I have done some initial testing on supported 10G NICs with Nanoboot and physical box with usb boot drive. 1. Intel X540-T2 = Supported (I assumed this would work as the actual synology line lets you purchase these specific nics for add in) 2. Mellanox Connect X2 - Not currently supported...

    Question: How to shutdown multiple ESXI Hosts with 1 UPS???

    33_viper_33 that's awesome I'll look into that as well. I also much rather an efficient ups n I can see the value in that. Is the APC software that's required for shutting down VMware hosts free? I wasn't sure about eBay for ups purchases just due to shipping costs since batteries weigh a lot...

    Question: How to shutdown multiple ESXI Hosts with 1 UPS???

    Yeah I thought about something like that but for home use wouldn't that be somewhat expensive? I mean I think $250.00 or below would be a good goal for this but I don't think I want to spend $400 or above for the ups + network card ? Any idea on doing this for less than $250.00?

    Question: How to shutdown multiple ESXI Hosts with 1 UPS???

    Question for anyone out there with a home lab setup. How do you handle shutting down multiple ESXI hosts with 1 UPS? If I only had 1 host it would be easy just use USB but like most of you I have more than 1 host. I have dome some research into the topic and this seems the...

    Haswell vs Avoton for Mini-ITX NAS?

    Huh thats very intriguing. According to that website its shows to be faster than a core i5 3570K. I assume due to having more cores though i believe cinebench is synthetic definitely peaks my interests.

    HP 1810-24G...any thoughts/experience?

    When you say these work with 10g SPF are u saying they will nogotiate a 10G link between it and a Mellenox EN card or that it will negotiate a 1G link? I have had this switch 1810-24 v2 for about 2 years so I'd be very surprised if it could handle any 10g since its not in the specs.
