    FS: (3) Supermicro MBD-A1SAI-2750F and (1) case

    I think you meant to say "Possibly cheaper to get the Avoton up and running", because again, I can get it up and running for less than the price of the Xeon board by itself. Ergo, there is no way it can be cheaper to get the Xeon up and running. We now resume our regularly scheduled For Sale...

    FS: (3) Supermicro MBD-A1SAI-2750F and (1) case

    Kind of an "apples-to-oranges" comparison, don't ya think? Granted you get a bunch of newer stuff on the X10 board, but only half the interfaces and cpu. You'll also pay more for DDR4. I think it really depends on your use case which is better. For $350, I could take one of the used boards, add...

    FS: (3) Supermicro MBD-A1SAI-2750F and (1) case

    I've been lucky picking up some Xeon-D gear recently, so it's time to sell off my Avoton gear. I have (1) new-in-box Supermicro A1SAI-2750F and (2) used. The new in box has never taken out of the box or static bags. The used ones do include the faceplate. The new one sells online for about...

    WTB: Avoton board/ram plus small case.

    I'm getting ready to swap out my server for rackmount. It's a A1SAi-2750F in a DS308B with a IBM M1015 and Noctua fans. I currently have it on a picoPSU just for the inside space savings, and am running 32GB of the Kingston ECC memory. I also have a new-in-the-box UNAS NSC-800 w/the USB3.0...

    FS:Supermicro X8SIL-F LGA 1156 Bundle, SM Sata DOM 64GB

    Dumb question: can the SM SATA DOM be used in non-SM boards, assuming you either have a yellow SATA port or power pins? Also, does your come with the cable?

    AOC-3008-L8i: which firmware to use? Supermicro or Avago?

    I just got my first one and it shipped with the current Supermicro v6 IR firmware. I wanted IT mode for ZFS, so I reflashed via UEFI to Supermicro v6 IT. But I see Avago offers v8 for the LSI 9300-8i card and that there is also an updated BIOS available. My understanding is that the AOC is the...

    Storage sale: 6x WD 3TB green, U-NAS NSC-800 case, Rosewill 8-drive enclosure

    My experience was just the opposite - I ran these for over 2 years with no problems, aside from the 2 drives that outright died. My biggest problem was that the jump in drive sizes was going to push my scrub time out further than I was comfortable with. Probably. But then I'd be dealing with...
