    Anyone using tape drives?

    I have about 60TB of data stored accross 1TB-8TB drives in 3 machines+boxes. Dell T7610 and Lenovo P510 won't identify >3TB SATA. Need a (ideally) cheap solution. Is anyone using tape drives for cold storage? What tape backup systems+tape types would you recommend?

    ASRock Rack EPYCD8/ROMED8-2T GPU clearance

    Great, My 2 options I'm looking at are ASRock rack ROMED8 and Supermicro Supermicro H12SSL from what I can tell either would be fine for a multi-gpu rig.

    ASRock Rack EPYCD8/ROMED8-2T GPU clearance

    I can't find any specs on the height of the 2* mini SAS controllers on these boards. Are they tall enough to prevent full length GPU's from being fully inserted into the upper pcie slots?. I'd hate to buy one of these cards and find full length gpus couldn't fit.

    IT mode card for Dell R720

    After buying a Dell PERC h710 mini for an R720 server that had no controller card, I now find that in order to run drives without RAID copy (I need the storage space, don't really care for redundancy) I can only run RAID 0 which requires me to turn the disks into one big drive. Problem is I want...

    Dell R720 no drives detected

    Decided to finally pull the server out of storage to sell it, and found, after 2 hours or checking that the h710 mini was not properly seated in the socket. Once firmly in, then it appeared in the startup text and could <CTL><R> into setup for it.

    AU Fulfilled- [WTB] 2x Xeon Gold 20+ core CPUs

    (No longer required) Xeon gold CPUs seem to be in the sweet spot for price/performance, platinum seem overpriced. Any of the following would do 6152 6148 6138 6122 To give an indication of what these are going for on eBay, the 6152 (which is the top of the range I'm looking at) are USD $299...

    Dell R720 no drives detected

    I worked out there is no raid controller card (mini type) - its empty just in from of the back right region of server. I have a H310 (pcie adalter type) card from a T3600 workstation, can i use this? If i plug it into pcie slot, what cables do i need to attach to enable the backplate?

    You mention the Cisco C220 M4 SFF "v2" server is missing some main bits such as psu's, but 2xPSU's are mentioned in the description. Do you have heatsink(s) to go with this?
