I got mine from a different person on eBay for $100 a few weeks ago with the idea of it going into the main server for the kids to game/Blender on the user using Moonlight, etc.
It's now sitting in my Pop_OS 22.04 LTS desktop (that's Linux btw, for you Windows users) along side my VEGA64 and...
- buy at your own risk as the seller has numerous complaints of customer service / post - purchase support. Like, returns, wrong orders, missing parts etc. They will basically ghost you until you open an eBay claim.
- all drives are 4yr to 5yr old with 50,0000 hours (24/7/365...
Supermicro PDUs (from Supermicro chassis) always gives "lower-than-actual" results, at anything less than 100W. the PDUs, all versions, all tend to be not accurate at all at low power usage. My sources for that statement are the various 7x Supermicro chassis's I've had, and have currently, and...
Almost there (with 10x LFF HDDs).
Will pull the 2nd CPU and extra 6x DIMMs before its finished, and move to a pair of SSDs.
Overtime, I'll rotate in more SATA6-based HDDs - so I can remove the SAS2 OCP card for a very low-powered, disk-suspended backup server. Not bad overall.
How you measure wattage can be vastly different. The BMC reporting from the onboard PDU of your dual PSUs does not equal actual outlet power usage. Same with Windows software measuring the package usage. Also, UPS with displays that can show watts in real time is also a joke.
I measure at...
I'm dipping my toes into some live streaming on youtube.
Like right now, I am modifying a 1U server I posted in the Great Deals section to go from 4 HDDs to 10 HDDs. This involves CAD, 3D Printing, and the Hyve server.
Would it be allowed to post a link to my live stream, say in the Chassis...
Update on power usage. So, sticking in a 2nd CPU and another 6x sticks of ram jumps the power usage by 30 watts!
CPU, Memory, Dual-SPF28
Power Usage @ Desktop Idle
1x 3106 CPU, 6x 2133Mhz, Dual SFP28 OCP
2x 3106 CPU, 12x 2133Mhz, Dual SFP28 OCP
Kids and their ongoing, and new weekly sicknesses... Argh. I am heading to the store today to ship out the remaining of everyone's packages. Apologies for the delays!
As a reminder in the OP, no freight forwarders.
The 3x SM883 1.92 TB are back up. :(
Just set an ebay price alert. I've had more luck with 3rd party ebay monitors than ebay themselves - especially to capture things faster just as they are listed.
Mine came from Australia. But I also have picked up a few on these forums for $220-ish. Set an alert because the low-cost items go...
All Intel Core-i CPUs are built to support ECC. It's just Intel disables ECC on i5 and i7, so they don't compete with the Xeon series.
This includes almost all i3 and low-end Pentium/Atom CPUs all supporting ECC. Some i5 models over a couple of Tick generations had ECC as they were basically...
I'm just jumping in here to say... That was exactly my sentiment for my homeserver of the past 10 years (E5 V3 generation). However, I hit far too many limits with that way of thinking.
The biggest was the limited Ghz speeds of E5 V1-V4, where Plex transcoding can't happen with 4K (and...
This may be my last update as I'm done fracking with this machine.
CPU0: OCP x16 and OCP x8
CPU0: 8x SATA + 6x sSATA (secondary SATA)
CPU1: both x16 PCIe 3.0 Risers (yes, neither riser works without both CPUs!)
CPU1: M.2 Slot (that's right! you can't use the M.2 slot without both CPUs!)
