    Do quiet high pressure fans for a home server exist?

    If you need higher RPM Noctua fans, I'm running a NF-F12PWM-iPPC3000 in my Dell PowerEdge T430 server chassis since its basically a straight replacement. They make a 2000rpm and 3000rpm option with PWM:

    Windows Server OS via eBay

    I bought two Windows Server 2019 Enterprise licenses last summer. I recently reactivated one of them after redoing my homelab server. Still working like a charm. Sellers may be hit or miss but these keys activate properly, but are most likely against the terms of service/EULA that are legally...

    [WTB] 2x Intel Xeon E5-2667 v3 processors

    Looking to revamp my Dell PowerEdge T430 server at home with some higher clocks for trimming transcoding time. So far the best option I can see is two E5-2667 v3s. Ideally, I'd like to have the v4 option but those are prohibitively expensive for this purpose right now. I think used options are...

    Just to clarify, are you looking for the 4x M.2 VROC expansion card or the 1x M.2 option?

    Samsung PM863 3.84TB 2.5" SSD MZ7LM3T8HCJM MZ-7LM3T80 (Low Usage)

    This is a good price for an OEM/Enterprise-rated SATA drive. 6-9 months ago these were going for >$400 apiece used on eBay. I'm glad I bought what I bought brand new, but this is a pretty slick price for a 3.84TB Samsung drive, especially if buying in bulk. FWIW, I bought 8x Seagate Nytro...

    LSI RAID Controller and HBA Complete Listing Plus OEM Models

    I recently switched up my homelab Dell T430 server to be running an eBay'ed Dell PERC H740P. I can say with a rather large amount of glee that everything SAS/SATA-related on the H740P works properly, including the controller BIOS (ctrl+R), the Dell "integrated devices" config menu (F2 just...

    Supermicro X10SDV-16C-TLN4F+ - $500

    You could easily just buy the active "+" Supermicro HSF SNK-C0057A4L and slap it on one of these boards, if that's all that's wrong with it.

    8TB QLC SSD < 800USD

    I recently bought 8x Seagate Nytro 1351 3.84TB drives for the homelab file server needs. They were ~$402 shipped per drive, brand new. While not in parity with $100 per TB like its referenced here, these are 3D TLC as opposed to QLC. I thought about some QLC stuff but wanted to be able to...

    Noise level on Dell R / T x20 series

    I had a Dell R720 in my home server room and was bothered by the minimum 20% fans speed duty when all 8 LFF bays were populated. on top of that, it moderated the fan speed 2-5% on a regular basis that was rather annoying in nearby rooms. Eventually, I picked up a T430 from eBay which has a...

    Dell R730/R7910 Fan Control

    In the iDRAC > Hardware > Fan section, there should be a Setup page, and there you should be able to specify an exhaust temperature target and/or a fan speed offset. Setting either of these different from default/off should increase the fan RPM.

    SMCI X9 Bifurcation I Why some boards but not all ?

    Does anyone know if any of these 3 cards will work on the X10SDV-TLN4F to add 4x NVMe storage targets for file serving? I don't necessarily need VROC, but merely functional PCI Express-based NVMe storage. In fact, I'm pretty sure the Xeon-D 1541 doesn't support VROC in any capacity...

    Free: Supermicro 1028GR-TR 2011-3 triple GPU 1U & a couple others

    This is why you don't use bubble wrap to ship heavy and expensive computer items... I received a server back in November that was supposedly "packed to the gills" in a generic box. It arrived in a very similar condition as this.

    Is anyone interested in the 2687W v4? I'd like this to go to a good end user rather than to be resold by a refurbisher. PM me if interested.
