    DL380/ML350 G6 - best bang for buck CPUs?

    Picked up some freebies with quad core Westmere 1366 CPUs (2xDL380 G6 and 1xML350G6). All 3 were pretty loaded (144-192gb of DDR3) and at 24x1tb between the 3. I don't want to invest much into these boxes but at a minimum I'd like to upgrade each of them to a pair of 6 core CPUs. What direction...

    Does Intel Skylake X299 HEDT have a PCIe problem?

    I was originally pretty excited about hearing the news on Skylake X CPUs. But then I started looking at the specs and until you get to i9 7900x you're locked down to 16 or 28 PCIe 3.0 lanes. This seems insane to me, unless I'm just missing something. A pair of x16 GPUs, a pair of x4 NVME...

    I have an x9dai that does not want to boot from anything, period. It recognizes RAM & CPUs, does not report any errors via beeps or in BIOS. I've cleared CMOS via SM's instructions. Reset all BIOS settings to defaults, etc. No luck. I've tried using the CTRL-HOME with SUPER.BIN latest BIOS on...

    WTB: Xeon E5 v2 26xx CPUs

    Picked up a cheap, brand new SuperMicro SuperWorkstation 7047A-T and need to get some E5 26xx procs for it. I prefer V2 (ES is acceptable if they're a confirmed matched working pair) but would consider non-ES 8+ core V1 procs as well. Whatcha got? E

    I managed to pick up a SuperMicro SuperWorkstation 7047A-T with the optional 8x2.5" upper drive bay which I plan on using as a virtualization workstation (2012 R2 Hyper-V with nested vSphere 5.5 perhaps?). I have 8x3tb ST3000VN001 & 8x120gb M500 for storage. I'll be using an LSI 9210-8i for the...
