    10G Card for low-airflow workstation

    Thanks for all the thoughts guys! I have an X520 kicking around that I'm going to try a mosfet block on. It'll be at the end of the loop, but I doubt that will matter much. I'm also going to grab a few of those Mellanox cards; what a steal! I've not used Mellanox stuff much outside of some...

    10G Card for low-airflow workstation

    Hi guys, I'm looking for recommendations on a good 10G SPF+ card for use in my primary workstation. Due to the remarkably crap ventilation situation in my office, I run a somewhat unique water cooling loop; basically blocks on everything that I can manage which then route to radiators in the...

    Quanta LB6M (10GbE) -- Discussion

    If you're entering the # as part of your commands, don't. It's an indicator of what privilege level your cli is currently running in (apologies if this is obvious to you, no snark intended!). I've used the docs as reference when I was messing about with mine and they do work mostly outside of...

    Quanta LB6M (10GbE) -- Discussion

    This google drive link was posted earlier in the thread. It has Quanta documents which contain commands to run the switches, though not all features are available in the LB6M (the docs are for another model).

    Quanta LB6M (10GbE) -- Discussion

    Apologies for the double post, but I've been trying this for a good bit now. I'm fairly confident that this device doesn't support 1GBaseT at all. Unfortunate, as it would have been excellent as an intermediary as I transition the home lab systems from 1 to 10. A few people mentioned that...

    Quanta LB6M (10GbE) -- Discussion

    I still can't get this thing figured out for 1GB links of any type. Can anyone who has successfully used them share some details? FW version you're on, port config, Module type etc. It would be greatly appreciated! I'm on FW 1.2.0.18, and have tried GLC, and just about every variety of HP...

    Quanta LB6M (10GbE) -- Discussion

    Huh; wonder if it doesn't recognize BaseT SFPs. Has anyone gotten it to work with copper? Like tby, I'm keen to eliminate some of my gigabit BaseT switching by consolidating with the LB6M.

    Quanta LB6M (10GbE) -- Discussion

    Speaking of 1GbE, I can't seem to make mine work with any of the SFPs I've tried so far. My interfaces seem to be locked to 10GbE. How exactly did you get them working? I've tried modules from HP, Cisco, Finisar, and various knockoffs I've got lying about. None seem to be recognized. I'm...
