    20-pin ATX + Supermicro PJ1 port?

    On a related note, does anyone know what type of connector is used for the PJ1 port, i.e. the small end of the CBL-PWEX-1063 adapter cable? Thinking of upgrading to an Epyc 3000 series motherboard and would prefer to make a custom cable rather than using the adapter.

    BR10i and i5-2390t are still available. I'll leave it up for now, but may list them on eBay in a couple days.

    searching for low-power embedded mITX motherboard

    I'm in kind of the same boat with my E3-1240v3 home server (ASRock E3C226D2I ITX motherboard), which was loud and heating up my home office like crazy especially in the summer months. The X10SDV-2C-TLN2F with the D-1508 is tempting, but first I figured I would try to optimize what I have. So...

    Asrock C226 ITX soon

    I've been running for a while longer with the fans set to "SmartFan" and it seems to actually be working pretty well. The e3-1240 idles around 50C with fan at low speed and goes to about 80C and full fan when running folding@home. Initially, I was getting under-speed errors on the fans in the...

    Asrock C226 ITX soon

    Yes, I think the range was actually something like 23W to 30W depending on fan speed. I chose to report the 23W number, as it's more representative of a fully-idle system with the fans turned down.

    I used a Kill A Watt to measure the power consumption.

    Haswell vs Avoton for Mini-ITX NAS?

    I am/was in a similar situation and decided to go with the ASRock E3C226D2I. For pure low-power home NAS usage, the ASRock C2750D4I (Avoton) looks perfect. However, for my purposes I also use this box to run a Windows 8 instance that I use from various thin clients, plus a general VM sandbox...

    Switched & Per-port metered PDU

    I just received my Ubiquiti mPower Pro yesterday. They were backordered, but there seems to be some inventory coming in. So far I'm very happy with it. The price is much better than the Echola option, and so far it seems to do what I wanted, which is monitoring the power consumption of the...

    Switched & Per-port metered PDU

    Nice, thank you very much for the pointer. The mPower Pro looks like a good alternative to the Echola power strip at less than half the cost. The software looks a bit different, and there's apparently no SNMP currently, but it should get the job done.

    Asrocks new C2750 & C2550 boards (12 SATA ports and IPMI).

    These boards definitely look interesting. Is there any info on whether Avoton supports VT-d? I don't see it in the specs, but sometimes the Intel info can be a little ambiguous.

    E3-1230 vs. E3-1230L for home server

    Hi, I have a similar ESXi setup that I built a couple years ago. Lian Li Q25 mini ITX case with Intel DQ67EP, i5-2390t, IBM BR10i 8x SATA card, 3x 3.5" green drives and 4x 2.5" HDD. Overall, I've been very happy with this setup for my home file server and a couple of Windows and Linux VMs...

    Switched & Per-port metered PDU

    I'm looking for the same thing. Best I've found so far is the Echola SPDU-108L. Does just what I want, but at $269 it's not exactly cheap. SPDU-108L, 15A, 8-outlet, Smart Desktop Power Distribution Unit with Outlet real-time power or energy monitoring Otherwise, there's a chance of finding...

    Asrock C226 ITX soon

    By the way, the manual is online at the ASRock site and does specifically mention VT-d, so it looks like it'll already be there in the BIOS.

    Asrock C226 ITX soon

    I've been keeping an eye on this one too for my ESXi home server. Currently I'm using a low power i5-2390t and the Intel DQ67EP motherboard which supports VT-d with my 8-port RAID card, but unfortunately it lacks IPMI for hardware monitoring in ESXi. It'd be nice to upgrade to a real server...
