    buying suggestions for DDR3 era workstations...

    zachj, " the z820/840 really only differ from the z620/z640 in the number of memory slots. See above for why I just don’t think you ought to care about this. The z8x0 machines also sell for a premium over the z6x0 machines that I just don’t think can be justified. " That's not actually true...

    10gbase-t for asrock b365m-hdv

    Hello jack16v, please clarify the difference between gb (gigabits) and GB (gigabytes) :) it seems you have some misunderstanding on that. Regarding saturation on 0.985GB/s on the X1 lane - the speed you are more likely to see with x1 PCIe 3.0 lane is around 6-7Gbps (gigabits per sec) = 650-700MB/s.

    HP Z620 shuts itself down and then powers on

    Hello friends, I use one old Z620 workstation as an ESXi host for couple of years already. But it has one really weird behavior - the workstation shuts itself down and then powers on by itself. It does this completely randomly, sometimes once per 20-30 days, most frequently once per week or...

    $5 Intel 100G CWDM4 QSFP28

    They should be working fine. Mikrotik doesn't do vendor lock for SFP modules on their switches as far as i know. I use FS and Kaiam modules in my CRS504-4XQ-IN without issues.

    NVME Breakout PLX Switch PCI-E adapter

    short answer: you have to replace the mobo :) long answer: your mobo has 2 x PCIe x16 according the specs: one of the slots is x16 and one x4. you did not mention the graphics card you use, but i assume you use x16 slot for it. If you move the GPU to x4 slot and use NVMe card to x16, then maybe...

    Sun SPARC T1000 - noisy fans

    Hello sko, thanks a lot for the detailed explanation. I fully agree with you, that this server would never be so quiet to run unnoticed. That is not my goal anyway :) I already have some equipment in my home lab, running 24/7 and small amount of noise is ok, but T1000's noise is just beyond any...

    Sun SPARC T1000 - noisy fans

    Hello STH folks, recently i've bought old Sun SPARC T1000 server, which i plan to use from time to time to play with :) However, fan noise is just unbearable. All 4 fans are spinning at almost 10k rpm, even though total server consumption is 150-180W. Even after Solaris 10 has completely...

    QSPF 100Gb Intel PSM4 to 4x25Gb LC to different computers, switches, etc?

    I use mpo/mtp SR4 (from breakout cable (5m) in my homelab and i have 4 different machines connected on 25Gbps. Never tried different speeds (25 and 10) simultaneously, so cannot tell if this would work. Keep in mind breakout cables (in my case from fs) has really short wires on break out...

    100Gb for the home... ConnectX-4 vs. -5 vs. Onmi-path?

    I use mine with Z820s, so airflow is very good, but CWDM4s definitely are getting quite hot during operation (50-55C)
