    Brocade ICX Series (cheap & powerful 10gbE/40gbE switching)

    Yes, it does. Not sure what the minimum is though. I designed and tested a tach multiplier using an Arduino board but never got around to installing it.

    Thanks fohdeesha....this is the one that confused me. https://forums.servethehome.com/index.php?threads/brocade-icx-series-cheap-powerful-10gbe-40gbe-switching.21107/page-119#post-241628 The ICX6450 will tag a slow fan as failed but will still boot and run. The ICX7250, at least in my case...

    Update: Looks like the Sunon and other slower fans aren't fast enough for the switch. Received this through the console: FATAL ERROR: At least one good FRU fan should be present in the system System is shutting down!!!

    Yeah, not sure why. I'll try to connect with the console cable and see if I can get a hint as to what's going on. Surprised it kept rebooting.

    Brocade ICX Series (cheap & powerful 10gbE/40gbE switching)

    Just for kicks, I tried this with the ICX7250-24. First, I placed the slower Sunon fan into the unit but it caused the unit to go into a boot loop (any slower fan that I tried did the same). The unit would do the high speed fan startup but when finally going to the slower running speed, it...

    Brocade ICX Series (cheap & powerful 10gbE/40gbE switching)

    Thanks! I'm going to swap the fans with the slower Sunon fans and then just mount and try it. If I feel that it's getting too hot or loud (from heat), I'll swap direction and see if it makes a difference. Just seemed that pushing air into the bottom and letting it rise with the hot air...

    Brocade ICX Series (cheap & powerful 10gbE/40gbE switching)

    Thanks again to @fohdeesha for the great guide. Just flashed and setup an ICX7250-24 to go with the ICX6450-24 previously setup. Also like to thank @arglebargle for the cable guide to convert the ICX6450-24 console cable to the mini USB cable used by the ICX7250-24 using a keystone jack to...

    Brocade ICX Series (cheap & powerful 10gbE/40gbE switching)

    Quick fan question (sorry if already posted). I'm thinking about mounting the ICX7250-24 on a wall with the intake vent facing up (to get the ports facing the way that I would like) and the exhaust fan at the lower back side. However, in the current configuration, the air would be pulled from...

    If this post is not allowed, I'll edit it. With that said, if anyone is looking for a lower price ICX6450-24, one popped up on eBay for $145 shipped OR BEST OFFER (free shipping and includes console cable according to listing). These ARE NOT my listing, just thought I would pass it on. You...

    Just a quick pop-in to say that I'm joining the party as a novice. Picked up an ICX 6450-24 to get 10Gbit into the house (don't need - just want). Thanks to everyone who has contributed to this thread but a special thanks to @fohdeesha for not only getting it started but to post so many...
