    CPU & Memory options for X9QRi-F+

    I was able to reset the BMC and validate that the BIOS is at 3.0a. No need to drill holes...Just add bracket (MCP-220-00044-0N) to the peripheral drawer. Do you know if this will run with dual proc's in #1 and #4 or do I need to buy 4 procs at once?

    Hitachi Harddisks Thread (5K3000, 7K3000, 7K2000)

    Thank you. I currently have 580 on all of my 0F12117 drives. Can they be directly upgraded to A10? or do they have to be incrementally patched? I have a ZFS RAIDZ2 pool running on a M1015 controller. One of the drives has faulted. I took the drive out and ran DFT on it and there were no errors...

    Norco vs. other solutions

    This is my first build of this type of complexity, so call me a noob. I have been working on the specs for my All-in-One storage server and although the Norco 4220 is overkill for me at the moment (initially using 6-8 drives for data - RAIDZ), it does give me future expandability and the overall...
