    Help to select a few components for Xeon E5

    Regarding ram, I recently purchased these from the same seller for my xeon-d build so model is supported. Samsung M393A4K40BB0-CPB4Q 32GB PC4-17000R DDR4-2133 ECC REG 2Rx4 Memory They accepted $150 ea for 2 so you can probably get them for cheaper if you buy 4.

    XEON-D `LIKE` on the cheap :D

    Not sure if you tried ONLY passing through the 10gb NIC? Perhaps you're running out of interrupt vectors on the host.

    Decent deal on used Intel DC S3700 100GB

    Seller accepted $70 for two when I bought mine last week. I was waiting till I got them to report if they were worth it or not. Knew they would end up here sooner or later :p. I'll post usage on the ones I receive tomorrow.

    FINAL Bachelor Build - Xeon D vSAN Cluster

    Grats on the build! It seems this is your "Lab/Home" setup so here is a friendly suggestion that may save you from wifey troubles in the future. (I've had far too many..haha). Purchase another low power firewall (edgerouter/SG-2220) or repurpose for your main home network then virtualize...

    Overdue Servers/Network Build Log

    Finally had some time to update this thread. Only managed to snag these while parts being delivered and building the NAS. No introduction needed :) Favorite Fans (noctua industrial 120mm) PM863s with 3M thin sata cables (these are fragile!) Semi-tight fit but enough air-flow In the...

    Intel Xeon D-1500 Series Discussion

    Just got my X10SDV-4C+-TLN4F and none of the sensors are working (showing not present). I tried resetting the IPMI device but still nothing. Not sure if anyone has seen something similar? FIXED: I had to boot into an OS first...odd is that normal with the xeon-d line? You don't get sensor...

    Samsung PM863 480GB $129

    Just received 4 of these today for my new NAS build and wanted to give others some information regarding them. First off, packaging was great! A lot of bubble wrap and each drive was in a sealed static bag. Drives themselves don't show any cosmetic damage. I checked the disks using...

    modular >= 850W PSU suggestions

    +1 for the EVGA G2, Using a 750 and 1300. No issues! Note, the 1300 G2 doesnt come with an ECO mode like the lower watt models but don't need it as it's pretty quiet. I did some research between the two types of PSU (P2 and G2) back when I was buying and didn't find enough of a...

    Xeon D-1518 Home server

    I saw you mentioned buying a new switch for those 10gb ports. Depending on your "layer" needs, the netgear s3300-28x is pretty good. Fairly quiet and comes with 2x10gbe ports and 2x10gb sfp+ ports. Good luck with the build! Pictures when you get a chance!

    U-NAS NSC-800+Supermicro X10SDV-TLN4F Storage Server Build

    Hey Jimmy, Good luck with the build! May I suggest reversing the rear fans for better cooling? It did wonders for my UNAS in keeping temps lower. I did end up swapping them out because I had spare high static Pressure fans. My case is louder but temps droped a little more. Give it a try and...
