    SATADOM 2 to 3 pin cables - How can I make them?

    Was about to buy the parts and decided to check clearances for the cables on the SATADOMs. I had planned to run two of these in a mirrored ZFS array to boot FreeNAS from. Unfortunately, the modules would be too close together to allow the connection of the power cable on one of them. Alas, I...

    SATADOM 2 to 3 pin cables - How can I make them?

    Here are the parts that I have found for this project. Innodisk SATADOM-ML 3SE Series (Dell specific revision 0T4M4) No 7 pin power, must be powered with 5v cable. Uses two contacts (+ and -) on a three contact connector. Cable requires Molex 511460300 connector. (NB: for a two pin version...

    SATADOM 2 to 3 pin cables - How can I make them?

    Thank you, @Markess! This got me pointed in the right direction, and I've found the part on Digikey that will work with the three pin connection to the Innodisk SATADOM-ML Industrial 3SE (0T4M4) part. A little more digging on Molex and Digikey any I'm certain I'll find the connector for the...

    SATADOM 2 to 3 pin cables - How can I make them?

    Looking for some advice here. I have a couple SATADOMs that don't receive power from the yellow 7 pin on my X10 Supermicro board. I need to power via a tiny connector on the board, and an even tinyer connector on the SATADOM. These cables cost about $30 Canadian. Ouch! Any suggestions on how...

    Budget HTPC build, for $300 how does this look?

    Hi @SwanRonson, I've built and used HTPC for the past 10-15 years. I now use an Nvidia Shield TV Pro, and it is fantastic. The hardware works great, plus you get a controller and a remote that both allow headphone connections. I run it as a Plex server with media coming from a FreeNAS box, but...

    UTM: Sophos and Supermicro

    I'm confused. You mention USB 3.0 support, but the A1SRM-2558F board, which this build thread is about, doesn't have USB 3.0. On the A1SRM-2558F I had no troubles mounting an iso over IPMI, and running the install that way. No keyboard or USB required. Do you have a thread that we can...

    UTM: Sophos and Supermicro

    I bought the case, power supply, and motherboard together, which also came with a blower fan, and fan partition. However, it did not come with a drive mounting bracket.

    Good news: The parts for this build arrived this week. Bad news: Unfortunately, the power supply that came with the SuperMicro case was DOA.

    @CreoleLakerFan Sorry for the late reply. I just recently ordered the parts, which should arrive this week. I will update this post during the build phase, and provide some feedback on how the system is working. In the end I ordered the following: Build’s Name: Portico Operating System/...

    @spyrule Sophos offers a free version for home users, which comes with a three year license.

    UTM: Sophos and Supermicro

    @Patrick Thank you for the feedback. I had originally decided against the C2558 as I didn't want to loose the extra 200MHz that the Turbo Boost would have provided. However, with the Sophos UTM potentially using Snort with QuickAssist API's enabled, it looks like I may be better off with...
