    Hi. I know you can use E5-2xxx processors on single processor motherboards. What about E5-4XXX processors? I assume the answer is the same for E5-4XXXL, the lower power variant. Regards

    Can vlan1 (switch default) be considered for use with ssid without vlan tagging?

    Need help to reset Supermicro motherboard that is password protected

    Finally got password removed from the motherboard. What I did was using the SUPER.ROM method :D. Saw online that using a fat or fat32 formatted usb (no need to be bootable), place a recent copy of bios, and rename it to SUPER.ROM. With USB plugged, hold on to ctrl+home, power on the system...

    Si far, I have tried to update the bios for my X10SLM+-LN4F. That's when it says it's incompatible. Now, how do I update the bios for BMC? So far, no access to BMC.

    So... Did as instructed, unfortunately, after checking, it says something about incompatibility, and ended back in EFI Shell prompt. How do I update the BMC instead? Will give it a try. I also heard Supermicro guys are super helpful. I'll try send them an email, see if I can get any bios...

    Need help to reset Supermicro motherboard that is password protected

    If it's the bios that's password protected, am I not supposed to be able to proceed and boot from USB if I'm not going to change anything in the Bios?

    Seagate ST6000NM0074 6TB 7.2k 12Gb/s SAS SED Internal Hard Drive HOT DEAL!

    Thank you for your validation. My concern now is how much more electricity will a constant spinning sas drive use? AM I to assume that accessing data is somewhat faster since drives don't spin down? AM I also right to assume performance of Sas2 drives is slightly better than actual maximum...
