    Yeah I buy a lot of stuff from them, good to work with. Sometimes there are problems but they always fix them for us. Like, this batch, didn't come with the caddies but my sales guy says they'll get that fixed.

    Not allowed to take photos at that part of the datacenter unfortunately. Where I can take pictures, the 5 pallets of servers definitely won't fit at one time. CPUs, we don't have many of those yet, we'll order those as-needed. Going with Dual E5-2695v3 and Dual E5-2699v3 depending what our...

    Supermicro Chassis or Power Supply to GPUs

    Glad to have helped! "I don't imagine the "good" PDU (PDB-PT826-8824) is compatible with the CSE-846 (4U) enclosure" PDB-PT826-8824 -- appears to be a 2u power distrbution board, from a quick google search. So, in that case, no, it won't be compatible. If you don't mind a ghetto server build...

    Bought a supermicro 846 and I was hoping to upgrade the power distributor psu

    Sure, glad to help. As a bottom line, I've not had any problem powering a single nvidia gpu off this type of configuration. Typically I use the 8 pin cpu connector with the cable previously discussed, and then I'l take the 4+4 power plug and use half of it for one cpu and half for the other...

    Looking for new motherboard for low power NVMe server

    Also for U.2 SSDs, ebay has a good stock of 1.6tb P3605 SSDs. 3.84tb Samsung and 4tb Intels are showing up occasionally as well.

    Bought a supermicro 846 and I was hoping to upgrade the power distributor psu

    Also it's really dicey to replace the 4u PDBs. And the "gpu specific" PDBs are barely any better than the standard one for power delivery. Even the PDB with 8x 8 pin connectors designed to be used in a 4-gpu server, definitely will -not- power 4x 1080ti gpus, even at reduced power limit of 200w...

    Bought a supermicro 846 and I was hoping to upgrade the power distributor psu

    Also, regarding molex to sata, we had a very large number of those burn up. All the same model / manufacturer (connector had 4 dots / dimples on them). Ended up having to go through all of our servers and look for that specific model to replace with another one. They were like time bombs. Ok for...

    Bought a supermicro 846 and I was hoping to upgrade the power distributor psu

    Have used plenty of them. No issues. The molex ones are a bit dicey, as the pins tend to fall out when mating the connectors, and often don't make a secure connection. I've had at least one of those burn up. The 2-molex to 2-pcie is mostly ok for a 1080ti 8+6 pin, if the pdb is a good model...

    Bought a supermicro 846 and I was hoping to upgrade the power distributor psu

    There's an official supermicro cable, 8-pin EPS (CPU) power connector to dual 8-pin gpu power connectors. Supermicro part number CBL-0424L Should do the trick.

    159$ US 'new' Quanta D51B-1U LGA2011-3 Server Best Offer

    At $80 it sure is hard to argue. What I saw most recently, was more like, $350 for E5-4669v3 vs $600 or thereabouts for E5-2699v3, which is a decent reduction based on both being 18 cores. However, with the lower clock speed, it's more fair to compare the 18 core E5-4669v3 @ $350 against a 16...

    All-cores-turbo seems to be substantially lower on 46xx vs equivalent 26xx cpus: http://www.intel.com/content/dam/www/public/us/en/documents/specification-updates/xeon-e5-v3-spec-update.pdf Say, E5-2695v3 and E5-2699v3 have an all cores turbo of 2.8ghz, vs only 2.4ghz on the equivalent...
