    AMD Ryzen Threadripper Pro 3975WX 32-Core Review

    while i agree that TR Pro and Epyc should be merged, why price difference is so high? for example 3955WX list price is $1,149. if we compare it with Epyc 7Fx2 series because of similar CPU Clock, Epyc 7Fx2 is more more expensive.. and could we get also single thread performance comparison too?

    What Epyc hardware equals Threadripper 2 Generation?

    it depends on how much Cores do you want and for what purpose - less cores but higher single core performance or much more cores but no that fast each one.. so, what will be your use-case for a planned server?

    Thoughts on building a silent home storage and virtualization hot swap tower server

    i think you should stay on Supermicro to avoid compatibility problems.. if you wanna bigger fans, then look at 747 series too. i have one CSE-743TQ-865B-SQ, but modded middle fan wall a bit and placed 3 120mm Noctua industrial fans. since i have not a very big load all the time, i removed rear...

    SuperMicro fans won't stop revving

    it depends on SM motherboard used. newer generations have a special feature for that: Low-noise fan speed control Last time i see something similar on my old X9SCM-iiF with Noctua Fans - you can set lower thres for zero, but this don't help at all - board thinks that fan is dead, and ramp up all...

    another option from Mikrotik will be MikroTik RB4011iGS+RM it depend of your packet size to achieve 1Gb/s or not trough VPN.. i have this device, but have not tested VPN for that speed. for me it works with Gigabit internet just fine. and don't compare it with Mikrotik Wifi - if you need wifi...

    High capacity, energy efficient, performant NAS build options?

    Thanks, missed that. but for me it depends. for my use-case i'm not wanting all ports together, but prefer building more but smaller disk arrays with each for it own controller on pass trough on different VMs. with H12SSL-C you should pass even builtin SATA controller(never did that, but will do...

    High capacity, energy efficient, performant NAS build options?

    Or would you mind AMD route? if you need additional PCIe lanes/slots, then i would suggest this route. i built on H12SSL-C with Epyc 7282 recently and it works very well. BUT, no SFP+ built-in, you can add add-in card for it(i'm did that for my system). BUT you get 128 PCIe gen 4 lanes with 7...
