    What are we using for NVMe cache devices these days?

    I disagree with this: I think there are enough alternatives (nvram based nvme ssds, nvdimms like optane or dram + flash) that are nowadays affordable by "normal" enterprises which made slc based ssds obsolete. I'm somehow concerned that you list a bunch of consumer ssds and not enterprise ssds...

    Tyan Backplane

    Find out if there is a nvme or sas3 backplane, contact their support/sales or look up manuals/specifications on their website. See if there is a part number. Google that part number, sometimes weird shops or ebay links pop up. Contact the shop/seller and confirm it's the part your looking for...

    Recommend a vSAN all flash cache drive?

    I didn't try them with vsan.They are "vanilla" nvme devices though and should work without problems in esxi/vsan.

    Cheapest, quietest, lowest power 40Gbe switch? (and preferably less than 55cm deep)

    For 1-4 40GBE I would look at the icx switches in the megethread, for 8+ 40GBE ports I would look at arista switches. The os of arista switches has a build in command to set the fans to 30% speed which makes them quieter than supermicro 3/4u servers. That's an unmanaged infinband switch, it...

    Why is my E5-2690v4 running below base frequency in Windows

    You have to disable all powersaving features (it's not the default bios/uefi setting!) if you don't want the system to try saving power and "underclocking" the cpu. But your screenshot suggests that the system runs at <10%, I wouldn't change these settings...

    Will CPUs ever come to parity with GPUs for ML/AI/compute?

    Cpus are for general use, other "processors" or accelerators are for special purposes. They always existed besides cpus and "outperformed" them.
