    The quest for the HGST UltraStar SN260 firmware updates...

    This is turning into a sh**t show of how pathetic this industry is turning. Quick recap: Any iDRAC update after 5.00.yy.z bricks my Dell PowerEdge T640 if the two Dell-Banded HGST NVMe drives are present in the system. (yellow screen of death). - Case opened with Dell support. They tried to...

    HGST HUSMR7676BHP3Y1 firmware? (SN200 7.68Tb)

    Hi, I have a few of these (all on KNGND101) and I can see signs of more recent firmwares in a few places, e.g: https://www.vmware.com/resources/compatibility/detail.php?deviceCategory=io&productid=44411 (says KNGND110). I'm researching a failure to boot with iDRAC >= 5.00.yy.z if those drives...

    8 x SSD drives in a Dell PowerEdge T140 in place of 4 x 3.5 HDDs... Need Y PCIe 6pin adapter

    This is related to the Dell PoweEdge t140 If my Math is correct, 8 x consumer SSDs should pull less power than 4 x 3.5HDDs. With the current cabling in the T140, only one SFF port on my H730P is used. I was able to buy a 2nd SAS/SATA x 4 cable that I will connect to the 2nd port of my H730P...

    Better heatsink for the Dell PowerEdge T140?

    Hi all, I have a Dell T140 and this thing has been running like a champ with my 8C/16T E-2278G. The 95W heatsink for the T140 seems unobtainable outside of Asia.. does anyone know of a heatsink which would fit (and on which I could retrofit the current cpu fan)? The socket is 1151 but in typical...

    Rare: 2400W new HotSwap Dell PSU with two NEMA 5-15P to CPC19 cables. R940, R740, R640, T640

    I bought this 2400W PSU for my T630 think it would accept it even if I stayed low on the voltage. Result: It works in my T640 but not in my T630 (it doesn't even powerup). On 110V, the 2400W PSU is the only PSU which provides -more- wattage than the 1100W PSU...

    128Gb RAM in PowerEdge T140 possible?

    The Dell T140 takes 4 DIMMs (ECC UDIMMs or regular DIMMs). When the T140 was introduced, only 16G ECC UDIMM were available. I'm considering the purchase of a T140 to replace a same-gen Precision T3431 that's already maxed out at 64G, I'd like to confirm if the T140 could go to 128G RAM with...

    [FS] Samsung 970 Evo 2Tb (3 pieces), light use, perfect condition with EKWB heatsink

    Hi everyone, Due to some of my Towers (T430, T630) not having PCIe bifurcation, my plan to use dual M.2 PCIe cards went bust and I had to look for alternatives. I've now successfully converted over to HGST PCIe SSDs and I'm selling the original SSDs because I no longer need them. Here's what is...

    Intel Scalable and the cpu-heatsink processor clip. How critical is it to use them?

    I'm mostly familiar with E5-* Xeons and while trying to upgrade a Dell Tower T640 from 1cpu to 2cpus, I had the unpleasant surprise of discovering the existing of the processor clip for Xeon scalable. My problem lies with the fact that I only have one processor clip (the black clip surrounding...

    Flash Dell H730P to LSI firmware?

    I jut got a nice H730P (2gb ram) off e-bay. I got that card instead of a genuine LSI for the following reasons: - Comes with an integrated BBU (don't know what type, though). - Comes with a much better/badder/larger heatsink (temp averages 65C in my TE410 instead of 90C with the previous LSI). -...
