    E5-2697v2 and SM X9DRi-LN4F+ -- no POST

    I've been using the system for a few years, I just needed more cores to avoid contention. I am using both the 1.20 version of the Supermicro board and an R620. Each host now has 2697v2 and 512GB of RAM. All good.

    Supermicro X9DRi BIOS password -- successfully bypassed

    Hey all - I recently wrote up a blog post after buying another Supermicro X9DRi-LN4F+ only to find out that the eBay seller had not checked for a BIOS password. After experimenting with all of the suggestions on STH and other blogs I was unable to get it to clear. I tried CMOS battery...

    E5-2697v2 and SM X9DRi-LN4F+ -- no POST

    All great info, however, when playing with Supermicro they have FAQs specifically around stepping and OEM CPUs. Specifically, they talk about the E5-2696 v2 which is not supported as it's not part of the retail stepping inventory. https://www.supermicro.com/support/faqs/faq.cfm?faq=24720

    E5-2697v2 and SM X9DRi-LN4F+ -- no POST

    FWIW - I decided to just bite the bullet and pick up a X9DRi-LN4F+ v.1.20 - thought about buying another R620 but by time I buy rails, ship, etc. with adequate PSUs it'd be a waste. I know E5-2697 v2's aren't really efficient or preferred these days but I am not ready to jump to DDR4 yet. I...

    E5-2697v2 and SM X9DRi-LN4F+ -- no POST

    Hey all, I picked up two pairs of E5-2697 v2 stepping SR19H. I put two in my R620 and it works perfectly. I went to put the other two into my SC846 with X9DRi-LN4F+ which has a single PWS-920P-SQ PSU and the system powers up but no POST. I'm running the latest IPMI/BMC firmware and BIOS, and...

    Supermicro motherboard standoffs (no, not the normal kind)

    Hey ya'll I bought an SC847 (?) 36 bay 3.5" that came with a 16-DIMM motherboard in what is essentially a 2U configuration. I have procured 24 x 16GB DIMMs (2Rx4) and want to expand the memory to 384GB, so I bought a X9DRI-LN4F+ board which will provide enough slots. I went to remove the X9...

    92mm fans for Noctua NH-U9DX i4 that aren't so slow?

    Thanks guys - here's what the fans are currently doing (this is "optimal mode" at the current time) Here are the temperatures in the system (not showing all, obviously) sorted from highest to lowest: The ESXi host has the current loads (kcloud1esx1 is the supermicro, the second is an R620)...

    Just flip the cage nuts over and although "funky" there's nothing really unsafe about it.

    92mm fans for Noctua NH-U9DX i4 that aren't so slow?

    Hey guys - I have a Supermicro SC846 chassis running dual E5-2670s, 256GB of RAM, 16 x 8TB disks, and 8 x Intel S3710 400GB SSDs. It's an ESXi box for my lab. I am using Noctua NH-U9DX i4 on each CPU. I was up around 75 - 80% RAM utilization and started getting a "high non-critical" (80C)...

    Anyone know if Supermicro SC846 chassis has cable management arm?

    SC846 is 4U, so your google search isn't very helpful ;)

    Anyone know if Supermicro SC846 chassis has cable management arm?

    So I did come across that PN#, but I read this: FAQ Entry | Online Support | Support - Super Micro Computer, Inc. "Q: What is the purpose of MCP-290-00073-0N (Supermicro Cable Management Arm for 2U, 3U and 4U chassis (Extendable Length: 70mm to 830mm)); and can it be installed on...

    Anyone know if Supermicro SC846 chassis has cable management arm?

    Hey all - have an SC846 on rails now, but would like to get a cable management arm if it's available so I can pull it out of the rack without worrying about yanking on cables. Is one available? Thanks!

    ZLOG Benchmark is coming

    I just built out two 400+TB boxes running ZoL (Ubuntu 16.04.2 LTS) with P3700's as SLOG, and while it's fast, and IOPs seem decent, I don't feel like it's performing as well as it should given the ratings on the NVMe devices used for SLOG. I wonder if it's related to this.

    Micron 5100 MAX - anyone using these in datacenter/enterprise?

    Hey all - I recently built two 400+TB ZFS builds and put the OS on mdadm mirrored Micron 5100 MAX. I used MAX because my VAR could get them during the SSD shortage whereas the PRO's were unavailable. So, I don't touch the DWPD or anything, but I have them. These boxes have NVMe (P3700) SLOG...
