    FS: AMD Threadripper Combo: 3970X, Noctua CPU Cooler and ASRock Rack MoBo

    I too have a 5900x that is probably more than I'd ever need for a desktop. The TR / Asrock Rack makes for a solid workstation. I ran it headless. My first Asrock Rack mobo. Really impressed with their IPMI interface. Bit more polished than Supermicro's which I commonly use.

    Enterprise HDDs and compatibility question

    I'd like to get a couple SAS HDDs for my unRAID server. I've been shopping around for a couple 1 to 4 TB drives for testing but can't get a handle on what drives will work "out of the box" with a LSI SAS controller in IT mode. I read that many of the enterprise SAS HDDs are locked to a...

    W-1270 compatible consumer grade mobo?

    My brother bought a refurb dell workstation with a W-1270 and a Radeon Pro W5700. The CPU has been hovering around 90 to 100c when he's in game. He's using it for some business photoshop stuff and light gaming. I'm thinking he may want to move it to another case and mobo so he can fit a larger...

    Best quiet NAS drive for quiet NAS operation in the living room

    This setup sits close to the TV / sofa in a small-ish apartment and is pretty much inaudible. It's now 31TB and growing. @ullbeking it's definitely possible to make it quiet. This was my goal when selecting hardware. The loudest part are the Noctua fans :)

    Best quiet NAS drive for quiet NAS operation in the living room

    I keep a tiny server in my living room. Recently added a few WD white drives with a custom, 3D printed rack. The thumping noise was driving me crazy. One drive would make this very consistent, every 5 seconds "thump" noise. So I remembered those rubber bumpers that come in the Easystore...

    How can I check SSD's TBW in ESXi?

    I have an SSD mounted in an Dell Optiplex Micro running ESXi 6.7.0 with an Ubuntu VM. I just use a single SSD. I'd like to check the TBW of this SSD but the last mention I can find to do this in ESXi was in 2016. A tool on Virten.net that is no longer supported. I can't check SMART from Ubuntu...

    Help with adding storage to R720

    Hi, I'd like to add some additional storage to an R720 LFF (8 bay). What is the most economical way to add additional storage. I understand the easiest way is to add a Dell PowerVault but I'd like to try to just add an LSI HBA to the R720 and expand off that's to a JBOD or DAS. I have some...

    32GB DDR4-2666 RDIMMs $85 ea

    Thanks, good to know. $75 for 32GB seems like a good deal. Do you know what they mean by "It is a TSV RDIMM memory. It cannot be mixed with regular RDIMMs!" I'll be replacing four 8GB sticks and not mixing this with anything but could this memory be an issue when adding more later on due to...
