    ConnectX-3 upgrades

    I have some ConnectX-3 cards, I was curious to upgrade the firmware to the latest, probably unwise but it was an interesting prospect, so I wanted to try. My card is MCX341A-XCEN which is PSID MT_1270112023, but that one was only listed as having version 2.31.1598 of the firmware and mine was...

    Updating SuperMicro BIOS using SUM causes reboot

    I have an X11SCL-F and I am trying to use SUM to update the BIOS as I am on v1.1 But SUM does "Reading BIOS" and when it gets to 100% the system reboots without doing the update. It feels like it's crashing? Is there some kind of lock or watchdog that I am triggering? Anyone have any ideas?

    EU FS: OCP to PCIe adapters

    Hi all, I have one of the exotic motherboards that has no PCIe sockets but has two OCP sockets. As my board also has 2x10GbE the OCPs are rather unused. From another thread on here I found a Chinese vendor who was selling OCP to PCI-E adapters but only to China. I have managed to import four...

    OCP Mezzanine Riser/extender

    I have one of the Ak-D1541 boards which is EATX but it has one of the OCP Mezzanine connectors uncomfortably close to the edge of the board and so a normal Mezzanine NIC won't fit. Has anyone even seen an OCP 120pin riser or extension cable? I can't find one and even looking at Amphenol I see...

I am not buying, I don't need...

    EU Telestream Lightspeed G6 server (UK) - Gone

    Up for auction in the UK, these are professional GPU based video processing servers. I was tempted to buy them to sell the parts on ebay, but I shouldn't be spending that kind of money even if the profit could be excellent. Thus, I humbly offer them to the STH community to make bids, auction...

    Blade chassis with blades for Intel C246 chipset

    Has anyone seen a blade system which has a blade with the new Intel C246 chipset yet? I am keen on using the new Xeon E 2186G CPUs in a blade configuration because of their ability to do video transcoding with the Intel HD Pro 620 GPU on board but I can only find Mini-ITX boards at the moment.
