The last time I removed the CPU from the supermicro intel motherboard and installed the original plastic cap, I damaged the pins. I wasn't sure whether the plastic cap is supposed to go on the detachable bracket or directly on the CPU.
Unfortunately, there are no videos on youtube on...
I moved the memory from A1/A2/B1/B2, D1/D2/E1/E2 to slots A1/B1/C1/D1/E1/F1/G1/H1. These are all the blue slots on the motherboard. The memory showed up as 2133MHz.
Is that the preferred way of setting up memory i.e. blue slots first followed by black slots?
Finally, the mystery is solved.
I had hd-idle running on the system. This program turns off the scsi disks, but never turn them on. This is a known issue. Once, i disabled hd-idle for the scsi disks, they work fine.
The memory speed in the BIOS is indeed set to auto. The CPU is E5-2650 v4 which does support 2133.
The manual has this documentation,
I have 16GBx8 sticks. Is there any order i should follow to get 2133MHz?
I have Micron 36ASF2G72PZ-2G1B1 ram sticks in X10DriT motherboard. It supports 2133MHz but it shows up as lower speed of 1866 MHz. Any idea what could be the issue?

I have a X10DriT motherboard with dual cpus (E5-2650V4) populated. I want to reduce the power consumption. One of the tricks i did was to reduce the core count from 12 to 6 and disable hyper-threading,
Also, set APM to 'Energy Efficient'.
The PSU is PWS-920P-SQ and the system has a...
I was testing in a Supermicro SC846 with a SAS2 backplane. I move these disks to a RSV-L4500 with RSV-SATA-Cage-34 SATA/SAS cages. The disk completed the SMART test. The used endurance is shown as 0%.

I bought couple of 200GB SAS drives from ebay last year and just putting them to use the first time. The drives shows up fine on bootup but they disappear after sometime. I have them plugged into Supermicro SC846 SAS2 backplane.
This is what SMART shows,

Few years ago I bought a fan wall to make the supermicro SC846 quiet. Unfortunately, i never put it to use. I am unable to locate the thread on the internet which spoke about this.
Does anybody know about this fan wall?
Are you not using the PCIE slots next to the heatsink? With the fan in place a card will not fit over the heatsink.
I have an SFP+ card sitting over the heatsink. Wonder what is the best way to get a fan close to the heat sink.
A picture of your fan+heatsink setup would be nice :)
This is what i found at the back of the rack today. Also, there were a bunch of ball bearings next to it. Guess, I need to get a new rail.
This video suggests, I should replace my existing blue label rail (MCP-290-00057-0N) with a yellow label rail (MCP-290-00053-0N).
The SC846 has only the front trays. Unfortunately, I have no experience of the HGST drives, are they the same size as a regular 3.5 inch hard disk?
Also, is it better to use HGST over the Intel DC S3700 drives?
This is for homelab so cheaper is better. The physical constraint i have is that it needs to go into Supermico SC846 drive bay. I have a 3.5 to 2.5 inch adapter which is holding the Crucial drives.
In my search I also came across HGST drives like this. It seems to be much thicker, i am not sure...
