I picked up a 3106 for $75 and need another one. Considering the Gold 6136F 12 core is $150, I can't see paying $130-$140 for another 3106.
But then again, two 6136F would set me back $300 and I'll have a left over cheap part no one wants.
If anyone has an 3106, or a pair of inexpensive...
These STH reviews of Tiny PCs hasn't coaxed me to go mini. Nope, uh uh. Not until I go off the grid or something, at which keeping 240 TB online would be a bit difficult. Even still, I never liked Embedded CPUs ...
However, Windell just posted a review of this thing - right when I was...
There seems to be a awful lot of Failed and Bad / For Parts / As-Is eBay sales of these CPUs.
Seeing a failed Intel CPU has been rare in my 24 years on eBay. However, searching for anything "Intel Xeon Silver" or gold or alike brings back a bunch of bad CPUs.
Why is this? Is the IPC weak or...
Intel has refused to release the Available Turbo Bins for Intel V4 processors. Any Intel forum discussions around E5 V4 turbo bins turns into a PM and NDA signing in order for someone to get the bins. Intel did originally release a few screenshots of turbo bins during the launch; however...
Edit: All done. Thank you!
Trying to find a good deal to increase the ram on my flashship box.
Ideally looking for 4x 32GB sticks. Really want to push the ThreadRipper to 3200, but would consider 2933 as well.
I could also go for 6x and even 8x sticks if cheap enough (to not break the bank).
I see the E5-2687W V4 has sold in May several times around $160-$180.
$150 + shipping?
I could buy 1, 2, or 3 or more.
The E5-2697A V4 is a cheaper alternative if someone has them in bulk? Though, I really prefer the 2687W (higher base clocks, and all turbo).
Until then, I'll most likely...
I have an onboard 8-Port HBA SAS3 controller that I'd like to snake into a 1U chassis that holds 12x LFF (the infamous NR12000).
Problem statement: so how would one connect 14x SAS drives (2x SLOG) to an 8-port controller?
Usual answer: Backplanes baby!
However, there is no backplane here...
I may be a victim of a locked Epyc 7551 and need to verify.
Could I pay someone a few bucks to borrow their 7001/7002 CPU for a few days to test of things boot? Like, as soon as it can boot, it gets shutdown and removed.
I just need to verify if it's a locked CPU or not...
So, Total uncorrected errors = 0. Meaning, it was able to correct all errors?
Smartctl long test resulted the same READ error, twice, which halted the tests:

Title says it all! I'm typically 5-10 years behind in my Homelab (as that's all we can afford, right?) and I now have an Epyc board with two OCU Links.
Very first thought that went through my head, "You know, @Patrick has some great videos about a new technology or part or slot or protocol...
I can't afford new. :) So, looking to scoop up a few M.2 enterprise drives from eBay for my servers and laptop.
I have a collection of Samsung EVOs and Pros I bought well before I learned about the super capacitors in enterprise variants.
$300 shipping though (freight)... Thought about contacting them to see if they would use my UPS account number. Yikes.
$300 is for standard Freight. However, they can ship 1 unit via normal fedex/ups if you contact them direct.
@Patrick have you seen such a system before? This looks like...
Does STH have some form of special recognition or award for excellent posts? I ask because this one deserves an award:
EVGA Forums has had a long-running recognition system with Ribbons...
Edit:. See the thread replies below. There are many deals for this server.
I think this is a decent deal for someone looking for 10x 2.5" SAS1 chassis, dual E5 V1/V2 CPUs, dual PSUs, and lots of ram, especially when compared to the Hyve servers.
I cannot vouch for the server itself. Maybe...
Saw these drop on NewEgg down to $209, then NewEgg doing it's Newegg crap, jacked it back up. Then saw they dropped on WD's own website.
These are also CMR, not SMR. :)
(pick the 10TB variant)
No, not that Hyve Zeus... This is a different 1U. :)
Hyve HYV-S-SLF-SSKUD-2, aka "Hyve S-SKUD 2"
The size looks identical to the looong Chenbro 12x 3.5 chassis models. However, the Chenbro has a standard ATX-sized mobo and fans butted right up against the mobo in order to fit 12x LFF 3.5"...
I've seen the Supermicro H11SSL-i go for about $275-$300 on eBay and other forums. So that's about the ballpark I'm looking at.
Prefer the Asrock Rack version if possible, EPYCD8 or EPYCD8-2T. Supermicro works as well.
I have a 7001 series CPU to put in it (hence the non-Rome ask). However...
So, Craft Computing put in E5-46xx CPUs in his LGA2011 V1/V2 system and it booted and ran fine.
Does anyone know if this works with V3/V4 versions of the Supermicro motherboards?
Turns out my old engineer samples of E5-2650L V4 CPUs, and one gives an error and won't work in this...
All done, thanks for looking!
I am volunteering at a local elementary school this year to offer some electronic classes, 3D printing, model rockets, etc.
I have two RPi 3Bs; but, think I need a couple more for the groups. However, I am unable to find any RPi 3B on eBay for anywhere near...
Seen a few of these floating around the forums. Figured someone might have a pair (2) of them for sale. :)
Might be interested in the Active versions... Though, don't care for the noise and would need to be cheap to offset that noise.
Turns out I bought the wrong "narrow" versions a while...
