The lab is mostly running idle, but i sometimes have to spawn several big K8S clusters, with virtually redundant SQL clusters for testing = 100GB ram consumed. So im planning on buying this: 1 x AMD Ryzen 7800X3D (In...

    My HDDs get too hot. What type of fans do I need?

    Hi everyone, I have 2 unraid servers that get too hot when parity syncing, especially in the summer, so it is time to change the fans (original fans that came with the case).

    Mod of Supermicro SuperChassis 933T

    Does somebody know if I can mod a Supermicro 933T and exchange the triple-redundant (Sp382-ts 380W) for a p920-SQ and exchanging the powerboard. Is there a lot of modification needed? If not, somebody knows if the fans of Sp382-ts 380W are very noisy?

    Hi, I have a supermicro 2U case which I love, but it's in my office and it's a little loud for office work (can even be heard over my switch, which is also loud). My girlfriend has also been complaining about it recently. I replaced (most) the fans in the switch with noctunas, which I had to...

    Cutting apart a Supermicro case ... experiences?

    Hi, so I have this strange layout Supermicro motherboard that I got cheap on eBay. Thought it was worth it at $35 for an E3 board, but it's turning out to be more work than it's worth. I have it in a standard ATX case but I can't use any of the expansion slots because it requires a riser...
