    I can sleep again ... Noctua NH-L9x65 in Supermicro SC216

    Thanks to @Rand__ for his help purchasing a solid Supermicro SC216 (2U) with a super quiet PWS-920P-SQ. I didn't have so much space for another 3U or 4U case in my IKEA home rack.

    Noctua case fans on Xeon-SP Tower Server

    Hello all! I know this has been talked a number of times but I'd like a concise answer if at all possible. I'm building a Supermicro-based Xeon Scalable home server and need PWM case fans (not in a Supermicro chassis). A build-log with pictures will be posted later. I'd prefer not to have to...
