    Supermicro X11SCA-F fans with ESXi

    Please help... I have a Supermicro X11SCA-F running ESXi 6.7 update 3. The BMC is set for fan mode "full" (which was then followed by a cold start of the BMC).

    1U Server w/Supermicro X9 Board & Fans Switch

    Hi, I just grabbed a cool server for pfSense with a X9SCI-LN4F Supermicro board and a E3-1230 v2. Everything seems to be fine except for the fans. They sound all like rubbing sandpaper and they are almost EOL and have their dead-end very close. The fans currently installed are SUNON...

    LSI 9207-8i, Expander and 24 SSDs (Beginner Confusion)

    I have an LSI 9207-8i card (2 ports) connected to an expander (Supermicro SAS-216EL, 3 ports) via a single mini-SAS cable, which is connected to a 24-drive backplane (Supermicro BPN-SAS-216EB, able to hold a 2nd expander). There should eventually be 24 SATA3 SSDs connected to this backplane...

    Supermicro X9DRH-7TF and Fusion-IO SX300-6400

    I recently picked up a 6.4TB ioMemory SX300 from one of the deals threads and have it working as a datastore for ESXi 6.7u2. The question is, right now write performance is hindered by it only drawing 25w from the PCIe x8 slot, so how do I safely get 75w to this card? I'm running a GPU in the...

    Supermicro X11spa (some general questions)

    Hi. As narrated in other threads, I'm having a bad experience with the Epyc Rome platform. Most likely it is because I got a faulty motherboard, but since I have the chance of returning my Epyc Rome, to avoid further hassle I'm considering to switch to a Xeon scalable platform, since I found a...

    Can only PWM 2 Noctua fans at a time on a SM X9DRi-LN4F+ (but they run fine at full speed)

    TLDR: If I plug in 3 Noctua industrial fans for PWM, none will spin up. If I plug in any two of them (or 2 + a rando fan), all will will work fine. I recently got a (new to me) X9DRi-LN4F+ SuperMicro motherboard inside SC846E16 4U chassis. After researching the best way to quiet it, I...
