    Cooling the CPU, X11SDV-4C-TLN2F

    Hey good folks of STH, I recently purchased an X11SDV-4C-TLN2F, the one with a FCBGA2518 socket and a Xeon D-2123IT. Now the chassis I've chosen apparently has insufficient airflow to adequately cool the heat sink, so I'm looking for solutions. Either a way to actively cool the existing heat...

    Supermicro SC846 power for internal SSD

    Hi Guys, I have 2x SC836TQs that I'm using and want to add an SC846 to the mix. On the 836 backplanes there are 4 pin power connectors to use for CD/2.5" drive power and I have the appropriate little adapters to make this work. The 846 that I have has the 846A backplane and the PDU doesn't have...

    New 1U pfSense build - Can't decide on hardware

    I'm working on a new pfSense build to replace a SuperMicro 1U D525 build (which of course, doesn't have AES-NI support and will therefore be incompatible with future pfSense releases). I've decided on the SuperMicro SC505-203B as the case because of the front facing I/O. Comes with a PSU...

    10gbit interface compatibility (Intel X553 <-> Mellanox ConnectX-2)

    I've been working on a Supermicro SYS-E300-9A (Intel Atom C3858,) putting together a fully virtualized router + whatever, and I'm getting around to being complete. The last step for me is routing my existing 10gbit setup through it, but I've hit a snag. My NAS has a Mellanox ConnectX-2 card...

In order to provider neater organization and to allow for drive expansion (even with my 4-in-3 Icy Docks, I'm limited to ~ 12 drives in my tower chassis), I'd like to move this into a proper chassis.

    Selecting Dual EPYC motherboard... Is there any other option except Supermicro?

    Googled, but no luck... Seems like Supermicro H11DSi-series is the only motherboard for Dual EPYC configuration... The other choice is Gigabyte MZ31-AR0 or Tyan Tomcat SX S8026, but it has only a single EPYC socket... I like my Supermicro H11DSi-NT, but it has no Hard Disk Drive activity LED...

    [solved] Supermicro X9SRi-F does not boot, but has IPMI

    Hi, I just got a Supermicro X9SRi-F, and am using a Xeon E5-2670 with it. My problem is that when I turn it on, the fans spin, and I can access IPMI, but there is no VGA output and as far as I can tell it doesn't boot (IPMI can't read temp or other stats). No beep codes happen. Any ideas?

    Create Custom Fan Speed Maps for SuperMicro X10 Servers via IPMI

    I got tired of the noise with my SuperMicro X10 Server (4027GR-TRT), but didn't want to get into involved hardware fan swaps which still may produce unsatisfactory results. For reference, the "Optimal" fan setting decided to run half of the fans at 8000RPM at idle, and the other half at 5000RPM...
