    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...
