    Samsung PM1723a aka MZWLL3T8HMJP-000G7

    While actively searching for a larger amount of SSDs larger or equal to 4TB, I received an offer from a Chinese contact for Samsung 1723a or MZWLL3T8HMJP-000G7.

    ASrock Rack ROMED8-2T - Correct PCIE2 Selection Jumper settings and/or what cables to use OCU1 & OCU2 w/ U.2 Drives

    I must be doing this wrong because no matter how I set the PCIE2 Selection Jumpers for my ROMED8-2T board, I cannot see the two Micron 9300 Pro U.2 drives connected to the two OCU1 & OCU2 connectors on the board using two of these cables: PCIe Gen 4 16 GT/s OCulink (SFF-8611) to U.2 (SFF-8639)...

    What Oculink PCIe Gen4 cables to use for ASRock Rack ROMED8-2T & U.2 PCIe Gen4 x4 drives?

Does anyone have a recommendation for a specific cable to use...
