No, bought it barebones from CWWK on Amazon. I put these two in it:

WD_BLACK 1TB SN850X NVMe Internal Gaming SSD Solid State Drive - Gen4 PCIe, M.2 2280, Up to 7,300 MB/s - WDS100T2X0E

G.Skill RipJaws DDR4 SO-DIMM Series 64GB (2 x 32GB) 260-Pin SO-DIMM DDR4 3200 CL22-22-22-52 1.20V Dual Channel Memory F4-3200C22D-64GRS (these memory modules are dual-rank, so very fast)

BTW, mine came with the fan mounted in the lower compartment....it is silent.
how come got come with FAN ? can share us some picture

for SSD & RAM I ask CWWK compatible which brand and model before they say it better to get Samsung model

Mine finally cleared the Dutch customs and arrived yesterday; neatly packaged:
cwwk-001.jpgcwwk-002.jpgcwwk-003.jpgcwwk-004.jpg

And then a pleasant surprise followed; I ordered it with an extra sata cable, because the order page mentioned only 1 being included, but I've gotten 3 sata cables per node, but also a fan, a tool and the most welcome addition of a key-a+e to key-m m2 convertor adapter!:

One unit loaded with 1TB and 2TB Samsung 980 pro SSD's and a Kingston Fury kit (KF432S20IBK2/64), all confirmed working in bios. The fan will not fit with the ssd heatsinks though:

Looking forward to run PVE full mesh cluster on these...

Edit: Forgot to note the bios version, but it was from somewhere March 2023...

interesting. i overlooked that part.
i think fta's bios supports both nvio (ax201/211) as well as pcie (ax200/210) (at least there are options related to both in the bios).
what i personally would be interested in is if the ax411 is working.
it also uses nvio , but only works with 12th/13th gen cpus due to it using a newer nvio version which is only supported by those.

As for AP-Mode, no idea, im not so deep into that topic so i cannot give a good opinion here.
You must use a ax211 or ax411 (any card part number with a "1" in the end as these are CNVio2 cards). This is an Intel platform and only supports this proprietary PCIe backend connection type known as CNVio2.

Yep. Exactly the same as mine from Amazon (and can be had for the same price there as AliExpress). It is direct from CWWK.

that would mean ax200/ax210 would only work on amd platforms which of course is not true. you can run those two on anything with a pcie x1 slot (or mini-pcie or a fitting adapter). i have personally run ax210 on 4th gen intels and also amd ryzen systems (using pcie adapters).

it is true though that the ax201/211/411 will not work on amd platforms and the ax211/411 wont work on intel platforms before 12th gen because of the proprietary cnvio2-protocol that is exclusive to intel 12th/13th gen ( see Intel ax211 compatibility with CNVIO2 sockets ).

Are you sure vat is included, because mine included vat during the ordering process, but then it got dropped (from 1650-ish to 1330-ish) just before you finalise the order and start the actual payment via psp. This is the message that is shown if you click the info icon where the price change is listed:
Price Adjustment
Orders shipped from outside of EU with a goods value above EUR150 will be subject to VAT upon importation into the EU. The price of your order has been adjusted to reflect a later collection of VAT at the customs. You are encouraged to confirm the logistics and tax payment arrangement (for VAT, duties, agent fees, etc.) with the seller.
I'd rather had payed the vat via Aliexpress, because now post.nl handled the customs clearing and they took their time in doing so (23 days)....

I am pritty sure. I guess we will find out soon enough. But they do mention that tax exempt, so tbh there should be nothing extra on here and nothing said excl.

I am not sure, was just going by what I was reading in this thread and on the video. If anyone knows either way, feel free to chime in, thanks.

No it is not resolved in 7.4-1 and via usb-c you do indeed get more info and it seems the unit goes into a boot loop of some kind....

So this (+this) still applies using this...

Thanks for confirming. I have the ISO here ready and on my iODD, so hopefully can just plug and play so to speak.

I am still trying to source a good PSU in the UK as the one the OP suggested on first page, I cant seem to find anywhere in the UK which sells them or has them in stock. Know of anywhere?

Thats UEFI and is normal with UEFI enabled in BIOS and not legacy boot if you have no OS installed. I believe you havent seen the key combo which would usually happen during POST unless its hidden. Probbaly display didnt show it in time which can happen. I am not sure on the combo as mine wont be here for a week or two but BIOS combos are "F1", "F2" or "DELETE" usually. You could COLD BOOT it and wack those combos and you should enter.

thanks. pressing "DEL" button did the trick. i was worried its a faulty set. i never know without a OS install, I wont see anything.
i managed to use sergei win PE boot disk and use the tools inside and found all components are detected.
