    Supermicro 4U CSE-417 72 Bay SFF Barebone Server 2x 1400W PWS Rails 599.00 + 70.00 s/h


    OBO of 465.00 + 70 s/h was accepted (Started at 425). I had the impression after they accepted my offer that the seller (The Server Store) might have accepted slightly less but YMMV.

    It was a reasonably good deal for me as I needed 48 or so 2.5" bays and qty 2xCSE-216 was going to cost 500 or so without rails and that makes either an extra system or 1-2 more P/S's I'd have to run.

    Do you think there would be any compatibility issues by swapping out those stock fans for Noctua fans for my homelab?

    Edit-updated with some relevant forum links to redirect.

    I don't have any first hand experience as I am about to make my first (and large at that) foray into the SM eco-system.

    perhaps someone else with more experience can speak up but this probably isn't the correct thread/forum.

    quick search of supermicro && noctua turned up a lot of useful threads:

    also the 8xx and 216 chassis threads are relevant too.

    You will definitely have issues if you try to put noctuas in a chassis such as this. Wrong tool for the job.

    If you have low power 2.5's (i.e., HGSTs ssd's) you can IPMI the fans down to super low levels using ipmitools. I run my Dells 630/730's at barely audible levels with V4 L procs and low wattage 2.5's to get away with it. Most L procs can sustain higher temperatures which helps with the lack of static pressure when running this low. Source your parts right if noise is a major concern and you'll be good. There are solid ways around the server "noise" problem- PM me if you need help.

    it depends on if the fans are connected to the mother board or the SAS board. if the SAS board the fans almost always run @100%
