    Here is a new 2020 thread since the last one we had was in 2017 (that lived on for years.)
    Here is a link to the Hardware Failures in 2017 thread.

    Still do not have a picture yet, but one of the Intel 480GB SSDs that is mirroring the rpool on a STH hosting server is not doing well at all!

    Had a 10GbE NIC died on a sys-e300-9d-4cn8tp last week. First time I've ever actually seen a NIC (without human assistance) I think....

    I think these were S3500 or S3600's.

    I had a similar failure a month or so back. My home server has a mirrored rpool and one of the Intel drives went out. Though mine are ancient 40gb Intel 320's :p Fortunately I had a spare.

    Had a Gigabyte GA-7PESH2 motherboard die on me a month or two ago. Just woke up one morning and it wouldn't power on. It was my whitebox Proxmox server. I found a Dell 720 on Craigslist locally and picked that up to replace it - it came with more RAM with lesser CPU cores, so I moved my CPUs over and sold off my old RAM and a few other misc parts.

    We've had 3 of these Supermicro X11DPi-NT fail now, all seem to have issues in the vrm area.
    Seems to be tied to hw version 1.21, replacement boards had version 2.0.

    I still have a bunch of these with hw version 1.21 in production.
    Let's hope they last longer than these ones did. IMG-20191212-WA0007.jpeg

    @mbosma - I love supermicro chassis's, was never a fan of their boards though, do you know what their sas3 backplanes are like reliability wise?

    So far the failures with supermicro have been pretty limited, no excessive amounts of failures apart from these cases.
    Never had motherboards just die like this except for this specific type of motherboard.
    I've deployed loads of supermicro servers and never had any issues with backplanes.
