    I have the case with just the passive for HD and fan at the back. HD is 36-40C, SSD is 27C.

    Maybe I should add a front intake? This still wouldn't cool the HDs. System temp is 43c, CPU is around 51.

    Sounds like the right choice. They were really scarce last Summer and I was happy to get a passive board.

    For anyone dealing with a similar situation... I added a drop of high temp epoxy between each heatsink screw head (which are rimmed and have a shallow cup shape) and the anti vibration pads on a 60mm Noctua. Easy jury rigging and it works great even with the board's vertical mounting.

    @Patrick, Can you explain the correlation of the last digit again within the Xeon D-1500 series? 8 = networking optimized. 0 = first batch? 1 = second batch? What is 7 then? The charts rules out higher TDP chip.

    More to the point is do the actual chips (storage,network,regular?) have any actual differences in features or is it all marketing ?

    Sort of interested to see the fiber 10g phy boards power consumption.

    Mostly marketing/ market segmentation.

    I gave the feedback to the Intel marketing team that it is very confusing.

    @Remko, this could be very interesting. I do think you need to fill in some more details before you could get a reasonable critique of what you are building. What OpenStack roles do you see on each "controller". Why are all of the controllers exposed to the public network (which you can't answer until you fill in the first part). Why the use of bonds (are your network 10Gbe?). What storage technology are you using on the storage nodes? If Ceph (which most OpenStack users are coalescing on these days) then do you plan a separate storage network for clustering? Etc.

    Frankly, this is not a D-series discussion. It probably should get its own thread rather than hijacking this one.

    @Remko I agree with @PigLover - this should be its own thread not buried 53 pages deep. If you want me to move I am happy to.

    I am sort of surprised that I can find no one else asking (or just terrible at finding stuff) but is there any releasedates for these? I so want to throw out all old servers at main office and replace with a few of these at 128GB Ram. Probably going for 1567.

    These should be hitting much wider availability over the next few weeks.

    I still think that other thread you posted was really interesting! You should re-post it: DIY Server and Workstation Builds

    I have been working on something similar so happy to contribute thoughts. I can get the old post back if you need.

    Patrick, is there a store/vendor list of where to actually get one?

    Where would you normally get one of the upper tier ones? (1567/1587)

    All I sadly see over here in EU are 1540s if that, on SoC boards. No vendors or even B2B seems to carry them openly (like if I wanted a microblade). I found a single vendor that sold blades rather than just a HW shop that sold the boards on orders (ie no stock but they'd take it home on an order).

    I realize these boards are brand new and that FB etc will take 10k+ of them right off the bat, but if I wanted a legit chance of getting a D-1567 before July, where should I look? (I almost don't care about the shipping costs :) )

    Want to shoot me a PM with your e-mail? I can see what I can do.

    Have a 1541 on hand now. The passmark numbers are good. Around 1565 single thread and almost 12k overall. The 1567 likely kicks ass. These are serious chips.

    I was put into these guys by a fellow member.
    They probably should have the new boards if there is any chance.

    Search

    Wired zone .com (if the search link does not work)

    Question for those who may know. What kind of performance hit if you don't occupy each channel with a DIMM? E.g. 3 DIMMS instead of 4.
