it is HPE proprietary.
afaik no one have this card working on a non HPE system.
I call this bullshit, it works on other my systems. last system i have tried is Asrock X99extreme 6. By the papers i have been trough it is using marvel chip which is pci compliant.

in the win10 system it shows as
SCSI\DISK&VEN_NVME&PROD_HPE_NS204I-P_GEN\5&2FE5908E&0&000000

SCSI\DiskNVMe_________HPE_NS204i-p_Gen10+_Boot_Controller10141063
NVMe____HPE_NS204i-p_Gen1

But havent found out the incompatibility reason with the smicro board. (have tried all slots, contacted support which told me that it just another incompatible card and they obey pci sig ... )

That was my intention, 2x4T for vm datastore, but could not get it work.

H12SSL-NT. Anyone measured if disabling the integrated BCM57416 (2x 10GBASE-T) in BIOS will have any effect on actual power usage? Having a bit tight temperature budget inside my case/rack and don't really need the copper ports.

not sure if it's entirely relevant, but my board has an Aqantia 10gig adapter, it draws over 10W idle.

Sadly the BCM NICs still consume significant power even when idle or off. This is a known problem with this motherboard. Disabling in BIOS has no effect

I can confirm that.

Adapter Power Consumption:
  • Power Reduction Disabled: 15,5 W - 16,0 W
  • Power Reduction Enabled: 12,9 W - 13,4 W
The onboard nic is comparable to the Broadcom NetXtreme E-Series P210TP 10G LAN-Adapter BCM957416A4160C
The datasheet offers you a better idea about the specs of the nic itself.

Thanks for the info. Saved some downtime. Too bad they paired 2x SlimSAS with 2x 10GBASE-T. Maybe this is a "good excuse" to start eyeballing H13 systems. :cool:

H11 series work great with Rome and have different feature options on the board if you’re going in that direction. I haven’t run into anything in real life that is bottlenecked by “only” pcie3 with the H11 series.

Running Rome 7443 atm. I'm always on the lookout for higher single thread performance and lower power usage. It seems Zen4+ does not bring anything new to table in this regard. And going to older gens not so much either.

Hello,

Can anyone confirm the correct slimline > NVME cable is part CBL-SAST-0953? Finally found it in stock somewhere and wanted to confirm before ordering since the only part listed on SM's site is the sata cable (CBL-SAST-0699) and it was mentioned you need the right cable. If another cable works or this is the incorrect part feel free to let me know.

Thanks.
