Very nice, how much did that cost?
As frogtech said, it's $639 with free shipping.Very nice, how much did that cost?

Boy, so would I. I can only imagine what I'd do with four more of these. One is about all I can afford. I'll be working in the data center tomorrow and won't be able to sneak this baby in to do testing with our Brocade switch much as I'm tempted. Sadly, my home network doesn't have even a netgear XS708T as much as I'd like one. Soon, I promise myself, soon.
The eventual plan is to put either ESXi or HyperVisor 2012R2 on it and run pfSense, several ubuntu servers providing mail, DNS, etc. Some day, I'll post pictures of the 2U box I affectionately refer to as "The Beast" but it's still in pieces.I would love a credit card where I can afford to buy all the cool stuff we see on STH without worrying about mounds of debt. Definitely like the appeal of these XeonD small boxes which can fit a very wide range of use cases. Pretty pictures tenet. =) Look forward to your insight once you use it. =) It's like window shopping now. Boy that looks nice but how can I justify it.
God, that is a great idea! Too bad I can't even convince my boss to give me an old server for testing, let alone one of these. My test box is a shuttle xpc with a celeron running Windows 10 Pro and hyper-V.
If you see the picture here: Supermicro X10SDV-7TP8F - High-end Xeon D platform that is the mSATA boot drive Supermicro equips their server with. It is a smaller mSATA boot drive. My guess is that they expect the servers to be ordered with their recommended mSATA drive and set the default peg position accordingly.I received the new msata drive today. I saw that the msata mounting screw was mounted for a half board, the drive I received is a full sized board. When I tried to remove the screw, I discovered that the mounting spacer is secured from the underside of the board, meaning the entire board needs to come out.
That is an awesome idea. Since I don't have a riser card, those PCI-e slots are going unused anyway. I need to find a sata power splitter ASAP!
@Patrick: Offer accepted. Please post a video of you doing that entire swap (plus re-installation) in 90 seconds.I probably have a different view on these motherboards/ building systems but removing the board in most systems and swapping the spacer takes me about 90 seconds when I use larger mSATA SSDs in those slots.
