    dual opteron 6 core 24 bay supermicro server won't post after power down to install 14 tb drives

    Thank you. Still running the evga sr2. I was looking at epyc or threadripper for something newer since newer versions of exsi are discontinuing support for xeon v2 since kinda old but I have ram and xeon v2s cpus from my old build so not sure where to go with the upgrade. server still runs so...

    Herman Miller Aeron - $669

    Is Madison seating reliable though? They don't rate very well on google or with BBB.

    /dev/null Thank you that maxes at 64 gb of ram so is a no go need 128gb preferable to expand to 256 or more. Likely will go with a xeon v2 board.

    Recommendations please on replacement esxi server.

    Thank you for the replies. cdabc123 Have a pair of 5650s in the EVGA SR-2 but only 48 gb of ram. Where you seeing Xeon v2 motherboards for $100-$150. Ebay seems want $400+ for a Supermicro dual xeon v2 motherboard which may be cheaper just to buy a used server and remove what a I need and...

    dual opteron 6 core 24 bay supermicro server won't post after power down to install 14 tb drives

    Well I went from 12 to 16 drives. actually 17 including the ssd for the virtual machines do spinners really take that much power? Its not like this has a beefy video card. System is old I bought it used in 2013. Guess it was time.

    Recommendations please on replacement esxi server.

    Looking to replace my old dual opteron 24 bay supermicro server I bought on a hot deal here awhile ago. It died when I shut down to install 14 tb drives and won't post. Managed to rig it up running with a evga sr-2 motherboard so not in a rush to buy. Old server hosted the following ESXi...

    dual opteron 6 core 24 bay supermicro server won't post after power down to install 14 tb drives

    Thank you for the replies. Don't think its the drives. System won't post. Seems like the power supply did take the motherboard with it since I tried another power supply from another system and it still wont post. I didn't remove any drives it has 24 bays. Just added 4 to set up another raid.

    dual opteron 6 core 24 bay supermicro server won't post after power down to install 14 tb drives

    Nope. Just shut down server, I slided out empty cadies put the 4 drives I shucked in. Server wouldn't post when powered up. The power supplies is bad according to the tester it probably took the motherboard with it not sure if this worth trying to salvage buying another board and power...

    MainGear Pre Config. Thoughts?

    I am not a fan of MSI are there other motherboard options? What is the brand and ram configuration how many sticks and speed of each? What is the brand and rating of the power supply? For $2700 they better be giving you an Corsair, Evga, Seasonic 80 Plus Gold or better unit.

    Star Wars: Squadrons

    VKB Gladiator NXT works pretty well. May need a separate throttle since using the one on the stick is a bit awkward and you don't quite have enough buttons for everything. I have not finished the campaign so not sure if you earn all the upgrades via campaign single player or you have to play...

    mvmiller12 Thank you. Maybe my Sidewinder broke? Windows 10 doesn't seem to see it. SOAREVERSOR I got used to playing with Joystick for Xwing, Tie Fighter and Xwing Alliance. The mouse just felt weird and you had to keep picking up the mouse with the old games which was odd. I bought...
