    Intel Skylake Core i7-6700K IPC & Overclocking Review @ [H]

    Anybody want to take a guess at how well a 6700K/Z170 would stack up to an old X5680/X58 combo?

    No point, they're in there temporarily for pre-configuration and a POC--all the ears were left in the boxes.

    To be honest, it's not even set up yet. This is an eval system (one X-Brick) that we've got to kick around for a while. We're going to move some high IOPS workloads over to it from a VNX 5400 and see if it makes a measurable improvement. This isn't the first one we've set up though, they...

    And some cabling pr0n: This is a rack from a previous employer, mostly user ports and patch panels to other racks on the row. Time, neglect and sloppiness are how it arrived at this state. I gutted the entire rack, replaced some switches and installed shorter cables (2ft vs 7-10ft) and some...

    It's been a while since I've posted in here, but I thought I'd share a few pics of my "permanent" lab rack at work. I rotate other gear in and out as needed, but this stuff stays put: Top to bottom: Aruba S3500-24P PoE Switch Cisco 2950-24 Switch (Management Net) Aruba 3200 Controller Aruba...
