    Dell 43 Ultra HD 4K Multi Client Monitor – P4317Q

    Is this still the best +40" display that there is ? Is Philips Momentum 436M6VBPAB, 43" (436M6VBPAB/00) better since it's newer and has higher contrast ?? Anything else to consider ?

    HP SAS Expander Owner's Thread

    I found this procedure very valuable, following the same steps (just have to download new linux firmware for my newer expander) I was able to flash most recent HP 12GB/s expander very easily and all worked like charm. Whoever wrote that article knew what he was doing.

    Fans for IBM M1015 and HP SAS Expander

    1) I have put 3 IBM HBAs at the bottom of the mobo; I was lucky that my case has 3 grids on side panel; two above PCIe cards can have fans, while big grid over 6 HDs has 2 fans on opposite side panel - anyhow - I managed to create some air stream to cool all a bit.... not perfect though.... 2)...

    HP SAS Expander Owner's Thread

    I did it very very carefully - push them in the opposite direction first so you don't damage board while you squeeze them a bit (not too much so you can expand them later). Use tiny forge or mobile phone repair tools .... why do you want to remove sink; original paste is very good. Btw, I...

    HP SAS Expander Owner's Thread

    I bought new HP 12GB expander. It was impossible to find out which chipset was inside, so once I got it I opened it and realized it's same manufacturer as on the older expander, just newer chipset from MicroSemi PM8044.

    LSI 9240 vs Highpoing 2720 vs LSI 9260

    Sorry for answering on the old thread - for the sake of sharing and those who google, and since both controllers are still on the market; here is my experience with both 9240 and 9260. - I would go with any LSI based controller due to support, firmware updates, simple cross flashing from/to...
