Thank you all for your help.
If you zoom in really close on the schematic of the motherboard you can see the pins. See attached. These are 36-pin connectors - most likely mini-SAS - check out Wikipedia.
Could you please take a look at Supermicro X11DPG-QT motherboard. In the lower left corner it has 2 ports (gray/black color) where each provides 4 SATA connections. For higher resolution picture download the pdf manual (menu on the right).
I want to get the appropriate cables for this but...
Thank you for your contribution Zepher!
I searched through my power cables and found a 8pin to 4+4pin cable from a Seasonic power supply I have. The 8pin end matches the PSU sockets for PCIe:
The two flat 4-wire cables, that come...
On closer inspection, I don't think it can fit into the PCIe sockets of the power supplies I linked to.
If you zoom in you can see that the cable has two rows of pins with this configuration:
On the other hand if you zoom in at the...
I think I found the cable I am looking for:
Male on both ends.
But in the description it says:
"Corsair PSU Compatibility: RMi series, RMx series, SF Series, Corsair Type 4 PSU"
Shouldn't it be compatible with any and all modular...
Check out Supermicro X11DPG-QT. In addition to the standard 24pin power socket it has 8pin CPU + 8pin CPU + additional 4pin CPU. The manual says all of these have to be connected.
I see that some higher wattage power supplies, like Rosewill and EVGA, come with two 8pin CPU connectors and usually...
I am connecting a DSLR camera's HDMI output to a computer monitor. When I take a long exposure the camera cuts out the HDMI signal and the monitor goes to sleep. Once the picture is done I have to wait for the monitor to go through its wake up routine which takes a few seconds. This gets...
Thank you all for your advise.
Actually, for right now, I wanted something that will support the latest video standards - 4K 60Hz 4:4:4 color. I am sure there are cards (now) that will do this for $75-$125 but I didn't bother doing my homework. I also wanted something that will do decent 3D...
The max power draw from the PCIe happens only when under a heavy load, right?
I should not have power issues for just desktop (4K) use?
How about during boot?
(I know that CPUs can draw a lot of power when booting but that is not applicable to GPUs, right?)
Well, they say it is for thermal reasons - 2 cards 25W each + 4 cards 15W each = 110W ; electrically it might have a wider margin.
Keep in mind that the 4 processors have a theoretical max of 520W so it adds up. But the fans at MAX were so strong (before I removed them) that I would have guessed...
I have a PowerColor RX480 on order which I plan to put in a Dell R810 2U server. The power supplies in the server do not have spare power outputs so I am going to use an external PSU just for the video card.
With all the talk about the RX480 exceeding the power draw limit of the PCIe slots I...
I am adding a video card ( PowerColor RX 480 - 8GB) to a 2U server (don't ask : ) The server PSUs do not have any spare power outputs. They have a 12-wire connection to the motherboard and not the regular 24-wire one.
I plan to get SeaSonic SS-520FL2 520W fanless PSU and power it on with the...
I used one of those sandpaper holders that painters attach to extension poles, not realizing that the base of those is quite soft foamy rubber. Then I switched to a flat aluminum plate and it is all good now. I even found this 3M "No-Slip Grip" sandpaper that is tacky on the back...
I knew this is somewhat of a long-shot but for the price it was worth a try. I just hope I don't fry the system experimenting.
Yes, I am planning to connect 4 of these waterblocks in series driven by a Koolance PMP-450S pump @ 24V. I tried this setup and it gave me just about 1 Gallon per...
I lapped one of them - I bought a spare just in case. It took a long time with 150 grit sandpaper to remove all the anodized aluminum and the manufacturing scratches close to the corners. The scratches in the middle of the waterblock were tough to get to so I went down to 120 grit and it got the...
It's for this (and I have 2 of those):
Help with quiet air cooling 4 processors in 2U server?
... so 8 good quality wbs gets quite expensive. Plus these are LGA 1576 (Socket LS) which I assume do not have many wbs made for as well as retention brackets, if any.
Stock air cooling is scary laud.
Its for cooling a 8 core CPU.
Well, heat transfer is heat transfer. I will lap the base and the top of the plate that I am epoxying but wouldn't it help if I lap the waterblock too? I know it supposed to be better lapped, I just don't know how much better. Maybe it is not worth the effort. Maybe...
I bought these waterblocks:
For CPU GPU SR Water Cooling Heatsink Block Liquid Cooler Aluminium Waterblock
I know they are junk but I needed a lot of them and could not afford the good ones.
I am planning to use it to cool a load up to 130W.
It is too big for the application so I will...
Here is my attempt in QUIET cooling the four Xeon X7560 processors in a PowerEdge R810 server that I bought for a home lab.
Behind the heatsinks you can see the six San Ace 60 53CFM fans which at full blast sound like a jet-engine-powered vacuum cleaner cleaning a jet fighter flying at...
(sorry, not a computer question)
I am going to use a TEC to keep a container (an ice cooler) at approximately 5C on my terrace. This means that during the summer (30C to 35C) the TEC has to cool the container and during the winter (-5C to -15C) it has to warm it.
1. Could you recommend...
1. So when someone says that their license expired and most of the features got locked, do they mean that their support contract ended? If so, does unlocking back the features require that they buy only a new support contract?
2. If the answers to 1. are both Yes and Yes, then is my...
I am obviously very new to this.
On VMware's website I can see the prices per CPU of the different versions of vSphere and the support packages.
I also see some talk of license expiration.
Yet nowhere does it say how long it takes for a license to expire.
Does everyone know that it...
The RocketRaid 3530 says it has 64bit LBA support - drives larger than 2TB.
I want to know if that is all that is required to support 6TB, 8TB and larger drives or might there be something else limiting the largest drive to, say, 4TB. Even if the card supports drives of any size, is there a...
right now nothing but hopefully some daaay ......<drifts off into blissful dreamy state>
<comes back from a blissful dreamy state>..... considering that intel officially announced the errata and the "fix" around August 12, which means they must have known about it for some time and been...
Intel just released the v3 (Haswell based) of the Xeon E5 2600-series which was supposed to include the TSX (Transactional Synchronization Extensions) of the Haswell architecture but because there was a bug in the implementation of TSX, the feature will be disabled in the first stepping.
I think I fried the CPU fan header of my Inspiron 560. I have to press F1 each time I boot to bypass the CPU fan failure warning. This is annoying but the bigger problem is that I am running a service on the computer which I constantly need. Hence, the computer is running all the time. It...
Were are the settings to increase the timeout limit for IE8? I googled for 30 min but all I can find is info for IE7 or less. (Switching to another browser is not an option.)
I have a website that takes longer than 2 minutes to complete the request and 2 min appears to be the hardcoded...
Thanks! Let me verify:
The server we are using uses the full email address as the account name. Lets say my friends email address is firstname.lastname@example.org and he has 9 emails in his SERVER inbox:
1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9 - all emails are in the same folder (INBOX) there.
Also lets say that he has...
I connect to an email server that allows both pop3 and imap. I use IMAP. When I receive an email that is on a certain subject I put it in the apropriate subfolder under Inbox. As soon as I do that the email is automatically sorted on the server and from there on my cellphone. Read/Unread...
Actually my job is to learn to program but that is in general and this project cannot wait until then.
I found one thing - AutoIt - it allows me to build GUIs and interact with other programs. Someone even wrote functions to interact with MySQL.
What do you think?
(...talk about unclear title....)
I have a tough task given to me at work:
I have a database dump with over 100,000 records of client's contact information (email, name, company) and what services they subscribe to. Because each service has its own signup there are many duplicates in the data...
I am considering getting the Dell 3008wfp but seeing that it has been out for more than 2 years, I am wondering if there should be a newer model coming soon. How soon do you think until it is replaced?
What I do:
- I am NOT a gamer (anymore)
- some photoshop
- might one day use programs that need 3D acceleration but not for now, hence the cheap video card (below)
- just want the fastest I can get within my budget
What I already have:
I read somewhere that the ExpressCard slots of the laptops could be attached (internally) to either a USB header or directly to the PCIe bus.
I have an external hard drive that can be connected with either USB 2.0 or a eSATA II. The eSATA should be much faster but my laptop does not...
(Atom N270 1.6GHz) VS. (Via Eden 600MHz)
How would these two processors compare?
I guess it is not just a matter of MHz. Atom is a much newer design.
I am "upgrading" from a desktop with Via ME6000 motherboard with the Eden processor and am considering the Dell Mini 9 with the Atom processor...
Unfortunately after the steps I took the partition shows empty (when DIR no files come up) but when I run my backup program Accronis True Image - it shows virtually full.
I guess the partition table is messed up. We might need one of those services that search through the hard drive for files...
