    Replacement for Shuttle XPC Cube with optical drive

    I'll sell the entire Shuttle enclosure when done. The SG11 could work.

    Replacement for Shuttle XPC Cube with optical drive

    Ok, great, I've seen the Ncase M1 in posts, never realized it has space for a slot loading drive, so it as option, but a bit of a rip off at $100+ for a UJ-265 drive. I would still like to explore cases that can take a full size optical drive. There are a limit number of drives that can...

    Replacement for Shuttle XPC Cube with optical drive

    Hi, I am looking for a replacement case for my Shuttle XPC Cube SZ170R6-V2. http://us.shuttle.com/products/sz170r6-v2/ I am tired of having to deal with USB3 dropout problems on the Z170 chipset and Win10. I would like to pick my own motherboard, while ideally re-using most of the components in...

    Just when I thought I was making progress with SM, I get this when I push them to give me an official release date:

    Supermicro X10SLM+-F and Adaptec 7805Q fail

    Good news, the test BIOS solved the problem for me. Per SM instructions I also tried SM certified Hynix memory, no difference, but the test BIOS, card initializes just fine. Thank you.

    Supermicro X10SLM+-F and Adaptec 7805Q fail

    Thanks, my contact is Milton Cai / miltonc, I'm going to ask him to talk to your guy, could you ask your guy to please talk to my guy, mine still insists it is because I am not using certified memory, which should be delivered on Friday.

    Supermicro X10SLM+-F and Adaptec 7805Q fail

    Was that an unofficial 2.00, or the official 2.00 dated 04/24/2014? Can you please share the BIOS with me? Or if not, can you share the email contact you are dealing with at SM, so I can tell my support contact about your support contact?

    Supermicro X10SLM+-F and Adaptec 7805Q fail

    Adaptec support had me update the firmware in a different system, same problem. Adaptec support said they tested firmware v1.1b in a X10 board, not 2.0, and they don't have a board to test with. Supermicro support said to try to force PCIe2, disable ASPM, disable PCI logging, enable PCI...

    Supermicro X10SLM+-F and Adaptec 7805Q fail

    Hi, I am having a problem with an Adaptec 7805Q SAS RAID controller in a Supermicro X10SLM+-F board. I tested the following combinations: Adaptec 7805Q + Supermicro X9SCM-F works fine. Adaptec 81605ZQ + Supermicro X10SCM+-F works fine. Adaptec 7805Q + Supermicro X10SCM+-F fail. The...

    How to update SuperMicro firmware to v2 without CPU?

    Hi, I ordered a few SuperMicro servers for use with Xeon E5-2600 and E3-1200 v2 CPU's. The mobo's need the v2 firmware in order to run the v2 E3 CPU's. I only have the new CPU's, I don't have any "spare" older generation CPU's. Is there any way to update the BIOS without a CPU...

    S3 sleep frienly RAID controller

    I received a MegaRAID SAS 8888ELP today. S3 does not work at all, on going to S3 sleep machine enters perpetual sleep wake sleep wake sleep. Cycle can only be interrupted by pulling the power. So much for hoping the LSI would work :(

    S3 sleep frienly RAID controller

    While looking for a new power saving server RAID controller, I found and tested the following: The Adaptec controller does not support Windows power management, but does support idling and spinning down drives, see: http://www.adaptec.com/en-us/_common/greenpower/?hpBan=greenPower-Text-US...

    S3 sleep frienly RAID controller

    All the controllers support spinning down drives at idle, so I guess it is a form of MAID? Coming back to power, drives on the same power supply as the PC will be powered down when the main PSU turns off, but drives on the enclosure PSU must be logically spinned down else they keep on...

    S3 sleep frienly RAID controller

    I am currently running Vista Ultimate x64, soon to switch to Windows 7. I've heard Win7 supports hibernation for systems with more than 4GB? I still wonder though, if the controller does not spin down drives when powering down, I doubt it will spin them down when going to S4. Seems that...

    S3 sleep frienly RAID controller

    Thanks for the detailed insight. So what you are really saying is that I won't find any half decent controller that plays nice with S3 sleep :( I really won't mind S4 hibernate, except I can't hibernate a system with 8GB RAM :( P.

    S3 sleep frienly RAID controller

    I think it is as appropriate for me to use a high performance RAID controller in my workstation as it is for my server. S3 support is a requirement for WHQL certification and driver signing, and a requirement for Vista and W2K x64 drivers. I can only assume that the certification does not...

    S3 sleep frienly RAID controller

    Hi, I am looking for an S3 sleep friendly high performance RAID controller to use in my workstations with external storage. The basic problem I have with all the controllers I tested is that they do not spin down the drives when the system enters S3 sleep, and worse when the system shuts...
