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...
Hi, I am looking for a replacement case for my Shuttle XPC Cube 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...
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.
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?
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...
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.
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...
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 :(
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:
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...
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.
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 :(
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...
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...
