    Any future mITX with integrated Nvidia Fermi GPU?

    I would really like to build a HTPC with new Fermi gpu (GF104, GF106, GF108) as they finally support HD bitstreaming and Im wondering if Zotac (or any other brand) has any future plans to lunch successor of the great C2D/GF9300 combo in ITX form?

    WHS "VAIL" RC0 and SBS "Aurora" RC0 Available

    Exactly! Im not touching Vail at all, with its stripping DE and overhead consumptions has totally missed the HOME word in its name. Im leaning to win7 x64 & flexraid-view (when it will be stable enough), for the time being im staying with whs v1 & flexraid.

    Your input on movie storage - BluRay

    WHS v2 Codename Vail

    Can anyone test if demigrator.exe (drive extender) is still hammering I/O every hour while streaming media, or did they fix the resource priority while drive is being used?

    Supermicro AOC-SAT2-MV8 + Seagate 1.5tb?

    Any other driver for SASLP-MV8 that would enable the smart info? The ones from supermicros ftp dont, but as remebre some tried with different boards (same driver) and on one had work while on other didnt.

    Which 1156 MB to choose?

    With Intel iCore family the ECC is not supported (disabled) on desktop processors (they can do this on the chip itself since the iCore family has bulit in memory controller). From intel site; http://www.intel.com/support/processors/corei3/sb/CS-031175.htm What that means is that the...

    Which 1156 MB to choose?

    because i3 & i5 does not support ECC + the L3406 is a sweet 24/7 cpu with 30w of tdp

    Which 1156 MB to choose?

    Ok, Im going with X8SIA-F, ordered today alongside Xeon L3406, 4GB of kingston DDR3 ECC and HP SAS expander card. Should be up and running in a few weeks.

    Which 1156 MB to choose?

    Thanks for the input guys. I know that I cant go wrong with either of the boards mentioned, but was just seeking from which one I will get most for the price (both can get for around 180€). Im more leaned forward to intel one, but is just personal preference. Are there any other mentionable...

    Which 1156 MB to choose?

    Ok, I have narrowed it down to this two; - Supermicro X8SIA-F - Intel S3420GPLX I will be running 4GB of DDR3 ECC ram with Xeon L3406 cpu. I need pcie slots for additional Gbit NIC, saslp card, hp expander, etc.. I can get both boards quite cheap, so I dont know which will be more...

    WHS free SMART plugin?

    still a mystery to me too, have tried number of things but I still dont get smart from sat2-mv8 & saslp-mv8.. have updated mb bios, reinstall whs with ahci, flashed fw of cards, etc... there are only one version of drivers on supermicro ftp site and i really think its more of a luck draw with...

    WHS free SMART plugin?

    Heh, glade I could help. Do you need parity backup solution for WHS (in an unRaid way)? @BigTy 63 bad sectors would worry me a bit. Take a close look for the next couple of days (weeks) and if number will be increasing I would defiantly RAM it. Ihmo, even with current number you could claim...

    WHS unnecessary hard drive activity

    Sure, just create .bat files with this and scheduled them when you like. This will keep demigrator disabled and not interfering with streaming. REM Batchfile to stop the WHS Drive Extender Migrator Service and set it to Disabled net stop DriveExtenderMigrator sc.exe \\localhost config...

    WHS unnecessary hard drive activity

    Yes, I have batch files for start/stop of DE. Then I have scheduled them, so demigrator is off every day during watching time. DE is really heavy on drives and its trashing I/O, thats why high bitrated files like blu-rays are stuttering during streaming.

    WHS and WD Green drives?

    what is so specific about green drives that is causing troubles for you? I have 1:1 remuxes of blu-rays and streaming works without a hickup for me from wd20eads.. I just cant see anything different from other drives except aggressive 8 sec head parking, but thats why there is wdidle3..

    WHS and WD Green drives?

    Indeed, thats why I have decided to run wdidle3. But before I do, is there any risk of data loss? I have already populated the drives and would really dont like to loose anything. Also, anything specific to watch out when patching? Can I have other drives (non WD) connected at the same time?

    WHS and WD Green drives?

    Hmm, Im not sure either, but would really not want to degrade drives anytime soon. As said, most of the time server is idleing and not doing much, but when I sometimes look over the disk management I see disk activity over all drives in pool (balancing drives?).

    WHS and WD Green drives?

    My server is idling most of the day, and is being hiberante during night. Since I bought 5 WD20EADS drives last week, I would like to know if I should use wdidle3 on them? Is it worth to decrease load/park cycles over power consumption and safeness in case of power-loss situations?

    WHS v2 Codename Vail

    Would also like to know that. If thats the case Im done with any kind of RAID or external backup solutions. Just imagine, having 2 WHS boxes, set up that one mirrors other automatically every day in other location via VPN - wet dreams :)
