    Thank you for the replies. cdabc123 Have a pair of 5650s in the EVGA SR-2 but only 48 gb of ram. Where you seeing Xeon v2 motherboards for $100-$150. Ebay seems want $400+ for a Supermicro dual xeon v2 motherboard which may be cheaper just to buy a used server and remove what a I need and...

    dual opteron 6 core 24 bay supermicro server won't post after power down to install 14 tb drives

    Well I went from 12 to 16 drives. actually 17 including the ssd for the virtual machines do spinners really take that much power? Its not like this has a beefy video card. System is old I bought it used in 2013. Guess it was time.

    Recommendations please on replacement esxi server.

    Looking to replace my old dual opteron 24 bay supermicro server I bought on a hot deal here awhile ago. It died when I shut down to install 14 tb drives and won't post. Managed to rig it up running with a evga sr-2 motherboard so not in a rush to buy. Old server hosted the following ESXi...

    dual opteron 6 core 24 bay supermicro server won't post after power down to install 14 tb drives

    Thank you for the replies. Don't think its the drives. System won't post. Seems like the power supply did take the motherboard with it since I tried another power supply from another system and it still wont post. I didn't remove any drives it has 24 bays. Just added 4 to set up another raid.

    Nope. Just shut down server, I slided out empty cadies put the 4 drives I shucked in. Server wouldn't post when powered up. The power supplies is bad according to the tester it probably took the motherboard with it not sure if this worth trying to salvage buying another board and power...

    MainGear Pre Config. Thoughts?

    I am not a fan of MSI are there other motherboard options? What is the brand and ram configuration how many sticks and speed of each? What is the brand and rating of the power supply? For $2700 they better be giving you an Corsair, Evga, Seasonic 80 Plus Gold or better unit.

    Star Wars: Squadrons

    VKB Gladiator NXT works pretty well. May need a separate throttle since using the one on the stick is a bit awkward and you don't quite have enough buttons for everything. I have not finished the campaign so not sure if you earn all the upgrades via campaign single player or you have to play...

    Has anyone tried Threadripper 3 and Windows 7 ?

    I have my 3960x on Gigabyte TRX40 Designaire working with a dual boot with OSX/Win10. Win7 wouldn't install wouldn't see any drives to install so I would say Win 7 doesn't work unless someone has a work around.

    Gigabyte Designare TRX40 blue screens with any of the gigabyte software.

    If I install the gigabyte software and try using it I get a blue screen crash. Rest of specs in sig. Is there a way to fix this or is there no point to using it for tweaks or monitoring? I uninstalled it and system is stable.
