    5PX2200 UPS cooling & noise management

    I bought a 5PX2200iRTN UPS some time ago but the two 80mm fans make some very loud noise, even when the batteries were fully charged the fans slowed down a little but the noise is still unbearable for a quiet desk environment, so it's currently unuseable and lay here till now. I suspect the...

    10Gb SFP+ 10GBASE-T ?

    So i have 10Gb ports on my computers (X9SRH-7TF and X9SRL-F + X540-T2) I also have a SG500X-24 switch and CAT6a cables. How to make them work together? I guess i'll need some sort of adapters between the SFP+ ports of the switch and the RJ45 rear end of the computers?

    I'm planning to build a config using a X9SCM-iiF mobo, which has 2*PCI-E 3.0 8x & 2*PCI-E 2.0 4x. Does using one of the two PCI-E 2.0 4x port for the graphic card will hurt the performances ? I plan to use 7750 or 7770 graphic card.
