    Deskstar vs Ultrastar?

    Ultrastar are Near Line Enterprise drives. They have 5yr warranty when new. Believe they are made to run in close proximity of other drives, as in raid enclosures.

    Freenas and Mellanox Connectx-2

    Yes it worked right away after installing the card. Im hoping future drivers wont stop it from working. Now awaiting the Chelsio card to come in to have 10gbe to Freenas. 10gbe just to my desktop is not fancy or useful enough.

    Freenas and Mellanox Connectx-2

    So Ive asked this on Freenas forums already. Connectx-2 isnt supported at all. Mellanox said they only support the 3 and 4 and left out the 2. I bought 2 of the Connectx-2 and yes indeed they dont work in Freenas. So only place I could use it is in Windows. Chelsio S320 and T420-CR was...

    Freenas and Mellanox Connectx-2

    I read somewhere before that the Mellanox Connectx-2 10gb card didnt work on Freenas because of the FreeBSD version. Since the release of Freenas 9.10 that has FreeBSD 10.3, can anyone confirm the Mellanox works now?

    Question about Dell 5500 series switches

    Question about Dell 5500 series switches

    I see that these switches can stack through HDMI. In doing so, will the 10g pass through the HDMI cable? So #1 computer hooking up to #1 switch with 10g connection talk to #2 computer on #2 switch with also a 10g connection? What I dont know is stacking same as plugging a RJ45 connecting both...

    Looking for a home storage solution

    Ive been using Freenas with ZFS RaidZ2 with 6x2tb for some time. Now with it filling up and disk getting cheaper, Im finding myself buying 4tb disk and replacing the current 2tb 1 by 1. Those 2 tb will become another RaidZ2 in another computer for another backup or another storage.

    Tweaking your mining cards...squeeze every last KH/s you can from them

    So can most 290 get above 900 kh? If so what else do I need to tweak to get there?

    Motherboard Raid or Controller card?

    After you select Raid option in mobo bios, when you boot, the Raid bios becomes available to go into, When you go into the Raid Bios, you can select which drives will be in the Raid Array. Other drives will be a single drive in AHCI mode. Hope that helps.

    Corsair H60 Details Available

    Much smaller. How does a pump fit in there? That is true that could be made to fit a vid card. Hmmm maybe they should come out with versions for vid cards.
