    Constant Reboots with MSI Z87I?

    I'm attempting to build a new media computer - MSI Z87I Kingston 16GB Intel 4770S Samsung 840 Pro EVGA 750 Ti HD-PLEX 250W DC-ATX I can't even get the OS installed. It boots up and the furthest I can get is about 20 seconds into the installation process. Sometimes it reboots before...

    OpenSolaris derived ZFS NAS/ SAN (OmniOS, OpenIndiana, Solaris and napp-it)

    So, when I reboot my file server, after unlocking the encrypted volume, SMB needs to essentially be disabled and re-enabled before it'll work. This does not happen with NFS. Anything I can do about this?

    PicoPSU - Maximum Spec?

    Largest Pico I can find is 160W. HDPLEX H5.S MSI A88XI AC AMD A8-7600 Samsung SSD 840 Pro XFX R7-260X-ZNJ4 or R7-250A-ZLH4 (latter more likely as external input not needed) G.Skill F3-2133C11D-16GZL I could set the A8 at 45W though I'd rather not but what I'm more concerned with is a discrete...

    OpenSolaris derived ZFS NAS/ SAN (OmniOS, OpenIndiana, Solaris and napp-it)

    Some very odd behavior and I'm stumped. Last night, scrub was slowing I/O to a crawl so I decided to cancel it. I'd also had some files that were mistakenly renamed so I ran a rollback on my General filesystem. All seemed good. A couple of hours later, no network protocols work - all the...

    Single-phase 60A PDU

    Not a PSU question but I figured I'd come to my [H] brethren.. Trying to avoid 3-phase power in the DC to save on monthly recurring costs. They offer 208V 60A single-phase but I'm having a heck of a time finding a PDU. I'd like to avoid having to go with 4 30A.

    OpenSolaris derived ZFS NAS/ SAN (OmniOS, OpenIndiana, Solaris and napp-it)

    Thanks hom - that was on my list of to-do. I did, however, find the culprit. The Corsair Force GT I had in for ZIL testing is faulty.. but it made it look like the entire pool had a problem.

    OpenSolaris derived ZFS NAS/ SAN (OmniOS, OpenIndiana, Solaris and napp-it)

    The hits just keep on coming with this thing. Things that I've observed - if I run CrystalDiskMark from a VM also on the same ESXi host, the results are fine. dd bench is still showing around 200MB/s write/500MB/s read. I determined that uTorrent is a POS but the ZIL + increasing the disk...

    Linux-based home server/NAS

    I'd read that regarding Jetway support which is honestly what has given me pause, especially for a 180 dollar Mini-ITX board.

    Linux-based home server/NAS

    has this picture changed at all? I'm in the process of building a server around the Q as well, running into the same ECC/VT-d brick wall. The Jetway board seems most likely at current, which of course does not have ECC support but includes everything else I need.

    FT/FS: Asrock Mini-ITX Board / AMD A8-3870K

    Ivy Bridge high-end SFF motherboard compilation

    Why is it so hard to find the following in one mini-ITX board: VT-d Support 16GB+ ECC Support (honestly not even a deal breaker) 2x Gbit LAN Ports Hopefully this Ivy Bridge batch yields something better though I haven't seen it yet. The closest two options today are the Jetway JNF9A-Q67 or...

    Mini-ITX Board that supports IOMMU

    Nada? Doesn't have to be AMD.. don't see any high-quality options besides the Intel boards.

    Are you waiting for the HDD prices to go back down?

    Just built my ZFS box (mickinfickin' Hudson chipset and no IOMMU.... rage) and I got to thinking should I just wait to buy drives (preferably 7K4000's) when prices get back to 10-20% higher than last year? http://camelegg.com/product/N82E16822145473?locale=US Is anyone else finding themselves...

    Mini-ITX Board that supports IOMMU

    AMD? I installed an A75M-ITX from AsRock and everything is great about the board.. except it doesn't passthrough. I should have been paying more attention. Rage.

    Fanless PSU for the Lian Li PC-Q25B

    So... the Seasonic X-400/460 is just SLIGHTLY too big (rage) to fit. Any recommendations? Already aware of the Lian Li Extender which I'd rather not use.

    Lian-Li PC-Q25

    I was wondering the same re: processor heatsink - hadn't seen much and I know people are probably trying to keep this particular case quiet given it's application. NewEgg says the maximum cooler height is 80mm - this seems to fit the bill; the Scythe Kozuti and Shuriken should fit the bill...

    Ideal Hardware Card for Home ZFS Application?

    I'd seen a lot of people going with the M1015, some having quite a bit of trouble with the IT mode.. figured I'd look for alternatives. Seems like I should just bite the bullet.

    D2700 Mini-ITX Board with 6x SATA?

    Yes, the plan is to go with a ZFS build for this in a PC-Q25B. I'm not trying to get massive performance out of it so the onboard RAID will likely suffice but are there any boards that allow for a PCI option? I'm still trying to decide between Atom or an i7 board (dedicated ZFS on the Atom or...

    D2700 Mini-ITX Board with 6x SATA?

    Is there any option out there for this yet? I see that SuperMicro has a D525 board but no D2700.. box will be a ZFS server.
