    Does NUMA Matter when Installing SAS HBA's, NVME drives and other expansion in MP systems?

    Hey all, I have a dual socket server board (Supermicro X9DRI-F and two Xeon E5-2650v2's). As I was installing a few SAS HBA's, a 10GB Ethernet card and preparing for future NVME drives, it struck me. Each of the PCIe slots is labeled with which CPU the lanes are attached to. Two slots (16x...

    NVMe SSD no longer recognized

    I took out a Samsung 950 M.2 NVMe that was working fine as my boot drive, reinstalled it, and now neither BIOS nor Windows 10 recognizes it. It heats up when the computer is on. I've taken it out and reinstalled it several times to no avail. I live in a small city and don't think I know...
