    be quiet! Dark Power 13 1000 vs Seasonic Electronics Vertex GX-1200

    Aside from the fact that both are challenging to get, the Be Quiet seems more reachable from overseas. Both supporting ATX 3, PCIe 5, etc. Future proof power supply. Feel safer buying the seasonic but maybe I'm just naive and the Be Quiet is well respected? Also prefer the 1200 headroom...

    Supermicro X9 questions

    Hi, I got a Supermicro X9SCM-F motherboard, which is mainly used for virtualization and storage. I know that people use a lot of Supermicro boards in their builds here, so I thought it will probably not hurt to ask some questions, and maybe I should be careful to not run into any potential...

    Chelsio T420 reports 'fw init error' during boot, works fine outside FreeBSD?

    I'm setting up a temporary 2nd server to troubleshoot my primary NAS :p :rolleyes: . To do this I've kicked the system SSD and VGA card out of a spare Hyper-V server (it's the only other Supermicro/Xeon/ECC platform that I can easily free up for a few days). The server is ideal for FreeNAS -...

    PCIe SSD boot options

    I'm starting to plan a new system and would appreciate some recommendations on selecting device(s) for the boot drive. If I did not want to boot from a USB stick or get an SSD that uses up a SATA port, it seems that the most likely option is a PCIe 3.0 x4 SSD. Most of those are M.2 connector...
