    cpu for drivepool/scanner

    So I called Gigabyte and supermicro... supermicro was great and said u can use up to over 200+ drives with revese breakout cables and backplanes. but had no clue about the expander card... Gigabyte said they think im better off with the Z97 board because its a newer chipset. and ecc ram is not needed.. O by way supermicro said ECC is a must. its a hard call because I love both boards.. and now Microsoft is giving people a free upgrade to win 10 from 7 or 8.1 my ? now is what board do I upgrade to...

    another ? on that supermicro board is does the sas2 ports support being connected to that intel 24 port raid expander card drashna showed me?

    cpu for drivepool/scanner

    im looking at a possible supermicro board model MBD-X10SL7-F-O I like it cause it has 4 sata 2 3.0gb/s and 2 sata 3 6.0gb/s + 8 sas2 6.0gb/s from an onboard LSI 2308 card... my ? is Are the sas2 ports using standard sata cables because they look like it from pics. my only issue with this board is that I would have to buy a kit of ecc ram .. no big issue though.. in conclusion do I get the supermicro or the gigabyte z97 that uses standard ddr 3 ram...

    Is it worth water cooling the xeon 1246v3 considering im not overclocking it. I was looking at the corsair hydro H80i water cooling system with corsair link for a more quiet operation... Or is the stock fan quiet enough.

    im looking at the Gigabyte GA-Z97MX-Gaming 5 micro atx motherboard on newegg for 127.99 plus 10 dollar rebate and a intel Xeon E3-1246 v3 for 273.99 and a 6 TB wd red for 266.00. Im gonna run the win 8 eval until win 10 launches and that will probably be my "server os" other system specs are as follows.... 1 Kingston V300 120gb ssd sys drive 1 1TB 2.5 in red in pool 1 1 TB 3.5 inch green and 1 1 TB b lack in pool,, 16gb gskill ddr 3 1600 ram (ripjaws) possibly upgrading to 32 gb tridents at later time. this config looks good to me unless anyone has a better idea for a motherboard bu
  8. I have a quick ? is there a limit to the number of red drives in a server?im planning a total of 11 ( 10 hopefully 6 TB + & 1 @ 2.5 inch 1TB
  9. I have the 2.5 inch 1 TB and it is fast enough. the 1 issue ive had was when I had to run a system reload I diconected the red drive to hook a dvd rom up... after reload I reconnected the red and my system would not see it.... so I called newegg and got it rmad immediately new drive is back up running flawlessly.. im getting ready to oder the 6 TB red and my best advise is backup backup backup...and im switching to a usb dvd rom for system reloads because disconnecting hdd sucks. BTW newegg rma is much faster than WD
  10. is your pool backed up ? what brand hard drives are u using in pool?
  11. have you considered a Xeon for a server im building mine with a Xeon 1246 V3 for 273.99 for the cpu and a gigabyte micro mobo for Ga-z97-Mx gaming 5 mobo with 3 pci 16 slots u can get that board and xeon chip for roughly 400.. also consider the fractal design Node 804 if you are willing to go micro atx .... this case can easily support 10 3.5 inch hdd 2 2.5 inch HDD and a slot load dvd drive. I own it and love it. im running my home server with 3 1TB drives for now... and looking at some 6 TB drives also using win 8.1 pro as my os for now with drivepool ....this machine rocks with my phe

    Have u guys saw the xeon E3 1246 V3 it cheaper then the 1275 V3 and same clock .... my ? what am I losing???

    cpu for drivepool/scanner

    the board im looking at purchasing will have 3 pci express 16 slots if I get the gigabyte or 2 pci express 16 slots if I get the MSI... I prefer msi because they last along time for me my current board is an MSI 880GMA-E45 socket AM3 and im only changing because it has only 1 pci express 2.0 16 slot and I want 2 minimum and new boards are all pci express 3.0. also socket 1150 is limited to 16 lanes while the new socket 2011 v3 is up to 40 lanes with DDR 4 ram support

    cpu for drivepool/scanner

    anyone here understand pci express lanes? xeon I want supports 16 lanes and my new system will run onboard graphics from the xeon then I need 8 lanes for main lsi raid card and 4 lanes for intel 24 port expander card if and when I get it..

    cpu for drivepool/scanner

    hey guys im considering my new board and cpu (loving the xeon V3 1275 socket 1150. my ? is will 16 pci express lanes be enough for the lsi 8 port sata 3.0 raid card and down the road possibly an intel 24 port expander card or will I need a chip with more lanes like these new 28 lane and 40 lane I7 monsters on socket 2011 V3
