  1. Never seen 6TB disks this low! (limit 5) http://www.neweggbusiness.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9B-22-236-797 and $244 if you prefer the Seagate 6TB http://www.neweggbusiness.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9B-22-178-520
  2. I got the Tyan S5510GM3NR after John recommended it for an ESXi unRAID server. I've been running it 24/7 for the past eight months. Everything is smooth and sweet. All the nics are easy for a virtual newbie like me to set up. No start up or shutdown issues either. Right now I'm running an unRAID VM, a Win7 VM, a WHS VM, and an OpenVPN appliance using the M1015+expander. It's a beautiful board.
  3. NewEgg has the 240GB Agility3 SSD for $269.99. There is a $20 mail-in rebate and they give you a $30 gift card after purchase. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820227727
  4. The Petrol is cheaper because it uses async NAND. It's still faster than your old HDD, but you might wanna look for a synchronous SSD: http://www.hardocp.com/article/2011/08/07/nand_flash_faces_off_synchronous_vs_asynchronous/
  5. I just got one of these as I was running out of ports. It's working great so far, but I miss the dual lights of my old Netgear that showed me which device was connected at 1000BT. The Zyxel does run at 65F while the Netgear was 95F. LOL
  6. I was running one MV8 on 5beta11 beautifully. Later I moved the MV8 to another box and migrated the array on to my new virtual ESXi (passing thru M1015 with expander thx to John's tutor). Kept unRAID at beta11, and it works great. I hope the LSI issues are resolved for beta15+.
  7. This reminds me that I better sell my Asus Atom-Ion board before the coffin gets nailed shut.
  8. Do they have cheap hardware now that allows passing HD audio over HDMI? That was one of the reasons I left HTPCs for PCHs and PBOs.
  9. desktop RAM with 1337 heatsinks. These aren't your grandma's Ripjaws...These are RipjawsX http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231428
  10. Did you read the Tech details? Seagate 2 TB Speed:5900 rpm Seek time: 5.1 ms avg micro-hard-drives 80GB 2.5" SATA Drive WD800BEVT
  11. I'm also cobbling together an ESXi build after scoring awesome BF deals. I tried ESXi on a little HP microserver and found it fun to get VMs running. But with no pass-through ability, time for an upgrade!
  12. Use promo code MIMKB2BACYB25 at checkout for -$50 off when you spend $250 or more. http://www.neweggbusiness.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819115070 I'm not sure what it takes to get a business acct. But this cpu is too rich for my blood any way.:-p
  13. I don't see the 2500k you mentioned. Just the 2400 at $150......still a good price on the 2400.($40 off Newegg) http://www.microcenter.com/single_product_results.phtml?product_id=0354590
  14. I just had a bracket from another card that I used. I'd be interested too in another way to mount it. I just got my Ebay M1015 and expander in. Followed the easy RAID-->IT flash instructions. I tried doing it on an Asus motherboard (didn't work), but my old Gigabyte board worked fine. Hooked them up to my low-power ASUS AT3IONT-I system and ran parity on about 16 drives using 1 fast connection from the M1015 to the parity, cache, etc. and the other 12 using the expander via the other M1015 port. (still gotta buy one more SAS cable for the expander as I needed 7 total for 24 ports)
