  1. Not sure if this will work for you, but have you checked ASUS NVIDIA GeForce GT 710
  2. Hi, I have bought all my HBAs always on eBay, with great success, but recently i read there are lots of fakes, specially from china, so just wondering if anyone have bought a LSI 9305-24i on ebay that can vouch for the seller? (given that its new year in asia, ill wait, there is no rush).
  3. Even though probably 8-10TB are the popular shucking drives, i stumble on an sale that seems interesting for someone looking for bigger storage, WD 14TB My Book Desktop USB 3.0 External Hard Drive $229.99
  4. Hi, Wondering what do you guys recommend for Sata III ssd write caching? im eyeballing the IronWolf SSD 110 de 1.92 TB and Micron 5200 MAX 1.92TB
  5. Just wondering why not use BIOS fan control ?
  6. Seems BHPhoto matched the offering, WD 10TB Elements Desktop USB 3.0 External Hard Drive
  7. I bought both 8tb and 10tb about two months ago in another sale, and i can confirm these have the 3.3V reset issue, and you will need to do the following, How to Fix the 3.3V Pin Issue in White Label Disks Shucked from Western Digital 8TB Easystore Drives
  8. I agree, but sadly it sold out.
  9. In case anyone is into shucking drives, there are some good deals on BHPhoto, only 2 allowed on each at the discounted price, WD 10TB My Book Desktop USB 3.0 External Hard Drive $146 WD 8TB My Book Desktop USB 3.0 External Hard Drive $127
  10. Thanks for feedback. I just took out a Samsung 850Pro 1tb from my main setup for 970Pro 1tb, its very likely that ill use it for the write cache on unraid, i didn't want to go this route because of 1tb limitation, but it shouldn't diminish the write speed even on larger files, at least to keep maxing the gigbit lan transfer rates. Thanks again for the reply.
  11. Hi, I'm doing a new build soon, and atm chosing the write drive for a write cache (not interest atm on a read cache), usually i transfer above 1tb a month (most of the time in one day), trying to avoid the low write speeds of unRaid, so its very likely ill be adding an ssd as a write cache, but very tempted on Intel 2TB 660P NVMe M.2 Internal SSD 2TB as its going for $220, although im worried about two things, 1) Its transfer speeds outside the SLC cache, i was watching How SSD Technology Keeps Getting WORSE! - Intel 660p Review and drops to 93mb/s after the cache is used, thessdreview Intel SSD 660P M.2 NVMe SSD Review (1TB) drops to 100MB/s, but yet to see on 2tb version. 2) Its endurance being QLC, but the 2tb has 400TBW rating, thats much more than my unRaid server will ever receive, im guessing maybe around 200tb thinking on expanding on the next 5 years. Still i would like your opinion into if you guys think its a good option or should i go with something else.
  12. Hi, I'm about to make a unRaid server, chosing components atm, eyeballing the Intel Xeon E-2146G + SUPERMICRO MBD-X11SCA-F-O, but wondering if you guys know or recommend c246 to work fine with unRAID 6.6.7? or do you guys recommend to go with older hardware?
  13. Its be lowered to WD 10TB Elements Desktop USB 3.0 External Hard Drive $159.99
  14. In case someone is interested, BHPhoto has the WD 10TB My Book Desktop USB 3.0 External Hard Drive on the deal zone, going for $179.99 for 13 more hours (no taxes to most states), i only could order 2, i feel its a fair price for 10tb.
  15. I have been buying a lot of the 8TB my books, around 25 on different dates, the initial batches came with reds, then whites that worked fine with Sata power, performance wise identical to the reds, around sept 2017 all that have come have the 3.3v issue, to me doing the tape was not that easy, so i simply changed from sata power to molex power from the PSU, then use sata power adapters (not plastic infused but stapled) and finally the Silverstone 4-in-1 SATA Power CP06-E4 and been running fine.
