  1. I changed the description a little. All 6 fans work. I didn’t seat 2 on the fan wall well enough and thought they were broken. After reseating them firmly, they work perfectly fine.
  2. +1 Also, Norco 4116/4216 would be greatly appreciated!
  3. The updated version of Rosewill’s RSV-L4212 just popped up on Newegg. Comes with USB 3.0 and few upgrades in quality. Helluva steal with 12 x 3.5” hotswappable drives for $199.99. https://www.newegg.com/out-surface-painting-black-only-rosewill-rsv-l4312/p/N82E16811147316
  4. From what UnRAID version to what Nvidia UnRAID version did you go to?
  5. It has more to do with the lack of airflow over the 5.25” bays, which can be a great use if you want to expand your number of hard drives. There aren’t any vents for airflow to come in there with the Deep Silence cases. If you add a hard drive cage (such as a Supermicro CSE-M35T-1B or iStarUSA BPN-DE350SS), you won’t be able to keep the drives cool with the door shut.
  6. No problem. I just thought I'd share what I've learned since trying to figure out what I'm going to build here in the near future. I found you a X10SRH-CLN4F for $300. It's not the exact same as the X10SRH-CF but the only difference is slightly less PCIe lanes due to having a 4 x 1GB NIC's. That's it. This guy also flashed the 3008 controller as well. Link: https://forums.servethehome.com/index.php?threads/fs-2x-sm-x10srh-cln4f-o-xeon-e5-v3-4-boards-with-ipmi-license.25863/ Word of caution on the Deep Silence cases. I've heard they have a bad reputation when it comes to air flow even with Noctua's. Have you thought about going with a rackmount case? I've heard good things about the Rosewill RSV-L4500 and RSV-L4412. I also have a Norco RPC-4116 if you wanted to go that route (just to throw it out there). If you are set on a tower case, I think the Fractal XL R2 and the Corsiar Obsidian 750D Airflow are really good options for great airflow and tons of hard drive bays (with a couple more cages).
  7. I'm selling two items today from two prospective builds here in Cincinnati, OH. I decided there is a better solution to what I want to do. Item #1: Norco RPC-4116 - $180 local cash or $250 shipped PayPal (Cont. US) => Very lightly used (less than 10 hours total), one of the 80mm fans on the fan wall was detached and had its clip holder broken during shipping, I tested all the SATA ports on the backplane and all performed well, it has a 12 Gb v2.0 backplane, it will come with all the screws and accessories that were in the package originally Item #2: Fractal R5 Hard Drive Cages (Both Top and Bottom) and HDD Trays - $35 local cash or $35+Shipping PayPal (Cont. US) => Bought these off eBay to do an ultimate R5 build but decided I wanted to go to a rackmount case instead, they do not come with anti-vibration grommets or screws (although if you already have an R5 case, just contact the US tech team and they'll ship them to you for the cost of shipping), there is a light scratch on the metal side of the top cage
  8. From a functional standpoint, it looks fine. Just be aware that with a Ryzen 1st Gen will most likely need some adjustments so it doesn't cause freezes and crashes.
  9. Case: That case actually doesn’t have 9 x 5.25” slots. The Regular Trooper did but the SE version is completely different on the inside. If you want to go that route of having a tower, the Antec Nine Hundred is about the only one currently available out there that you could use. There are tons of other models from other manufacturers that you could use but they’ll all be in a Used condition and you’ll have to luck upon one on eBay or Craigslist. If you’re cool with a possible rack mount setup, the Rosewill RSV-L4500, RSV-R4000, or RSV-L4000 would all be good options where you could take out their included cages and replace them with the Chieftec ones. Motherboard: If you’re going Ryzen, get at least a X470 motherboard. The X470 will give you more leeway in upgrading in the future and is a better chipset than the X370. Ram: Ryzen processors and motherboards don’t take RDIMM’s, only UDIMM’s. The Kingston KSM26ED8/16ME and /8ME are good options that also have higher speeds which will be important since you’ll be going with a Zen+ CPU. Controller: Go with a LSI (or LSI flashed alternative) or Adaptec HBA. LSI cards are really preferred though. They are cheap, easy to flash or find flashed, work well, and have essentially no issues with UnRAID since forever. Power Supply: You won’t need a PSU that big. A 650W one would be plenty.
  10. If you want SATA3 and SAS3, I’d go with a LGA2011-R3 CPU and Motherboard. The X10SRH-CF looks to be right up your alley: https://www.supermicro.com/en/products/motherboard/X10SRH-CF https://www.provantage.com/supermicro-mbd-x10srh-cf~7SUPM4A7.htm You will have to flash the SAS3008 controller but it shouldn’t be too difficult and there are instructions out there on how exactly to accomplish this. Match this with a E5-2640 v3 or a E5-1650 v3 and you got a decently powerful CPU for around $100. You should be able to get 4 x 8GB DDR4 ECC RDIMM’s for around $145 (that way you saturate the quad channel memory).
  11. How is the board's version of IPMI? Does it work similarly to Supermicro's?
  12. Wow! That would be cool if it works. Let us know what happens when you try it out! Could be they were correct in the manual and the Tech rep was just clueless of how it works.
  13. A U.2 slot is really just a funny looking PCIE 3.0 x4 slot. It’s mostly used to connect to enterprise 2.5” NVME drives. There’s no SAS controller attached to the port though and that’s why you can’t use it like a 9300-8i even though the port is identical and will actually accept the same cables.
