Re: Tezro, Quad-R16K/1GHz (16MB L2), 4GB, V12/DM3, RAID

TBH I'm not entirely sure, there are others here who know quite a bit more about Tezro configs than I do. Only thing I would mention about the Tezro rack is noise, mine is rather loud (so I don't use it very often atm): http://forums.nekochan.net/viewtopic.php?f=14&t=16731441 In either case thou...

Re: Announcement - Fuel ATX PSU adapters available for purchase

The F3 has 4x SATA, the T3 has 6x SATA, so it looks like you have the F3. Thanks!

I'm wondering whether the Thermaltake Toughpower units I have would work ok...

Re: Announcement - Fuel ATX PSU adapters available for purchase

Thanks!! I found two variants, the Seasonic SS-500ET-T3 and the Seasonic SS-500ET-F3, which one is your unit?

Re: Announcement - Fuel ATX PSU adapters available for purchase

What model of Seasonic? Ideally, the first post in this thread, or somewhere, should maintain a list of known, guaranteed ok PSUs that one can use with the adapters. One problem with nekochan is a lot of relevant info is incredibly fractured, and finding it often difficult due to the way the search ...

Re: Indy or O2 for hostile-heat environment

... I suspect that some CPUs may be more picky about voltage, and a PSU that's in-spec, but barely, used with one of those CPUs, may result in noticeable flakiness. ... That sounds very plausible. It might be one of the issues which the various mbd revisions, PROM updates and PSU changes sought to ...

Re: Indy or O2 for hostile-heat environment

True, ChallengeS is reliable (I ran one for 5 years at a uni and it never crashed once; the NT server would crash sometimes as often as a dozen times a day), but it still has the issue of a costly PSU to replace. Also of course, it only has 10Mbit (at least O2 has 10/100, though the o.p. hasn't said...
