I finally found the time to troubleshoot why my NAS is not really starting up and it seems the SuperMicro X10SL7-F I received doesn’t work. I have a new Cooler Master power supply 750W and when turning the machine on (using the ON/OFF connected case button) the LE6 becomes red. Supermicro said I probably need RMA.
So while I do have the CPU (a Xeon E3 something… don’t remember and couldn’t find what I bought, nor how much I paid for it) and the 32GB ECC RAM, I am wondering where I should just buy a 2nd hand/refurbished mobo and keep that setup, or if there is something “better” which would fit similar pricing more or less, be able to connect my SAS and SATA drives and keep the same format to fit in the case (microATX)?
I live in South East Asia and getting things can be troublesome. Prices of that mobo without CPU/RAM oscillates between $100 to $400+ . The easiest to get for me would be in the $200 range (fastest and lowest import duties).
Thank you for your opinions.
