    Not that sure. I would try StaticIce on the part number.

    I'm running ESXi and prefer ECC - so I wonder if the Kingston KVR1333D3E9S/8G modules will work. One supplier has then cheaper than the Patriot sticks mentioned.

    I misread. He paid $119 for 2x8GB modules, not $119 per module :tired:

    Bit lke ZFS-Fuse on Linux. It can be done, but there is a penalty. Now if only someone would port ZFS to Windows as a native driver.

    I'm surprised so few people use FreeBSD. It's not much of a learning curve if you're familiar with Linux, its very lightweight, it's had ZFS for yonks and it's stable as hell.

    No need for ZFS-Fuse anymore.

    Yes it works, I've got tonnes of that stuff.

    I don't know either, but would be keen to find out what with it being passive and all.
    Edit: Here is an old post of the GT430 with pics: http://forums.overclockers.com.au/showpost.php?p=13246727&postcount=896
    There is a bit of work to do for this one for it to work in Mythtv, read here:

    Do you think you could reach down deep and post a link to what you are referring too ?

    Thought I would post this for fellow ESXi / HyperV / Xen etc users

    Mwave have the Cisco SG300-20 going cheap
    20 port managed gigabit switches.... Nice low power fanless 16w

    Seem to be about half price to staticice / eBay etc

    Similar features to the Procurve 1810-24G switches.

    Go to mwave .... Type SG300 into the search

    $227

    :)

    I ordered one from shopping express on friday night and paid $229. Still no notification that it's been shipped which is crap. They better not root me around. I notice that they are now $249 on their site.

    I got mine from MSY Canberra. Originally was after the $115 Patriot Signature modules but had none in stock. They did have the Patriot Gamer2 in stock for $119, as far as i can tell it is the same ram but with low profile heatsinks. The ram timings matched my current non-ECC (CL9).

    I don't see why any comparable 8GB module wouldn't work? As someone else mentioned when the specs were written 8GB modules probably weren't available, and the 785 chipset itself isn't limted to 8GB (just the 2 slots made it so).

    That one is only 10/100 with 2 gigabit uplinks. The SG300-20 is and 18/2 gigabit managed switch, with the uplinks shared over Mini-GBIC / Gigabit Ports --- cost is $443

    I have the SG300-28 which is a really nice managed switch.
    Mwave has it for $584, which isn't too bad of a price ( I think it's my price with my VIP status elsewhere).

    But if you do want one of these SG300-28 get it quick from Computer Alliance for $459 <- I think that's a bargain and they are a OCAU sponsor to boot!

    Listing is wrong,

    Specs from Cisco say
    18x10/100/1000 ports with 2xdual personality 10/100/1000 or fibre ports
