    No, you are incorrect - it's a promo for customers who attend Tech@Work every year.

    Each year there are promos available to customers who attend the events held throughout Australia. The promos have been running for some time , but the Microservers only just popped up on it.

    Can you confirm these take Non-ECC Ram as well? I can't see a reference to non-ECC ram on any site with specs

    You better not be questioning Stanza... :lol:

    A quick search found nothing. :confused: But I'm sure many here are living proof you can. However, I assume you can't mix and match ECC with non-ECC.

    Unless you're planning on using software RAID I doubt you'd have an issue, I certainly haven't had any yet.

    Hi everyone. Need some help. Any ideas why my write speed over the network to the box (running FreeNAS 8.0) gets up to 60MB/s but I can read from it over the same network at only 6MB/s? seems awfully strange to me :/

    Edit: Running ZFS, with RAID-z over SMB

    So where did people get their ECC ram, I've had a look at Crucial direct and the cheapest they seem to have is around the $220 mark.

    where as www.techbuy.com.au has:

    Kingston 8GB (2 x 4GB) PC3-8500 1066MHz Registered ECC DDR3 RAM, Quad Rank x8 - CL7 $163.95
    KVR1066D3Q8R7SK2/8G

    Kingston 8GB (2 x 4GB) PC3-8500 1066MHz Registered ECC DDR3 RAM, Dual Rank x4, Intel Certified, Thermal Sensor - CL7 $181.85
    KVR1066D3D4R7SK2/8GI

    and verdict on these items?
