Other news
As you can tell most of the farm is running Rosetta as much as possible trying to help out with Covid-19 research.

I have ordered six Noctua cooling fans to replace the case fans in the front of Fractal Designs ARC Midi cases. They contain the i7-8700 motherboards. They all work fine and I even have a couple of spares, however the Noctua fans have a higher airflow, are quieter and last longer.

Storage server
The first part of the storage server upgrade was to increase its disk capacity. I posted about it in March. When I did that upgrade I found the motherboard had a problem with one of the memory sockets (or the controller). I ordered a replacement motherboard but I am still waiting for it to be shipped.

The second part of the upgrade will be CPU and memory. I want to give it 128GB of memory (it supports up to 256GB). It has a Xeon E5 2620v3 CPU at the moment that I will upgrade to a v4 Xeon, which is the latest the motherboard supports.
