So, I have the 10gig network bug. Did a ton of reading googling and research.
After weeks of lurking around on forums and talking with people, i bought a lightly used perfectly working Brocade 6450-24p switch.
This selected switch, has 4x 10gig sfp ports and 24 1gig poe ports.
The nice thing, this will replace 2 switches at home, and give me 10gig ports.
I’ll be running a sfp 10gig fiber module to my server with a 50′ lc-lc dual mode fiber cable.
And yes, the switch is now silent. Imo it wasnt that loud when its fully booted with newest firmware, but for me I changed fans anyways to make it virtually silent now.
