    Samsung NVMe drivers for MS Windows Server 2016 ?

    AVP thanks for the tip! Seems like Samsung NVMe Controller is now installed in the Device Manager. But does the Samsung Magician work? I can't run it... Tried different versions - no luck... UPD: Samsung_Magician_Installer_6.1.0.zip works flawlessly! (Except the fact he tells that new version...

    How to create a bootable NVMe RAID 0 on EPYC 7601 (H11DSi-NT rev. 2.0)?

    BIOS doesn’t show any RAID option. So, is it a “software only” option? Why did they miss EPYC? (as THREADRIPPER has an option)

    Gigabyte MZ31-AR0 memory configuration

    Hi, everybody! Read all the topic, but still not sure - how should I populate memory slots on this board if I have only 8 DIMMs for the best performance: A1B1C1D1E1F1G1H1 or A0B0C0D0E0F0G0H0 ? And is there any gain in a performance if I populate all the slots?

    AMD EPYC 7601 an Engineering Sample - how does it look like?

    Hello everybody! I have never seen an Engineering Sample CPU from AMD, how does it look like? I'm a bit worried, because I bought a matched pair on eBay, it seems like it is an ordinary AMD EPYC 7601 CPU, but it doesn't have an "EPYC" engraving on it... Can it be an Engineering Sample? And here...

    Selecting Dual EPYC motherboard... Is there any other option except Supermicro?

    You're almost right, but earplugs don't come bundled. Well, EPYC is powerful, works well, it's cheaper than top of Intel's CPUs, it's also good in rendering, 2666 memory, multicore performance is perfect, why not? And you can watercool it, getting an absolute silent workstation... Moreover it...

    Selecting Dual EPYC motherboard... Is there any other option except Supermicro?

    Googled, but no luck... Seems like Supermicro H11DSi-series is the only motherboard for Dual EPYC configuration... The other choice is Gigabyte MZ31-AR0 or Tyan Tomcat SX S8026, but it has only a single EPYC socket... I like my Supermicro H11DSi-NT, but it has no Hard Disk Drive activity LED...

    Dual EPYC 7601 on H11DSi-NT weak Cinebench R15 score

    No. The Cinebench R15 performance dramatically decreases with "SMT" option (Simultaneous MultiThreading) disabled. It barely achieves 5500-5600cb (like a pair of my E5-2696V4). Are you sure you can improve performance disabling multithreading?! I beleive - more threads -> better performance...

    Dual EPYC 7601 on H11DSi-NT weak Cinebench R15 score

    Yes, got all the 16 DIMMs on my H11DSi-NT populated and now it sometimes is jumping over 7000cb. Over 6500cb right away after the boot. It would have been even better if I had 2666 memory installed (I'm using 2400 16 Gb Samsung memory now). Thanks to all for helping!

    Dual EPYC 7601 on H11DSi-NT weak Cinebench R15 score

    Excellent! Thanks a lot! Added 6 memory modules (3 more to each CPU) and it jumped over 6000cb at once! Just G R E A T ! ! Thank you, man! You saved me - I checked every BIOS option, every Windows driver - no luck. I was even thinking that something is wrong with the mobo or CPU... Just addsome...

    Dual EPYC 7601 on H11DSi-NT weak Cinebench R15 score

    Hello, everyone! Can anyone help me in tuning of my H11DSi-NT to perform a decent Cinebench R15 score? Now I can only achieve a little over 3000cb... Windows Server 2016 Windows power scheme: Performance 32 Gb of DDR4 2400 ECC RAM (Samsung) 2 modules x 16 Gb (one module on each CPU). 64 Cores...

    Xeon E5-2699 V4 - $1750

    Hi, guys! I'm also going to buy a couple of 2699V4, and after googling "crown tech solutions" I ran into your thread... Poping up this topic, I'm a little curious: Why the hell is 2699V4 TWICE as expensive??
