remove the GPUs.
connect the monitor to the onboard VGA plug on the motherboard
boot the system and go into the BIOS
in the BIOS, change the primary display from "onboard" to offboard or external PCIe.
re-install the GPU and plug the monitor to the GPU.
boot the system
It’s a very low risk system that I can’t be bothered to update because it just keeps working and frankly there’s no pressing reason to. I have many other systems that I maintain with updates etc. but I don’t want to have to rebuilt the containers/jails that are running on this particular system...
I did think about him while pondering where to get a custom cable made. I have some of his other risers.
I think the biggest problem will be communicating the exact spec of the custom PCIe slot. Not know what it’s actual spec name is will be hard for them to find what they need to be making an...
You would need the RSC-G-6 (or maybe the RH version has better clearance?) and then you will need a male-to-male PCIe ribbon riser cable.
AOM-SXMV -> RSC-G-6 -> male-male riser -> motherboard PCIe slot.
so if you just want this board to run 4x V100s as compute cards without the special network access, the oculink cable ports are not needed at all?
I was looking to try this out sometime because I was under the impression that I could connect them via ONLY the oculink ports and still use them...
this is the part I'm trying to clarify. if you know of a specific cable that can connect the "sc port" from the AOM-SXMV to a normal PCIe slot, I'd like to hear it. it seems that the RSC-G-6 is the only way to achieve this without a custom order. is that right?
but the RSC-G-6 seems to have...
it's normal PCIe "electrically" but physically it is not standard. a normal PCIe riser will not fit.
look at what the RSC-G-6 adapter looks like:
you can clearly see the physical difference in both size and pin layout between the "sc port" fingers and the PCIe slot it adapts to.
that's why I...
maybe something is getting lost in translation.
since the red ports are physically a proprietary size. how exactly did you connect the bridge connector (the red side on the AOM-SXMV) to the green ports? I'm asking how you yourself did it. not the other guy who used the RSC-G-6 riser. you said...
agree on the lack of heatsink, but I’m a little confused by what you mean about the bridge connectors being required. The first few posts in this thread seem to be saying that the whole idea of this is to circumvent those connectors completely (you said they kept dying, leading you to use the...
Are you using EPS (CPU) or PCIe (VGA) cables for the power connections? (I would assume they should be EPS connections)
have you tried swapping the order of the two PCIe data cables going to the PCIe slot on the motherboard?
