    AiO: ESXi, OmniOS, Napp-it on Ryzen 3rd gen

    At first look the Asus X570-ACE looks good, but seems there are some limitations on NVMe drives and PCIe slots. Have looked at a few more motherboards and Gigabyte X570 AORUS ULTRA looks to be a great contender in the same price range, with more features \ pcie lanes exposed. I'm planning to...

    AiO: ESXi, OmniOS, Napp-it on Ryzen 3rd gen

    First of, thank you all for all your contributions here on the forum. I'm not an active writing user, but I often read here as I'm really into various computer and network stuff. I have the last couple of years run a AiO, with ESXi with 4-5 VMs, one of them with OmniOS with Nappit for ZFS...

    What kind of read\write performance do you guys get with the x1 PCI slot? I only get around 300mbyte\s with a Samsung SM963, running the device in passthrough(through ESXI) to nappit\omnios. Was expecting at least double of this...

    Happy times. Testet with a Samsung PM961 NVMe on this Datto board(with latest bios). I confirm that this does indeed show up and works under ESXi :) Have ordered a couple of SM963 to be used with this setup. However I also put in a SATA disk in the other m.2 slot, this did show up in the bios...

    I have not received the motherboards yet and I will be going on vacation for a week or two. But this is one of the first things I will check when I get back :) The NVMe drive located in my laptop is a Samsung PM961 NVMe drive. I will report back as soon get the chance to test it Feel free to...

    Good suggestion, I'll try to insert the NVMe drive currently located in my Dell XPS 13 laptop to see what the ASRock\Datto MB Board will report when the boardsarrive. If anyone else have any knowledge about this, please let us know :)

    Datto Xeon D 1541 board -- $501.15 shipped + 6/8% ebay bucks for some

    Thanks Evan. But I am a little concerned that there is no word about NVMe in the Asrock user manual or on their page. But based on your answer a m.2 NVMe drive will fall back to 'PCIe mode' in order to be comptabile with non NVMe motherboard? Just trying to understand this 100% before I go...

    Datto Xeon D 1541 board -- $501.15 shipped + 6/8% ebay bucks for some

    Just bought two of these myself. I understand that they have 2 M.2 connectors, that can support either SATA or PCI-E x1 3.0(limited to x1 speed according to the Asrock user manual block diagram). I assume a PCI-E x1 3.0 SSD(up to 950mb/s) will be faster than a SATA(approx 550mb/s) SSD. Can...
