Two quick questions. Hopefully this turns into a list for others to refer to:
1. What ATX boards / CPU combinations actually error correct when using unbuffered ECC ram [Not just run/post BUT actually correct errors] ?
2.Same as above but for any budget mAtc or ITX ?
Wow really appreciate the help and your time spent replying.
Clever approach, assuming that the switch does indeed write protect as intended.
Do you mind if post a few questions along the way as I implement?
Had thought about one piece of the physical HDD/SSD isolation:
-To avoid having to purchase 30 physical drives to pass through, is there a way to virtualise drives or partitions for pass through instead ?
-What is the best way to run install, on hdd for proxmox install and another for VMs ...
Thanks a lot for helping and taking the time to write the base list. I have a few questions:
1) -> Yes noted, lscpu shows apllied migitations
2) -> ideally I will have many SketchVMs (30-50), is there a way to isolate VM drives from hyper and from each other without passing throughof a...
Need to run some sketchy applications in a linux or windows vm, let's call it SketchVM.
What I want to accomplish:
- SketchVM to have access to the internet.
-Malware on SketchVM cannot infect proxmox hypervisor
-Malware on SketchVM cannot infect other vms or write to their drives
Looks like about $500-650 for a second hand EPYC board is the entry price for a mobo only, yikes.
Older EPYC CPUs are quite reasonably priced however.
For not much more than the cost of an entry level EPYC mobo, I have seen complete Xeon servers listed. Not sure why those boards are so...
Wow. I thought folks were speaking out against Ryzen + ECC as it is unregistered for potential for some other features not available on AM4 boards.
Given what you have said above, Asrock has some great consumer boards like a Pro 4 (supports ECC) that a Ryzen 5950X 16 core could find a nice home...
Budget is "flexible", but might rephrase the question to in the second hand market what is the cheapest EPYC CPU+Board combo that will get me started as an entry point to ECC RDIMM and other important features ?
Had no idea that RDIMM + server grade board is the only way to go. I was really convinced for a minute that a 3900X + as Asrock ECC UDIMM board would do me just fine. I stand corrected and am looking for alternatives now. Not sure if there are any small + quiet + Not the cost of a used car. Open...
Read carefully and noted your points about consumer boards / CPUs. So RDIMM + Server grade board w/ E3/E5/EPYC .
Space and more importantly NOISE, the hairdryer-like 70+ db sound will not be wife approved. Any suggestions for something that fits the noise/size sensitivity and will not break the...
OKAY, thank you very much for the details. I have saved this information, but not on an LTO tape unfortunately ;)
Do not appologise for the"long story", I really appreciate the thoroughness and it gives me a lot of new things to read up on an learn which makes me happy.
I will be starting a...
Yes I know single slot X1 card or an APU are solutions thanks for pointing that out and it may be the way I ultimately go.
Running headless without GPU is really what I wanted to know. The CPU-only ryzens have great performance-to-price ratios. Especially something like a 1700X, which can be...
