I would imagine, for the target audience of this platform, that single slot GPUs could very much be a viable option. The P4000, RTX4000, are just a couple that come to mind. You could virtualize a CAD lab with a couple of these bad boys and put thin clients on the desks to save space and heat load.
Will, can you also look into the PCI-E Layout for the M.2 Drives? I know for the X470D4U the actual lane assignments and speeds were a little weird, with one being PCIE2 x4 and one being PCIE3 x2.
I'm interested to see how the Gen4 link to the chipset gave them wiggle room.
From the spec Sheet...
I am having a strange spanning tree problem I cannot explain.
I have an HP E3800 stack as my core.
It's spanning tree is turned on globally and set as the root:
The Brocade ICX 6450 Switch I have is uplinked to port 2/50. It is not designated as a
If I turn on spanning-tree root guard I...
I understand man, truly.
Here's what I think. Alot of people start off their IT careers by building PCs for friends, doing basic helpdesk roles, etc. Alot of them try to break out and do more complex stuff and try to do consulting work for small businesses to build up their resumes. Alot of...
I understand and appreciate the concerns.
This article, in its entirety was written to almost 10,000 words. Patrick and I decided to spin the primer on ZFS to a dedicated piece not part of the lab. That is already written and edited and will be coming soon. I had actually wanted that...
What motherboard are you using and what other addin cards do you have?
My best guess would be that you are using an M.2 slot that is going through the chipset and not to the CPU itself, and you have other competing resources using up all of the bandwidth.
Before I begin, I love your name and the fact that the question and enthusiasm of your post match it makes me very happy lol :)
I am a very visual learner. My learning style is geared around watching and doing. As such, the combination of watching things on YouTube and buying stuff to play with...
I'm working on testing some stuff in TrueNAS Core and I am looking for some DDR3 ECC UDIMMS to go along with a Supermicro X10SLL-F?
If anyone still has some laying around and doesn't mind giving it up for a fair price let me know :)
For those of you keeping track at home, the above Supermicro/Intel NIC is based on the older 82599EN chip, as Zack points out. This is, however, a PCI-E 2.0 card: Intel® 82599EN 10 Gigabit Ethernet Controller Product Specifications
It is also a 25x25mm package on 65nm, this thing will get...
