    Disk Passthrough ESXi to FreeNAS

    Hi, my first post here after discovering this useful forum! I have at home a PC running ESXi 6.7.0, let's call it my "homelab server". It is nothing special, it has an AMD FX-8350, 32GB RAM DDR3, a 512GB SSD for the ESXI and some VM's (Server Core 2016 and a couple of W10 VM's). I'd like to...

    Watercooled Threadripper workstation

    I actually built this in 2009 but it runs up to the present day. I use this for a big mixture of gaming, video editing, video capture, media conversion, audio production/capture/editing/restoration and photo editing. Poor thing does take a hammering. It's been water cooled since it started life...

    AMD Epyc NVME support

It uses the H11SSW-NT server board and wondered if anyone had any experience setting one up with OmniOS and Napp-it. Haven't had any luck so far with...

    WTB: Intel Platinum Xeon (QS)

    So after doing a little research it looks like Dell's Bios only supports QS or OEM processors. So my ability to run ES chips it out. Looking to buy Intel QS or Retail/OEM chips! PM me for prices.

    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...

    ESXi 6.7 on Ryzen x399 for VMs + GPU passthrough desktop

    Hey, tl;dr, I'm thinking of migrating my homelab from a handful of Sandy and Ivy Bridge E3s and Core i5/i7s to a single Ryzen ESXi Windows desktop (GPU passthrough) / FreeBSD file server (since Ryzen supports ECC) and a trio of old Thinkpads T520s to save power but still have high availability...

    AMD EPYC 7351P + GIGABYTE MZ31-AR0 = 7 GPUS?

    Hi Guys, I just saw the review on the AMD EPYC 7351P CPU but it did not really go into GPU usage so I thought I would do a post in here to get some feedback and or advice on this. We are looking to build a 7 GPU rack using the EPCY so we can take advantage of the 128 PCIE lanes, basically...

    AMD Epyc CPU frequency on linux

    128Gb RAM on Threadripper at 2400 Mhz. Can it be done?

    Is a Threadripper build with 128GB unbuffered ECC RAM at 2400+ Mhz a realistic goal? Threadripper only takes unbuffered RAM, which really limits my options. here is my problem: I can't do 4x32 Gb sticks because I can't find unregistered ECC 32Gb sticks, much less single rank ones. I could do...

    1P AMD EPYC 7601 Power Consumption

    Not great but not bad by any means: 351W Decent idle and maximum views of the system today. That is a fairly bare config with 2x SATA SSDs and only using Broadcom networking. No 24x U.2 NVMe drives or NICs installed.

    AMD Ryzen Threadripper 96GB and Using 6 Different DIMMs

    I had a 4x 16GB DDR4-2800 Patriot Viper kit and a 2x 16GB DDR4-2666 Patriot Viper kit. Moving from dual Intel Xeon E5 V3 to a single TR 1950X CPU without RDIMMs was going to be an issue RAM wise. I followed what I would normally do mixing DIMMs on a server platform. Same DIMMs in the same...
