    Dual EPYC 7742s for 3D Rendering (part of a Render Farm)

    I do a lot of CPU rendering in Cinema 4D. I render 4K high-framerate animations, so they take a long time. Currently I have a bunch of mid 2010s laptops and a desktop hooked up and I use my own Python-based render manager to distribute workloads to each machine. Even with 7 laptops and the...

    Question on SuperMicro H11SSW-iN and BPN-SAS3-826EL1 expander

    here's the question, and maybe it's obvious to some of you. i've got a 2U SuperMicro server with their SAS3 expander built-in. i installed an old stinky H11SSW-iN from ebay on it. (if you sold it to me, thanks!). no matter how I connect the cables, the motherboard (running a stinky old 7551P)...

    Dell Epyc 7742 - unlock

    Managed to get two 7742 at a decent price. The issue is these are Dell, not the retail version. Couldn't find a solution, online, except getting a Dell system board. Anyone managed to make these work on a Supermicro/Asrock/Gigabyte motherboard?

    GIGABYTE MZ31-AR0 REV 1.1 with Epyc Rome / Milan

    I have a GIGABYTE MZ31-AR0 rev 1.1 and I figure the only diffrence between the revisions of the board is the size of the SOP8 flash for the bigger BIOS. I bought some MX25L25645 flash chips to replace the original one and just... flash the revision 2 or 3 BIOS onto it to make Rome or even Milan...

    ASRock Rack ROMED8-2T vs Supermicro H12SSL

    Good afternoon, I am planning on putting together a new, low core EPYC system (I need the PCIe lanes more than the cores) and I am currently contemplating whether I should go with another ASRock Rack board, the ROMED8-2T, or one of the Supermicro H12SSL-* ones (probably the -I as I have a spare...

    EPYC 3rd Gen, Resizable BAR support

    Can ‘Resizable BAR’ be enabled on EPYC Milan? I use EPYC 7443P on ROMED8-2T servers for broadcast video with RTX A6000 GPUs which support resizable BAR, but have not found a way to enable it in the BIOS. Is this even possible on EPYC? I have Zen3-based Ryzen systems on X570 boards which can...

    New to AMD processors - how to buy EPYC Rome?

    I've built several Intel servers but am now looking to build my first server using an AMD proc (EPYC Rome to be specific): 1) Is there any difference between box vs tray (ie, warranty)? 2) What's the scoop on the HPE kits I see on Provantage? Can these be used on Supermicro motherboards? 3)...

    Possibly mismatching EPYC 7551 CPUs on a Supermicro H11DSi R2.0?

    Hi, I've recently ordered two EPYC 7551 (non-Dell) for a budget dual CPU build. After that I've came across this thread and particularly this post. Now I'm worried this won't run, since I'm unsure if I have matching part numbers. I've ordered everything in time, but the problem is I've messed up...

    Thoughts on building a silent home storage and virtualization hot swap tower server

    I'd like to build a more powerful home server with hot swap. (What I have now is a Xeon E3-1226 (4c/4t) and 8 GiB RAM in a first generation Fractal Design Define. The reason that I have a separate server box in the first place is that I thought storing all documents on a server and accessing...

    PCI SATA controllers and dummy unused ports on Linux

    Hi! My workplace bought a Supermicro server with a H11SSW-NT (EPYC) motherboard a year ago, and there's a small annoyance that I've been trying to find the cause for ever since: When Linux boots up and initializes the AMD FCH SATA controller, any empty drive bay results in a DUMMY ata port...
