    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...

    Monero XMR CPU hashrates 2021

    Hi, I'm looking for a decent setup for my 1st upcoming Monero mining rig (Dual Epyc etc), but the results I've gathered are based on Google results from 2018-2020 and they vary - a lot! My budget is around 1000-1400€. Patrick's last thread about Monero is from year 2018 and much have changed...

    Supermicro H12SSL and SAS storage options

    Hi all Let me start out be saying that this is my first server build and I'm pretty overwhelmed by the storage options available on these boards. I guess I'm more of a software guy and could use some help. :) I'm building an AMD EPYC server for homelab use. It'll be running Proxmox so its...

    EU SOLD Repaired Supermicro H11DSi (NT) Rev2

    Sold are two Supermicro Epyc SP3 Motherboards. A H11DSi and one H11DSi-NT. Both are revision 2 and have been repaired by me. The DSi had multiple Pins bent in both sockets while the NT presumably had a transistor, labeled Q1, ripped away near the BMC, preventing POST. Specifically tested and...

    AMD Epyc 7502 (ES-04) + Asrock ROMED8-2T + Nemix ECC RDIMM - RAM not recognized

    Motherboard and ram(8x16GB DDR4 NEMIX 3200MHz Registered 2Rx8) are brand new. BIOS is updated to the latest v1.30. All dimms get recognized as 0GB even though the temperature reporting seems to work. Haven't contacted AsRock support yet, but just realised that I managed to get pretty much the...

    ConnectX-3 card not detected in Asrock EPYCD8-2T

    I picked up a nearly-new Epyc motherboard through the forums a few days ago, and for some reason it's not picking up my ConnectX-3 card at all (single port, 10GbE, I believe MCX311A-XCAT). I've tried multiple slots, and it's neither included in the IPMI inventory nor in lspci output, and there's...

    Used EPYC 7601 post code 78

    Hey, So I've got a supermicro H11DSI-NT, got two different epyc 7601s from ebay from 2 different vendors that looked somewhat reputable. Both are giving me post code 78. Fans spinning, but nothing booting, no video, IPMI not even showing correct hardware info. Exact same behavior for both CPUs...

    Cooling VRM on Epyc server board in a consumer case

    I'm considering a 7302p on an Asrock rack ROMED8-2T or Asrock rack EPYCD8-2T motherboard for my new ATX tower workstation for simulation work. The workstation will regularly need to run experiments for 24-48 hours all-core. Both those boards have a tiny little heatsink on the VRM (see pic)...

    Threadripper or EPYC for a gentoo workstation?

    I've been planning for a new computer build for a couple months now. With the new 3990x and EPYC server processors launching, I've been wanting to move away from my current X299 build as my chip has been really tough to cool and my needs have shifted. With this, I've kind of planned out two...

    Asus KNPA-U16 BIOS update Naples->Rome

    I got an Asus KNPA-U16 today for my Rome Epyc processor. I'm able to power it on and get the iKVM going (and log in via the maintenance Ethernet port), but the board does not POST. It has the Naples 902 BIOS on it. There's a BIOS and SOP for updating on the Asus website, but it involves using...

    Finally: Overclocking EPYC Rome ES

    In November of 2019 I first got my hands on an AMD EPYC Naples engineering sample. I thought it was really cool you could overclock 32-cores for a lot cheaper than a 2990WX and achieve mostly the same performance. Once I saw that there were next-generation EPYC Rome engineering samples floating...
