    Retailer/supplier recommendations/lists

    Hi! So having come to building a small home server/lab for some basic things, and reading a lot online, I'm finding it hard to find places to shop for primarily server spec/designated parts. My usual friends (in the UK) ebuyer/scan don't really have server parts - I'm finding motherboards...

    EPYCD8-2T Serious issues

    Hi mates. I think that my EPYCD8-2T failed on me (at the worst moment, of course). My plight started 2 days ago, when I added the fourth GPU.
