    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...

    Low Profile Ram (X399 Phantom Gaming 6) (1950X)

    I working on a 1950X threadripper build that will be housed in a 4U Rosewill RSV-L4500. The motherboard in question is the X399 Phantom Gaming 6. (I still don't know why gaming is in the title of a workstation board) This is more of a workstation build than a server. Its going in a rack with my...

    RAID0 on motherboard's SATA not as fast as expected

    Hi. Forgive the newbie question! I have an 8 x 12TB disk Zfs RAID0 array running on the motherboard's SATA connectors on an AMD X399 motherboard. Read speeds top out at about 800 MB/sec. This is slower than I expected. Each disk can sustain over 200 MB/sec so the RAID0 array should, in theory...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    Over the labor day weekend I have been working on a new project: building a new workstation. This is the first time in years that I will be moving to a single socket system. For this edition, AMD Threadripper. I think it is important that if I am going to publicly recommend AMD products, that I...

    Getting ready for a threadripper build, undecided about mobo and RAM

    I recently purchased a Threadripper 1950X, which I intend to use to run a ZFS-based, multi-headed, multi-OS rig (Probably using Proxmox, but I plan to experiment with FreeNAS+Bhyve and maybe ESXi). However, I am currently undecided about the motherboard and memory. I would really like to use...
