Yes, the specific board linked in the OP can take a regular consumer PSU. I'm using a Corsair ATX supply (AX760i) on mine. But as others have noted, there's also multiple variants that have non-standard connectors. Unlike some of the more common hardware vendor's naming schemes, the difference in the naming on these Fujitsu boards can be a single letter or number at/near the end of the name. So, if you buy something from another vendor/Ebay listing, you'll want to take a close look at the photos.Hold up, I'm confused based on page 1. Does a regular consumer PSU work for this board?
I've got dual GPU running on mine. Ubuntu as main OS/host and Windows 10 in a VM, with passthrough on the GPU, an NVMe drive and USB (via a USB add in card). Of note though is that the only PCIe slot that supports bifurcation is one of the two slots that are x16 electrically (Slot 3). So you can't have two GPUs in x16 slots and install a multiple drive NVMe card at the same time. I've got my GPUs in the x16 slots and the NVMe drives in single drive adapters plugged into the slots that are x4 electrically. It takes up a lot of slots, but worked for me as I didn't need slots for any network or other add-in cards.I'm in for one. Big fan of the E5-v4 and the x16 layout will accommodate most dual GPU. Dug around and got the manuals and links to the drivers and what not.
Not anything demanding. I've got a low end Quadro P620 passed through to windows for productivity, but it works OK for light gaming. I understand that KVM/QEMU with device passthrough has a minimal performance impact, and lots of folks play AAA Games (with an appropriately beefy GPU) without much issue.
I figured out that the BUP file is actually a zip file. You can rename the file and extract the contents. One of the files inside is a bios image file with extension UPD.Rename to file BUP it’s probably the same as rom just different for this board. I had same problem on my EVGA board file type didn’t match. Renaming file worked fine. But maybe it won’t work... doesn’t hurt to try.
I was able to boot from an NVMe on PCIe adapters in both Linux and Windows. Both with single drive adapters, and from a two drive Supermicro AOC-SLG3-2M2 card in slot 3 with bifurcation set.I just picked up this board and a E5-2680V4 to replace/upgrade my UNRAID box that was running dual 2670 V1's from the great 2670 liquidation years ago. Thinking about picking up another for my main workstation. Can I boot from NVME on a PCIE card in Windows/Linux? Is there a reasonably priced processor that you would recommend for workstation duties (no major multicore workflows on my workstation, so clock cycles will be more important than core count) Thank you
I've got an E5-2680v4 in mine with 4 x 16GB SK Hynix HMA42GR7MFR4N-TF ECC RDIMM, but I also tested it with 4 x 16GB M393A2G40DB0-CPB ECC RDIMM (both of these are on the compatible memory list, but are on the slow end of the range)Would the E5-2680v4 and this motherboard support ECC memory?
Thanks for pointing that out. I have fixed that data type and a few others as well.One (minor) observation: Column T (TDP) format seems to be set as Alphanumeric instead of Numeric, so everything that begins with "1" comes first in an ascending sort, followed by "2" etc...
That type of VRM MOSFET is designed to dissipate most of its heat through the motherboard strata and only a small amount via the metallic covers. Since you can't overclock, that's supposed to be enough, which is why there's no heatsink. YMMV of course.The CPU VRM components have no heat sink at all.
Yeah, most of them are designed to do that way and the VRM's are able to operate at very high temperatures. But most board vendors include at least a small heatsink for the VRM's, like the SuperMicro X10SRLF small heat sink on the mosfets.That type of VRM MOSFET is designed to dissipate most of its heat through the motherboard strata and only a small amount via the metallic covers.
