Now to find 128GB of ECC DDR4-3200 and an AM4 motherboard with IPMI...

X570 based or for Threadripper? unless you snagged a Insanely cheap EPYC processor

Looking at asrock rack, didn't realize the sold boards based off of B550
And I guess the 5800X3d isn't the only one with V-Cache??

" Supports AMD EPYC™ 7003 (with AMD 3D V-Cache™ Technology*)"

X470, B550, or X570, I want to reuse the 3900X to upgrade my Proxmox server. I like having IPMI on the Supermicro board I use in that box now, but getting 2 more physical cores and DDR4 would make my VMs run like absolute monsters. Kind of want it to have the shitty integrated Matrox display adapter so I don't have to use any ports on the Quadro for display output. I don't have any plans to use PCIe 4.0 -- I have a pair of PCIe 3.0 NVMe drives but those are literally only because I'm too impatient for apt-get on mechanical disks. I also want to replace the two dual-port NICs with a single quad-port NIC so I can keep using the management interface for management only.

<edit> This should work: https://www.asrockrack.com/general/produ...ifications -- I'm comfortable using zfs with spinning disks in the current box for storage. </edit>

Yeah I was looking at the same board, odd that the X570 doesn't have a board that supports 128 gig's. unless I read it wrong.
The X570 varient of that board perhaps?
https://www.asrockrack.com/general/produ...ifications

Not that you need PCI-e 4 support with older hardware
and https://www.newegg.com/asrock-rack-x470d...13-140-034
10 gig ports if you happen to need it.

Max capacity per DIMM On that X570 board is 32GB, so it does take 128. Not going to make any moves yet, though, as I'd like to install the other stuff first.

Looking at all these boards kinda make me wanna set up a quick and dirty home sever for backups and video streaming. Seeing as Large format mechanical drives are getting cheaper.

They are, but rebuilding failed huge RAIDs isn't getting any less scary. The zfs in my Proxmox server has four 8TB spinners, and my Synology has two 8TB and two 10TB drives, and they all scare the fuck out of me. I'd love to replace them all with SSDs but I can't fuckin afford 15.36TB drives.

ETA of the 5900X and 6750 XT is tomorrow. Will be nice to evict the nVidia drivers from my machine once and for all Smile I'll need to remove GreenWithEnvy as well, but ultimately I didn't really use it so I won't miss it. If I need anything I can just switch to CoreCtrl.

You can send your 2070 my way to replace my aging RX 580 Wink

So far so good, but keep in mind I'm playing on Pop!_OS 22.04 with Steam+Proton, so my experience may be worse in some games than it would be under Windows. 

The 2070 was stuttering a bit in Powerwash Simulator every couple minutes, but a 20-minute session was smooth as silk with the 6750XT, without changing any settings. Don't know if this is down to the CPU or GPU upgrade, though -- and PWS is an Early Access game so it's not particularly well-optimized for Windows yet, let alone for Proton. 

BL3 was running well on the 2070, but it felt much smoother on the 6750XT. The CPU chopped the load times in half, both before and during the game (it builds the Vulkan shaders when you click "play" in Steam). Again, didn't change settings. I'll be playing more BL3 with it tonight, I think ... though I might fire up Horizon Zero Dawn for a few minutes since that felt noticeably slower on Linux than on Windows. 

At some point I'll need to fire up Mass Effect again. I had it installed as a Steam app and was running it in Proton before, but I elected to install it it through Lutris this time. There was quite a bit of hitching in ME3 when I was playing through Armax Arsenal Arena as a test under EndeavourOS, but I didn't know if that was down to GPU or the fact that I was launching Mass Effect 3 through Origin through Steam. 

The one "oops" I ran into was that the PCI Express power cable is just short enough to not make it to the connectors on the card. The card is smaller in every dimension than the 2070 was, so I had to run the cable very visibly through the case, rather than through the cable management channels behind the motherboard. I want to use something like the SeaSonic Connect power supply, but it just won't fit in the Fractal Torrent ... so Corsair HX850 Platinum it is. Its PCI Express cables are considerably longer than the ones that came with my Thermaltake 750W something-or-other.

So Seeing Jayztwocents latest video make me want to set up a 7 or 10" panel for stats inside the 5000D. Right Now I have the RGB off, but I run it when I feel like it with some form of Decent Rainbow puke....

Yeah that was pretty cool Smile I saw GN's video of that weird In-Win case, but was more intrigued by Steve's mention of the Alice. Looks like a laundry hamper, as he said, but ... did he actually review it at one point?
