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: -- 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?

Not that you need PCI-e 4 support with older hardware
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.
