  1. Call for Coders 2017

    @slick Is floatplane still hiring?
  2. all pcie cards and slots pci-e gen 2 or newer are all compatible with each other. Any card will work in any slot and they will communicate and self configure to use the newest protocol and highest bandwidth available. The only exception to this is that some short (x1, x4, x8) slots have a backstop on them that won't allow larger (x16) cards to fit, but electrically they are compatible and if you cut away that backstop it will work.
  3. AMD Ryzen 2 Pinnacle Ridge 12nm CPUs

    So lower power consumption and more OC headroom? (albeit probably minor on both) Sounds good.
  4. You don't need to post with no gpu. Your system has a gpu. if you're launching a vm, you can easily give it emulated graphics, it just won't be able to play games.
  5. Integrated graphics are not just something the cpu emulates or creates on the fly, it is a small, low power gpu built into the cpu. Ryzen does not have this. You will need a second gpu if you want to use ryzen. CPUs that do have integrated graphics are intel chips and AMD APUs.
  6. My first build

    I disabled hyperthreading because it boosts single thread performance specifically for KVM backed vms. That does not mean it will help if you're just running windows. With 32 threads available it's no big deal for Windows to make sure that the sister thread for whatever cpuz etc is running on to sit idle, in which case you'll get the same performance as without hyperthreading. When you're multitasking though but still want the best single thread performance you can get, and you're limited more in cores (split between vms), disabling hyperthreading can help some. I'm running linux on the base machine, and have no need for sleep or hibernation. The system is basically on 24/7 and only the VMs get shutdown. Since starting those doesn't involve long post times and their virtual disks are on ssds, starting the vm is just as fast as resuming, so I just shut them down.
  7. Ryzen threadripper Build { Solved }

    You can always rma the motherboard. Do you have an older low end gpu you can try in it, or can you get to bios with no gpu? (I don't think that's possible)
  8. Ryzen threadripper Build { Solved }

    Looks like it's an issue with the motherboards Bios and initializing the gpu. See if there's a new bios version for the motherboard you can flash.
  9. Ryzen threadripper Build { Solved }

    Your error code is not SP upside down or 5b "D5 No Space for Legacy Option ROM initialization."
  10. Ryzen threadripper Build { Solved }

    Here's the manual for your board: https://www.gigabyte.com/Motherboard/X399-AORUS-Gaming-7-rev-10#support-manual
  11. Ryzen threadripper Build { Solved }

    ... You mean 5b? An upside down P is a b...
  12. Ryzen threadripper Build { Solved }

    Did you try to look up the error in the manual?
  13. My first build

    I haven't tried the 1060 before, but I was able to stream from the 1070 vm to my laptop perfectly fine. I did that when I first tested the system before I modded the power supplies so I could play in a separate room to avoid all the noise...
  14. My first build

    Np. I think the 1070 goes pretty well with this system at 1440p. Only reason I'd consider an 1080 is if you've got a 4k monitor. If you're only doing 1080p, 1060 is probably all you need. Each of those can do 60+ fps at their respective resolutions (well maybe not the 4k), and the e5 cpus seem to be able to keep up with that just fine.
