  1. Alright! I added the list of the parts (just look at the last reply and you'll see where it says: "EDIT")
  2. Alright. ^^ just give me a few minutes and I will post it on pcpartpicker. EDIT: https://pcpartpicker.com/user/Bendy_BSD/saved/wm4YTW
  3. Well, the reason for the tesla is because I do plan to have reactos as the vms to utilize the hardware so that it has dedicated video acceleration and it is powerful enough to where gaming is an option. I have a few friends. And the three friends that I have I know them in real life and they love to game like I do. They have their own gaming machines but they're a little heavy and take up space for our LAN parties so what I decided to do is just build one physical machine with vms that have dedicated hardware allocated to them so all they have to do is remote-in and log into the reactos vms via steam-in home streaming and they can use their laptops (cheapo or decent) with a hardwired connection. It saves space and physical effort. I can't blame them, hell, my server is a little heaver than their gaming rigs but if I only have to move one heavy machine than all 4-7 (some of them have dedicated stream boxes that transcode their game footage on the fly but no need in doing that when there is software that can relay data to twitch and youtube concurrently right? :)) you know what I mean? Plus, in the event where their gaming rigs are down for whatever catastrophic reason, I can give them a vpn profile to where they can remotely login and still game without worries. Redundancy and convenience reasons (the tl;dr of this explanation.) that and reactos is easy to get than having to spill out more cash to get license keys for windows home editions... they rack up quick if I get three. >.> And reactos (even though it's alpha software) is lightweight and won't be resource heavy while active on the hypervisor. As for the quadros... well, not enough pci-e slots available. I only have 6 slots to work with: x4 - usb 3.0 card x16 dual port sfp+ nic (10gb) x16 dual port mini SAS controller. x16 amd firepro r5000 2gb x16 tesla k80 24gb PCI - none.
  4. gotcha. Thank you so much man. And the BMC & BIOS firmware can be found on the Asrock Website right? (Well, the Rack site not the regular consumer site.)
  5. is that before or after applying any bios/BMC updates? I'm still using the firmware that was flashed straight from the factory (both stock bmc and bios).
  6. I'll think on that. Really? Nice. I was curious if you had by any chance tinkered around with the IPMI management? I tried to get the IPMI set up to where it is supposed to use the dedicated Realtek port rather than the failover port on the intel network controller. Segmentation of network traffic I mean. It would be handy to have IPMI but not when it's on the same network as anything else, if my entire network was compromised and that IPMI function was exposed to the LAN as everything else is, one second for a deviant to rootkit the BMC and I'm totally screwed. y'know what I mean? So out of security concerns I completely disabled the BMC management and disabled the BMC network interfaces.
  7. Hypervisor: Proxmox VE 6.0+ (64bit) Tesla ---> NVIDIA Tesla k80 24GB VRAM Motherboard: Asrock EP2C602-4L/D16 Reason for using the E5-2650s rather than later models within LGA2011 sockets: Lower power consumption; power effecient, less to pay for electrical bill. XP But I can see where you're coming from with that. ReactOS is an open source alternative to windows. And it will run windows drivers including executables.
  8. Q: What would you guys do with 32 threads of processing cores, VT-X + VT-D enabled, and 32GB of RAM to use? I ask because I initially planned to do the following but I wasn't sure if I'm underutilizing it or overutilizing it: Windows 10 Pro 64 bit + PCI-Passthrough: NVIDIA Tesla vGPU, Marvell On-board RAID Controller, USB 3.0 card (first controller) FreeNAS 64 bit + PCI-Passthrough: SAS controller in IT mode Windows 10 Home 64 bit + PCI-Passthrough: GTX 1660 (NVIDIA), USB 3.0 card (second controller) ReactOS vms (3) + PCI-Passthrough: NVIDIA Tesla vGPU Host OS - Proxmox VE 6.0+ PfSense + PCI-Passthrough: onboard network controllers (intel quad port), dual port 10Gb SFP+ NIC. (four cores per vm) I'm honestly just curious because I'm kind of rethinking this entire thing, I'm not sure if I'm putting the hardware to good use.
  9. *sigh* I feel like a complete IDIOT right now... So, if I had to assume this correctly, there's a reason behind the following files the DD-WRT website lists. factory-to-dd-wrt.chk upgrade.bin the .chk file is there just to get into the os to upgrade to the binary. A "live image" if you will. and the .bin file is the full installation file more or less? If so, then just look at the image at the top for context of what my reaction is. I'm also terribly sorry for this, this is my fault for not knowing about it earlier. >~< My punishment now is to figure out how to go from tomato to dd-wrt. XP
  10. I wasn't doing anything. I didn't unplug it while it was flashing itself, I didn't change any settings while it was flashing, I literally let it do it's flashing with no possibility of interruption. too bad there isn't memtest86 for routers. (bad joke I know. But, I'm kinda curious if bad RAM on a router would do it?)
