  1. ok new poster here. i also posted this query in motherboards forum. i hope thats ok! long story short, ive been wanting to try an unraid build ever since i watched the ltt "2 gamers 1 cpu" video and i finally have the opportunity: i recently found some very reasonable deals on 6950x cpus on ebay and have decided to upgrade my main system from 5960x. so, rather than have the old cpu go to waste, i figure nows my chance to explore virtualization. ive laid out my planned build on pcpartpicker and mostly settled on the evga x99 micro2 board because it has enough space between the first two pcie slots to house a short pcie riser cable to fit my 1080ti gpus (pass through for each vm) with no-frills single slot gpu for unraid host in the first slot. heres my current build info: PCPartPicker Part List Type Item Price CPU Intel Core i7-5960X 3 GHz 8-Core Processor Purchased CPU Cooler Noctua NH-D15 CHROMAX.BLACK 82.52 CFM CPU Cooler Motherboard EVGA Micro 2 Micro ATX LGA2011-3 Motherboard $250.00 Memory Kingston HyperX Predator 32 GB (4 x 8 GB) DDR4-2400 CL12 Memory Purchased For $0.00 Storage Samsung 860 Evo 500 GB 2.5" Solid State Drive Purchased For $0.00 Storage Samsung 860 Evo 500 GB 2.5" Solid State Drive $69.00 @ Amazon Storage Samsung 860 Evo 500 GB 2.5" Solid State Drive $69.00 @ Amazon Storage Western Digital Black 4 TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive $149.99 @ Amazon Storage Western Digital Black 4 TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive $149.99 @ Amazon Video Card EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti 11 GB FTW3 HYBRID GAMING Video Card (2-Way SLI) Purchased For $0.00 Video Card EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti 11 GB FTW3 HYBRID GAMING Video Card (2-Way SLI) Purchased For $0.00 Case Thermaltake Core V21 MicroATX Mini Tower Case $69.98 @ Amazon Power Supply EVGA SuperNOVA 1000 P2 1000 W 80+ Platinum Certified Fully Modular ATX Power Supply Purchased For $0.00 Prices include shipping, taxes, rebates, and discounts Total $757.96 Generated by PCPartPicker 2020-09-24 00:10 EDT-0400 most of the components (cpu, gpus, psu, ram, etc) are from my main pc (plan to upgrade gpu to 3090 or 3090ti when they are available) so i just need motherboard, case and a few harddrives. my main question for this post is: does anyone know if this motherboard (evga x99 micro2) supports vt-d? ive seen evidence that it has vt-x but vt-d is crucial for unraid virtualization to work. has anyone else used this board for unraid? im pretty sure the asus x99m ws would work except for not having enough space for the riser card (damn you: pcie x1 slot!) but ive been scouring the internet and various manuals to find my answer to no avail. if anyone has info (or better yet, experience) please let me know!!
