    For GPU pass through UNRAID is going to be the easiest. Honestly anything VM related I'd recommend UNRAID, I have NEVER had any luck running VMs on FreeNAS over the last 5-6 years. Both OS have their strengths and weaknesses, and this is why I run both. For my VMs I have a box setup running UNRAID, for all my storage I run FreNAS. I even mount all of my FreeNAS data to my UNRAID VMs when needed. This also allows me to backup important data from Freenas to UNRAID to have things in 2 places.

    either way the ram thing is semi solved I have 64GB 4x of Crucial CT16G4WFD8266 on the way. Prices really have plummeted since this project started.
     
    likely wont be caching though will have a separate SSD array for the VM's and other things. If I want to use as a scratch disc RAID0 would be ideal but id need to look into a way to image it to the big array otherwise I might go RAID1 for a bit of redundcancy
     
    Ended up with a 9300-8i HBA off of ebay that i snagged for $100 which tested good.

    This was a common thing to so to the belkin nostromo and the original Microsoft ergonomic keyboards.

    The menu key is actually quite useful to those of us who navigate mostly using a keyboard. Also when coding or doing stuff in batch or via Command Line. Most of the Home key cluster is quite helpfull with all of that.

    TheProfosist got a reaction from mohajem in Intel 730 Series SSD - The New Flagship!   
    cause its not competeing with the evo in the least as that is samsungs budget offering. Its competitors are the 840 pro as well as the highest end offerings from plextor and sandisk. You could put ocz's newer offerings in there but the company is a mess at the moment. The thing is is that to get full perfomace with the 730 you really need the 480gb. Also even the 240gb is priced a good bit above the competition.

    There are a lot of them but most don't have the teensy bootloader so they are basically cheaper arduino pro micros

    TheProfosist got a reaction from SaladFingers in Skylake & Haswell-E PCIe lane misconception   
    I would agree with this.
     
    But the 8 lanes of PCI-E 2.0 are fully open unless the MB MFG adds something that isnt usually built into the chipset.
     
    40 lanes of CPU alone trumps the 16+"20". I still dont think you can call it 20 lanes because as long as all the normal stuff on the chipset is enabled there are really just 4 more than previously, enough for a M.2 drive.

    Just think about it this way. Z170 allows you to one one fast (2000 MB/s+) M.2/U.2/SATAe drive through the chipset without loosing lanes that would be dedicated to the GPU. Basically allowing to to still have SLI and this new storage. The rest of the DMI link just as before is used for all of your I/O internal and external. This also allows companies not to have to necessarily dip into the CPU PCI-E lanes for additional devices like say usb 3.0 or additional NIC's. All this additional bandwidth in the DMI link is not really directly available to the end user unlike X99/X79/X58. With the enthusiast platform you have considerably more PCI-E lanes that you can basically do whatever you want with. Even 28 lanes mean potentially 3 way SLI and a raid card or NIC's. In reality it would probably be 2 way and and additional device like that and at least 2-4 lanes would be grabbed for additional onboard devices like usb 3.1 and NIC's or other devices.

    You may be interested in cherry ml rather than cherry MX. But otherwise no cherry MX is a type of switch that has a longer throw than chiclet keyboards.

    The KMAC Happy is by far my favorite 60% board. They are small they must have programmability.
