  1. Ah yes, I have seen exact render times in blender cycles between centos7 bare bore install and centos7 docker image. So yes
  2. LXD can also use vm images, that's why I initially talked about it. Anyway can LXC containers use host directories, host gpu and display gui to host display? I might try it.
  3. I know this method isn't really considered the docker way but it gives me native performance in apps that hit cpu, sometimes gpu and memory hard without overhead of vm"s or the need to use gpu passthrough. If say I was running solidworks then yeah I'd use vm with gpu passthrough.
  4. Hello, So for a few months I have been using CentOS 7 to run my hpc applications as a learning exercise due to covid (learning new software and validating many cases). I wanted to use CentOS 7 as a daily OS but I realized it might be harder because I needed to have work arounds for some of the OpenSource applications that require newer dependencies. I found out about docker/moby/podman and decided to use it for applications I need CentOS for. And here we are, native performance of all my commercial software running in a systemd enabled CentOS7 environment running on th
  5. The 4.5Ghz would be a dream tbh. Also only reason they suggested 64GB is because certain mesh files can easily exceed 32GB of ram. If i do upgrade ram, ill wait on a sale. Hey thanks for the detail. Those values, they seem to be for Broadwell-E, can they work for Haswell-E? I am up in the Canada land I can only find chinese resellers for the 6950x and they cost roughly $500 CDN plus import cost. Also I tried the gamer overclock profile on my rampage board, it put me to 4.4Ghz and it booted windows well, however the voltage of 1.36 vcore scared me. I tried to reset to default and
  6. So great news, finally installed the new cooler: Im getting a stable 28c idle and a 40c-50c full load at stock. What sort of overclocks should I try? In terms of stock performance, atleast for cfd and rendering my 5960x crushes the 7700HQ laptop both in windows and linux vm. Also in terms of future upgrades, what sort of gpu should I go for that won't bottleneck me? I have a 1000W Gold PSU. Also in CFD specific forum/community I was adviced to buy 64GB (4x16GB DDR4-3200 CL16), how well would that work for x99? Currently my ram (rated for 2133Mhz) only runs at 1566Mhz
  7. I would love some clarification on that. Say if I use fedora 32 as my host. And I run a centOS KVM, so would the centOS KVM get all the resources when I run an Ansys Simulation (including CUDA)? Yeah idk tbh, if Ansys worked on other distro, I would use that tbh.
  8. You know that is something I can play around with, no doubt KVM will give better performance then what I am getting in VMWare. However CFD loves all the core's and all the ram, so for the cases I run I have to see if they run okay with only 7 out of the 8 full cores. And okay, since I have most third party repo enabled, installing nvidia driver should be okay. Thanks for your replies. I really enjoyed both Fedora and Manjaro, but most of these commercial computing applications are very strict on supported linux OS'es. I do have most of the thirdparty repo enabled a
  9. This is what I was thinking, If I can get away with a few upgrades without changing out mobo and cpu, would be optimal for me at this moment.
  10. Hopefully the next release of Ansys supports rhel/centos8. Right now most if not all commercial packages I am learning and using for validation projects seem to just work with centos 7.7 out of the box, centos 8 has the same errors as fedora when I tested. How easy is it to upgrade between the 2 version? I'll definitely upgrade when they officially support it. Are there any considerations if I am running a nvidia card like a 9 series for cuda? And are there any special considerations based on type of bios the rampage 5 comes with? I already use the semi latest kernel (5.X) on my c
  11. Thanks for the the tip, I already tried fedora, but ansys doesn't support it, to much work around and errors. Most commercial grade software just plain work on rhel/centOS. That's is why I am inclined to use CentOS. I have had no issues running latest cmake, scilab, blender and paraview at all. Have you used CentOS as daily before?
  12. Hello everyone, Hope everyone is doing well! I have been playing with Linux as a hobby and a learning experience for a while now! Even more so thanks to the pandemic. I have been using it in a VM on my laptop (since desktop was out of commission until now). I have used Ubuntu, PopOS, Manjaro, Fedora, OpenSUSE and now CentOS 7. I have gotten used to most of there package management system and the bash commands. I have learning to compile and build from source as well. Recently I have been doing lots of blender rendering, CAD, paraview and running cfd validations, fea and other numbe
  13. Hello Everyone, I hope everyone is staying safe and things are going well during this pandemic. So to start things off, about a few months ago (might even be a year ago?) I posted a thread about my Kraken X61 AIO pump being broken. Due to being out of warranty I never replaced it and been using my Asus Strix Laptop (i7 7700HQ+GTX 1060). Fast forward to now, a couple of my friends surprised me with the newish Kraken X63 AIO cooler. So that means I get to use my desktop again (i7 Rampage 5+5960X+GTX 970+ 16GB DDR4 RAM 2133Mhz). I build this rig when I was in uni in 2014 for gaming an
  14. So after waiting awhile, it def seems something is wrong with the pump, putting the pump header into the CPU_Opt header causes the pump to make atrocious sounds and the temp stabilizes but then it just keeps getting super hot, while using cpu_fan the pump makes normal noises. I even left the pc off for awhile to make sure its not a bubble issue. I called nzxt but my warrenty is out and now given the economic status, I might be sol…
  15. The pump head is vibrating however the pump head and the pipe leading to it gets hot to the touch, everywhere else feels look warm, rad fans however is exhausting hot air. Could my CPU_Fan header die to? Because I’m wondering how the pump died, can me plugging in the 3pin into the wrong 3 pin out of the 4pin cpu fan header cause this ? My Asus board doesn't have a dedicated pump header and my CPU throttles and then causes bsod so I cant check a pump rpm reading either. Also i noticed something, if I unplug my AIO pump header from CPU_FAN and plug into CPU_OPT the the
