Description

This PC slowly replaced my old computer, I first started with the core parts (ram, mobo and CPU) and then moved to a new GPU, new case, new cooling system and new storage.

This machine is mostly for productivity, but I also play games.

I should note that I use two GPUs, but this site doesn't allow me to list them both, I use a Vega 56, which is assigned to windows, and a RX 580, which is assigned to Arch, this is because I run windows inside linux and play games on it.

Do you still have reset issues when shutting down the VM with the Vega 56?

Also, don't get Ryzen 3000 just yet until BIOS updates sort out the rdrand issue with systemd.

Yes, the vega reset issues are still present unfortunately.

It does boot very fast so I don't really think it's a big issue.

If you don't mind me asking questions, what hypervisor (the virtualization management software you use for GPU passthrough) do you use? VMware's ESXi or Proxmox? Also, did you install it on the SATA SSD or the NVME SSD? I intend to this kind of stuff in the near future. Thanks!

I use the Linux kernel as my hypervisor through KVM, I try to avoid commercial solutions when possible.

I installed windows on the SATA SSD by passing through the whole drive, this means that if needed, I can boot to windows normally by switching the initial display device to the vega.

Work on your cable management then post more pictures. :D

bwoah the only real issues I can see is the pump cable being on the way, and maybe the PCIe power connector, but not much more.
