This is kind of insane you were able to fit a SSI EEB mobo in a Air 540. +1
Wow, Steve W. over at Hardware Unboxed will love this!
Maybe go all the way and make it a Hardware Unboxed themed PC?
Maybe LxQt as the Desktop Environment? That should be lightweight enough to run on the Intel iGPU.
Did I hear Fedora?
sudo dnf install @virtualization
Passthrough your Windows M.2 and use ACS to separate your iGPU and primary GPU. You can forgo dual boot and do "duel boot" (Using your Windows install in a GPU Passthrough VM)
No need to digitize it anytime soon, just be careful of the condition of the belts in the VTRs.
I saw you did use coreprio but you still didn't like the IPC, which is understandable. Also hoping Threadripper 3 fixes that.
This isn't an ideal situation because there's no dust filtration on the holes and you're fully relying on negative pressure to cool the system.
You're relying on negative pressure to feed the GPU air, and unfortunately the H200 does not have fine mesh everywhere to prevent dust from being sucked in. Negative pressure attracts dust while positive pressure repels dust.
The front fans with the mesh in front of it is designed to intake air and prevent dust from accumulating.
There are enough fan headers on the B450-I once you put the front 2 fans on a PWM fan splitter cable. I personally don't recommend using the fan headers on the GPU because they only turn on when the GPU is under load, only when Windows is running GPU Tweak II, and would remain off when your CPU is under load, meaning the CPU could get quite toasty.
I'd highly advise you get a PWM fan splitter cable, hook that up to the "pump" header on the B450-I, hook the 2 ends of the splitter to the front fans, and flip the front fans to intake. All your fans are in exhaust right now with zero intake.
Negative pressure sounds like a good idea with this case, but true airflow rather than relying on negative pressure might just bring your temps down.
Just gonna say this right now, positive pressure is more effective for airflow than using negative pressure to draw away heat. Negative pressure just attracts dust.
Let's once again pay respects for Casela...
You've been featured in a Gamers Nexus video on the SMA8!
You're trying to run a RTX card with no supported open source drivers. Nouveau is trash. Boot with "nomodeset" by pressing "e" when selecting an option from the Live CD/USB boot menu, then adding "nomodeset" before "quiet splash" and pressing "Ctrl+X" to boot.
Desktop looking sweet! You know what would make it better?
You mean the Tiger from Sly Cooper 4?
And remember, just because people like TechPowerUp, Joker Productions and Tech YES City actively promote and hint at them, doesn't make them any more legitimate. These sites in fact operate illegally, doing MANY consistent name changes before concrete legal action can be taken.
They are strictly forbidden on this site.
Not really when considering x264 at "slow" for Twitch. x264 already is extremely stressful and for 1080p FPS streamers, it's no faster than "medium" x264 preset or bust.
No, the cover just above the drive cage, which is the only way to take the drive cage out. It's in the manual about how to remove the drive cage in the lower area.
Make a Threadripper/9700K Dual PC with a Avermedia 4K HDR capture card and 1660 Ti on the 2950X Threadripper system, and a RTX 2080 on the 9700K ITX system.
That would be the ultimate streaming dual system setup.
You can take out the drive cage at the bottom of the Meshify since you only run a M.2 SSD, and put the intake fan there after you remove the drive cage cover on the PSU shroud and the drive cage itself. There's ultra-fine dust filters there on that fan position so you won't be losing any dust filtering.
You can also forgo the mesh filter for the top if all the remaining fans there are exhaust.
Caselabs + Watercool is a combo made in heaven!
I smell a feature.
Considering the space constraint inside the Node 202, it's a smart decision to have non-K OC parts. +1
I think you got a bit of a problem with all the fans exhausting creating a ton of negative pressure. Negative pressure sucks in dust from any crevice in the case. This is not beneficial to run.
Personally, I would flip the front fans to intake, and reposition the 2 fans on the side bracket down to the bottom fan bracket to give the GPU airflow as intake.
There's no need for the LED intake fan on the top right. Your exhaust will be sucked back into the case from that fan and it's better to have as much intake in the front as possible with a Meshify C.
I'm more intrigued by the DVCPRO and BETACAM decks you have below your PC...
Have you tried Cinebench R20 yet?
Did you replace the stock dust filters on the O11 Air? The stock ones restrict too much airflow. Replacing them with Silverstone Ultra Fine dust filters may be something to improve airflow.
Are you the elusive "Banksy?" Because this would totally be the PC that Banksy uses as their daily driver!
Extremely well done! Give this guy a feature, please!
It's also not using an Asetek pump but a CoolIT pump which I believe has a higher flow rate if I'm not mistaken.
KDE is the only one that has worked with NVIDIA FreeSync so far for me. It has a composition switch (Shift+Alt+F12 to turn on and off composition) while other DEs bury that option somewhere or make it impossible to turn off composition at will. (Muffin from Cinnamon and Linux Mint always has composition on)
If your dad has an inner geek, buy him an unRAID license. He'll soon know he can consolidate most of his stuff into a single machine!
Ooh, got bit with that on a Gigabyte board only supporting Ivy Bridge-E and not Ivy Bridge-EP. Wasted $280 on that one, cost me $650 to replace the Ivy Bridge-EP Xeon with a 4960X.
Anything above 1.4 will kill the chip in a year. The C2 revision Sandy Bridge-EP processors degrade FAST.
I so wish I got the same stuff that you did to experiment with Linux GPU passthrough.
Speaking of that, you could run their Windows OS on a unRAID VM and do a Plex server at the same time on this thing!
Be careful of VRM temperatures on the Huanan once you start unlocked multiplier overclocking. Also, it's not a X79 chipset but a Z77 chipset hacked to make work with X79.
Once you get the 1650, DON'T exceed 1.4V Vcore or your chip will only last for 11 months before dying (First hand experience with that here) also, VTT should be below 1.175 and VCCSA should be below 1.06V.
Have you considered the Radeon VII for stuff like Solidworks and etc?
Have you been able to update your Kernel and Mesa to enable FreeSync? It does require the most bleeding edge Kernel and Mesa, but your monitor with low framerate compensation should I believe deliver a smoother experience than if the Freesync range was lower, like many 4K Freesync monitors currently have issues with framerate range.
Eyy, I have that same Rick proping up my GPU as well!
May want to place the wireless antenna outside the case as signals would be able to get to the antenna instead of being blocked by the chassis.
I have that same GPU BTW. Works great for Hackintosh. Also works with CUDA in Premiere CC and Davinci Resolve on OSX.
Have you tried how Ryzen fairs with Premiere CC?
BIG no go on that one. The VIA controller fails once IOMMU is engaged, and the Fresco Logic controller has a serious reset bug.
Get a card using the uPD720202 from Renesas. Do not get a card using a PLX because that lumps together the IOMMU groups of the onboard chips. Get separate x1 cards and bifurcate rather than use PCI-E Muxing.
You will want to use direct lanes from the CPU as well, because going through the chipset on X470/B450 will require ACS anyways.
Since you are doing unRAID, I would invest in a few USB 3.0 controllers. This one from Startech is great:
Just remember to do some ACS if you have multiple of the same card in the system.
Wendell would be proud. You're using Htop!
Just be sure to configure the rest of your network to block hard coded DNS requests (like from Google devices and apps) so that your PiHole gets used for those devices.
I personally smell a feature. This machine managed to mix soft tubing and hard tubing so well!
Also, Watercool (the company) is awesome!
That slot is electrically x8, but physically x16. The concern is more for airflow though.
The fan in the top middle exhausting outward might steal airflow away for the AIO. I understand why you might want to have an additional one for GPU exhaust, but it would help the airflow patterns in the case if you only had 2 intakes and the AIO exhausting. Making the AIO push-pull with that fan is what I would do.
Decent part choices, just needs more intake fans. Some HP-12s from Fractal would work in the front.
No problem! You can get a Xeon E5-1680 V2 and do a slight overclock on it with this board and BIOS version F7. It's worth a shot if you were looking for an upgrade without switching motherboards. 1680 V2 is 8 cores, 16 threads.
Yup, x16 for both GPUs, x4 for the Decklink Mini Recorder 4K, x1 for the USB 3.0 controller, plus all the onboard devices, which work for VFIO (minus the VIA USB 3.0 controller, which I disable whenever I run VFIO/QEMU/KVM)
+9001 for use of a M.2 riser for the Vive Wireless Adapter. Another +9001 for doing this in an ITX case!
If your X79-UP4 is revision 1.1, you can replace that 4960X with a E5-1660 V2 or E5-1680 V2 Xeon. (BTW, they're overclockable with unlocked multipliers)
If it's revision 1.0, 4960X is the best you can go.
Good choice for the capture card! You running Dual System for streaming?
How's the iGPU performance in Premiere? And does the iGPU acceleration work with the 9900K?
