  1. Anybody planning a Ryzen build?

    For ASUS Prime X370-PRO motherboard owners, there appears to be yet another BIOS update available. Version 0810 (Dated 2017/08/18) says: 1. Enhance Memory Compatibility for Ryzen CPU 2. Improve LAN stability before entering to OS I just uninstalled my Ryzen 1800X CPU that I bought on launch day (March 2nd) to put in a box for RMA. I tested it and find it's one of the early chips suffering from the dreaded Linux segfault issue. I also see occasional crashes in my Windows 10 VM when performing multi-threaded tasks. They sent me a FedEx label and said they'll ship out the replacement once the tracking system shows I've dropped off the old one, so I'll take care of that tomorrow morning. As such, I won't be able to try out the new BIOS until I get my replacement chip and have vetted it using the current system settings. - Bill

    BTW, you can't deselect CPU0 until you select a different CPU first. Probably a requirement that at least one CPU is selected for any given VM. - Bill

    Pretty sure I've run into something similar. These days I just double and triple check that my path settings are accurate. Haven't had a problem in many, many months. We'll see if it shows up at the next OS upgrade. I'm still on 6.3.5 right now. - Bill
  4. Anybody planning a Ryzen build?

    Three things come to mind: 1) Click the "Settings" tab, then "VM Manager", and then switch to "Advanced View". Ensure there are no errors/warnings on this page. 2) Click "View libvirt log", see if anything in there is helpful. Post it here if necessary. 3) Toward the bottom under "Libvirt volume info", click "Scrub". Sometimes that gets me out of weird behavior. You probably want to be sure all your other VMs are stopped prior to doing this. For completeness, how long has this issue been occurring? Has it ever worked? Do you recall any system changes performed around the time the failure started? - Bill

    I'm not a gamer. My GPU is the Asus Radeon 6450 1GB (Desktop) Graphics Card. I can run a test like Cinebench from the Windows 10 VM and return results for that, if that's helpful? I don't own any of those high end games, though. - Bill

    I have downloaded an installed the 0807 BIOS dated 07/19/2017 Under "Advanced" --> "AMD CBS", there appear to be several new options: Zen Common Options RedirectForReturnDIs L2 TLB Associativity Platform First Error Handling Enable IBS Opcache Control Custom Pstates / Throttling (*) Core/Thread Enablement (*) Streamline Stores Control DF Common Options DRAM scrub time Redirect scrubber control Disable DF sync flood propagation GMI encryption control xGMI encryption control CC6 memory region encryption Location of private memory regions System probe filter Memory interleaving size Channel Interleaving hash UMC Common Options DDR4 Common Options Fall_CNT DRAM Controller Configuration (*) CAD Bus Configuration (*) Data Bus Configuration (*) Common RAS (*) Security (*) DRAM Memory Mapping Chipselect Interleaving BankGroupSwap BankGroupSwapAlt Address Hash Bank Address Hash CS NBIO Common Options NB Configuration (*) NBIO Internal Poison Consumption NBIO RAS Control PSI ACS Enable PCIe ARI Support CLDO_VDDP Control (*) There are more sub-menus under this option, but I didn't dig to the bottom Overall, the BIOS upgrade went smoothly. None of the "dead system hang" boots like in the past couple of BIOS upgrades. unRAID booted normally and all my VMs/Dockers auto-started properly ... including the Windows 10 VM with GPU pass-through. System temperatures are about the same, idling round 45c. Not sure what else to check? - Bill
  8. Dynamix - System Temp

    Guess that makes the difference. The 1700 is a 3.0/3.7 GHz, 65 watt CPU, and the 1800X is a 3.6/4.0 GHz 95 watt CPU. I'm still thinking I could have easily gotten by with a 1700 chip. I doubt I stress out the 1800X enough to justify the price/power costs. I'll likely rethink which model I upgrade to when Zen2 comes out. - Bill

  12. Anybody planning a Ryzen build?

    What sort of VMs? You looking at multiple desktops, or high end gaming, or more of a cloud sort of solution? My rig is in my signature, it's mainly home/desktop stuff. I run a Windows 10 VM with GPU passthrough, and a LAMP VM that supports several websites with a database. There's a lot of room for future expansion. I should really look into building that Hackintosh VM someday. - Bill
  13. Just bought Ryzen 1700

    Dunno if/when things are changing regarding the Temperature plugin, however you can use the interim fix, documented here: https://forums.lime-technology.com/topic/55150-anybody-planning-a-ryzen-build/?page=19#comment-563450 Let me know how it goes and what temperatures you're seeing on your rig. - Bill

    So I've heard, but this behavior doesn't seem to be specific to AMD, or even Intel CPUs. - Bill
  15. Just bought Ryzen 1700

    I'm the sort of OCD that likes to fill all memory slots. My last build was built using the ASUS M3A78-T MB, AMD Phenom II X6 1100T 3.3GHz CPU, and 4 x 4GB Mushkin 991762 DDR2 800 (16GB) memory ... ran unRAID (both 5.x and 6.x) from 2012-2017 with zero problems related to memory. My recently upgraded build uses the ASUS Prime X370-PRO MB, AMD Ryzen 7 1800X 8-Core 3.6GHz CPU, and 4 x 16GB Crucial CT16G4DFD8213 DDR4 2133 (64GB) memory ... been running my main server since late March. No problems related to memory that I have encountered. Do you remember what sorts of "difficulties" were encountered with older AMD builds? - Bill
