  1. 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
  2. Yes, original post edited for clarity.
  3. Used SATA 3.5" hard drives for sale. Sizes range from 300gb through 2TB. All drives were pulled from working systems and were subsequently wiped without error. 1 x Seagate Barracuda 300GB 7200rpm (ST3300831AS) - $15 10 x Seagate Barracuda 750GB 7200rpm (ST3750640AS) - $20 each 12 x Seagate Barracuda 1.5TB 7200rpm (ST31500341AS) - $25 each 9 x Samsung Spinpoint F4 2TB 5400rpm (HD204UI) - $30 each 2 x Samsung Spinpoint F4 2TB 5400rpm (HD204UI/ST20000DL004) - $30 each 1 x Western Digital Caviar Green 2TB 5400rpm (WD20EARS) - $30 4 x Seagate Barracuda XT 2TB 7200rpm (ST32000641AS) - $40 each Prices do not include shipping. Preferred shipping will be US Priority Mail. I can do UPS or FedEx if you have an account to cover shipping costs. Free shipping for bulk orders (10+ drives) may be available to destinations in the continental USA. Payment can be made via PayPal or US Postal Money Order. Returns accepted within 14 days, but buyer pays return shipping. SMART reports for the listed drives is posted here: http://www.ufopinball.com/FS I will do my best to answer any questions. Bill
  4. Here's my rig/signature: Cortex • unRAID Server Pro 6.3.5 (Dual Parity) • ASUS Prime X370-PRO MB • AMD Ryzen 7 1800X 8-Core 3.6GHz • Crucial CT16G4DFD8213 DDR4 2133 (64GB) • Seasonic SS-660XP2 660W 80 PLUS PLATINUM • Asus Radeon 6450 1GB (Desktop) Graphics Card • 12 x Seagate ST4000DM000 4TB 5400rpm (40TB) • 2 x SAMSUNG 850 EVO 1TB SSD (Cache) • Docker: PlexTV • VM: CentOS (LAMP server) - Bill
  5. 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
  6. 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
  7. So I've heard, but this behavior doesn't seem to be specific to AMD, or even Intel CPUs. - Bill
  8. 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
  9. Looks good, which CPU and MB do you have? My Ryzen 1800X idles at 42c (at best) with nothing running but unRAID. All dockers and VMs are stopped. The only thing "loaded" is a window to the web UI on the "Main" tab to show the current temp. The UPS is reporting 45 watts, and that's with all drives spun down. If you're getting lower 30s, I'm wondering what I may be doing wrong? Chip isn't overclocked or anything. I guess 45 watts isn't *bad*, but if it could be better, I'd like to find out what I'm doing differently. My specs are in my signature. Thanks! - Bill
  10. Yes, well sort of anyway. The full details are posted in another thread: https://forums.lime-technology.com/topic/55150-anybody-planning-a-ryzen-build/?page=19#comment-563450 It's definitely an interim solution, though I don't know if/when a more official solution will be made available. Let me know if you have problems getting this working... - Bill
  11. Yes, I am using the "pcie_acs_override=downstream,multifunction" setting so that I can get the IOMMU group breakdown for my Windows 10 VM. Seems to work fine for me under the latest BIOS and AGESA release. - Bill
  12. Upgraded the BIOS image for the ASUS Prime X370-PRO motherboard to the latest revision 0805 which was released earlier this week. This is the release version of the BIOS featuring the AMD/Ryzen AGESA update. Like the previous time, I had to reboot a few times to get things settled after the BIOS upgrade. No idea why, but it seems to be running smoothly now. No noticeable changes to the IOMMU groupings between this and the previous 0803 (beta) BIOS version. Not that I would have expected it, but in case anyone was wondering. - Bill
  13. Thanks for the info on the ACS override, I was not aware that there were such problems. Will keep an eye on it, but so far my Ryzen system has been very stable. I would run more tests, but it's also a production system (runs several websites, and Plex for my family) so I'm not at liberty to take it down to perform testing at the level you describe. - Bill
  14. I may have, but it's been awhile. I originally ran Cinebench and Blender. Are there other benchmarks you suggest? Note that my GPU isn't a gaming model. As for "utilizing other resources" ... is there an easy way to do this? I can start a second VM, assign it all remaining CPU cores, and run Prime95 there. Does that cover what you are asking? - Bill
  15. Is there any downside to using the ACS override feature? Once enabled, my IOMMU groupings are very, very favorable for VM usage. I am currently passing through my GPU, and also a USB 3.0 port from the motherboard. ASUS Prime X370-PRO motherboard, and the Ryzen 1800X (you can probably do very well with a 1700 though!) - Bill
