    I'd replace it anyway, so maybe one can get lucky with that. Of course by the time the Rhyzome is actually available, the source may be identified as something else. I don't know how it can be confirmed that I am using the post reply during the edit window. Maybe that is also better with...

    The old truncation bug is at it again. I'm just a bit frustrated at the lack of availability of parts. I ran into the second failed installation of software this month, a simple firmware installer. 7 is dead. 🍁

    Who looks under the hood of a normal production vehicle if it is working right? Maybe people need to add the wiper fluid once in a while. Typically it would only be for some special kinds of fancy or modified cars or when buying a used vehicle. When I get a rental car, I don't look under the...

    10 gig Ethernet

    I was just thinking that some motherboards have the 10GbE now, but it's just the regular RJ45 not the SFP+ modular. It's probably not worthwhile. If you have 3 computers and 2 storage servers/NAS, for example all on the SFP+ interface, what switch do you use to connect them all?

    I'd rather see some graphs and a written explanation of the data. 12 minutes is a joke to present so little data. The main question I have is how often do you switch the tires? The weather forecast must be key, but unless you have a truck to haul tires back and forth from a shop or equipment...

    What would you use for the RAM? According to AMD the Rhizome 3950x needs DDR4-3200, but I can't find any 3200MHz 32 GB modules. The 32GB modules are only available in slower speeds such as 2666. The other option is 4x16GB, but 64GB total RAM seems low going into the 2020s. :(

    I found this slide. The big question is if those "16x Graphics" lanes are only for graphics or if some can be used for the SAS/SATA HBA? From reading multiple mainboard specs, the first two PCIe slots are normally the primary 16x (either 16x, 0 or 8x, 8x) and the third is a 4x slot that would...

    Yikes! Some of those x570 boards are $750. :( I never paid more than $300 before for MB. What is so special about the AMD chipset?

    Ryzen

    I know that the 16x slots degenerate to 8x. That is fine with me, but the total number of slots on many boards is well over the number of PCIe lanes so something has to give. I had a bad experience with the Asus and the last two Gigabytes boards died too early. Now I have the two MSI that have...

    Ryzen

    I'm not an expert in the PCIe architecture, but several previous boards have hardware shared lanes. Therefore a device will simply not be recognized if there is a conflict. Examples are M.2, PCIe, SATA, Thunderbowls and other integrated devices.

    Ryzen

    Maybe I could use a 4x PCIe card for SATA to save some lanes? Most of them are cheap so I'm suspicious.
  48. LunarMist

    Ryzen

    I'm not sure how the lanes are divided on the PCIe bus. I need a video card, 10GbE SPF+ Ethernet, SATA/SAS controller, and ideally two M.2 SSDs. I could probably live with one M.2.

    Ryzen

    It seems like the single cores are about the same or maybe the 3950X is a bit faster per core than the 3970X due the heat dispersion. Anyways, I'm not seeing much need for all those cores of the better CPUs. I just need to figure out how to live with the measly number of PCIe lanes provided by...

    I had problems with two series of Athalon XP CPUs and new mainboards that wouldn't boot with them due to the BIOS. That's why I'd rather have a new chipset with the new CPU.
