Hey y'all! So I've been having a bit of an issue with my PC. Throughout windows it seems as though there isn't any anti-aliasing happening. The lines look jagged and sometimes I get these texture waves/shimmer. I've tried so many things. -reinstalling drivers -messing with nvidia control panel -replaced displayport cables/switch to HDMI -messing with monitor settings (2x VG27AQ) -reinstalled windows 10 pro -reseated the graphics card -display settings in windows I had a bitcoin mining virus that I dealt with and removed with malwarebytes. I also had a instance where I case swapped my pc and when removing the graphics card the plastic pcie clip that locks the card came off with it. I was able to put it back on as well as reseating the card with out it and it made no difference. So I'm a bit at a loss. The aliasing is especially noticeable when viewing HD/4K videos in a small windows instead of in full screen. Games seem to be running fine and anti-aliasing works on Warzone for example. Overall the Windows UI seems jagged and not as sharp as I remember.

3D Printed Housing for External Vive Wireless Card
Sorry I am not providing details as I want to get this info out quickly. I will respond with info if anyone shows interest, though I might be slow. I'm not sure if anyone remembers the talk about extending the range of their Vive wireless setups. Basically, you can get a PCIe extender (built for bitcoin mining rigs I believe), and use USB 3 to move your Vive Wireless WiGig card 35 ft (CORRECTION: 20ft) to your computer. I have found that it works great for me. But you end up with this exposed computer board just sitting there in your room with nothing to keep the board from sliding out of the extender socket and nothing to protect the board while also allowing cooling. I took enough measurements off of the board to create a 3d model of it that captures the design information needed to create an enclosure. I also created a 3d printable enclosure that is "good enough". I haven't posted it because "an artist's work is never done", but if I don't post what I have, I might never post it. So please let me know if anyone is interested in a model of the card and enclosure. Note that the enclosure is specific to the dimensions of the extender I bought, so minor tweaks might be required if you have a different extender. Here is a picture of the final result (yes I used tape for my prototype that I never developed further) I designed it to be modular (see the joiners I left open in the picture, in case a part of the print fails or needs fixing) and also it does not require supports. (Shakes fist at designs that require supports!) https://imgur.com/a/op35gVL (I would appreciate advice on how to get the image to show up in this post, I don't do this a lot) Answers: Here are the exact two products I bought from Amazon. No guarantees. At the time people were looking into extending the wire from the card to antenna, but my first try didn't work. Beware, the part that you plug into your pci slot can, incredibly, be put in backwards and still fit. Also there is nothing keeping the extender in the slot. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07N38Y799/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1 https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07G93LTVX/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1 I can't find an exact link that I followed for recommendations, but there are tons of hits here: https://www.google.com/search?q=vive+wireless+extension+reddit&oq=vive+wireless+extension+reddit&aqs=chrome..69i57j0.5679j0j7&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8
Hi there, I'm running esxi on my home server and I'm slowly coming to the conclusion that there are more discrete PCIe devices (low-power GPUs, USB-cards, SATA-controllers) that I'd like to pass through to individual VMs than my mainboard can provide PCIe slots for. How would esxi handle PCIe bifurcation or riser systems like this? Could I pass through all PCIe devices connected to these kinds of systems to individual VMs or could I only pass through the "original" slot on the motherboard? To clarify, I'm not worried about bandwidth here since I'm neither using high-power GPUs nor 10Gbit ethernet adapters nor NVMe-storage, so I'd be fine with having 16 PCIe x1 slots instead of one PCIe x16 slot. Thanks!
Using a old Tr board as a rendering platform? How good would it be??
So. With more and more parts coming out and upgrade season coming for me (3900x for me when this is all over) i’m looking at older TR boards, for their pcie lanes. I Am a 3d artist and instead of tossing my 2, older v56 cards away, i’d like to keep using them. So, i was wondering if it would even be possible to setup a old threadripper machine like a bitcoin mining rig, but for 3d rendering.
Hi, I have tried to build my own, but it appears like I've gotten rusty in this. It has also reached prices beyond my expectations. But I want to keep it for about 7-10 years. What will you be doing with this PC? Be as specific as possible, and include specific games or programs you will be using. I don't plan to use this for gaming or bitcoin mining. I will process a lot of text from external sources, compute numbers, and train some deep learning models. What is your maximum budget before rebates/shipping/taxes? 4000 USD / 36000 NOK. When do you plan on building/buying the PC? Note: beyond a week or two from today means any build you receive will be out of date when you want to buy. ASAP What, exactly, do you need included in the budget? (ToweOS/monitokeyboard/mouse/etc) Things I would want: CPU: AMD Ryzen 9 3950X (or something fast that has 16+ cores; I will run highly parallel jobs) GPU: GeForce RTX 2080 Ti (large memory is preferred) Memory: 32GB (or more) Motherboard: Preferably an X570 with PCIe 4.0 NVMe support. WiFi would be nice, because there is no network cabling around that area. USB-C heads would be nice, but not required. Case: USB-C is required. I prefer white, silvegrey, but black would be fine as well. No disc drive needed. Storage: NVMe (1 TB should be enough for me, I suppose). I already have an SSD inside my old machine. PSU: 850W or higher would be good. I have plans to install another card in that. Fans: I have no idea how many I need, nor where to mount them. Something less noisy would be nice. If water cooling is less-noisy and comparable in terms of pricing, I can go for water cooling. Which country (and state/province) will you be purchasing the parts in? If you're in US, do you have access to a Microcenter location? Norway If reusing any parts (including monitor(s)/keyboard/mouse/etc), what parts will you be reusing? Brands and models are appreciated. SSD (Samsung evo 850), keyboard, mouse, monitor. Brands of those don't matter. Will you be overclocking? If yes, are you interested in overclocking right away, or down the line? CPU and/or GPU? Most likely, no. However, it appears like both the CPU and the GPU can be overclocked to a certain extent. Are there any specific features or items you want/need in the build? (ex: SSD, large amount of storage or a RAID setup, CUDA or OpenCL support, etc) CUDA and OpenCL support would be required. I already have an SSD. But an NVMe drive is needed. Do you have any specific case preferences (Size like ITX/microATX/mid-towefull-tower, styles, colors, window or not, LED lighting, etc), or a particular color theme preference for the components? I don't like LED lighting. I prefer white, silver or grey cases. Size doesn't matter as long as I can place 2 full size PCIe cards in that. I don't like window, but don't mind if a cheap model has that. Do you need a copy of Windows included in the budget? If you do need one included, do you have a preference? No. It will run Linux. Extra info or particulars: Nothing apart from those. I would be very happy, if you could help me build something along these lines.
I have built many normal gaming PCs in the past. I started using NiceHash and thought "hell I can do this." Well it wasn't so easy getting everything to work. So here's all the somewhat tricky non typical stuff I figured out:
First off buy extra PCIe risers. They seem to have poor quality control. I had several duds.
Depending on your motherboard you might need to enable "4g Decoding" if you don't do this it wont be able to see more than 3 GPU's. Some motherboards have this enabled and don't have a setting for it so if you cant find it you probably don't need to worry about it. (This took me an embarrassing amount of time to figure out)
Next if you are using a new motherboard you want to change your PCIe settings to v2 or v1. This is also done in the BIOS. If you leave it on v3 it will likely be unstable. I think I have a bald spot from trying to figure out why the damn rig kept freezing up.
Lastly if you are using Nvidia cards FUCK GEFORCE EXPERIENCE. Just download the latest driver from Nvidias website. I had a lot of issues getting all of the GPUs recognized at the same time until I switched to the basic driver. After that it worked flawlessly.
Hopefully this will save someone some valuable time. Good luck!
I'll try and keep this as to the point as possible. I'm planning to build a small server-esque pc with an ATX motherboard that has many full length pcie slots, and as time goes on collect more low power video cards to fill all those slots up with to use with BOINC (for those of you wondering, the workload is basically the same as bitcoin mining, except i'm contributing to research instead of making money). My question is, with one motherboard and up to five video cards without pcie power connectors, will the motherboard be able to drive all of them? Or will I need to get a special motherboard with an extra molex connector or something on it for a little extra juice? Addendum: The motherboard I have in mind is an Asus Rampage IV Extreme, though any older motherboard with a bunch of full length pcie slots is welcome.
Planning a new fan-cooled 3D rendering workstation. I liked Entagma's build, but its already outdated with the new AMDs coming out in November with 128 PCIe lanes (PCIE 4.0). So ideally, the build can have the option to expand beyond 4 gpus using riser cards to split x16 pci slots into 2 pci x8... potentially 6-10 gpu's. Most cases can only handle 4 double-wide GPUs (rtx 2070). Are the bitcoin mining cases ok for 3D Rendering and fan cooling? I've seen a brand called Hydra III that looks promising. I don't want to buy a huge bulky rack just to use a rackmount style case. Or do you recommend another case? https://www.amazon.com/Hydra-III-Server-Mining-Case/dp/B07B4PPQK8
My POS motherboard only has ONE usb controller, which means I'm unable to pass it through to my Windows gaming VM. I need to do this as my Xbox wireless adapter is really wonky with just USB passthrough, and the only way to get around this is to passthrough an entire USB controller. Pretty sure this is a KVM issue as I've never had any issues passing through USB devices on ESXi. I have an mATX build with a huge graphics card, so my PCIe x2 slots are blocked off, but I managed to use one of those bitcoin mining rig extender cables to "breakout" the slot. My inelegant plan is to just get a PCIE to USB card and mount it externally. Anyone have any suggestions for a good card that works with unRAID? I see a lot of cheap options on eBay/Amazon. Used server grade cards would be ideal. I'm even open to alternate suggestions. Things I've thought about:
VirtuaHere running on another box. Pretty sure this introduces latency.
Something I'm missing to get USB passthrough working properly for bluetooth/xbox adapters.

Need some troubleshooting help! Riser 008s and R3c
This project isn't for gpu mining but I know these risers are mainly used for this purpose so I thought I might get some good feedback here. My project is that I have an itx board with a single x16 pcie slot. It also has 3 m.2 pcie gen3 x4 slots. I have one free m.2 slot and wanted to convert that to x16 via riser. I wanted a 2nd low power silent gpu added to the rig. I went with the fanless msi 1030. It has a max draw of ~30w so I figured sata power would be safe. I purchased this and this to test with. Neither work!! So it must be something on my end?? The first part is fairly standard, the difference being I'm going to a m.2 slot where most of you are coming from x1 or x4. "In theory" this should just work! I'll start with the 2nd part since it's very simple: m.2 connector -> x16 socket + sata power. I hooked this up, seated the gpu and booted up. Nothing. Not even bios. I pulled the gpu and booted. Bios worked and booted up (running a 1080ti direct on the board). Installed the gpu back and nothing. I bought the 1030 used so I pulled the 1080ti and installed the 1030 direct to the mb. Works! So then I thought maybe the riser is bad or that sata power is insufficient seeing that most gpus would also have 6+8pin direct whereas mine has no external power. So I swapped risers out. This time the 008s with additional power connectors. Exact same thing. First I powered via pci only. Then sata+pci. And finally sata+pci+molex. In all situations the red led lit up. In all situations if I do not have the gpu plugged in it boots up fine. The strange thing is I never get into bios. No speaker or post lcd on this board so my troubleshooting is limited. And to note I test both gpu hdmi ports just to make sure one vs the other was set to primary. I got lazy and just looked at my mouse to light up to see if it booted. The mouse stayed dark, implying it never posted. Any help would be greatly appreciated! solved I have two m.2. ports which are pcie only. I have 1 port that is pcie/sata. the suggestion by u/sqrtlurface was to use the pcie/sata port and now the 1030 is being recognized in both linux and windows.
Im looking at building a multi moniter setup and using a ryzen 7 cpu but im having trouble finding any motherboards that will support triple gpu. With intel boards theres x16 , x8 x8, or x8,x4,x4, but im not seeing any amd mobos with 8xx4x4 offerings, can anyone point me to one or is it just something that doesnt exist?
