  1. Sorry for the delay, wanted to verify my results and then life got in the way. CPU isolation did help. However, I am still seeing the issue at times. If there is bench-marking software that would help confirm the issue's source I would love to know. Any other suggestions?
  2. I had the CPU Pinning setup, but missed the CPU isolation. That is now done and will test latter today. It stutters badly, not just frame drops. To my knowledge I am not using GSYNC.
  3. Good day everyone. I am mostly happy with my Unraid setup, however I am having issue while gaming. First, I know my hardware is a bit old, but these games worked great before I moved to Unraid. My issue is even on the lowest settings in games that previously ran on high setting or better. Lets take the game Guild Wars 2 on the lowest settings I can almost get a smooth-ish experience (25-30fps drops to 15-20 at times). I don't appear to have a CPU/RAM/GPU bottleneck according to the windows VM, the GPU is barely touched. I have attached my VM's xml file and the diagnostics. M/B: MSI X99A SLI PLUS(MS-7885) BIOS: American Megatrends Inc. Version 1.E0. Dated: 06/15/2018 CPU: Intel® Core™ i7-5820K CPU @ 3.30GHz HVM: Enabled IOMMU: Enabled Cache: 384 KiB, 1536 KiB, 15360 KiB Memory: 32 GiB DDR4 (max. installable capacity 512 GiB) GPU slot1: GeForce GT 710 (for unraid boot) GPU slot2: GeForce GTX 980 Ti (passthrough to VM as well as the built-in sound card.) Any help is appreciated as I am starting to seriously consider switching back to windows on bare metal. Win10 VM.xml
  4. Good day all and my apologies upfront if this isn't the correct place to post this or if I missed a post that could have resolved my issue, but I need some help. I am just trying to install a Windows 10 VM with passthrough of my nvidia gtx 980TI. I have even go as far as buying a second cheap gpu and moving my gpu a slot down, this helped. Here is a list of things I have tried(most set within the GUI: Machine/BIOS i440fc-4.2/OVMF Q35-4.2/OVMF i440fc-4.2/SeaBIOS Q35-4.2/SeaBIOS Hyper-V: No (tried yes, but failed horribly) Installing windows with/without the gpu being passed through and with VNC being primary and the gpu being secondary. Nvidia Sound Card passed through Adding and not adding a ROM bios ROM bios from website and "fixed" per spaceinvader's video ROM bios dumped from the GPU itself and variations of the rom bios on each machine/BIOS pairing I have also tried various xml edits setting kvm to off couple others the just failed to apply or I just didn't understand what I should do. single cpu or several All of this has lead to failure each time and despair is starting to set in. I seem to have the best luck with i440fc/OVMF, hyper-v:no, using the ROM I downloaded and then fixed per the video, haveing the nvidia sound card passing through, VNC as primary and gpu as secondary (doesn't seem to matter if I add it right away or wait until install is done). I have tested passthrough with ubuntu and it seems to work fine. Also passthrough works for the first part of windows 10 install if the gpu is primary, but fails after the first reboot. When I install the drivers via windows update, it just reboots and doesn't appear to install. when I use the nvidia installer it installs and the gpu is named correctly, but it has a code 43. I have included my current vm xml and my unraid diag file. I would greatly appreciate any help with this I have been fighting with it for 6 days now and really don't want to go away from unraid. Thanks in advance!
