  1. Never mind, I missed the note right on the Unraid website saying it was closed.
  2. I'm in there, the reason for asking was twofold. One I wanted to join the IRC and see if there was much activity there. And two, I wanted to find out what in the world I'm doing wrong so that I can also join other IRC channels.
  3. I had an 8 port lsi card and upgraded to LSI SAS2116 card to add more drives. I'm a big fan of the LSI cards, they are recommended by the community on a regular basis and I have had no issue with mine. In fact the one I just retired will be going into a second server that I am building for work. As far as the network card I would make sure your settings are optimized and check your current speed. I think you likely won't gain much speed, unless you do something like link aggregation on the lan side with the extra port. I think the extra ports come in handy for vlans too
  4. Did you make the drive bootable and check out the tips here?
  5. Take a close look at those cards you listed. Some of them are meant for internal connections and others have external connections, like to plug in to a disk shelf. The Unraid wiki is a good tool and the link posted above has some good info as well. Best to do some research before ordering.
  6. From my experience western digital drives are usually sata inside. (I've only shucked a few) There is a hardware section in the wiki that lists compatibility for SAS cards. I run an LSI hba flashed in it mode. (Easily found on ebay, check "theartofserver" store for one, but there are many other sellers too. I don't run my cache in raid mode, that would depend on what you are going to store on there. See this video: Sent from my SM-N975U1 using Tapatalk
  7. I'm not on threadripper but my daily driver is an unraid server with a 5950x 64GB Ram and a Rtx3090. I spend most of my time in an Arch linux vm. That vm has 2 usb controllers and a sata controller passed through to it as well as the gpu. I also have a windows 10 vm with the same gpu and USB passed through but 2 nvme drives instead of the sata controller. (So I only use 1 vm at a time, spaceinvader script to switch) My motherboard is Msi meg x570 unify and I think the iommu groupings are excellent. It has taken me much time and effort, lots of tinkering to get everything working the way I wa
  8. I have one last suggestion for you, and I have no idea if this is relevant. My mobo bios allows me to enable or disable resizable bar, which I think is a fairly new technology. I'm on AMD. Mine is disabled. Any chance your mobo has that setting and have you checked it? It might be completely irrelevant or may not even be there, just thought I'd ask because sometimes someone gives me an off suggestion but it leads me to the right place.
  9. As far as I know you only need to dump vbios for vm passthrough. Use spaceinvader's script, it is super easy.
  10. And you have followed the instructions for CHR? Link
  11. Have you tried "video=efifb:off" in the syslinux config?

    If this is the wrong forum to ask in I apoligize I'm using IRSSI to try to join #unraid I log into and I get "-NickServ(NickServ@services.)- You are now identified for joecool169." But when I /join #unraid I get "#unraid Cannot join channel (+r) - you need to be identified with services - see" I'm a newbie I know. Am I missing something easy here?
  13. Can you type exit and then find a boot option it likes? Sent from my SM-N975U1 using Tapatalk
  14. I use MSI afterburner and it seems to accurately report my gpu temp. Sent from my SM-N975U1 using Tapatalk
  15. Keep in mind that I am by no means an expert, but I think that Windows is crashing and then the gpu has not reset properly due to the crash. I would be trying to troubleshoot the cause of the crash, gpu temp, cpu temp, windows logs. There are a couple forum threads about switching slots and downgrading mobo bios for similar problems. I googled "internal error: Unknown PCI header type '127' for device" and then sorted to show only results from
