  1. What cards will work then? Just the short ones meant for mini itx cases?
  2. I'm in Germany and spoke with the same folks the people here have spoken with. Super helpful. Just know that they may not be able to answer at Asrock because this may just be an issue with Unraid. In my tests which I posted about a few pages back the IPMI works just fine at the same time the iGPU is active in Proxmox.
  3. If you don't mind losing a pcie slot but gaining an M.2 slot and not being able to run Core series CPUs/non-ECC RAM you could see if you could get your hands on a Super Micro X11SCH-F. I was talking to someone awhile back that confirmed they have used the IPMI functionality and the iGPU simultaneously with that board.
  4. They are saying that as of at least p2.30 (not a beta revision) that iGFX can be enabled in the BIOS. But I was linked to 2.34 again as well so either should work. --------------------------- Sent: Friday, January 8, 2021 7:15:25 PM Subject: RE: $E3C246D4U$ I/O errors and kernel panic using nvme for boot (United States) "Thank you for your patience! According to the BIOS engineering team, the latest retail BIOS P2.30 already includes such function, but the term is now changed to IGFX. Your board has a BMC controller. And as long as the BMC is working, IPMI communication is already there. Hope that helps. Thank you!"
  5. The screenshots below show the iGPU is active and working on the hypervisor itself (Proxmox) ready to be passed through. On the left is remote control over IPMI and on the right I am SSH'd in at the same time. I don't know if it makes a difference but I have the i965-va-driver installed that is available to Debian/Ubuntu distros. I'm not sure what is available to Slack/Unraid, if this could cause the difference. Edit: So Emby in a Docker container inside an LXC on Proxmox is showing the iGPU ready for use and remote control through the IPMI is still working the same as shown above:
  6. Thanks for the info about the BIOS I will get that set up. I have tried to install Proxmox, Ubuntu Desktop 18.04 and Ubuntu Server 20.04 to a newly purchased WD_Black SN750 that was working well in an Asrock Z390m-itx/ac for the past few weeks. I have no other drives hooked up to the board so the SATAO port sharing shouldn't be a problem. I just successfully installed Proxmox to a Seagate Ironwolf SSD 240GB hooked up to SATA_1 so my next step will be to hook that drive up to SATA0 after removing the M.2 card and then try to install to it again. William from Asrock just replied to my email too so good news there ---------------------------------- Edit: It seems that the NVME drive decided to die when I moved it from one system to the other even though it is like a 2 week old drive with about 12 hours total usage with most being idle. I put it in another system and it gave the same errors when trying to create a partition. So not an issue with the mobo.
  7. What is the BIOS setting needed to enable use of the iGPU? I only see an option whether I want it enabled when there is an external video card attached to the system. Is this what I am looking for? It is currently set to auto after updating to 2.21A. Also, has anyone experienced issues when booting from nvme? I am getting I/O and partitioning errors. Edit: After trying several more OS's (Ubuntu and Fedora) I am getting install errors all around. I am beginning to think I may have a faulty board but I don't have another nvme to test with. I just know the nvme works fine in another motherboard. I sent a email to support but if anyone has any suggestions in the mean time I am all ears.
  8. Newegg has it for $250 with a $30 off coupon code today and I decided to jump in. Here we go!
  9. Thank you for the info. Are you able to answer as to the ease of accessing the IPMI on this board that I asked about earlier today?
  10. Yeah I am working in the Silverstone CS-381 mATX case and I only have an SST AR11 heatsink with a Noctua fan on it. I am looking for the most workload with the lowest heat. Is this not the way to go? Edit: That said, I do currently have an I7-3770 in there and at 100% CPU it only gets to about 65 C so maybe I could go a bit higher on TDP.
  11. Another question: Is it relatively easy to access the IPMI video feed? For my older Asus boards, the "easiest" solution I've found is to run a docker container on another host that runs an old version of firefox with java enabled. I VNC from my desktop into that container and then I can go to the IPMI address in that browser, accept a bunch of security warnings and pull up the video feed. I was hoping that had changed with these newer boards.
  12. Ah good to know. It pretty clearly states that board has quicksync and then the manual talks about IPMI through the ASMB8 chip so maybe it does work. I suppose that Asus board isn't really worth it now though as it is an LGA1150 for $200 and this Asrock C246 board is ~$250 it seems.
