  1. No different. Passing through the HDMI audio from the Vega causes the VM to fail. Requires a hard reboot. The article mentions the devices showing up differently in the VM template after stubbing but this is not the case for me. I see no difference. I've tried enabling upstream and downstream, the other one. Same shit on all. Regardless what I do I cannot get the VM to start with the HDMI audio passed through alongside. Disheartening start to the whole thing, making me rethink the viability of this.
  2. Can you elaborate on what you mean by stub?
  3. Hey everyone, just got my unRAID server setup and more or less running. I've got a couple questions that hopefully I can get a little bit of help with, I managed to get most of the stuff figured out on my own so far with SpaceInvaderOne videos and forum searches. I can get my Vega 56 to pass through to Windows 10 via Seabios but the OVMF just fails regardless what I do, including adding the vBIOS ROM. The VM just never takes the GPU, it doesn't black screen just nothing at all, same unRAID OS page. However, when I pass the vBIOS through SeaBios it will boot the Windows 10 installer / OS, but at first it artifacts the shit out of the screen until after the Vega 56 is picked up by windows devmgmt. I can only get the VM to boot if I either do not pass audio or use the on board audio, attempting to pass the Vega's audio will cause the VM to fail to start. Once Windows is installed I can't install the AMD GPU graphics without locking up the VM, black screen, crashes. I suppose i'll start trying older GPU drivers to see if they work. Any thoughts on why it might artifact during Windows install or why passing the GPU audio through causes the VM to fail would be appreciated. GPU is in it's own IOMMU and Windows 10 ISO was downloaded fresh from Microsoft website. GPU is scoring 5700 in Time Spy which is about 1k short of where it would normally be bare metal, my guess is due to the missing drivers. Kind of surprised it did as well as it did without them, getting some random screen flicker which I also assume is related to the drivers. Specs: Ryzen 2600 VM using 4 cores, HT pairs, not using 0/1 and nothing pinned 16GB RAM stock timings / clocks MSI B450 Gaming Pro Carbon MSI Airboost Vega 56 PCIE x4 USB Card No onboard GPU, no secondary GPU available / motherboard slot available
  4. Damn, thanks for the tip. I saw a thread where it was an issue like 9 months ago and thought surely they've fixed that by now. Hmm, well that's not _that_ big of a deal to me more of an annoyance I suppose. I sure hope it does get fixed soon or a workaround or something. Sucks to have to reboot a linux box constantly lol. EDIT -- I found this forum thread regarding Threadripper having issues with GPU reset bugs with a known workaround. Is it a totally different issue?
  5. The full build will be: Ryzen 2600 @ 4Ghz (Have) MSI B450 Pro Carbon AC (Have) 16GB -> 32GB RAM Vega 56 (Have) Dell Perc H310 (IT Mode) 4 Port USB PCIE 1X 2 x 860 Evo 500GB - Cache + Parity (Have one) 3 x WD 3TB Red - Parity + Data (Have) 1 x WD 1TB Black - VM Passthrough Disk (Have) Define R6 w/ CLC 280 & Noctua Redux fans (Have)
  6. Yeah it's already been flashed to IT mode thankfully. I'm running the Ryzen 2600 @ 4Ghz so I hit around 15k in passmark I figure that will help a bit to give the 2 cores for unraid / plex some more grunt. I'm going to get the setup running once I get the cards I need and do some testing on it. I was expecting to have to pick up another 16GB of RAM, just be happy to not have to buy a different CPU as well lol.
  7. I see the majority of you are using 2700 or other 8 core Ryzens. Anyone using a 2600? I already have this CPU and i'm just curious if you anticipate issues with unraid + plex w/ 1 stream + gaming VM. Currently have 16GB RAM and will be using two 500gb 860 Evo's for cache in parity.
  8. Yeah i've been watching a ton of space invaders videos lol. I had also thought about doing something like 4 cores for the VM and 2 cores to the unraid / plex, glad to hear that should work. Really all I need now is a second SSD for cache parity and for my SAS2 card, cables, and PCIE usb card to come in the mail. I'm curious to see if i'll need more than 16GB of RAM.
  9. Recently discovered unRAID while planning a server build. I currently have a gaming desktop that consists of: Ryzen 2600, MSI B450 Pro Carbon, Vega 56, 16GB DDR4, 860 500GB SSD. In the planning stages of the build I found a great deal on 3x 3TB WD Reds and LSI 2008 SAS2 card w/ cables. After realizing that I could potentially use GPU pass through for a gaming VM it made me consider scrapping the idea of a second PC and just beefing up this one a bit. Would the 2600 be sufficient for this task with 6 cores and 12 threads? It seems like most people use the 2700 for this, but I already have the 2600. Are there any caveats to this method or things I should be aware of beforehand? Should I continue I was thinking of grabbing a second 860 500GB and possibly another 16GB of RAM. Realistically this will just be used for 1 - 2 plex streams and gaming - with a steam while gaming being very rare.
