I`m at it again, this time i am going to experiment with a addition to my homeserver setup, this time with a rig that has 4\8 gpu cores that i can pass through over the network, preferrably to guest who brings “slower” laptops when they come over to play some games!
First of all i had to look for some good deals on a mobo and CPU, i didnt want to cash out full price for everything, so i went to some auction sites and look for cheap 1st gen Ryzen stuff!
The stuff i bought:
CPU: Ryzen 7 1800X
Mobo: Asus Prime X370-PRO
Ram: Corsair vengance 3000mhz 2x8gb
M.2: ADATA 256gb
PSU: Enermax 1000w 87+
All this set me back around 200$USD at auction
s i had from before, ive been collecting GPUs for years, and i happen to have 4 x GTX 690`s here, and im planning on using two of them, to go quadsli with two cards.
I`m no expert at all in this passthrough stuff, so this is gonna be a totally new experience for me, ive done alot of custom watercooling and overclocking records in the past, but this will probably test my patience more, but i like a challenge!
I`m gonna post pics as it goes on, but now, to some building pics, and inital testing in Windows and 3dmark
She gonna look good!
Good old cards!
Some repasting and cleaning had to happen
All of the yesses!
Couldnt fine the mounts for the S36, zipties will have to do for the inital testing(or tweezers if you want)
Its important to stay hydrated while building
All done, test results coming during the day!
Thanks for your attention! please feel free to give positive or negative feedback!
