Yeah but this one uses ddr4 ECC, and another Dell Mobo wouldn't help me as it would have the same issue. The only salvageable thing would be the CPU but a 2667 V3 is like 30 cad with shipping included from US. Case is proprietary and so is the PSU. So, not much you can reuse. Most x99 consumer boards on the market do not support ECC.
I used ECC in a Gigabyte x99 with my 2698v4 before going dual socket. Supermicro has fantastic ATX boards for that generation too.

Also has a dual socket ATX. Been my favorite server board so far.

Edit: Supermicro X10SRA looks like a good fit.

if your wondering. that whay i pick what i did.
i do some gaming.
but its more folding,boinc,vm,plex etc stuff on my pc.
i also notice how limited gaming mobo are with pci lanes.
they do out right lie to . wendell lvl1tech found that out this year i think on mobo he has.

I saw an Asus Z87-WS combo with 4770k CPU for like 220 cad. Specs say quad x8, that would hold my 3 gpus plus one nvme onto an adapter, once I update the bios to support the nvme or I could do a raid5 on the onboard intel controller with 3 ssds. But most probably single nvme with dram cache will be my choice.
@dogwitch please link that article.

CPU has 40 lanes, more than enough for even a quad GPU config with everything running 8x. Board issue most likely. I had four GPUs on a 1680v2 and x79 Classified and everything ran fine.

Depends on the board. Haswell consumer chips are 16 lanes and I'd run 8x to GPU and 4x to NVME PCI card. Worked fine with the 1080ti (at the time) and whatever NVME I used then. SLI was a clear 8x/8x so yeah, differs between boards.

This board must have a PLX pcie splitter/multiplexor, I guess it takes all 16 lanes from CPU creates 32 then splits in a quad x8 configuration, have you seen what a huge heatsink it has? It's my only explanation to it's capability. The NF200 chip is only a pcie 2.0 unit.

Are you trying to get a number of GPUs in a single system to fold with? What's the end goal here? Maybe I missed a previous post somewhere....

Has F@H PPD gone up? This is just my 3GB GTX-1060 averaging what I thought was 1070 territory. Average close to 770,000 PPD.

That's notably better than the 1060-6G I used to have, which averaged mid-600K. It's entirely likely you're getting assigned high-value WUs.

Is there a way to get a report from FAH to see what each machine/GPU is averaging or doing so to speak? I'm just curious :) I've not seen anything so to speak, in your face with the information....
