Description

Running Fedora as the daily driver OS on first m.2 drive, with Windows for gaming on the m.2 drive. SSDs are configured in a RAID0 for my game library. Mostly used for productivity, but also used often for gaming.

I'm still struggling to get Fedora installed, and I think it's a combination of the i9-9900K and RTX 2080ti that are making the install and first GUI boot impossible. Will troubleshoot that with the Fedora team on Monday.

Windows results are looking very good!

Doing final leak testing with air before filling and posting the final final pic.

Did I hear Fedora?

sudo dnf install @virtualization

Passthrough your Windows M.2 and use ACS to separate your iGPU and primary GPU. You can forgo dual boot and do "duel boot" (Using your Windows install in a GPU Passthrough VM)

I'll definitely take a look at how the i9 iGPU performance is in Linux. When we (I was Red Hat's KVM and RHV Product Manager.. Still there, doing other things) first implemented the vfio functionality into KVM, integrated graphics performance was still crap thanks to Gnome 3, so still needed accelerated graphic performance on the Fedora instance. Running 2 GPUs wasn't an option due to IOMMU issues. May play with that first since it will be a fresh install. Need to see if that is even possible with Silverblue.

Maybe LxQt as the Desktop Environment? That should be lightweight enough to run on the Intel iGPU.

I prefer Xfce, so will go for that spin first, then see from there.

I'm looking into using this board for virtualization, and am curious as to what the IOMMU groupings were for it.

Those are some very thicc radiators. Looking good so far!

Do you have 64 GB RAM working well? Did you get advertised 3200 MHz? Did you check performance? I am also looking for for 9900K with 64 GB, may be with Asus Prime Z390-A or similar, so your experience is valuable. Thanks

I almost exclusively run Linux, and normally quite a few VMs on top. 64GB runs very well at 3200MHz. I used the XMP profile of the Asus Prime Z390 with no issues. sysbench results below:

Thank you for the information. One more question: did you change DRAM frequency in BIOS settings to match your DDR 3200? Also there should be a hardware monitor somewhere in the BIOS that should display the current RAM frequency. What does it show? Thank you

I used the XMP profile for BIOS memory settings and it detected my memory just fine. BIOS and dmidecode both detect 3200MHz memory.

$ sudo dmidecode -t 17

dmidecode 3.2

Hey nice build you have their m8 +1. Btw i have a question did you overclock the monitor to 144hz? And does ur rtx card work on its freesync? Please answer me im waiting for you ASAP

There is no need to overclock the monitor. It runs at 144Hz out of the box. The 2080TI works flawlessly with Freesync as far as I can tell. Zero flickering, great performance. The RTX performance from this system is definitely on the right side of the bell curve: http://www.3dmark.com/pr/103115
