Re: One monitor out of 8 has a different Resolution

Hard to say, I presume each card is driving four monitors? If one card is able to drive all monitors at native resolutions and other is having issues driving one of monitors at native resolutions. It would role a simple bandwidth issue on the GPU. The 4x PCIe slot should be able to provide enough po...

Re: How to install Win-10 on a M/C that came with Win-11

Is there a reason why you need Windows to use 10 over Windows 11?

Windows 11 is basically the same darn thing with a facelift and enforcing "trusted computing" schema more.

Re: NVIDIA & Win-11

Oh yes, the curse of Windows ecosystem's inconsistent DPI/GUI scaling on multi-monitor environments. I suppose you already had attempt to force all monitors to scale the same and the problem still persists. Does it happen when you use applications that run at fullscreen mode at non-native resolution?

Re: Server with LGA-3647 does not boot at all

Yep, the integrated GPU is analog only (VGA). HDMI doesn't carry analog over it (Digital only) and would require an active convertor if you go that route. The discrete GPU may not be working due to motherboard's UEFI being set to use IGPU first. I had a similar quirk with my older Z77 board when I f...

Re: How to fit full length 16X Nvidia T-600 into a 4X Slot ?

Is that 4x physical PCIe slot open-ended? Open-ended slots have an open gap at the end, while closed slots are flushed out. Some PCIe slots are open-ended which will allow you to plug in cards with fingers longer than slot but you will only get bandwidth and power delivery of the open-ended physical...

Re: Low GPU utilization on RTX 3080ti?

You could have Vsnyc or some other framerate limit in place under those games. Modern GPUs only utilize as much processing power as needed and only push themselves at 100% if they are being heavily taxed. I doubt you are CPU-limited under those games. I have a 6900XT driven by a mere 9700K at 5Ghz. ...

Re: PSU unit for upgrade questions

The 620W should work fine as long as you aren't trying to drive a bunch of HDDs or do some crazy overclocking. 750W would certainly give you a lot more breathing space though. Modern GPUs only drink tons of power when they are being fully utilized. Ampere is an efficient architecture that pulls sign...

Re: UEFI GPT and Windows 8

NT 6.x has UEFI bootable GPT support while NT 5.3 (x64 version only) have the ability to read/write onto GPT partitions but cannot boot from them. 32-bit versions can only use the Protective MBR portion of the GPT partition (first-4TiB).

Re: Seeking some handholding - fan setup, temp understanding

You are perfectly fine. My 9700K paired with a Noctuna NH-U9S easily hits 90C when fully taxed while falling back to ~60-70C under lighter loads. It only throttles when it reaches 100C. It has endured this for almost three years now.

Re: Motherboards and BIOS PCIe bifurcation required

It requires a platform (PCIe controller) and UEFI/BIOS that properly implements PCIe bifurcation (The ability to split-up and re-allocate PCIe lanes electrically). This is mostly limited to workstation and server-tier boards. There are few power-user, enthusiast-tier boards that do it as well.

Fish on pizza is normal and part of the original style back in Italy. Fruit works fine as long it compliments the savory(umami) and saltiness of the other toppings. That's why Hawaiian Pizza (Really Canadian Pizza :P) is a thing.
