    Difficulty understanding PCIe bifurcation r.e. adding an NVMe SSD adapter card

    I've read some great threads on here on this topic, but I am struggling to know exactly what to do (and buy) in relation to my own issue. First, my setup. I haven't built this yet and they're all still individually boxed up, but I have all the following: Motherboard: MSI MPG Z390M GAMING EDGE...

    PCIe switch + DIY bifurcation for max M.2

    Hello everybody, I was thinking of a crazy idea for a DIY project and I saw some similar projects with DIY PCIe bifurcation boards that I thought it would be a good place to post my idea for feedback. My plan, IDK if it will even work, is to take a PCIe switch, like the Broadcom P411W-32P...

    ASUS PRIME Z590-P PCIe Wifi cards not working

    Back in January I purchased an ASUS PRIME Z590-P mainboard to build a new Windows 11 system for my wife. We have wired internet, so I did not buy the Wifi version. Now we've moved the computer and cannot make a wired connection so I want to install a Wifi adapter that will take advantage of our...

    Windows 10 won't boot after adding second HDD

    This is a first for me: Just did a major upgrade on my roommate's computer (CPU - Intel 11th Gen/RAM - 16GB/Mobo - Gigabyte Z590 Gaming X/Storage - 2TB Firecuda NVME - top/CPU handled slot for PCIe4x4). I installed Windows 10 on the new NVME drive, no issues, even after several reboots. When I...

    Reduced NVME drive performance following OS re-imaging

    So, I have a dell XPS 9510 laptop (i7-11800H, 32GB DDR4-3200, RTX 3050, Win10 Enterprise, for reference). From the factory it came with a 512GB Micron 2300 PCIe 3.0x4 SSD. However, the laptop actually supports PCIe 4.0, so I got a Sabrent Rocket 4 Plus 1TB to replace the OEM Micron drive. I had...

    PCIE Bifurcation related, a niche technical question.

    I've been doing extensive research for a work related project. Its a niche application that needs a boatload of PCIe lanes. Between using bridge\switch chips or a motherboard with PCIe bifurcation, the bifurcation route seems to be not only far cheaper but also more reliable providing the...

    MoBo/Chipset/CPU PCIe lanes - clarification is needed

    Hi guys, could you please help me to understand lanes? Here are the points I'm currently "struggling" with: A "full-bandwidth" slot is the one which # of contacts (e.g. x8) is equal to the max # of lanes (i.e. 8) this slot can connect to. Is it right, that the # of lanes available to...

    HighPoint SSD7101A NVMe RAID controller fails unpredictably

    Hi everyone, I'm new in this forum, and I have a huge problem: I bought an HighPoint SSD7101A NVMe RAID controller (PCIe) for my hackintosh (a PC with Mojave running). I built a first raid with 4x Sabrent Rocket NVMe 2TB. After made the raid-0 via WebGUI and formatted in HFS+ in Disk Utility...

    Does NUMA Matter when Installing SAS HBA's, NVME drives and other expansion in MP systems?

    Hey all, I have a dual socket server board (Supermicro X9DRI-F and two Xeon E5-2650v2's). As I was installing a few SAS HBA's, a 10GB Ethernet card and preparing for future NVME drives, it struck me. Each of the PCIe slots is labeled with which CPU the lanes are attached to. Two slots (16x...

    PCIe SSDs Will Overtake SATA in 2019

    A recent report from Digitimes claims that PCIe SSDs could finally overtake SATA SSD shipments in 2019. Unit prices for 512GB PCIe SSDs have supposedly fallen 11% sequentially, down to a price of $55 in Q1 2019, while SATA SSD prices only dropped 9%. The price gap between the different SSDs was...

    New MicroSD Standard Comes with PCIe and NVMe

    The SD Association just announced a new microSD standard that should dramatically speed up the flash memory cards. MicroSD Express, as they call it, uses a single lane of PCIe 3.1 and the NVMe 1.3 protocol to hit transfer speeds of up to 985MB/s. While your average consumer NVMe SSD eats far...

    Wifi Card Compatibility

    Hi, I have a question about the compatibility of the Acer Aspire R3-131T with the Intel Wireless AC 9560 wifi card mini pcie chipset. I am wondering if the wifi card can work with this laptop. The old wifi card is the Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 3165. Thanks for helping me with this issue!

    MSI GT75 + 2*970 pr0's in RAID setup, good idea?

    I currently have 1 NVME card installed in my rig, it's the PM961. After comparing the numbers between it, and the 970 pro, I can only fathom running 2 970 pro's in RAID. However this will be the first time I have a raid setup. Do you think there's anything better than what I proposed...

    PCIE x16 vs x8 still a thing?

    So I'm thinking of consolidating some rigs at my place just to simplify things a bit. Right now I'm debating on either keeping my 1) x99 5930k system with SLI 2x Titan Xp (x16+x16) or 2) maybe swapping in parts from my x470 HTPC 2700x + SLI 2x Titan Xp (x8+x8) Older with more PCIE lanes or...

    Cooling Suggestions for LSI SAS card? (LSI 9207-8i)

    I recently had an LSI 9211 SAS card die on me and i'm fairly sure it's because cooling was inadequate. Despite the whole internet telling me they need decent airflow, I decided to chance it in a tiny case (U-NAS NSC-800) with limited airflow. So while a replacement (LSI 9207-8i) is en route, i'm...

    Is anyone actually running a U.2 drive(s)?

    I was just reading some forum posts here on [H] about M.2 mobo slots possibly being slower than an M.2 on a PCIE card and started poking around on my mobo and remembered I had these U.2 sockets on there. U.2 was supposed to be the new hotness but I don't see anyone ever mention these things and...

    Gigabyte GV-N75TOC-2GI on 350W power supply with 4 pin Molex to 6 pin PCI-E adapter, is it safe?

    I have a Gigabyte GV-N75TOC-2GI that I have to use with a proprietary 350W 80+ White power supply (see this thread), the issue is that the graphics card specifications indicates that it requires at least a 400W power supply, it also has a 6 pin PCI-E power connector, and the power supply doesn't...

    Crosshair VI Hero problem with PCIe slots

    New Asus Crosshair VI Hero mobo with v1201 (latest) BIOS. My graphics card is in the PCIEX16_1 slot as usual. I have two identical 4-port USB3 PCIe adapter cards (NEC Renesas controller) that I want to run in the other PCIE slots. If I put either of these in the second large slot PCIEX8_2, it...

    Can I run 2 x GPU and 2 x m.2 on Ryzen with x370

    So I've been trying to research if I can do this. I don't think I am understanding how PCIe lanes work with CPU/Chipset I don't intend to go SLI, but in my current setup I have a 750ti as a PhysX GPU (yes, I know, it's *mostly* useless but hey, it helped a lot in Arkham series) and a 1070 as...

    Flexible PCIe risers

    A lot of new case designs are using flexible PCIe risers, and for a good reason. They allow for flexibility when placing the GPU, enabling much more efficient layouts. There are many different risers out there, so I thought it would be helpful to have a thread where we can collect information...

    PCIe sharing IRQ's??? - I'm guessing?

    I have an Asus P8B75-V motherboard. My GPU is using the PCIe x16 3.0 slot. I installed a 3ware 9650se in the PCIx x16 2.0 slot and it didn't work. Contacted Asus and they told me that only a graphics card would work in that 2.0 slot. Apparently I can only use the two slots for the same purpose...
