Linux should really have no issue with multiple audio devices... I know I've done this with half a dozen sound 'outputs' due to monitors, onboard, DAC, and USB speakers (at least) and had it all work.
That one might do the trick, I don't know. FWIW, the Asus ROG Zenith II Extreme has the same problem as the Gigabyte board I have according to posters in my Phoronix thread.Maybe I'll try the MSI x570.
It's not the fact that they are multiple audio devices that is the problem. The problem is a little more complicated.Linux should really have no issue with multiple audio devices...

yank the cord, hit the power button a few times to drain the mobo/psu caps and then plug it in and try again.Hmm.
Shut down the computer last night before bed.
Come home from work today, went to power it on, and nothing.
Like it's not even plugged in.
Haven't done any real troubleshooting yet, but a cursory glance shows nothing out of order.
Nothing burnt, no water leaks, nothing.
Just no power.
I really don't have time for this shit right now. I really just need to encode old family camcorder videos for when the fam visits...
Really frustrating. Not even sure where to start troubleshooting. Might test the PSU.

if you have spare psu just hook it up outside/beside the case and only power the essentials.Yep. tried that.
No such luck.
Main RGB LED briefly lights up and then immediately off again when plugged in after being disconnected for a little bit, but still refuses to power on.
I've tried disconnecting all non-essentials leaving only main motherboard connector, EPS connectors and GPU power plugged in. Still no luck
Trying to dig up another mother board and CPU and mount a cooler on it so I can troubleshoot the psu
I don't have anything else I trust on the threadripper.if you have spare psu just hook it up outside/beside the case and only power the essentials.
That's not a RAID card, its a bifurication card. Basically it allows you to stuff 4 nvme onto one card using 16 lanes split up into 4/4/4/4, 4 lanes for each nvme. Now with it setup, you can then choose to run a RAID 0/etc if you want. On topic the Designaire is probably the best value if you use the two add in cards, titan ridge and the aic card.I ended up going with a 3960x on the Gigabyte TRX40 Designare for the 5 pcie slots, thunderbolt card. Ended up getting a fusion io 3.2 gb ssd instead of using the ssd raid card.
Very interesting board.I am looking at the MSI PRO TRX40 PRO 10G: https://www.newegg.com/msi-trx40-pro-10g/p/N82E16813144277
I like the PCIe slots, 5 of them, the 10G card as well as a 2x nvme card that comes with it. Bought a 64gb ram kit and currently testing out the modules on my other machine ( so far they are hitting XMP 3466mhz timings on a 3900x at 1.35v, rated speed)
Reviews are just scaced for most Trx40 motherboards including this one.
Have not gotten the board yet or CPU, most likely next month. It would be with Windows, I am re-introducing myself back on Linux (Linux Mint) on another machine and I really like how Linux has Progressed. Looking at possibly getting an Optane drive for the OS, the board supports the Intel 905P series:Very interesting board.
Please, keep us updated re stability, overclock (CPU and RAM), use (rendering, gaming, etc.)
Are you using it with Fedora 31 or Windows?
Hi noko,Have not gotten the board yet or CPU, most likely next month.

The second M.2 slot some sort of 2TB SSD, not sold on PCIe 4.0 drives as a performance noticeable enhancement at this time. The 2x NVME card will most likely also will be used for 2 drives, maybe my current 2tb Intel 660P drive initially.

- Expensive as hell but the much lower latencies and much better longevity for writes makes this enticing, use that in the top most slot that can handle a 22110 M.2 drive
The two Vega FE's and probably the 5700XT (if the drivers cooperate) later to be updated. 1080 Ti or both if AMD drivers suck ass between gaming and 3d stuff. The 1x PCIE 4.0 slot will most likely not be used. One reason for the Vega FE's over the 1080Ti's is that they are blower cards including the 5700XT. This build I would closely look at what Nvidia has for Titan RTX Ampere, price etc. later this year or next. Also depends what AMD can provide gaming wise, I am not sold at all on AMD professional cards, Nvidia just wipes the floor dealing with Professional drivers which game as well. Just have to evaluate the options when they become available.
Some of the rather short and lack luster reviews, such as Buildzoid brief overview seem to not understand use of PCIe Riser cables that make potentially all PCIe slots available, plus feature set differences also stem from being purely ATX versus EATX. He is right about the rather anemic USB back plate but onboard that can be expanded. My case has 2 USB 2 and 2 USB 3 plus one USB C which this board can supply:
- Go to 21:30 for the MSI board, once video plays or if you looked at this video before, the link will start from the wrong location or where you left off, irritating. I would expect it to always start at link location but that is not the case.
Weighing the storage capacity and price of NVME over Optane sure makes one wonder why bother with Optane at this time.Hi noko,
Thank you for the additional details.
Those optanes are too expensive right now, I'll wait for them to go down before getting one. I may start with a bunch of cheap NVME (I never though I would ever have said that one year ago).
I saw the Buildzoid TR3 mobo overview too, and completely missed the potential of this MSI board. I've never built a system with an MSI board, but I guess there is always a first time for everything.
Like you, I also consider to getting a 5700 XT, like the MSI MECH OC with a water-block from Alphacool.
Still in planning mode... crazy idea is to build a double system in the Phanteks Enthoo 719, with the TR3 and my gaming m-ITX. The m-ITX would still be the gaming system, while the TR3... well... to be there just because it is cool, nerdy, and challenging to do. In a custom double water loop.
This would drain my back account... so overkilling!
Also might be prudent to wait a year and get a newer better Optane. $600 can buy a lot of NVME drives with a hell a lot of storage vice 480gb, have to look at use case which at present I have zero . Yes ideally first slot, OS, 380gb M.2 or 480gb U.2 with adaptor cable and second slot a 2TB NVME.Well, you only need one. Generally you'd also want a second drive regardless of what you use for the OS.
All true (sadly).Weighing the storage capacity and price of NVME over Optane sure makes one wonder why bother with Optane at this time.
Due to current market conditions, manufacturing shutdowns in China and spreading - Stock Market tanking. I see in the near future shortages for computer parts that would include AMD CPU's. AMD/Nvidia GPU's as well. I don't recommend draining a bank account for a new system unless you have a great reason for it. The current paralyses may continue to spread, While Tim Cook from Apple says China Manufacturing plants are coming back online, initial stages, also means a ripple effect in the supply line for many items needed to make a number of things. So now is the time to buy if justified and one has the means to. Also Tim Cook maybe trying to keep Apple stock from tanking more. So much for Global economy. Too bad Global Foundary decided not to go to 7nm production. They would not be able to fill all the orders, charge ridiculous amounts, build 3x more Foundries and still sell out. Still other parts from resistors, capacitors, inductors and a number of of items needed to make computer related stuff would still stop manufacuturing.
SSD's are going out of stock fast at Newegg, notice that in the last couple of days. So I ordered a PCIe 4 Sabrent 1TB drive. Should make a decent system drive.All true (sadly).
Only point to add is that this is the best time to purchase PC goodies before the end of the buffer stock from distributors and manufacturer. Once the manufacture and distribution is back, prices would stay high for long.
I do tons of multitasking with many PCs altogether, so if something fails on me I need redundant machines to take-on.
