Well, first 1070ti was received and is now being returned. Sent me a Zotac 1070ti Mini instead of the FE I wanted. Also, it appears my main computer has a faulty 'something' that makes it lock up. Unsure the cause.

When these things happen I tend to get annoyed and buy something better. Trying hard to not look at the 2080ti now. Roughly three times the price for roughly three times the output? Probably makes sense, given the application. Also looking at a Threadripper rig given the work I do at home. Need to wait until after next week at least, right?

Only thing I know for sure will happen is selling my Caselabs S3 to help offset the cost of a new computer. At least that's something that hasn't lost its value.

My Nvidia rig appears to have been taken out by a Windows update. Finally got a monitor hooked up to it, and it looks the BIOS didn't even recognize the drive.

Unplugged it, externally mounted it to my daily driver, confirmed everything worked, plugged it back in, and it was good to go. Not really sure what happened there, but hey, at least it's back online now.

Sounds like a great reason to get that GPU folding in Linux.

What's the easiest distro to get FAH up and running on a Ryzen rig with a pair of nVidia GPUs? Only other thing it would need to run is a Plex server.

Like GUI 'tells me what to do' level of easy. I've used Mint on laptops in the past without issue, but never had to deal with FAH and driver support for it before.

Ubuntu/Mint is pretty easy. I have 18.04 on several systems. Some NV drivers don't come with OpenCL so this will install it:

Code:
sudo apt install ocl-icd-libopencl1
Also the GPUs.txt may not download from Stanford and would need to be saved in /var/lib/fahclient . The GPU ends up not being detected when it doesn't download.

Thanks for the input! I'll give it a shot in the next couple of days.

Got it working, all thanks to me finally reading the very last thing you said here!

So this will just be one 1070Ti for the moment. If/when I add another one, I don't suppose everything will just work without a problem?

Might have to add another slot in FAHControl but no more driver setup or anything like that.

Well I hope it's that simple, though honestly this first setup didn't go all that poorly, considering.

Now working to figure out how to force it to connect to my NAS on boot, then install Plex and get that process going.
