technodanvan 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.

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.

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.

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.

Simmons572 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.

technodanvan 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.

That's what I'll be using as well. It's in an open four-post rack, so I might cut a few holes in the side to give them a bit of room to breathe. I think for one GPU I'll be fine without doing that, but maybe if I jump on another one next month I'll break it down for surgery. I have a Zotac 1050ti lying around doing nothing as well, so I suppose I can throw that in there just so I can get a reference for how hot it may run.

For reference, I have two EVGA FTW cards, and they run a little toasty. The top one sits around 65 C at 90-100% fan speed.
Thanks for the reference!

Edit: Second 1070ti on the way. Next weekend should be fun. Looks like the Rosewill 4U wouldn't be able to handle three cards given the motherboard configuration, contemplating just getting a cheapish full tower to move everything into.
