Thank you so much for your response and I really appreciate it I don’t mind the delayed response; i’m grateful that you took the time to answer all my questions…I have a bit more for you tho
The GA motherboard on the website says it could support 6 gpus. The reason I thought it could support 7 gpus is that there was news about it on tech sites and on forums. At the end I just bought another mobo that could support 7 gpus to solve the problem. With the new mobo the rig still took time to find the 7th gpu. Do mobos all have difficulties finding the last gpu that doesn’t exceed their limit? Like the GA mobo could support 6 gpus, and so it’ll always have problem finding the 6 th gpu?
The most I got with the GA mobo was 5 gpus. And I almost gave up on installing the 7th gpu even with the new mobo because the rig couldn’t detect it. It only worked after I kept changing the PCIE speed from Gen 1 to Gen 2. does that apply for every motherboards assuming that I set up rig correctly and installed all drivers necessary?
Yes, I’ve increased the virtual memory to 16384mb to 20000mb. I have two 4gb RAM on mobo so there’s 8 gb in total. But I heard Ram doesn’t matter as long as you set the bios correctly right?
The Nvidia driver recognizes all 7 when device manager recognized them. Does it ever go the other way around?
And about the cuda device… what is that actually about? I know that it’s optional to write it in when you’re trying to edit the files on the miner. Besides that I don’t see an option about it on the bios. The information about it on the web is also quite confusing.
Again, words can’t express how grateful i am towards your response. This helped me a lot in understanding the tech stuff that I never took time to learn. Thank you so much
