Re: [vfio-users] Mobo reccommendations/suggestions ?

Others may have different opinions, but I've been hearing over and over that X79/X99 and the expensive CPUs are the only way to be 100% sure that passthrough will work correctly. I know I've had my i7-4790K on three different motherboards, and the *best case* so far has been that all the CPU-controlled PCIe slots get passed or not as a single unit.

I'm still just lurking and reading, though, so others may know better.

Known to have issues from personal experience (all PCIe slots one ACS group):
Gigabyte Z97X-UD5H
Asus Z97A-USB3.1

Hello everyone.

Unfortunate and unneeded intro (skip this if ur in a hurry):

I had just got a vt-d cpu (i7 3770) and a 32gb ram kit to start working, when I realized that my asrock z77 cpu socket has several dreadfully bent pins on the corner that prevent the extra ram from working. I learnt there have been many people experiencing this problem on this particular board. Anyway I can either cut to 16gb or get a new mobo.

Important part:

If i decide to replace the mobo, which one would you reccommend as givingĀ  the least problems for devices passthrough?

Aside from those supporting the high end CPUs like xeon e5 which im not planning to buy.
Preferably i'd stay with the i7 3770 ive just got, though i could send it back within 30 days, if necessary.

Thanks, Looking forward to read your responses.
