    That could certainly be useful ! I have some experience in ubuntu. The GPU's will not be connected to a monitor, will test whether or not they fold at full speed without a dongle/adapter. If they do not then I will get some HDMI dummy adapters.

      Mainly knowing how to run, start and stop programs without the user interface. Although folding can still be controlled from a Windows machine via HFM.net on the same network.

      How the dickens do I multiquote without copy pasting? I never used dummy adapters on my second GPU, but the main is still connected to a monitor through a KVM switch. I will PM the notes over after I read through them a bit.

        Ah, okay. I run my folding rig without any display attached, but I remote in using AnyDesk so I can still control everything more or less traditionally. I haven't thought about how having a display attached or not might affect folding performance, that's something interesting to think about.

            If the system is truly headless, you will have to do a bit of Xorg hackery to be able to control fans and clocks with no display server running.

            The GPUs will fold at full speed (in the P2 state) without any dummy adapters. To make things easier, I would recommend having the primary GPU hooked up to a monitor at least through install and testing. Things are a little more complicated if this is going to be a truly headless machine but not impossible.

            There are some gains, since there is zero display overhead if you are truly running headless with no display server.

                Well that is good to know that I do not have to worry with dummy adapters, one less thing to worry about. Hooking a monitor may be difficult to one of the folding GPU's but I will end up doing all the work/config through the iGPU.

                • Hello all,

                  Small update just in case anyone was wondering. This project is still live. The only delay right now is we going through the process of moving, as such right now there is no space for me to reliably set up the CFP. Rest assured that once I am moved in, this will go live. Unfortunately this will be the 3rd house purchase attempt we have been through. First one had too many issues so we had to pull out. The second one was just about to finish, but the sellers pulled out as Covid hit (Thanks Covid). Now we are on our third attempt which fingers crossed is going to go through, so far so good.

                  Just wanted to give an update on this

                  Thanks
                  all

                  • Thanks for the update!
                    Good luck with the attempt, I hope it'll work out.
                    I can't wait to see the CFP rig putting out some points 💪😎

                      Good luck with the attempt, I hope it'll work out.
