I’ve got a spare gpu. I wonder if I could throw it into the VM host and replace my gaming rig with an Apple TV and Steam Link.

Currently attempting just that. Wish me luck.

So you actually have to put the GPU into the PCIe slot where there’s a CPU installed and I just lost half an hour of my life.

As expected I need an HDMI dummy. Let’s see how fast this random eBay seller ships. Until then, I have a spare monitor connected to the GPU.


It feels very wrong seeing this on an actual screen

It works! Now the only issue is the missing airflow. The GPU is sitting right next to a PERC H330, and the server is not built for anything hot in the PCIe slots. Not a single fan near that area.
