Wavlink Universal 5K USB-C/A Laptop Docking Station, 4K Dual Video Docking Station 2 x HDMI, 2 x DisplayPort, Gigabit Ethernet, USB C in, 6 x USB 3.0, Audio, Mic, For Windows/Mac, Non power delivery!

Pros: The github displaylink-rpm project has a well packaged set of DisplayLink drivers for this WavLink device that work well with Fedora32 on a Dell Precision 5520 connected via USB-C port. Currently running 2 1900x1600 external monitors without any issues. tested with HDMI to 4K LG monitor USB Bose audio works

Cons: Wish DisplayLink would get the drivers into upstream Linux kernel.

Overall Review: Excellent laptop docking device to support multiple monitors

Most Critical Review

Beefy witha couple of gotchas

ASUS ROG STRIX TRX40-E GAMING sTRX4 AMD TRX40 SATA 6Gb/s ATX AMD Motherboard
ASUS ROG STRIX TRX40-E GAMING sTRX4 AMD TRX40 SATA 6Gb/s ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: AMD 3rd gen Threadripper support memory capacity builtin RGB display is nice and informational (w/ BIOS data)

Cons: Realtek 8125 2.5Gbps NIC driver is not in upstream linux kernel The chipset heatsink is too high and bumps into the GPU and prevents the PCIe slot lock from being engaged Cannot use the first slot closes to CPU with AMD 3960x as CPU cooler start to touch the back of the card. Is an issue with any CPU cooler needed to support a 280W CPU. Only once usable GPU card slot.

Overall Review: So far working well - basic install in place - no overclocking planned (no "quiet cpu coolers" on market as yet for Threadrippers.)

Excellent mult-device keyboard

Pros: Currently connected to Linux laptop via bluetooth, linx desktop via unifying receiver and android tablet via bluetooth. easy connectivty and switchability

Cons: Just wish there was additional height with the legs Bluetooth disconnect/connet is sometime notceable

Overall Review: Good keyboard layout and key travel, useful for a multi-device environment

optical drive installation conundrum

Fractal Design Define 7 Black Brushed Aluminum / Steel E-ATX Silent Modular Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: Excellent case if leveraging NVMe storage only. The overall design adds an immense amount of flexibility

Cons: Simple actions like installing an optical drive become impossible to figure out. Insufficient clarity in docs and support. Support ticket at Fractal disappeared even though I received an email confirmation with a link.

Overall Review: Overkill on flexible chassis reconfiguration for my use case.

ASRock AMD Ryzen Embedded CPU Barebone 4X4 BOX-V1000M SoC Dual GLAN Support Triple Displays Mini / Booksize Barebone System
ASRock AMD Ryzen Embedded CPU Barebone 4X4 BOX-V1000M SoC Dual GLAN Support Triple Displays Mini / Booksize Barebone System

Pros: - NUC form factor - 3x 4k display support - m.2 support - Intel wifi included - Fedora supported

Cons: m.2 is only for 2242/2260 - not very useful -SO-DIMM B channel holder was bent during assembly, once straightened - memory channel worked - front panel PCB interferes with easy access to SO-DIMM install path.

Overall Review: Useful upgrade from a Intel NUC to support multiple 4k displays

Fast shipment,

The shorter rails for Supermicro 1U-2U servers was perfect. Quick easy install and the server went right in.
