RE: LEDs - When I first built this system & was in Win10 to do the TB3 card activation, I used the Gigabyte utility to play around with the LED settings. I set it to slowly cycle through all the colors while it was in sleep & power-off state. I'll have to switch back over to my Win10 drive and test to disable the LEDs in sleep & off mode & then let you know. In the meantime, I do remember the discussion in another thread. Someone (maybe you?) mentioned that the issue of LEDs not turning off in sleep/power-off mode might be tied to a having a fan connected to a certain MB header...?? If you get that sorted out, please do report back!
RE: TB Audio Interface: I run ProTools | HD (with an HD Native PCIe card) in a different machine, and don't have a TB interface to test. I have a TB2 PCIe chassis & if time permits, I could maybe test that. But not sure how valid a test it would be, as I think your inquiry is more about a true TB interface (like the UA ones).
RE: #3 - I'm with you - I think I was following @Stork > MyHero II build guide, and that's what he chose. In the past, the nvram issue was (i think) key to successful build with NVIDIA GPUs... but we may need to get a little feedback from him re: benefits of choosing this option when no NVIDIA card.
Congrats on the speed & power upgrade to you as well!!
I will investigate more about the LEDs and report if I find a solution. Yes, the MB header idea was mentioned by OP. I only have the cpufan connected to the MB itself. The other ones are connected directly to PSU so I didn't know what to do with that answer. I guess I could completely disable the LED's but it is the revival of the Lavalamp. Mmmm
I haven't decided to go TB on my next audio interface yet but it certainly gives more options since I need atleast 24x24 ins and outs. I have a LaCie USB3/TB2 drive though but i'm not sure if it's a good idea to get a TB3>TB2 adapter for that since I don't know if it actually improves the write/read speed since it's not a SSD. Also a bit worried about how well it will be recognised during startup because of the "TB hotswap problems".
Ah so the NVRAM is only/mainly for NVIDIA users? I thought it also played a part for other things. Like if I have a system crash/reboot, it can keep the crashlog in memory despite the powerdown, among other things? @Stork too.
Thanks a lot.
