but if i have a regular IR2 pipe with the original ge14-4 and dg5-2, i could load it with 4 rm10-256s and it would work? or do i need a new GE as well?
and if i have a second pipe that is ir2, it wouldnt be effected at all right?
sorry i just got my first onyx2 - this is all pretty new to me
If your Onyx2 has the rackmount graphics module you can run two pipes <unless you have the DPLEX option installed in both, the pipes are completely separate, so you can run one IR2 and one IR3 if you like>. As long as you have the room <and RM10s at the lowest price I've ever seen>, there's a pretty significant performance boost to running an IR3 pipe with four RM10s:
Or if you want to run two IR3 pipes and Plex them, I have two spare DG5-2/DPLEX option boards with all of the connection cabling.
well right now i have 1 IR2 pipe with 2 RM7-64s, and one with 2 RM7-16s
my thought would be to make the big pipe an IR3 with rrm10-256s, and move the 2 rm7-64s into the second pipe
right now they both have dg5-2s, but i have a dg5-8 on the way (luck ass bid on ebay)
if i made one ir3 and the other i2, i wouldnt be able to plex them would i?
