    Why are you posting in this thread??

    LOL I should have them pony up 100.00 dollars for the server upgrade. Thanks for the fan info, will take a look at the Arctic Freezer coolers. I don't use plex. Kodi through my network. Picture taken behind my seating on a 110" screen. Picture quality, 4k

    I'm loving this board/ram. Excellent results. I went with an E2278G from Provantage. No complaints. For cooler, I chose the Arctic Freezer 33 and added a second 120mm fan. It just clears the RAM and just clears my 4U Supermicro chassis lid. Provides a good amount of cooling. Very quiet. With having a bunch of users, I would recommend getting a Plex pass so you can take advantage of HW transcoding with igpu (QuickSync); it's amazing.

    Tell everyone using your Plex server to pony up $10 for unlimited access to your Plex libraries and buy a Plex Pass. Then you can use hardware (iGPU) transcoding and be rocking a dozen streams or so with little load on the CPU. 😀

    Thanks Hoopster. I brought the other quotes from Good Deals thread over here to try and keep that thread somewhat on topic. The reason I would get the bigger Noctua cooler is for the reason my server is in the attic. My temps during a parity check have never gone over 42c for my drives and with a larger cooler for cpu I would hope to not add any more heat inside. I live in TX and things do get HOT here but my attic is very well insulated keeping the outside temps from invading the attic space. Even though I have recorded temps in the mid-high 90's F up there.

    With CPU (software) transcoding, the CPU will handle 7-8 simultaneous 1080P streams. Software transcoding is based on passmark score and the E-2288G has a passmark score of 17,316. Plex recommends 2000 passmarks per 1080P stream and unRAID needs about 2000 for system overhead. You could comfortably get 7 simultaneous 1080P Plex streams and may be able to push it to 8 if nothing else is happening on the server.

    I think it should still be enough. In most cases, the CPU is consuming less than 100W. Noctua claims it can consume up to 230W (that seems high) at Turbo speeds. In this review of the E-2288G, STH states the maximum observed wattage consumed by the processor is 151W and that was in performance (Turbo) mode. At this moment, my UPS claims the server is using 144W and the CPU has 10 of the 16 cores maxed out (but at non-Turbo speed). I am using a 600W SFX power supply. Granted, you have a lot more drives than I do, but, HDDs don't require a ton of wattage.

    @Harro I had the same case clearance issue as kaiguy; my case limits cooler height to 146mm. Right now I have a Noctua NH-U9S CPU cooler (125mm height) but I wish I could use something bigger. The E-2288G runs very hot at Turbo Boost speeds. With the Noctua NH-U9S or the Be Quiet Shadow Rock TF2 I had before, keeping the CPU in the mid-80C range while under sustained turbo load is an accomplishment. For the 24x7 Boinc loads I have had it running for a couple of months now, I ended up disabling Turbo Boost and the CPU has never exceeded 55C in that time. For running tasks such as HandBrake transcoding (I have my system configured to use QSV for that), I can keep the CPU in the mid 70s. Without QSV, it will go up to mid 80s. This processor really loves to consume wattage and produce heat at sustained turbo speeds.

    I have this motherboard and cpu combo, but was severely limited by case clearance. So I purchased a lower-profile Noctua that does an adequate job but still gets pretty darn hot at full load. If I could have chosen any cooler, I would have gone with the Noctua NH-D15.

    I have a USB HDD in unassigned devices which I use for backups. The drive won't spin down for whatever reason, mounted or not. My solution was a modified version of this script that I have User Scripts run every hour. It takes a list of drives, checks for activity and spins them down if they're inactive and spun up. I thought I'd share it. NOTE: The green "led" in Unassigned Devices stays green even when the drive's spun down, I don't know how or if it detects power status. #!/bin/bash # This script looks for recent disk access, and if nothing has changed, puts /dev/disk/by-id/${drive} into spindown mode. # # Set your drive identifiers (listed in /dev/disk/by-id/) ignoring characters after the last "-" # e.g. listing: usb-WD_My_Passport_25E2_75831314363630505A37-0:0 # becomes: usb-WD_My_Passport_25E2_75831314363630505A37 drives=( "<DRIVE_IDENTIFIER_1>" "<DRIVE_IDENTIFIER_2>" ) # Set the directory where drive status files will be stored. # /tmp/ would be standard but that may wake the array # so maybe somewhere under /mnt/cache is better status_dir="/tmp" current=`date` DEBUG="false" # create status_dir if it doesn't exist mkdir -p ${status_dir} for device_id in ${drives[*]} do device=`ls -l /dev/disk/by-id/ | grep ${device_id} | head -1 | tail -c4` filename="${status_dir}/diskaccess-${device_id}.status" stat_new=`cat /sys/block/${device}/stat | tr -dc "[:digit:]"` if [ -f "${filename}" ]; then stat_old=`cat ${filename} | tr -dc "[:digit:]"` if [ "${stat_old}" == "${stat_new}" ]; then if [ ${DEBUG} == "true" ]; then echo ${current} "- Executing: smartctl --nocheck standby -i /dev/${device} | grep 'Power mode is'" power_mode=`smartctl --nocheck standby -i /dev/${device} | grep 'Power mode is'` echo ${current} "- ${power_mode}" fi is_awake=`smartctl --nocheck standby -i /dev/${device} | grep 'Power mode is' | egrep -c 'ACTIVE|IDLE'` if [ "${is_awake}" == "1" ]; then echo ${current} "- Drive /dev/${device} is awake but hasn't been used; spinning down" hdparm -y /dev/${device} > /dev/null 2>&1 fi else echo ${current} "- Drive /dev/${device} has been used..." echo ${stat_new} > ${filename} fi else echo ${current} "- ${filename} file does not exist; creating it now." echo ${stat_new} > ${filename} fi done

    If you're having issues with your pfSense only seen 1 port, then do the following. 1) If you're looking for a guide go click here. 2) Once you are in part 3 of the SpaceInvader video to edit the XML do the follow: A. Remove the following code, the 'interface'. B. Go to the bottom section and make sure the BUS and the SLOT is the same for the 4 'pci' ports as the 'pci' from the FIRST port. C. ADD "multifunction='on'" to the FIRST PCI (port). D. Make sure the Functions starting with 0, go in increasing number. Example 0,1,2,3.

    Looks like you skipped over the part about downloading the xml, then putting it on your array first.

    Are you really truly sure that statement is accurate? Did you check the headers on the MB?

    Hello Advanced Member 😉 The usual advice is to set the Minimum for each user share to larger than the largest file you expect to write to the share. Unraid has no way to know in advance how large a file will become when it chooses a disk for the file. If a disk has less than Minimum, it will choose another disk. Note that doesn't mean the space will not be used. Here are some examples: A share has 10G Minimum, a disk has 11G free. The disk can be chosen. You write a 9G file to the disk. It now has 2G free, which is less than Minimum, so the disk won't be chosen again. A share has 10G Minimum, a disk has 11G free. The disk can be chosen. You write a 12G file. The write fails when the disk runs out of space.

    Research "rclone copy" and/or "rclone sync" commands. Typically, "rclone mount" is really optimized only for reads, not so much writes.

    Glad it worked. It's a nice little board.

    Also decoding is now support in plex, so absolutely no reason to modify anything to get it working.

    Here you go! Yes! I've already made a Poweredge one, it is available in the selection: Tricky! This is a work in progress based on a image i found off google. Is this approximately what you're after?

    Sorry it has been a while since I made this post but life has been getting in the way of playing with this new setup. I was recently asked a question about the Asrock board and I tried to answer as best I could and thought I would pate that answer here in case anyone else was curious. As stated in this reply if anyone has questions I will do my best to answer but I am no expert, just someone who like to play. So far (only really been running it for a week now) everything is looking very nice. I currently have multiple dockers (Unmaniac, unifi controller, tatulli, ombi, sickchill, radarr, nextcloud, and a few others, Plex will be migrated to it in the soonish future) as well as a VM with a 980 passed through to it, and one more lightweight VM running True Command for freenas and it has not faltered...yet, again it has only been a week. I did have problems getting the Gaming VM to start with the 980 and its audio passed through. I currently have an old amd card in slot one and the 980 in slot 3 (both full x16) which I did not want. I wanted only the 980 in slot one and no other vid card to save on the PCIe slots. In the end I had to add a line to a config file for the 980 to pass through. In the future I will probably try and make it work with just the one card again. As for the board I was a little concerned with the power phases as a lot of other boards have 16 and if I recall this one has 8, but so far no issue at all, and I don't plan to do any big overclocks as I want stability so should not be an issue. After I bought the board Wendell at Levelone techs did a review on it and set aside a lot of my worries. I will put the video at the bottom. I am by no means an expert in any of this, just some one who likes to play around so if there are more questions I will do my best to answer, but I may not always be right as a heads up.

    I found this topic after searching more ways : I will review and play with that method of allocating PCI devices instead.

    @fonzie Do you not think that Ubuntu one is a little small.....
