  1. OK I'll try that, but unfortunately I don't have any PC's here where I can try it in. But have one other slot on the Gigabyte mobo which I can try.
  2. Bought a Fujitsi network card (Fujitsu Siemens D3045-A11 GS 1 Quad Port Full Profile) which has a Intel® I350-AM4 Gigabit Ethernet Controller and installed it in the PCIEX4 slot on my Gigabyte H370M D3H GSM motherboard but somehow this card isn't showing up in my IOMMU groups. When I plug in a cable into one of the ports into my switch it does recognise it, meaning the led light up. So not sure what I'm missing here. It should work I guess when I put that card into the PCIEX4 slot of my Gigabyte mojo, correct? Attached diagnostics below firefly-diagnostic
  3. Still happy with the case and build myself. Cannot give much comments on the parts you picked, but the pcpartpicker website is great to make sure your components are compatible with each other. Only thing I discovered, and that was a bit of given due to the drive cages, is that the last WD Elements 10TB disc I shucked doesn't have any screw holes in the middle of the sides and so due to how the drive cages are constructed that meant I could only secure the disk with two screws instead of four. There is this part at the Fractal Design web site, but is no longer available
  4. For unRAID a lot of folks on here recommend the HP Mellanox connext 10 gbe SFP+ cards as these work out-of-the-box. That card also works on Windows. You should be able to find some for sale on eBay.
  5. In some cases, you’ll also have to tape off pin 3 of a shucked drive, check if it shows up in your BIOS after reboot, if not you’ll probably need to do it. In fact if that’s needed you can tape off the first three pins, as pin 1 & 2 aren’t used. Had to do that myself with a 10TB WD Elements disc recently which contained a HGST Helium disc, labelled as a white label WD RED. Saved me about 95€ compared to a WD RED back in February.
  6. No problem. My setup goes to sleep whenever there's no activity for an hour and the disks are spun down. You can definitively also conserve some energy as unRAID never spins up disks which I doesn't need and hence the reason a SSD cache drive is really handy. Yeah SpaceInvader One has a lot of interesting videos regarding unRAID which helped me out on some questions I had.
  7. Was able to boot with the CPU installed, and then update the BIOS. First I was planning to install Nextcloud and co. on the unRAID server, but since it goes in sleep mode whenever possible I'm opting not to do that as then off course Nextcloud and co. can no longer be reached. In sleep everything is off, except the LEDs on the network port, and then the system only draws 3W from the socket so that's pretty impressive. Updating the parity drive went well, didn't have any issue with it. Followed the excellent video from SpaceInvader One on how to swap a parity drive.
  8. Sorry for the late reply, seems somehow notifications were off on my own thread ☺️ Actually going for a SATA SSD instead of a M.2 SSD was about the only ‘mistake’ I made, looking back at my first build ever. It was all @testdasi his fault 😁 No in all seriousness he helped me a lot as you can see in the thread, as otherwise I would have made a lot more mistakes. But that decision not is lost one, as I plan to build a small always-on server hosting Nextcloud, Bitwarden, Pi-Hole, Homebridge, ... and then the SSD will move to that new small server and will be replaced by M.2 one, wh
  9. So no iGPU. Can't help with would be the best option if you're on a budget but I'm sure somebody else will can help on this.
  10. Energy cost is something to think about yes 🙃 Nowhere nearly have the build you’re aiming for, but in my case I was curious to what kind of wattage my build pulled out of the wall. Well I was surprised it was actually not bad at all, in regular usage between 24 and 44 Watt depending on what is currently running. And in sleep mode, which is during the most part of the work week the server consumes 3 Watt.
  11. Forget what I said, put in the wrong memory (64 GB sticks instead of 8 GB) 🙂 pcp now says 680W with 20 disks, mobo, CPU’s and memory so that seems save.
  12. Think if you put everything in pcpartpicker how far you want to expand with 20 drives that the PSU will not sufficient for that build. When I put in those parts in pcpartpicker, it just is above 1000W and off course as you know it’s better to have some margin there.
  13. Two factor authentication would certainly be a welcome addition.
