  1. What I really need is a super silent solution to cool the hard disks. I am going to continue researching on how to actively water cool hard drives in sandwich setup (1 heatsink for every 2 drives) without compromising space. Need the hard disks to be cooler than they are.
  2. I love this! I didn't know it existed. Should have to the plans on here first. It is working ok for now, although I think this pump/controller combo unit could be pretty handy when I move things into a rack mounted solution ... which is the obvious next step. I can imagine it now.. external radiator and pump set up with a silent passive external PSU and pipes going through a PCI slot at the back of the case. wowzers! Thanks a lot for sharing this with me. Water cooling is making me more excited than doing the rack build itself haha
  3. It really is. 50Kg is 110lbs in American. Thats a XSPC water temp monitor with a digital display. My MB does not have a temp sensor, so I put an external one in there. I am trying to figure out fan control still. It would have been great to do a fan curve according to water temp, but thats not possible at this time so I am just using the CPU for everything in the Dynamic Auto Fan plugin.
  4. Finally got this monster up and running after weeks of finding the right parts new and used. It took a while but I am now there. This super beefy machine now has excellent cooling, super silent and currently runs everything I need with room to spare. Specs: Ryzen 3900 65w TDP 32GB DDR4 3000Mhz Quadro P600 LSI 8I SAS with expander for 16 HDDs + 6 from mobo (active cooled mod) 1TB NVME cache 256GB NVME on PCI-e 1x MSI Gaming pro motherboard x470 650W PSU Quad Port Intel Nic for isolating VMs 10GB SFP+ Nic for main connection
  5. I have a very loud seagate desktop drive in the array. This is so loud that it causes the whole system to vibrate and also makes a humming noise when idle that i can hear in the next room. It is also the parity drive unfortunately. Anyhoo, I have a drive within the array that I would like to replace it with. It is a WD red and will do the trick. If you see my configuration, I want to replace Parity Drive with Disk 3. Image attached. I have seen instructions on how to do this on the wiki here: I am going to be u
  6. Thats contrary to what I have researched. I have seen the 3900 overclocked to 3900x speeds on some youtube videos. Anyhoo, i will not overclock as advised. I will keep it safe. If I need to upgrade, I have a 3950x I can install on the motherboard.
  7. I would agree, it is totally related to browser. The simple fix that @trurl suggested worked immediately. @trurlthanks again. Did you try another browser?
  8. I am fortunate enough to get a Ryzen 3900 CPU which is rated at just 65w however it can be overclocked to perform like a 3900x. I am just wondering if anyone here has done overclocking of their CPU for Unraid? Is it stable? Its not like windows where you get a BSOD so now totally sure what happens in Unraid for anything that gets messed up. I obvs want to ensure all data and VMs do not get impacted in the slightest, so perhaps a slight overclock might be ok? Just looking for thoughts here. The need for this is so my VMs perform better than they do. I have Blue Iris r
  9. thanks guys. kudos to you for all your help and support. You are what makes unraid great!
  10. Yes it does. I have a Ryzen CPU so I installed the Nvidia driver. All seems to be working fine. Just one thing is confusing me still as there has been a mention of kernels being overwritten. Once this plugin is installed, after all the pre-requisites discussed above. It wont continue to get overwritten every time unraid starts yes? Once this plugin is installed, its permanent? Just checking, please be patient with me Ali
  11. Thank you for this. According to your statement on your first post, it seems like this plugin is not needed if we install the nvidia driver by itself. "6.9.0 Beta35 and up no longer require a kernel build, but now require the Nvidia plugin by @ich777." So just to give you some background. I upgraded the OS yesterday to 6.9.0 stable and then proceeded to install nVidia driver plugin. Everything works well so far, I can see hardware acceleration working well. The GPU stats is the only thing that is now missing. What you are suggesting now is that we
  12. Spot on. works in FF. Cleared cache and it works in chrome now also. Thanks so much. Such a simple solution. Salute!
  13. Sorry, I dont see it there, can you please point it out with a screenshot?
