  1. I am now trying to get W2k19 Datacenter working with hyper-v nested. I've been trying different configurations for the past two days and so far this is the only one to work. It's just a starting point as I now have to get passthrough going, it's going to get the GTX and a dedicated NIC. <?xml version='1.0' encoding='UTF-8'?> <domain type='kvm' id='15'>

  2. Now that I have a second CPU why should I let it go alone without a GPU occupying a pci channel. Here I am testing out a 2nd and 3rd GPU. This allows me to use the R7 240 as the boot display and leaving the Nvidia for transcoding and gaming. I soon learned I could not get the system to idle less than 200W according to the APC UPS. The GTX 1050 being a 75w part and the 1660ti a 120w part I thought I would be better off with the 1050, but I was wrong. At idle they were both pretty low on power consumption but under load the story was different. The higher power 1660ti would actually use less power for the same work load. I was playing games at a 4k resolution and the 1050 just couldn't keep up.
  3. Pictured here is the second of two 6132 Gold CPUs. I picked up a pair of CPUs in various conditions for cheap on ebay. One had a dent on the corner and one had a scratch on a pin. Both I took a chance on them since I would be saving half of what they would cost in decent condition on the condition the seller would allow me to return them if they fail burn-in. After several days of continuous use and deep heat cycles they performed flawlessly and consistent.
  4. Why are my cpu cores listed/grouped this way?

  6. Hello, I have been looking for a way to migrate away from my dead Acer Easyshare + Xpenology that I built some time ago. Being built on an Atom with 2GB I only used it for as a shared drive as my daily driver is a Lenovo M900 SFF with an i7-6700. At my workplace I manage a virtualized environment and I wanted to see if I could easily redeploy xpenology as a VM and make my migration a lot less painful. I have a VMUG subscription and was planning on deploying VMware on testing machine that I used for development which doesn't get a lot of usage. I started doing research when I came across Unraid and it had all the features I needed and way more, not even to mention lots of great support. The setup is composed of: Unraid 6.8.3 Lenovo S30 Machine Type 0569 E5-2680 @ 2.7ghz 4x 16GB ECC RDIMM AMD Radeon R7 240 1x ADATA 1TB SU800 SSD, 4x WD 6TB HDD Being a workstation with large fans means it has server like features without the noise. I setup Unraid to run as a share for my files, backup for my mac, plex docker, sonarr, handbrake, transmission, minecraft and more to come! Now it's time to deploy Unraid on my main development machine. My Lenovo P920 Running a single Xeon Silver 4208, for now...
  7. Would the SSD support include PCIe based SSD?
  8. I was looking for something to replace a dead Easyshare H340 that runs Syno/XPEnology, I wanted something that runs docker/VMs and works as a NAS/Media Server. I'm floored how much you get with UNRAID as far as features and the community support looks great. I've repurposed a Lenovo S30 workstation that has a E5-2680, an ok amount of memory and 4x 6TB WD HDDs. And now thanks to this thread I'm in the process of migrating my data. I not planning on using it for gaming but I'm interested in GPU transcoding. It has a R7 240 but I'm going to replace it with a GTX 1050 since that what seems to fit my budget and seems to have better support than the AMD cards. Time to watch some spaceinvader videos!
