  1. Yes, even with the cheap ArcticFreeze, the CPU keeps approx 10 degrees cooler (according to tests I've read, never tested by myself) and is more quiet than the stock one. For RAM, it depends of the usage of your system. I use 8gb RAM for my VM(s) and the other 8gb for unRAID itself (including docker container; unraid + dockers utilize approx. 5gb RAM in my setup). When using unRAID only as typical NAS, 8gb is fair, but once your system has the power to do more, I'm pretty sure you will do more There's always room for more RAM btw as you mentioned the 6 SATA ports for the H370m-ITX/ac board. When you use the m.2 slot, the first SATA port will be disabled as it uses the same bus. So you are only able to use six internal drives, regardless of 1x m.2 and 5x SATA or no m.2 and 6x SATA. However, this board is the only mITX board which comes with 6 drive ports for a reasonable price - that's why I also chose this one.
  2. Similar to my specs and it just works great. I would go with a WD red (m.2) SSD for cache as it is created for 24/7 and comes with 5yrs guarantee. Same speed (SATA3 6GB/s) by 10-15 EUR more. I also have the 1TB cache, but I've never used more than 300gb so far ("daily use" shares are on my cache prefered, archive has status "yes" for cache usage with daily scheduled mover at midnight). So I'd rather invest the bucks in an additional 8GB RAM stick and go with a 500gb cache. For chilling I use a ArcticFreeze 11 LP topblower (15 EUR). Small and runs by 1100-1300rpm and my CPU has not yet seen a temperature above 50 degree, even when using my Win10VM and playing some games. System overall is absolutely silent, you only can hear the case fans when getting to the Node304 case by 30cm. The ArcticFreeze quite wide, but using the same ASRock H370M-ITX/ac with two RAM sticks and there's still 1mm in between sticks and cooler. @SirReal63running a video with plex / emby / etc. which requires transcoding always pegs the max out of a CPU. With enabling the hardware decoding using iGPU or dedicated GPUs it will reduce CPU power to a minimum. My emby server takes the advantage of the integrated GPU of my i3-8100 an even transcoding two 4k movies in parallel pegs my CPU at not more than 30%. btw. plex / emby also use transcoding when the movie has embedded subtitles and / or your client does not support the audio codec (e.g. DTS or EAC3 with Amazon FireTV Stick).
  3. Thanks for this app! Works quite well even with 6.9.0b22
  4. Hi, is there a way to sync various shares of my array to my external SSD which I have mounted as unassigned devices? Ideally including a script which synchronizes the shares to the SSD automatically on a regular basis (e.g. weekly). The reason is, that I want to have a) a backup solution for my shares I have on the cache drive (prefer option) but also to have some files on array-shares on a "to-go-drive". I thought about using rsync, however I cannot find it in the Apps. Thanks!
  5. I made it working with the following entry under extra Parameters (will show up under advanced view)
  6. That's what I also would very appreciate.
  7. Hi, I also finally solved the problem. I deactivated Hyper-V and installed Win10 directly using the GT1030 without VNC.
  8. Hey, I'm still trying to get Win10 as a VM working on my unraid. I have a Intel IGPU 630 UHD set as primary card in BIOS and is used for Emby Docker hardware transcoding. My secondary card (which I want to passthrough) is a Geforce GT 1030. I'm able to install Windows with VNC as well as the Geforce as secondary card set (incl audio) in the VM. I also use my own dumped vBIOS. The first try, it always seems to work. Once I've installed the Geforce graphic driver, the Geforce gets activated and I have the VNC stream on my Notebook as well as the native output of the Graphicscard on my TV (which is plugged to the unraid server). But once I close the connection and want to switch to the Geforce only without VNC, i only get a blackscreen on my TV. When I now want to switch back to VNC set as primary (or even set to VNC only), all I get is a screen which says "guest has not initialize the display (yet)". With this message, the only option I have is to completely remove the VM incl vdisk and reinstall Windows. Then I'm in the loop and the same procedure starts again. What is my fault?

  9. Thanks, this really helps. one more question came in my mind. I do not plan to use a dedicated video card, but the internal GPU in my CPU (Ryzen 3 3200G). Is it possible to pssthrough the internal GPU to VM‘s? I‘ve read some threads which say it is hardly possible, however these threads have been posted in 2018. i do not plan to use several VM‘s actively in parallel. It‘s more having Windows 10 in a VM to play/stream with my Shadow Account, using Media Clients like Plex, Emby, Sky Go, etc. Or do I need a dedicated video card as the iGPU is been used by the unraid system? //edit: what I have learned is, that iGPU passtrough with AMD does not work really well, if any. Therefore I think it makes sense to add a low-end GPU to my system, e.g. Geforce GT 1030. It is possible to use the (primary) iGPU for unRAID and passtrough the dedicated one to the VM's, isn't it? And it is also possible to use the dedicated with multiple VM's, even not with parallely used VM's, correct? Additionally, I decided not to use a m2 drive but my already available 512gb Samsung 860 Pro SSD for cache. Think that makes sense since the bottleneck will be my Gigabit LAN.
  10. Hi, currently I have my NAS running on a Raspberry Pi 4, but I want to go further and create my own NAS using more performant hardware. With a new NAS, also Unraid comes into the game. However I currently have no clue about RAID or something else, but my current solution utilizing external harddrives is to unsecure regarding any data loss. With a new NAS, I want to have one or two bigger storage drives for my media, pictures and movies. For the relevant data, I also have another backup solution (e.g. iCloud), therefore in case of a broken Drive, I do not really care. Which means, I don't need another mirror / parity solution for these drives. Furthermore I want to have another Drive (2-4gb) which I will use for important data like macOS time machine backups, documents, backups of my other RPi's. To sum it up, I will use these drive for data which really would hurt in case of data loss. Guess I can solve this request by using a parity drive which mirrors this drive? Do I understand that correctly? Or is there a way to utilize a RAID 1-functionality to mirror this drive to another drive to have all data still available in case of a broken hard drive? Will it also be possible to use this drive for docker-images which will be installed on unraid? Secondly, I understood that I have to use a USB pen drive for using unraid, correct? Does this pen drive only store the licence for unraid and the system itself will be installed on a hard drive, e.g. internal M.2 drive? Or will also the full system be installed on the pen drive, which means I'd need a really fast pen drive? If yes, do I also need to install all Plugins, Addons, VM's, etc. on that pen drive or can I utilize one of my drives mentioned above for? I'm also planning to use a small m.2 drive as cache drive. What is a reasonable size? I will not transfer files which are bigger than 20gb individually. I know, a lot of very beginner's question, however I'm really thrilled to be enlighted Thanks in advance, Daniel
