  1. Also thank you for your input Energen. While searching for a motherboard I mainly looked for the amount of SATA and M.2 connectors. Of course the IOMMU support (don't know how common it is) was also very important, so that the GPU could be used. For me personally also the NIC had be a Intel one, because I always had issues with other vendors in my gaming systems (latest being a MSI board with KILLER Network NIC, which "kills" my network connection with their drivers). Considering that, I didn't really paid any attention to those other features. Which motherboard vendor do you usually prefer for Unraid? Also I am really looking forward on building my first Unraid system. 😄 Regards, SirAleks
  2. Thank you for your input SirReal63. While reading into RAM for Unraid, most posts seem in favor of ECC. While I already built gaming rigs, this will be my first server and considering the different use case I went with it. On thermals I am aware of the impact because of the front panel (currently using the Define 6 for gaming), but the I really like the simple design and flexibility of it. In case of thermal issues the front door will be removed. Regards, SirAleks
  3. Hi there! After years of using a Mac mini with Promise Pegasus RAID for Plex, Nextcloud, Teamspeak and some other smaller services I am looking for something new. The new setup will primarily focus on virtualization (VM & Docker) and the Plex VM will utilize the Quadro P2200 for hardware transcoding. Also I wanna be able be overall more flexible for random experimental setups and getting more storage if needed. Currently I plan to run a cache pool (RAID 1) with the two 970 EVO Plus and use it for the VM stuff, while the array is primarily used for the Plex content. Before I order the parts (everything is new) I would like to get some feedback/inputs from you guys. Am I missing something? Any recommendations? Hardware List Case: Fractal Define 7 Case Fans: Noctua NF-A14 PWM (x3) CPU: AMD Ryzen 9 3900X CPU Cooling: Noctua NH-D15 SE-AM4 Motherboard: Gigabyte X570 Aorus Master RAM: Samsung M391A2K43BB1-CTD 16GB DDR4-2666 ECC (x4) SSD: Samsung 970 EVO Plus 1TB (x2) HDD: Seagate Ironwolf Pro 10TB (x6) GPU: PNY Quadro P2200 (x1) Power: be quiet!
