  1. Hi guys, Hope someone can shed a light on my Ryzen 5950 Unraid system - first time builder - please be patient with me... I am getting this after a few months and this month twice... might be the heat in the room...

I am planning to upgrade my Gigabyte X570 BIOS Master and also upgrade UNRAID OS to the latest... just being extra careful... mybongo-syslog-20210802-0321.zip
  2. Wow, I was not expecting a difference for the passmark to be that huge between the 10900K and 3900X. All local clients will be direct stream and maybe 3-4 remote 1080P streams from HEVC sources (1080p). Good tip on the P2000 - I will keep this in mind. What concerns me now is the stability and uptime between the 10900K and 3900X. Kinda moot point if the server crashes or hangs often. I am betting many concerns and posts are from first time setup (some not all). I did some reading and found VM gaming with 4/6 cores with concurrent transcoding with Plex (I assume it would be the same for Emby or Jellyfin) would have not noticeable impact. Heck I am even dreaming of running Flight Simulator 2020 through Parsec. I wont be pushing the server to the limits, just to serve the household purposes as listed above. My motivation is using a lower spec laptop/Android/IOS and do some remote gaming casually and stream my contents to family. Much appreciate your feedback. I will definitely document my experience and steps to get my scenario working as I am sure many are in the same boat.
  3. Thanks for the tip. That is why I am torn between Intel 10900K abd the Ryzen 3900X. I am leaning towards the 3900X if I can transcode 3-4 1080 streams via software.
  4. Thanks for the input. I will just swap out the RTX 3080 with my personal desktop RTX 2070 if there is any compatibility issues. I never found any information if I can transcode via CPU only on a 3900X for Emby and Plex. I assume it should. I did read a few posts scattered that transcoding some streams does not affect the VM gaming experience so that is encouraging. I do hope to use at least 6 cores 12 threads for the gaming VM so I should have plenty left for everything else. Linus was doing proper troubleshooting based on what I have read - adding a 3rd card etc. But I was kinda disappointed he did not follow through and resolve the problem. I am following this guide: https://forums.serverbuilds.net/t/guide-remote-gaming-on-unraid/4248
  5. Hi guys, my first post here and hope you guys bear with me. I am struggling to decide on whether to go with a Ryzen 3900X build vs Intel 10900K build. I am listing my current parts but I can return the unopened components to switch platforms. I am hoping to a have a stable system with decent uptime so I will not need to reboot every so often. My ideal parts: - Ryzen 3900X or 3900XT - Gigabyte Aorus Master X570 - got it - 4 x Corsair LPX Vengeance 16GB 3200Mhz memory - got it - Nvidia 3080 if an when it is available - 2 x WD SN750 black 1TB NVME - got it - 4 x Seagate Baraccuda Pro 10TB - got it - Fractal Design 7 casing - got it - Corsair H1000x or H1200x (out of stock - would 1000w be plenty enough?) - The recommended HDMI dummy plug - got it - Samsung 32GB bar USB as recommended - got it Use case: - File/Storage server. - W10 Gaming VM (would I even be able to run FS 2020 inside a VM as an example?) with 3080 GPU passthrough (6-8 cores) - Emby Docker with HW transcoding through the Ryzen 3900X CPU - 2 to 3 1080p transcoding from HEVC source. Maybe 1 to 2 4K transcode from HEVC source. - Radarr, Sonarr, Jackett, Transmission dockers. - Rsync with remote NAS to do offsite backup on some data - PieHole (never tried it yet) - VPN Server - Automated photobackup from IOS and Android devices I am currently following this guide: https://forums.serverbuilds.net/t/guide-remote-gaming-on-unraid/4248/226. Aside from my stability and uptime concerns, would it be recommended to get a second GPU (GTX 1660 for example) as a dedicated transcoding device for Ryzen/Intel build? Would an Intel 10900K with Quicksync be fast enough from the transcoding requirements? Is there any guide to setup a dual GPU system on a Ryzen build? I just watched Linuttechtips and he could not get a dual GPU Ryzen build working and switched to an Intel build which is worrisome - https://linustechtips.com/main/topic/1245279-we-made-the-perfect-couples-pc/ Lastly, should I stay with a Ryzen build, I was told not to use the latest BIOS - something with IOMMU groupings being messed up. ANy referal on what revision to stay with? Thank you for any feedback.
