    Successful Core i7 Build

    I have heard the masses speak!!!!! Here are a few pictures. You can see in one pic the overall height and width of the box. Inside, you can see it's pretty jammed in there to fit 10 storage drives, parity drive, GPU, SAS Controller, and Heat Sink/Fan. Every spot I could within the I put fans. You can't see them, for the most part, but they are tucked away to give venting anywhere possible. Soooooo, all of the equipment, plus the cabling led to a cramped box. So far though, no cooling issues at all. Zero!!!

    Sorry xavierda, haven't tried that. I'm using this machine strictly as a high density, high usage media storage and Plex server.

    Successful Core i7 Build

    Working on it....when I get cables for the new SAS Controller
  4. Wanted to help folks looking to build or upgrade...... I just ungraded my tower to an intel core i7-7820x ASUS ROG STRIX X299-E MOBO Corsair Vengeance LPX 16gb RAM Cooler Master Hyper RR 212E-20PK-R2 LED CPU Cooler ZOTAC GeForce GTX 1060 Mini, ZT-P10600A-10L, 6GB GDDR5 VR Ready Super Compact Gaming Graphics Card (old board ran vid off of mobo so needed something) Currently running an old Rocket Raid SAS controller while waiting for cables for LSI Logic LSI00344 9300-8i SGL SAS 8Port 12Gb/s PCIE3.0 HBA Controller Box is running with 10 assorted sized WD Red drives totaling 39TB of storage And of course, Unraid 6.6.0 ZERO problems so far. In fact, did a test run today and managed to run via PLEX 9 simultaneous BluRay movies from the stored media on the box. Only tweaking was done in the BIOS. I updated BIOS version before I rebuilt the box and once the mobo was in, just needed to adjust boot sequence and RAM frequency. THANKS to all who helped me out and answered my questions. This has been a great stable build so far and vast improvement over my 8 year old mobo/processor setup. Hope this helps somebody else out!
  5. Yes I did mean you Johnie....thanks a bunch. Like the idea of no scripts and hopefully, won't need to flash either
  6. Three Eight Eight.....I forgot to ask you an important question. Based upon your reply, I picked up a LSI Logic LSI00344 9300-8i SGL With my previous RocketRaid controller, I needed to insert a line of script with the hardware code into my boot file. Is that needed (I assume so) for this board and if so, what do I need to put in? Thank you again for the help and kindness

    MOBO with Intel I219V network adapter

    OUTSTANDING....thanks guys!
  8. Has anyone purchased a MOBO with the Intel 1219V LAN? It's not in the network compatibility list as of yet. Wondering if anyone has tried using it with uNRAID v6.5.3 and if so, what did you need to do to get it working....thanks in advance
  9. Decided to upgrade uNRAID box to an Intel Core i7-7820x CPU riding on an ASUS ROG STRIX X299-E board that has an Intel x299 chipset. My RocketRAID 2720SGL doesn't seem to work with this configuration. Any thoughts on a new SATA controller that can work with this? Thanks
  10. SOLVED: It was an overload problem! If you have a huge movie collection (3000 or so) and set up one folder to move at once, the data transfer and looking for metadata will overwhelm the router. WiFi was inop and then I had trouble with hardwire internet connections. Had to resort to reset router to factory and start over. Now I transfer in batches of 200. It WORKS! Also have remote connectivity while transfers are happening. Everything now working as it should!
  11. That's what I said, it doesn't make sense but my connected devices didn't go down until plex started processing. Yes, my server is hard wired. Rechecked and still in green with remote connectivity. None of my smart home or amazon echo/dot's will connect. My smart phone won't even connect. Completely baffled as I've tried to reboot the router, turn off then on the radios....nothing. Not sure if there is another setting that could be causing issue or not other than port forward and that shouldn't impact anything either. Talked to another plex owner who has had it setup for years and he has never come across anything like this. Thanks
  12. After a few challenges, I finally was able to get plex up and running, able to remotely access, and start processing my library. Problem is, now my wifi network is down. I'm on Fios with my fios router set to bridge and using a Netgear Nighthawk r8000 router as primary. Everything worked until I started to have plex process my library(s). Thoughts by chance? Thanks gang
  13. I'll apologize up front if this is the wrong area or if it has already been addressed. Searched but couldn't find anything addressing the issue I go through my routers configuration setup for OPENVPN and I must download and load the config files into my folder for the router. Then unRaid 6.35 setup, following space invaders video, tells me to do the same with unraid to send config files into the openvpn config folder. Wouldn't that create a conflict that would not allow it openvpn to run? Also, the video did a opened the connection. You can't do that from within the network your working on, correct? I tried and of course, it didn't connect. First time doing this and struggling. My first issue was a double NAT problem that I overcame. I know I'm close to solution but not sure. Thanks for y'all's patience

    Petta....as it turned out, I tore into the motherboard and found that one of the memory sticks burned out on me. Had the same thing happen on my secondary server too. It turns out that the collar to hold the cpu heatsink/fan clamped to the cpu broke on one side and needed to be replaced. Only way I found out the problems on both was actually taking everything out and apart. On the memory, I had to go one by one and slot by slot to ensure it was a stick and not the slot. Time consuming but what can you do? ON the collar, only way to spot it was to tear into the case and detach the heatsink/fan. When I went to reattach that is how I found the crack that caused it to be loose and not sit completely tight on the CPU
