  1. Hi, I have been running a small UnRAID setup for a couple of years to hold everything; business backups, computer backups, media etc. But the time has come to separate the content over two boxes, I cannot afford to lose some of the data storage. This is my current setup: 12Tb File Server: Case: Fractal Design Array R2, CPU & Motherboard: Intel D510MO / D510 Intel MN10, RAM: 4 GB DDR2 800Mhz. I have a lot of spare hard drives laying around my flat, so I will not be upgrading the drives at this present time, I will however use or sell what I have to effectively reduce the total cost of my new home server. The drives I currently have are: Parity Drive: 2TB Data Drives: 17x either 1TB, 1.5TB or 2TB Cache Drive: 1x 500GB 2.5" Total Drive Capacity: Unknown at present. Due to not knowing the state of the hard drives I have and if I can sell them, to help pay for required upgrades. I love my current setup due as it is extremely low powered system and virtual silent! My plan is to swap all of my hard drives that are not in use in my computer, media server and my networked attached storage (NAS for short) for a dozen for 4 or 5TB WD Red drives if the reviews of these drives prove to be positive. I am aiming to purchase WD Red drives purely for their ultralow power draw. This server project will enable me to downsize all of my IT equipment throughout my flat into one single machine. I might look into integrating my computer and/or my media centre into the server. My concern with this train of thought is reliability. If my server goes down, I cannot do any work. I will have to think long and hard about this before I make any purchases. I am upgrading my current setup, with the view of not needing to upgrade for at least 5 or 6 years, hopefully longer. The aim is to run a couple of virtual machines on my new server using either Hyper-V, UnRAID 6 or ESXi. This will enable me to combine as many systems as possible into one machine. Although I have my concerns, the main one being power hungry systems. There are two reasons for this, the first one; environment. I try to make my flat and my business as efficient as possible. The second reason is electric is not cheap in the UK. The primary uses of the new server will be: Computer backups using rsync or similar Virtual machines (Defiantly one that I can run Windows while at university as the campus is all Macs) - VM: Home security; IP Cameras - VM: Home Automation, maybe? - Blu-Ray Film/TV Episodes, Music etc Storage - Plex streaming/content provider - Backup server Update I’ve moved away from virtual machines at the moment and concentrated on Docker [https://www.docker.com/] which has been a steep learning curve which has been frustrating at times and has caused a lot of late nights!

    Silent Build: Silverstone DS380 Build [DAEDALUS]

    The part transfer has been completed and now it doesn't start lol. The motherboard's LED lights are flashing and the fans turn on, but they all turn off within ten seconds. Any ideas?
  3. My case has arrived Are there any other mods that I should do?

    Thank you! === Doh, the card I wanted is too long http://sapphirenitro.sapphiretech.com/en/vega64le.html#specifications

    Do you know the max length of the graphics card that can fit? As your answer does tick every box!

    Silent Build: Silverstone DS380 Build [DAEDALUS]

    Apologies for not getting back to you, work has been hectic! The RAM is the same, it's ECC. I bought it matched to avoid issues. ==== I just found this, it is what I want to do: === I'm thinking of upgrading to a Fractal Design Node 804 to house everything (both systems) as I need an optical slot, a RAID card, and a graphics card; hopefully, a Sapphire Vega 64 Nitro+. What do you think?

    I have 16GB of RAM. If I wrote 8GB, I made a mistake. What graphics card would you recommend I purchase? I'm going to run a 21:9 monitor.
  9. Thank you for posting your feedback on this case. I'm thinking of merging two computers (see link) and this case fits the bill as I'm looking to retain a DVD drive.

    Who is running a 2 in 1 server?

    Would you recommend doing this? As I am seriously thinking of doing this!

    Silent Build: Silverstone DS380 Build [DAEDALUS]

    My server is still going strong, however, I am tempted to run a Windows 10 VM to act as my main computer, so that I can sell my current one and it's monitors etc to upgrade. Please, can I have some advice on this? Is it a good or bad idea? I use my i7, 16GB computer for: - Website/Graphics Design, - Website/Android Coding, - Office 365 - Occasional Gameplay, - Occasional Video Rendering, - Plex Latest Server Specs: Case: Silverstone DS380, - Great case but no room for optical drive/graphics card with the current motherboard, so I'd probably transfer everything to a new case. CPU: Intel Xeon E3 1230 v3, MOBO: ASRock E3C226D2I LGA 1150 Mini-ITX, RAM: 16GB Kingston 8GB ECC KVR16E11/8, PSU: 450W Silverstone SST-ST45SF-G, UPS: APC BR900GI 540 Watts /900 VA. However, if I combine my two systems I'd probably buy: Monitor: Downsize from 2x 23" IPS to 1x 4K or 1x 21:9? - I am undecided. Case: One of the new Fractal cases with USB 3.0/C on the front. - I would like an SFF or mATX case but I can't find a decent one... I don't want a window or anything. I have no idea on what Motherboard, CPU (I have an i7 3820 atm in my main PC), RAM or Graphics card - should I wait until 2018/19? I'm also looking for a quality 2.1 speaker system as I'm thinking of getting rid of my 5.1 surround sound system. Any and all help is very much appreciated Thank you
  12. Hi, I am looking to upgrade my my main computer and my old NAS box. It isn't powerful enough to run the new UnRAID. My old NAS runs on an Intel Atom, which I might re-purpose for a pfsense box or an off site backup. Anyway, back on topic! Currently my main, daily driver is: Monitors: 2x LG IPS231 Case: Define R3CPU: Intel i7 3820Motherboard: MSI X79A-GD45 (8D) CPU: Intel Intel i7 3820 RAM: 16GB DDR 3 GFX: Geforce GTX 570HDD: I have multiple SSD (One in the machine and three in my filing cabinet). I have 12-13 3.5" drives doing nothing, plus the one in my machine. - I will be transferring any data off them to my file server so I can dban/destroy them after the build is complete.PSU: Can't remember Cooling: Noctua NH-D15 UPS: APC Power-Saving Back-UPS Pro 900 The idea/aim: Is to build an 'all in one' rig to act as a second UnRAID server and as a daily driver. Reducing the amount of hardware I have lying around and my power bill I am hoping to reduce my chassis size, but have room for a few 3.5" drives. I have been looking at SFF cases that can hold a ATX/mATX motherboard, such as the Fractal Design Node 804 and the Silverstone CS80. Although I've seen others have had problems and I'm not convinced that I I need the CD/DVD drive built in anymore as I have an external drive as a backup. Currently, I think my uses are: Business (web/coding/graphical editing) Work - Nothing that I can't do on my laptop if I had too.General IT use: - Document Processing - Internet and Streaming Video - Streaming - Receiving Plex, Youtube, Prime etc. Gaming: Currently I play C&C and Cities Skylines. But, I want to play some decent games now, such as Far Cry. VR: I'd like to try it, if possible? - One arm. What is my budget? I honestly don't know? £1,000 excluding the monitor?- I will purchase items at best available prices over the next two months and I will re-purpose what I can in the meantime. The monitor is not the priority at the moment, but I would still like suggestions.

    Three PCs In One - Second Sever

    Sorry, I didn't reply! I didn't see the messages. Has anyone else done this? That way, I can learn from their mistakes I'm certain that I will have to update my server case if I decide to go down this route. I am finding it hard to justify having two/three computers on almost 24 hours a day! - For work.

    Thanks for this. Do you know if it is possible to add multiple source folders, without error?

    Its worked for months without change. I've never had everything like: SAB: /mnt/cache/appdata/downloads/complete/ Radarr: /mnt/cache/appdata/downloads/complete/ It's always been: SAB: /mnt/cache/appdata/downloads/complete/ Radarr: /mnt/cache/appdata/downloads/complete/movies

    It's not that. It has to be that to function correctly. This error has returned: Task Error: database is locked Sonarr reports: Error occurred while executing task CheckForFinishedDownload: database is locked database is locked

    Finally, have a 'proper' error: Import failed, path does not exist or is not accessible by Radarr: /downloads/movies/ But it is accessible? /downloads = /mnt/cache/appdata/Downloads/complete/movies/
