  1. Just unlucky I guess. I have 7x 8Tb WD Red in my Tower3, my main Tower total 100Tb data. 2x are my Parity drives. How old is your power supply?
  2. Controller arrived, installed and booted no worries, This is a headless Tower, so did not see the Firmware version. Will do that later today. UnRaid in Tools, System Devices listed as Serial Attached SCSI controller: Broadcom / LSI SAS2116 PCI-Express Fusion-MPT SAS-2 [Meteor] (rev 02)
  3. I do wish you luck, That is a lot of sata connectors, and power connectors. Hope the gamble pays off..
  4. Why do you say that? I have bought my 9211-8i's off this seller and were OEM cards.
  5. This is the ebay seller I bought off, https://www.ebay.com/itm/9205-8I-9207-8I-9201-16I-9201-8I-9211-8I-9340-8I-IT-Mode-for-ZFS-FreeNAS-unRAID/132902519120?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&var=432201158266&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649
  6. I just ordered a 9201-16i, would give you enough also... Arrives in a couple of days... Still cheaper than replacing your current Tower gear.
  7. You could buy a LSI controller, 9211-8i in IT mode..just a thought Cheaper than replacing the mobo etc.
  8. I would replace the cable for Disk 5, Log shows it resetting many times.

  9. A BIOS setting for the motherboard and CPU.
  10. Kingston Data Traveler 2 is one of the recommended USB Drives, https://www.amazon.de/Kingston-DTSE9H-16GB-DataTraveler-Speicherstick/dp/B006YBARCA/ref=sr_1_2?keywords=kingston+datatraveler+2&qid=1569736735&sr=8-2 https://wiki.unraid.net/Hardware_Compatibility#USB_Flash_Drives I have 3x SanDisk myself, Ultra Flair 32Gb, I like them as they are not a short stick, better for less heat issues.
  11. What is your UnRaid setup at home? Do you change equipment or components regularly? What would your Ultimate Setup, case and components be?
  12. I use 2 Parity once I go over 14 data disks. Are good points for single and dual parity. Is a choice on which way to go.
  13. I would be interested, BUT I live in Switzerland. Please PM and chat offline. Much appreciated
  14. How much memory is installed, Also how many individual sticks? Did you purchase as a working server?
  15. What his real job is, Because his video's are top quality and great knowledge passed onto this community. How does he find the time. Much appreciated
  16. My Towers are used for data backup and Plex. Currently I have 2x active Towers, and a testing Tower. I have 120Tb for my main Plex Tower3, has over 3000 Blu-Ray movies, and 250 TV series My Tower2 is 44Tb of Photo's and data backup. My Testing Tower1 is currently at 30Tb, but varies all the time as I test and change the configuration, testing disks and controllers.
  17. VGA onboard is available for bios setup. Also has IPMI lan port.
  18. Have had an awesome run with UnRaid, Have 3 Towers. Very few problems, Hard drive failures, not software related. 2 have been running for over 12 years. This forum is The Best on the planet. There are a few very special people here, always helpful and respectful. Thanks.
  19. Not sure if still running, but worth a look.
