  1. I've never used the dust filter, it's still attached to the stock fan in a box somewhere. As it's the only fan in the case, that makes it positive pressure, so there's basically zero dust buildup. There's perhaps a very light dusting on the sides of the drives, but really nothing to be concerned about.
  2. Agreed, the Asus is just an Aquantia NIC painted red. Same NIC is fitted to a lot of NAS/server boards. There's no reason it won't work on unRAID. My QNAP unRAID box has the Aq NIC and works fine, and I've also had the Asus card working in my old unRAID box (a i5-6500T machine).
  3. Adding to this thread, I've tested unRAID with the following two QNAP machines, both work perfectly. No configuration required, just plug in the unRAID boot USB and off you go. QNAP1: QNAP TS-h973AX (9 bay Ryzen V1500B), 32GB DDR4 ECC, 2x960GB Micron U.2 NVMe drives (cache) and a few 3.5" array drives. The 2x2.5G and 1x 10G NICs work fine. QNAP2: QNAP TS464 (4 bay Celeron N5105), 16GB DDR4, 2x WD SN570 M.2 NVMe, and a few 3.5" array drives. The 2x2.5G NICs also work fine.
  4. I sincerely hope that the UPC remains optional. I will not be using this, after the total disaster caused by a similar scheme employed by Ubiquiti. Mandatory signon using their cloud, which was promptly hacked exposing hundreds of thousands of user details. One of the main reasons I use unRAID is so I'm self-sufficient without the need of cloud-based logins, and also so I have as little user data out there as possible.
  5. To be honest, I don't know, because it's always just worked for me, both using nvidia and Intel Quicksync using the i915 driver. Hopefully someone else can help.
  6. I'd try the linuxserver version, rather than binhex. You should be able to use the same folder on your appdata if you've already everything else set up, just change the default to suit the folder present.
  7. Looks fine to me, did you remember to add the --runtime=nvidia variable in extra parameters?
  8. If you're using the linuxserver Emby install, it's exactly the same as Plex. Can confirm it works fine (I'm using a much shittier GTX1050 to good effect).
  9. Thanks. I neglected to mention I also got two DOA AsRock boards - all three I've bought have been AsRock Rack workstation boards, C226 WS boards of various flavours. One arrived factory sealed with a mashed CPU socket, and one was just plain dead. The third I've already described. I do have a number of machines at work using elcheapo AsRock Z370 boards (the low-end microATX boards, supplied in pre-builts), and had no issues with those in the past year or so. It's annoying that the AsRock Rack boards were a 100% fail.
  10. Not sure Pentiums have QuickSync. If they do, there's some limitations. Personally, I'd pick up a low-end nVidia card and fire that in. I use a GTX1050 in my unRAID box - it does my Emby transcoding, and currently it's also doing Folding@home for COVID-19. The GTX1050 transcodes quite quickly - to transcode a 60 minute H265 to H264 for my AppleTV to play, Emby was transcoding at around 360fps. It had the whole file transcoded in a few minutes. I use the GTX1050 as my server has a Xeon with no iGPU (E3-1271v3).
  11. CrapRock. I wouldn't touch one of their boards with yours. Do yourself and return the board while you can, before it flames out and burns your house down or something. Yes, I've had an AsRock flame out, thankfully I was only setting up the machine and had the side off, and was able to power it down PDQ.
  12. You really won't notice much difference in speed between the USB3 Ultra Fit, and the older USB 2 Fit. The Fit runs cooler than the Ultra Fit too, which I think may result in a longer life for the stick.
  13. Install the CA Backup V2 plugin. Create a backup. Copy the backup file(s) across. Restore the backup on the new machine. Once you go in to the Docker tab, you'll see a list of your old Docker templates when you go to create a new Docker. You won't need to mess with setting up all your variables etc again, it'll all be there.
  14. I can transfer as fast as the 12TB Toshiba array drives can go, which is about 250MB/s. Server has an Intel X520 with SFP+, connected to switch using a DAC cable. Workstation has an Asus Aquantia 10G card via CAT6. Switch is one of those bizarre Netgear 10 port MS510TX things (2x10G, 2x2.5/5G, 2x2.5G, 4x1G).
  15. Just added my server to the fight - 5 cores and 5 HTs of my 8700K. No overclock, apart from All core turbo enabled. So 10 'cores' at 4.7GHz.
