  1. mine was busted too -- woot to sharrensen for the advice. backup again.
  2. I have an old AMD Sempron in and old case where I toss all my old drives. I run the sleep plugin. its a unraid box without a parity drive or cache. Once a month my master unraid sends a WOL packet and rsync's to the backup box. It uses about 90% cpu but has no issues pushing the drives close to 90Mb/s then back to sleep it goes for another month.
  3. ST8000VN0022 not sure why a newer drive would have an older version of firmware.
  4. I upgraded from 6.8.3 to 6.9.0 without issue. I have 10TB segate ironwolf pros (firmware EN01) and 8TB ironwolf's (SC61) - all on a LSI controller with NCQ on. The 8TB's had about 2 years on a ZFS system as a mirror also without issues before I moved them to the unraid system.
  5. I had an old AMD Sempron (with the extra core unlocked) running unraid and it worked great. The only thing lacking was it did not have AES-NI which made encryption not a strong choice. I upgraded to a ryzen 2200G - the system was more snappy but overall my transfer rates / parity check rates did not really change much. I did have a number of ryzen related issues (borking the system under load) that I could never solve - I moved on to an intel system and used my Sempron as a unraid backup box. My ryzen is now a ubuntu desktop system with no issues. If you want power efficient, a Intel J3355 cpu that is built into a Asrock motherboard uses less then 10W and has lots of punch for a NAS.
  6. And to counter that.... I had a 2200G with a Asus prime b450 - I tried all the AMD tricks. None of them really made any difference one way or another. The only thing that seemed to help was putting RAM at its stock speed rather then what it was capable of (3200). I never had any crashes when in general use, just when the system was pushed it would often freeze. In the end I gave up and got a Intel 10400 system and it has no issues and is much more powerful then the 2200G. My old AMD system became a general purpose desktop with Ubuntu 20.04 and has no issues no matter how hard its pushed. From reading these forums, it seems AMD ryzen is pretty hit or miss with unraid. My previous system as an AMD Athlon and it had no issues.
  7. You don't need a Z490 board, they are great for windows gamers who overclock to the max.. but for unraid a b460 board is more then fine and way cheaper. I have a gigabyte DS3H b460. But for 11gen you will need a newer kernel for the onboard NIC. 6.9.x would do it or 6.8.3 with a patch for a newer kernel (I have the patch since 6.9 was still in beta when I got my board) For a SATA expansion card I would recommend something like a SAS2008 class PCI card - I bought a cheap SATA expansion card at first and had tons of issues with it, the SAS card worked from the get go.
  8. 6.8.3 does not have a new enough kernel to support your NIC. 6.9.x has a newer kernel that will - your other choice (which is what I did) is to use 6.8.3 and a newer kernel. I use the kernel patch from thor2002ro
  9. I have a gigabyte b460 DS3H with a i5-10400. lower end specs but I have not seem the same issues with a hot cpu. The only real change was enabling XMP for faster RAM. The z490 being more a 'gamer' board may default to max out performance. the gigabyte manual is VERY bare-bones, I had to pull a Asus b460 manual to make sense of some of the settings as asus better explains what some of them do with the occasional picture.
  10. I have a 2200G and from my research this seems to actually be a first gen Zen1 and a GPU added, my theory is it something about unraid does not like this cpu and chipset. I recently put Ubuntu 20.04 on my ryzen board and no issues at all (even with ram at 3200) and no 'tricks' to make it work. From above it appears you have a 2700x, so maybe more cpu/mobo combos have issues. Have you tried unraid 6.9.beta? it has a newer kernel that may solve some of the issues you are having. I bought my ryzen last year and it pained me to give up on it, plus the $$ I had to shell out.
  11. some people seem to have no issues with ryzen, I did have issues. lowering the ram speed of my 2200G to stock fixed the instability issues. all the other 'tricks' seemed to have no effect in solving my 'blowing up under heavy cpu/disk io' case. In the end I got a intel i5-10400 and all the problems I had went away. The old ryzen system is now a windows desktop with no issues.
  12. yes. just got a i5-10400 with a gigabye b460 ds3h with unraid 6.8.3 running an updated kernel 5.9 works no issues. i upgraded the kernel to make sure the realtek 8118 NIC would work. i don't play games or do any kind of transcoding on it. it replaced an amd ryzen 2200g before that that had issues under heavy loads (yes I did all the amd tricks).
  13. I had the exact same system as you did, but I kept upgrading to the latest version of unraid. I highly recommend you upgrade everything before changing hardware. I would also suggest a "LSI IBM SAS 9200-8i IT Mode" type sata expansion card - I bought one from ebay already setup for unraid (IT mode enabled), I plugged into the videocard slot and had no issues with it. That AMD Athlon is a little powerhouse (mine was actually a cheapo single core Sempron that the asus motherboard auto-upgrade to a dual core athlon) You may also want to pick up a blackfriday external usb drive - this will allow you to upgrade from reiserfs to xfs/btrfs
  14. try thor2002ro 's kernel build if you don't want to run unraid-beta
