    WiFi rather than Ethernet only for unRAID

    If you have satellite DECA is an option as well. It’s Directv’s version of MOCA as satellite runs in a different frequency range.

    First Ryzen build and new to UnRaid

    If you have a 1x slot you could pick up a 1x Nvidia 710 and use that for unraid.

    Video card pass-thru

    Curious how this turns out I was looking at that graphics card.

    Show me your builds!

    Here’s my AIO rig. 34TB Array, 2 480GB cache and a 512 NVME running my vm Win 10 in unassigned devices doing IOMMU passthrough. I know, I have to reroute the USB front header cable or move to the last 1x PCI-E. SpaceInvaderOne inspired me with the videos. This is in a cooler master mastercase maker 5. Still have space for 2 more under the shroud by PSU.

    [6.6.1] AMD Reboot bug

    I had something similar with my VM after the upgrade. Unassigned devices passed through other than VNC. Started vm, stopped vm, reassigned and everything started working again. Worth a shot.

    webgui: CPU pinning: hanlde dots in VM names Typo... Yes I’m that guy 😜

    Unraid OS version 6.6.0-rc1 available

    https://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/ram-overclocking-guide,4693.html Memory starts at the lowest most common settings for boards. You don’t get the rate out of the box, you have to set it. I can buy a GPU with an overclock too. Base frequency is what I’m referring to. Been an overclocker for years since my Athlon days. Yes its in spec but your point is moot. It registers at a set frequency when you install it. That’s the base setting. Anything above that even within spec is a overclock of sorts.

    Unraid OS version 6.6.0-rc1 available

    2666 and 2933 are overclocks. You have to use XMR or memory timing adjustments to get it. My RAM is rated at 3200 but run it at 2933. We can agree to disagree on the CPU as I don’t adjust voltage from stock and I run water cooling so my at load temps are 60 degrees C. Is it harder on the chip? Yes, do I really care? No as I can drop in another easy enough. It’s not like I paid $300-$400 for the chip. If I get half the life I’m still ahead.

    Unraid OS version 6.6.0-rc1 available

    Depends on what you use it for. Been overclocking with Unraid for years. Tell me you don't overclock your ram to get timings reported on the sticks... Difference in Watts pull and overclockability of AMD within margins and tight CPU OC makes it a completely safe bet in my case. I run 2 gaming VMs off this with CPU pinning and GPU and USB PCI passthrough.

    Updated beautifully, no issues with tweaks in VMs. In fact did a passthrough IOMMU with multifunction flag with no issues. Ryzen 2700 OC 4.1Ghz with 16GB of DDR4 3000. Multiple dockers and VMs.

    Keeping VM's operational with Array down ?

    No, this is due to services going offline. However not certain about starting array in maintenance mode. So I may stand corrected.

    unRaid overkill for my needs?

    Nah more for understanding that it’s 2.0. So current gpus are nearing the throughput, next gen may exceed. You can also run a gpu off a 1x slot but you’d not want to game on it. GPUs are backwards compatible. An 8x PCI-E 3.0 slot = 16x PCI-E 2.0 approximately. ?

    2nd slot is PCI-E 2.0

    New Build Sanity Check

    Agreed on the define S lots of expandability. Biggest thing people tend to forget, UPS. Don’t cheap out it’ll save you in the long run. Figure that build at least a 1000VA setup. Little worried you are skimping on using a B450 rather than a X470. Extra slots and can use for various other projects and a good 9211-8i or something. Just my 2 cents. Price difference isn’t a ton and could be worth it down the line.

    unRaid overkill for my needs?

    Be aware that the b350 board doesn’t have extra slots. So with this in mind if you have issues with Gpu passthrough for a single card you can’t pop in another card as the unraid OS one. Also why are you going with the 2600X vs 2600? Lower tdp and overclockable. So if you go with an arc form factor to meet the video card needs of a second card you’ll have to change your case too.
