  1. You should exclude your cache drive in the plugin settings. 47deg is usually fine for an SSD. Mine ran constantly when I got new SSD's until I excluded my cache pool.
  2. I love the fact that I have lost a few drives over the years, but I haven’t lost any data. I’d love if fan control was Automatic and supported multiple fans.
  3. FWIW, my KP issues were down to BIOS version. I updated to the latest Gigabyte BIOS and it ran fine for the past 3 years.
  4. I thought I might post this here as it's taken me a while to piece it all together and it may help someone else get Fan Auto Control working. I have a Gigabute Z390 Aorus Elite board. Unraid can't support the fan PWM controler out of the box. I spent a couple of evenigns playing with sensors-detect btu noting was recognised. Then I found this page: https://github.com/a1wong/it87/issues/1 Essentially, you go to Main -> Boot Devices ->Flash -> Syslinux Configuration -> Unraid OS Change the second line from: append initrd=/bzroot to: append initrd=/bzroot acpi_enforce_resources=lax Then add this line to your /boot/config/go file: modprobe it87 force_id=0x8628 Reboot and Fan Auto Control should see your PWM fan.
  5. Cool. At least it's one of my older drives.
  6. I rebuilt parity overnight, and just as it was ending, Parity2 threw some read errors. Is my best option here just to replace Parity2? tower-diagnostics-20191108-1605.zip
  7. You’ve saved my bacon yet again Johnnie! Many thanks.
  8. Update: system, log has this after mounting the FS again: Nov 7 19:19:13 Tower kernel: XFS (md3): Corruption warning: Metadata has LSN (5:1567790) ahead of current LSN (5:1566498). Please unmount and run xfs_repair (>= v4.3) to resolve.

  9. OK - I did that and it says: Is it OK to use -L?
  10. OK, I had the brianwave of pulling all the drives/flash and putting them in my gaming PC. After some fiddling I got all drives to show. The good news is that there are no ATA errors in the log. The bad news is that drive 3 is showing as unmountable. That drive is 4.5 years old and was due for replacement. I have a spare. Is it worth rebuilding that onto a new drive. If so, there is no issues replacing a 3TB unmountable with an 8TB? New diagnostics attached tower-diagnostics-20191107-1858.zip
  11. Yes - just spotted that. I have an option of a Gigabyte X299 AORUS Gaming 3 for that CPU - post edited
  12. My old PSU seems to have bitten the dust, but I'm thinking of using the opportunity of future proofing my server for the next few years, but it's been a while since Iv'e built any hardware and I'm not up to speed on the latest CPUs. Currently my thoughts are as follows: - Motherboard: Gigayte Z390 Aorus Elite or Gigabyte X299 AORUS Gaming 3 - RAM: 2x Kingston KCP424NS8/8 (already have one stick of this) - PSU: Seasonic FOCUS Plus Platinum 550W (just ordered this to replace my old one) - Cooler: I need some suggestions. It needs to be something quiet as it's goign to be in my office. There is plenty of space in case for a large heatsink. Not sure I care about water cooling. - CPU: i5-9600K or i7-9800x - data/cache dries to be recycled from current system This will mainly be used as a Plex server but I also run a couple of VM's and have considered moving my GPU from my gaming rig and consolidating into one machine. I can source either of the CPU's cheaply, but I'm torn between QuickSync on the i5 and 16 threads on the i7. My current thoughts are that QuickSync for transcoding isn't really worth it due to inferior quality, and with 8 cores on the i7, it will not have any issues coping. I'm also thinking that the i7 is likely to be better able to mange future needs. Can someone give me some input before I spend my euros?
  13. Yeah. The error moved to ata7 when I did this which points to the PSU. It’s only a year old but has a 3 year warranty so I’ll RMA it. I have a gaming PC so I can pull the PSU from that I’n the meantime. I hope I have enough SATA power cables...
  14. Cables and card look OK to me. I'm not sure how to proceed though. Parity2 is connected to the motherboard, but there are 6 drives in total on the motherboard and 2 on a PCI card. Is it worth swaping parity2 over to a spare port on the card? I have a spare 8TB drive I can swap in for parity 2, but there seems to be an error on ata4 also. Looking at the disk attribites, there are UDMA CRC errors on disk1, disk2, disk3.
  15. Agreed. I’ll shutdown later and check my cables and card. I’m already looking at new hardware - I’ve been looking for an excuse for a while.
