  1. Hi community! Having had a Ryzen and a TR1 previously and not built an UNRAID system in about a year, what's the current status with latest Ryzen and TR2 MB/PROC support and UNRAID? Is temperature monitoring for CPU/Mobo/nvme etc now fully supported and are all the PCIe reset bugs of the past fixed? Any advantages to using Intel over AMD with UNRAID? I plan to use media streaming dockers, 2 x gaming VMs (Nvid and Rad) , just want to be sure before splashing out. Thank you.
  2. Thanks for the replies thus far. I think I'll be purchasing a new system in Jan 2020 once the Intel/AMD competition has settled down a bit. Very keen on the Gen10 Intel but Zen2 TR also tempting. So much choice but unltimately I want to buld the best dual gfx gaming UNRAID with some Plex thrown in for good measure.
  3. Anyone care to share their thoughts? Really appreciate it, thanks
  4. Hi Having been a previous (last year) Xeon, AM4 and TR4 UNRAID user I am now looking at building a new system for gaming and Plex. My experience with TR4 was great (so it seemed) but I'm curious what optimisations (if any) are included in UNRAID and the KVM kernel whilst running a Ryzen system today? The fact that AMD has a signifcant chipset driver package for Windows bare metal that should be installed begs the question whether us UNRAID users are losing out on perfomance when running Windows 10 Virtual Machines since we cannot install the chipset driver package. This leads me to think that Intel Gen10 processors may the best way forward since the Linux Kernel had long supported the Intel micro architecture and there is no need to install any Intel CPU/SMB related drivers inside a Windows 10 VM. So for this reason, If you had a choice, is it Intel or AMD and why? Thanks for your time.
  5. thought as much. Patience required for x570 and Ryzen 3.
  6. Can the onboard Intel i9 gfx be passed through?
  7. Was thinking of using the Intel gfx onboard for light gaming. Otherwise, I'll have to wait for new AMD refresh and build something from that - might be more cost effective.
  8. Hi people I am looking at putting a new ITX build together to run PLEX (4k support, 2-3 simul streams) and also 2 or 3 VMs (2 gaming VMs) concurrently. Ideally I want it to be ITX in size so probably looking at a max 32/64GB mem all SSDs/NVMEs and min 8 cores (16 threads). Was looking at z390 asus strix and i9 plus 64GB double height DIMM - might be overkill though. Any recommendations? Thanks.
  9. Hi Is it possible to configure br0 and br1 interfaces so that they bond as 2x10Gb interfaces thus making 20Gb? I managed to activate NIC teaming on Windows 10 using this command New-NetSwitchTeam -Name "SwitchTeam01" -TeamMembers "Ethernet","Ethernet 2" I now have a NIC team showing 20Gb in my windows 10 VM. Problem is, I get much worse transfer speed to UNRAID shares than I did with just a single 10Gb NIC configured. Basically, I want to maximise my transfer from my W10 VM to a share on the NVME drive in the array. I figured 600MB/s wasnt enough and thought about bonding/teaming. Is what I am trying to achieve do-able?
  10. Nope, I remove the nvme drive and the flashing stops. I have two other nvme drives also connected and they're fine. I wrote an email to Corsair to explain my issue and suggsted I return the drive. I have to admit it's very odd but I did notice also that the BIOS stop code ends in A5 which is SCSI reset, when I remove the nvme drive, the stop code is something else. I think my drive controller is up s*it creak.
  11. I'm considering using 2 x nvme in RAID for my VMs but want to know if it's indeed worth it compared with say passing through each nvme drive to a VM directly. I ran a performance test using W10 Pro 1809 as a RAW image on my MP510 3GBps nvme and ASSD bench's approx 3GBps read and 1.4GBps write. I then tried copying a 4GB file within the W10 VM using explorer and only got 350-400/MBps. What gives? I would expect closer to the 1GBps mark. I only used defaults when creating the VM so I'm not sure if there's any tweak changes to the XML that I need to do to improve virtio SCSI performance. Any tips?
  12. My HDD LED on my case is constantly flashing and I cant isolate why. I shutdown all VMs, dockers and take the array offline and the light is still flashing like there's constant drive activity. So, I reboot UNRAID, go in to the motherboard BIOS and the light is still flashing. I suspect it may be something to do with one of my nvme drives that I'm passing through to the W10 VM because when I then start UNRAID, power on the VM with the nvme drive passed through, the flashing stops for a few minutes until after Windows is fully loaded. Then a few minutes later the constant flashing starts again. It's very strange and I'm really struggling to pinpoint the culprit. The nvme is the corsair MP510 and all SMART test pass OK and drive performs normally. At a complete loss at the moment where to start looking other than trying a different nvme drive which I dont have atm.
  13. Also, Is it possible to see fan speed from RX 570 GPU? I use istat hwmon etc and can only see GPU temperature. All other info uch as voltage, fans etc are not there.
  14. I keep getting 'there was an error connecting to the Apple ID server' when clicking Sign In on the Appstore. I suspect it might be because Apple doesn't recognise the VM as a real MAC? I have followed everything in the guide so I'm not sure why I can't access the Appstore. Appstore login works on other machines and High Sierra VM, only Mojave has a problem.
  15. Hello TR4 2950x UNRAID: 6.6 10gb local vNIC br0 (mtu 1500) 1gb NIC physical Win10 VM 1809 (6 cores/12 threads) SMB Share: Array Disk 1 nvme (contains appdata and downloads share) - Tunable DirectIO set to yes. iperf tests from VM to UNRAID host benched in excess of 10gb/s (no issues there then) w10 VM nvme drive passed through (benched 3Gb/s) unraid smb share on nvme drive (benched 2Gb/s) Tests performed: 1.) Copy 4Gb file from SMB share to W10 VM (avg 300Mb/s) WHY? 2.) Copy 4Gb (different file) from VM to SMB share (avg 1Gbs/s) Expected. Only copy sessions from SMB to the VM are 50% slower than the other way (VM to SMB share).

It seems also that If I transfer large files from another SSD in the unassigned devices pool, I don't have any speed issues. Only when transferring between the Array disk and a VM. Any ideas?
