    👍 Hopefully they'll release a stable branch soon so I can try it.

    So nvidia cards can't be used with these unRAID dockers: EMBY (to transcode) or Handbrake (to encode x265)?

    Other random thoughts: Seems like the ribbon adapters in theory should work... I don't see why they have such mixed reviews on amazon. Also, they sell external enclosures for 16x cards, but they're kinda pricey

    lol, so true! If it was just a test bench mobo, I'd give it a shot. 🤪

    I'm with you on the ribbon cable idea, it does makes more sense so a card can be mounted elsewhere in the chassis. The ones I saw on amazon had mixed reviews, and my nephew says he's never been able to successfully get one to work; which is why I created this thread. I might be looking at just waiting it out until I get an upgraded server that properly supports 16x cards. 😕

    I've seen the videos... thanks, but not gonna risk damage to my server mobo by cutting off the back end of a slot bracket or a 16x PCIe card by sawing off the "extra" teeth🔨 😲; which is why I was looking for a 16x to 8x adapter. 😆

    Good to know, thank you. Sounds like I need to do more research before I get one. That's what I thought, which is why I was looking for a 16x to 8x adapter.

    Thanks for your prompt reply. I didn't realize you could just plug a 16x into an 8x slot. I thought the teeth on the 16x would hit the back side of the 8x slot preventing it from properly seating in the slot.
  11. Hi unRAIDers, My main unRAID box has onboard video for basic viewing only and several 8x PCIe slots. I want to add a beefy GFX card (perhaps a Geforce 1080ti) to help with video transcoding/streaming. Can anyone share their experiences with 16x to 8x adapter cards and/or offer a recommendation for adding a GFX card? Many Thanks!

    Does unRAID support animated gif banners?

    That looks awesome! What theme are you using? My dashboard doesn't look that good. (v6.6.6) (I like how your items are separated in to columns with boxes.)

    [PhAzE] Plugins for Unraid 5/6

    Space Invader's videos are da bomb! I'm in the newbie camp myself and his tutorials are useful and easy to follow. He's very methodical and detailed. Usually if he tells you that need certain things, there are texts/links in the description so you can just cut n paste. Once things are humming along you can for the most part have a set it and forget it box--but because unRaid is so powerful, I think you'll always want to do more with it. Hang in there!!
