  1. This is something i will have to dig deeper into at some time. Generally I havn't noticed anything alarming. But for some reason it seems CS:GO is capped at 150FPS when I'm playing it on my Win10 VM on Unraid. If I boot up on barebones I get 280+ FPS But this is the only game I have experienced it in (and the only game I play I generate 150+ FPS in) Sorry I can't give a better answer at the time of writing this
  2. I'm glad that my updates to the post is helping someone, it makes it worth the work! After your kind words, I'll continue updating the post with new info After my experience with BSODs and parity errors I'm not overclocking my memory anymore. The gains vs. the risks are not worth it to me. But yes, if you want to do a overclock, you should wait until you have all the sticks. Everything would have to be re-tested and probably reconfigured when you get the last sticks. From what I have understood, all USB sticks are fine. I'm running mine on a stick I got for free at a conference, works just fine even though it's a "slow stick".
  3. I lowered the speed to 2400MHz, and have now made two parity checks. The first run found a single error. The second run didn't find anything. I have yet to confirm that the errors stops coming, but for now it seems that it helped. Thanks for everything so far Edit: Yes, the errors stopped after lowering the speed
  4. It has two entries So I'll have to take a closer look and determine if its Hynix or Samsung modules
  5. For Dual Rank memory, the memory controller on the Ryzen 1700 is only supporting 2400Mhz https://en.wikichip.org/wiki/amd/ryzen_7/1700#Memory_controller The kit I have, is dual rank memory: https://www.reddit.com/r/Amd/comments/649ay8/ram_collection_thread_please_post_your_ram/
  6. Just changed the speed to 2400Mhz and started a new run. Will let you know how it went in 24 hours (2 runs)
  7. They are running 3200Mhz, running that speed due to XMP. The part number for the memory is F4-3200C16D Asrock is making their PRO series that supports and runs ECC memory: https://www.asrock.com/mb/AMD/X370 Pro4/index.asp#Specification
  8. Thanks, I'll try it out. My data is too valuable to risk discarding it in favor of a few Mhz Next upgrade will be on a proper motherboard that supports ECC memory
  9. I'd love to run ECC, but I was stupid enough to buy an MSI board for my Ryzen 1700. It can boot ECC memory, but ECC is disabled. Regarding memTest and the errors. If I can't find errors on the memory on any frequency, then it could still be a frequency problem? I'll have to try and give parity checking a few more runs. And double check if I consistently can get rid of the errors with a lower frequency
  10. Then it is just so weird that MemTest doesn't tell this story but unRaid does?
  11. Do we know why higher memory could be causing these errors? After all, Ryzen is hungry for the Mhz, so I would feel kinda sad having to kneecap my processor by forcing the frequency of the memory down.
  12. I have tried Memtest earlier, with multiple days of consecutive runs, with no errors. But I will try this out again if the problem persists and we are unable to find a specific drive that generates the errors
  13. Hi there. I have been troubled by parity errors on/off for some time. I might be looking at the logs the wrong way, but it seems that the same sector is being corrected on subsequent runs. The sector I found was: sector=366010328 Is this something I'll have to worry about? If we are talking about a drive that's beginning to malfunction, then how do I identify the specific drive in order to replace it? nas-diagnostics-20181203-0631.zip
  14. Noted, I'll but that BD aside and await an update for MakeMKV I didn't know this was a new feature that was coming. This potentially really big news!
  15. For some reason, this docker is not good friends with my BD copy of "The Imitation Game". Last time I tried, MakeMKV said there was 202 versions it had to save (it canceled that operation due to lack of space ) As far as I can understand Java should be part of this docker, so I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong since it can't handle the playlist obfuscation? Does anyone know?
  16. To take this further / make this more concrete, I would greatly advice using the unassigned devices plugin and have the VMs on dedicated SSD's that are unassigned and not part of the array. Using the cache can also be a viable solution. My experience is that the performance is a little better when Windows gets it's own SSD
  17. Regarding this part. I had a similar problem with my USB DAC. I had to stub and pass-through an entire USB controller on the motherboard in other to stop this behavior.
  18. @tsawind quick inputs / pointers from here. Yes, that USB hub would probably work Something you will have to think about and make clear for yourself, is that Plug n' Play doesn't work out of the box. To get Plug 'n Play, you'll have to stub and passthrough an entire USB controller to a VM. You can read up on that on the forums, and SpaceInvaderOne has videoes about this too. Wrapping my head about this part took me some time. I'm too used to Plug n' Play
  19. Arh yes, my bad for not telling you to try SeaBIOS, personally I use OVMF so had forgotten all about it There definately can be some trial and error here. But man it feels good when you get it working, right?
  20. I understand your frustration I felt the same in the beggning. My next advice would be to try and boot it up with VNC as the GPU, as you would then be able to remove the GPU from the list of components that could give you trouble. "Remoting" in to the VMs is often a frist try for me to at least check if everything else works as expected. But I'm glad you got an image to the screen now Looking forward to hear more on the future progress. Though, I'm on my way to bed, live in Denmark, it's 11:30 PM here
  21. Ah, it seems you are trying to pass through your primary graphics card? Guess you only have one GPU in your system? If this is the case, try giving the following video a look: There's also a lot of search results on google for "unraid passthrough primary gpu" A quick note about pinning your CPU cores to the VM. 1. Unraid OS want to play with the first cores it seems, this is the pair 0/1. Two cores should be enough for UnRaid OS. 2. If possible bin the logical and virtual cores in pairs. That is 0/1, and 2/3 etc. Space Invader One has more about this on his channel (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f8ieFDCRkLs) Also, you are only giving your VM 1 core. I guess you are suffocating the VM. Try giving it half your CPUs. Pinning everything from 8 to 15. Having to force stop the VMs sounds to me like the VM has frozen. When you say "stop" it is sending the "shutdown" command / signal to the VM. If the VM is frozen it won't respond to this.
  22. How far did you get with creating a VM? I have yet to see screendumps of a created VM under the tab "VMs"
  23. Have you watched all of the videoes? They really do give a good introduction and propably answers many of your questions It seems like the video you are after here is the following. I am using this setup at the moment
  24. I don't know how far you have gotten, but I can only recommend the youtube videoes from @SpaceInvaderOne These are the first ones that comes to mind in your situation: Also @linustech have made a couple of videoes on the subject. The first one I think of is this one If the above videoes are not what you are after then please do feel free to elaborate on how far you have gotten. Screendumps, specific errors etc. is all golden for us in order to help you The more info you can give us, the better we can put ourselves in your situation and help you progress
