  1. Your system seems to be overheating your cpu is doing what it should when this occurs check fans and cooler to ensure all is working and clean also my not hurt to replace the thermal paste on the IHS
  2. Anyone else not able to condense the forum in unread topics? Strange as its happening on another forum as well?
  3. If I were to create a BTRFS cache pool and make them set to "only" in raid 1 is that not a striped array that will read/write at a potentially higher performance also could I create multiple cache pools from say 4 disks into 2 pool arrays?
  4. I once did what you are and had dual parity but with the number of drives you currently have I question the need you would serve yourself better by making the parity a single 8TB disk and adding the 4TB and 8TB drives to your array the chances of a 2 disk failure at the same time is minimal and of course you should have a backup of any critical data on 2 other sources not connected to your server
  5. well i'm certainly no expert but I think that is the problem unRAID is seeing the 4TB as a parity drive therefore your 8TB may be conflicting if I've understood folks on here but they will certainly chime in so don't go by my observation 😉
  6. looks like you have a parity drive listed as 4TB and one as 8TB is that correct?
  7. I'm told it's not but it's an unknown as I have never done it, it sounds like it's similar to a bios update with the same pitfalls of potentially bricking the card if not done properly
  8. I have purchased 2 of these at different times and they were both plug and play you may be able to find cheaper but this vendor is good https://www.ebay.com/itm/Dell-H310-6Gbps-SAS-HBA-w-LSI-9211-8i-P20-IT-Mode-for-ZFS-FreeNAS-unRAID/162834659601?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649
  9. I'll only add that you can install an ssd drive bay adapter to your optical drive bay for additional space but that does not help with a pool although check to see if you have a unoccupied sata port on your motherboard as my R710 has one your manual indicates you should have one as well then all you need is to tap a power connector with a couple wago clips and you will have 2 new options for a cache pool not sure what version of sata the R720 has but mine are sata 2 so that may be a deal breaker for you not sure of your use case
  10. Just to add the HBA needs to be flashed to IT mode for the drives to be passed through to unRAID and support SMART info
  11. I have 2 of these and they were plug and play seller very reliable: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Dell-H310-6Gbps-SAS-HBA-w-LSI-9211-8i-P20-IT-Mode-for-ZFS-FreeNAS-unRAID/162834659601?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649
  12. Yeah you'll have considerably a higher performance running machine by upgrading I didn't realize that cpu was only dual core with no hyper threading it will be like night and day!
  13. I cannot comment on the processor you currently have but I can tell you that my primary unRAID box is built around my I7 6700 non K and it performs excellent and I work it hard, its my Plex media server, my home assistant sever, and running upwards of 12 dockers and still has plenty of room in the tank
  14. I have 2 of these from this vendor they were plug and play with both my unRAID boxes one home built the other a Dell R710 and seem to be a bit cheaper than that card listed: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Dell-H310-6Gbps-SAS-HBA-w-LSI-9211-8i-P20-IT-Mode-for-ZFS-FreeNAS-unRAID/162834659601?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649
  15. Never did that where would I find root privileges in krusader
