  1. Good Deal for Canadians https://www.newegg.ca/p/1Z4-0002-00MY7 $189 - WD Red 6TB NAS Hard Disk Drive - 5400 RPM Class SATA 6Gb/s 256MB Cache 3.5 Inch - WD60EFAX
  2. Also looking for a DC++ client
  3. I created a topic already it seems more appropriate here. I just installed unRAID and I am trying to pass through the onboard video Asrock Z370 Extreme4/I7 8700K (Intel IGD - UHD 630 iGPU) to a Windows 10 VM and just get a black screen when starting the VM. I am able to VNC when using all VM settings. I have installed Team Viewer and have been able to connect but only when using OVMF BIOS. I have also tried every combination of VM setup possible. Double checked all my Asrock BIOS settings, including setting Onboard Graphics as Primary Display etc.. IGD is in its own IOMMU group IOMMU group 1: [8086:3e92] 00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Device 3e92 And the Intel Device 00:2:0 is listed under GRAPHICS CARD in VM Setup. I did a lot of reading and it appears that perhaps the new Coffee Lake's iGPU may not be supported yet. Has anyone tried IGD pass through with an 8th gen? Any help is much appreciated.

  5. Makes sense and will help in my decision. I agree 100% 8700k is the way to go. I am a bit confused here. From the earlier posts I thought you meant go with a 2.5" SSD rather than an M.2. I think what your saying is go with a cheaper M.2, Is that correct? The WD 1TB M.2 just went on sale on Newegg.ca (Canada) today for $349 CAD which I believe is $269 US I don't find it condescending at all. I really appreciate all the help and knowledge. Definitely helping to make decisions. I agree Yes I went a little high on this but it went on sale this weekend and I picked it up locally with $40 off I will likely go with the default mobo ram speed (not OC) I'll be watching for sales. I'm on PCpartpicker & Newegg daily with Price Alerts now set.
  6. I'm thinking of going with the Asus Prime Z370-A as well. I'm interested to hear how its worked out for you?
  7. I posted in the Hardware section but I think this section is more appropriate to the decisions I need to make at this point. I am struggling with making a decision on a CPU & Mobo combo. Here is my build thus far -> https://ca.pcpartpicker.com/list/HYMdCb 1 Windows VM for ripping my blurays to MKV with H.264 using Ripbot264 and as a daily driver. Plex Docker with 1-3 streams Max. No gaming at this time. I am now looking at the 7700k ($390 CAD) or the 8700k ($460 CAD). 7700k is 4.2GHz with 4 Core & 8700k is 3.7GHz with 6 Cores. So do I go for higher clock rate and less cores or more cores & lower clock rate? Next is the Mobo, I was originally looking at the Asrock Z270 Extreme4 cause of the 8 Sata Ports & Asmedia ASM1061 Sata-Controller ($223 CAD) or I could go with a cheaper 6 Sata Port MB and when more storage is needed buy a PCI expanstion slot for more SATA ports. Are there any pros/cons either way? Maybe I should go 8700k with Asus - Prime Z370-A, has 6 Sata ports & $200 CAD - Would save me $25 towards the 8700k Just looking for some comments/opinions? Thanks
  8. All of my prices are in Canadian. The mobo is $223 CA which equals $173 US. Will any modern mobo work with Unraid? is there any to avoid? The $350 US 8700k you posted equals $450 CAD and the I7 7700k ill be getting for $389 CAD equals $301 US. How am I not making any use of the M2? The M2 is now on sale in Canada for $259 which equals $200 US. Thanks for the feedback, its very helpful and I want to make the right decisions and not spend money where I don't need to.
  9. I'll keep my eyes open for External Sales. I'll take the speed of the M.2 for now, I think your right and I will eventually need more. When the time comes, Ill sell it and upgrade to a 1TB. Yes, I get 2 extra SATA Ports, and from my research on the forum, The Z270 Extreme4 was recommended for that reason and because of the ASMedia ASM1061 SATA-Controller which is supported by unRAID. Originally I was looking at the ASRock Z270 Pro4 until I saw the post below. However I do agree in the extra money to get 2 SATA ports as the Pro is $135 & the Extreme4 is $222, an $87 difference. Now i'm unsure The 7700k is on sale right now locally for $389, 8700k is $450. Only real reason for 7700k was for faster Blu-ray transcoding & now that its on sale, it seems to be a great deal. Likely 1 - 3 maxx Plex streams. I have never OC'd before but I would like to experiment with it. Picked up the PSU today cause it went on sale for $109 from $145 and also grabbed the Define R6 cause they matched the lowest online price of $198.
  10. Yes the plan is to utilize the Blu-Ray Reader in the Windows VM.
  11. I am new to Unraid, it was recommended by a friend so I did a lot of research and have started my build list. Currently I have an old PC (Core 2 Quad - Q6600) running Windows/Plex Server with 4 TB Drive that is almost out of space. I am choosing Unraid for redundancy and the ability to easily add storage as needed. Here is my build thus far: https://ca.pcpartpicker.com/list/HYMdCb Essentially I will be using this machine to rip my bluray collection for Plex & everyday Windows use, browsing, light work in MS Office etc. No interest in gaming. CPU Intel I7 7700k I picked this CPU as it seems suitable for CPU transoding using Ripbot & powerful enough to run 1 or 2 1080p streams for Plex. Motherboard ASRock - Z270 Extreme4 Went with this Motherboard for the following reasons: 8 Sata ports (Good for addittional stoarge in the future) The board uses the ASMedia ASM1061 SATA-Controller which is supported by unRAID. RAM Corsair - Vengeance LPX 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-3000 16GB seems to be plenty. I am not very familiar with newer RAM, picked 3000 as it seems to be a mid point. Not sure if its the best choice? Cache Samsung - 960 EVO 500GB M.2-2280 Solid State Drive Correct me if i'm wrong but I believe the Windows VM will reside on this drive & I went with 500GB as the Blu-Ray Rips will be placed here before transcoding. Array 3 Hitachi - Deskstar NAS 6TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drives 1 @ 6TB - Parity 1 @ 6TB - Storage 1 @ 6TB - Storage Case Fractal Design - Define R6 Black TG ATX Mid Tower Case Great looking case that comes with 6 Drive trays expandable to 10. Good air flow & decently quiet. PSU EVGA - SuperNOVA G3 650W 80+ Gold Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply With no video card I think this supply should be good enough and allow for future expansion. Budget $2000 - $2500 Goals 1 VM - Windows 10 Docker - Plex (possilbly some others) Other Parts Already have a LG UH12NS40 16x Internal Blu-Ray Reader that I plan on adding to it Old PC has the following drives: 4 TB WD Green 1 TB WD Green 1 TB WD Green All input will be greatly appreciated.
