I've currently got the following hardware running Unraid 6.6.0.
Intel Core i7 4790 3.6GHz CPU
32GB DDR3 1600MHz Ram
MSI SLI Krait Gaming Motherboard
5x Seagate Ironwolf 4TB NAS Drives
1x 480GB Sandisk SSD for Cache
This is packed into a 2U Rackmount Case, and a couple of the fans are on their way out, and things are a little warm. Needs replacing.
Currently runs: Plex (4-5 concurrent streams at night/weekend with hw transcode), Sonarr, Radarr, Tautulli, Organizr and 2x Ubuntu VMs (LAMP).
I've inherited an 8th Gen mATX Bazooka Board for free (works perfect), which has got me thinking about how I can upgrade my Unraid Box.
I'm sold on the Node 804 Case, for the drive bays and the aesthetic.
I've got DDR4 Memory, 16GB ready to go.
I'm stuck on the CPU.
Do I upgrade my wife who streams to twitch to a 9700K, and use her 8700K in the new Unraid Server, or buy something lower down the chain like an i5 or something?
I'd like to future proof, and also have some 4K Content on the Plex that I'd like to make use of.
Cheers for any input.
