  1. Since you did a new Plex installation, do you think some of the issues could be due to an existing issue switching from the Nvidia plugin to the new Nvidia driver? Seems that those that had an issue with transcoding are ones who already had the linuxserver.io Plex Docker installed and then switched to the 6.9 beta and new driver.
  2. If your data is sensitive and valuable, I wouldn't transport 3.5" spinning hard drives like that. If you want some flexibility and ruggedness, it would be worth your while to use SSD's and have spinning drives for backups at an offsite, stationary location. It'll significantly lower the weight of your system as well as require far less room.
  3. Are you going to keep your 3.5” drives inside the case while transporting?
  4. Apparently, the X570D4U and X570D4U-2L2T work a little different than their predecessors. It looks like @cakes044 has gotten the fan controls to work with impitool. Hopefully, @dmacias will provide an update to the IPMI plugin here in the near future.
  5. Stock speeds at 3200mhz shouldn’t be much different than running with higher speeds and you won’t need to overclock which adds more instability. I too want this motherboard but it’s impossible to find right now. Provantage even took down their listing for it and when I called them, they said it could be 1-2 months before it is in stock.
  6. I agree with @Frank1940 in that we really need some sort of visual instructions setup in its own thread. A lot of users are having issues with getting all the steps correct and getting their GPU to work in Plex. This is especially true since the Nvidia plugin is now gone. Is the only way to get the drivers now is by downloading the Beta version? I’m completely onboard with having the drivers now integrated officially but it looks like a lot of kinks still need to be worked out. Guess that’s why it’s in beta.
  7. Did you make sure to reboot you server after installing Nvidia drivers?
  8. Can you post screen shots of your Docker container? Have you previously used this card in a VM? What Nvidia driver version did you install? What version of Plex are you on? When you say “dashboard GPU statistics”, do you mean the Nvidia GPU statistics plugin? Have you tried uninstalling it and trying to transcode?
  9. Did you reboot your server after installing the Nvidia drivers?
  10. What does your Plex Docker setup look like? Did you input the extra parameters?
  11. Have you installed the IPMI plugin and have the fan control working?
  12. The socket on this motherboard is situated perpendicular to what is normally on the threadripper motherboards. It's done the exact same way with the Epyc motherboards. The Noctua cooler is meant for normal (non-server) motherboards, that's why it's pointed in an unusual direction. Overall with the Noctua cooler, you're definitely not getting optimal cooling with the way it is orientated, but you shouldn't still see the CPU spikes you are seeing. It's more than likely a IPMI/BMC issues in their software. The E3C246D4U had something similar going on. ASRock Rack is renowned for trying new things like Threadripper server boards but they struggle often with their BIOS/BMC updates. Their motherboards are very cool but most usually have some sort of quirks that take time to work themselves out. Are you on the latest stable BIOS or the beta BIOS?
  13. That is correct that AMD cards/AGPU’s won’t work with hardware transcoding in Plex Docker containers. It’s not so much an issue with Plex as it is a Linux issue. Nvidia is the only brand of card that can be passed through on a Plex Docker container for transcoding.
