  1. Save your money (1050TI or 1060) or pay more (1660). The new 1650 doesn’t have a Turing NVENC chip. Nvidia cheaped out. https://www.reddit.com/r/hardware/comments/bgokyg/the_gtx_1650_does_not_have_turings_nvenc_encoder/?utm_source=share&utm_medium=ios_app
  2. Can you please link to the weather strips you used? The link you provided is the exact same one for the bolts.
  3. I actually have one that has the plugs at the end. I’m thinking about probably just buying a bigger case with 9 x 5.25” bays. Going by measurements, I’ll probably roll with a used AZZA Solano 1000 or a Cooler Master Storm Trooper/Stryker if I can find one when the time comes. Either that or get a different HBA card or just buy 3 more of the Icy Dock MB153SP-B and those should easily fit without any changes in the Antec 900. I was really hoping the SuperMicro cages would fit without issue though.
  4. Are there any Antec Nine Hundred (900) with Supermicro 5 in 3 cages owners still out there? I'm looking to do a build later this year with that setup (3 cages). I just wanted to see if the overall length of the cages interferes with an ATX motherboard. I know the fans on the back of the Supermicro cages poke out quite a bit and probably overlap the board. Anyone have any pictures of the cages inside their Antec 900? I don't want to purchase everything and then have problems getting everything plugged in.
  5. AMD offered up free kits to update your bios for the Ryzen 2000 series. I don’t know why they wouldn’t do that for the 3000 series as well. https://www.extremetech.com/computing/264097-amd-shipping-free-processors-customers-address-apu-firmware-update-issue
  6. I’m seriously thinking about doing exactly what you did later this year. It looks like the most space efficient and mass density setup I have found that’s not in a rack. I’m probably going to buy two of the 2.5” adapter trays (MCP-220-00080-0B) which will give me 2 x 2.5” drives and 13 x 3.5” drives where all are hotswappable. I have a couple of points/questions though. 1. The link you provided is old and that seller is no longer selling them. I did find a new seller though: https://www.ebay.com/itm/SUPERMICRO-CSE-M35T-1B-5-x-3-5-Hot-Swap-SAS-SATA-Drive-Enclosure-with-Screws/391459095707?epid=867385290&hash=item5b24c7c49b:g:jRAAAOSwxehXOgXt 2. What size motherboard did you use in your setup? Looking at the dimensions for a standard ATX motherboard, the Antec 900, and the CSE-M35T-1B, it looks like there will be some overlap with the motherboard and the fan of the hard drive cage. Did the fan interfere with your 24 pin connector or ram since they are placed on the right side of the motherboard? If interference is a possible problem, I might have go with a mATX board with the ram on top of the motherboard. 3. How is cable management for the Antec 900 behind the motherboard? Is there enough space for the SATA cables and molecules power connectors? 4. I’m planning on buying a 550W or 650W Seasonic Prime Ultra Gold PSU which comes with 4 possible SATA/Molex power cable ports. Should I just use 3 of the ports to give three independent Molex connections to the hard drive cages? I hope that makes sense. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
  7. I’m assuming Ryzen 3000 series will be supported but we won’t know for sure until they actually launch Zen 2 in a couple of months.
  8. Has anyone replicated this? I have a ton of .avi files and I'm looking to use this Nvidia plugin in the near future when I do my build. If it's a reproducible problem and not fixable, then I might have to rethink my build.
  9. Both the 9211-8i and the cables you picked looked good. The seller for the HBA card has a perfect rating and lots of reviews. Looks legit to me. The cables are very similar to the ones I have. Just make sure you don’t bend them too much when using them. They are a little brittle and can break. As long as you’re not too forceful with them and doing crazy bends, they should work well.
  10. Here is a good list with some explanations about whether a model will need to be flashed or not: https://wiki.unraid.net/Hardware_Compatibility This is the one I bought: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Genuine-LSI-6Gbps-SAS-HBA-LSI-9211-8i-P20-IT-Mode-ZFS-FreeNAS-unRAID-low-profile/163558361429?hash=item2614d68955:g:I08AAOSwY7lcb1sJ:sc:USPSPriorityMailSmallFlatRateBox!45230!US!-1 This seller is rock solid and it’s worth the price for someone else to do the flashing if you don’t feel confident. Also, you’ll need some forward breakout cables as well. These are of really good quality and worth not skimping on: https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B012BPLYJC/ref=ya_aw_od_pi?ie=UTF8&psc=1
  11. https://www.asrockrack.com/general/productdetail.asp?Model=X470D4U#Specifications mATX Comes with: Dual Intel NIC ECC Ram support Onboard Graphics (!!!!!!) 6 x 6 Gbp/s SATA ports (plus an additional 2 with a controller...kind of blows but I wonder if you could flash it) IPMI Hopefully this actually sees the consumer market. It might have me switch from Team Blue to Team Red. If it comes out in a full ATX, I’ll buy it in a heartbeat. EDIT 4/4/19: It looks like all 8 SATA ports will be available to be used with UnRAID because the other 2 ports are controlled by an Asmedia 1061 controller, which is compatible with UnRAID.
  12. Wait...you got NVDEC to work with Plex? That's awesome. I had no idea you could get hardware decoding AND encoding with a Plex docker container. Any explicit instructions on how to set that up or know where I could find them?
  13. Thanks! Do you have to set an A record for the Cloudflare DNS?
