  1. Well, the e5-2670 (v1 I'm assuming? You didn't mention it.) has 40 pcie lanes available, but I don't know how many actually are available to the pcie slots after the cpu takes some. Will you also be passing thru an SSD to each vm or were you just thinking of having them stay on the array?
  2. Oh yeah, the reason for this post. Because I can't keep my mouth shut about how much people need Unraid in their every day lives, no matter if it's corporate with their servers or a DIY NAS box to make backup super simple. Heck, I'd even buy a case badge!
  3. First off, great looking build. I would love specs, because I am planning a Threadripper build for my one box to rule them all setup. Waiting on 3rd gen TR to see if that will be worth it, or just grab a 2950. My plan sounds like yours, but mine feels like.. overkill? (Is there really such a thing if you're going to use it all in theory??) My plan is to have 1 Windows 10 VM with passthrough to nvme drive and some AMD card, 1 Linux VM with the same setup, MS Server installs and Linux servers that don't need a video card to perform well on a SSD, then about 5 10TB drives for storage, running pfsense, plex, filezilla, and anything else I can think of.
  4. OK, question. OpenVPN docker vs pfsense vm and setting up openvpn there?
  5. Trying to find someone who has experience with that new board is like trying to find a needle in a haystack.
  6. Valid point on the passthough. As far as the HDDs, explain a little about why 4 bigger drives would work better than the smaller drives? Something to do with the parity or the fact that they're 7200 rpm? Just interested. Thanks for the reply!
  7. First time poster, in absolute love with Unraid. For a test run, I threw it on my old Phenom x6 with 16 gb of ram and 5 2 tb drives. Been doing some testing, thinking I am going to add a cache drive to see if that helps network file transfers. I absolutely love it. Honestly, better than Freenas, better than openmediavault, and worth whatever I have to pay for the devices. I'm planning a new build and I can't do anything small time, so here is the build list I am working on. Fractal Design Define R6 Gunmetal Brushed Aluminum/Steel ATX Silent Modular Tempered Glass Window Mid Tower Computer Case AMD EPYC 7351P 16-Core 2.4 GHz (2.9 GHz Turbo) Socket SP3 155W/170W PS735PBEAFWOF Server Processor Asrock Rack Server Motherboard EPYCD8-2T EPYC 7000 Series DDR4 M.2 10G LAN WD Red 4TB NAS Hard Disk Drive - 5400 RPM Class SATA 6Gb/s 64MB Cache 3.5 Inch - WD40EFRX (x6) SAMSUNG 16GB 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM ECC Registered DDR4 2666 (PC4 21300) Server Memory Model M393A2K40BB2-CTD (x4) SAMSUNG 970 EVO PLUS M.2 2280 1TB PCIe Gen 3.0 x4, NVMe 1.3 V-NAND 3-bit MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) MZ-V7S1T0B/AM (x2) SAMSUNG 860 EVO Series 2.5" 1TB SATA III V-NAND 3-bit MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) MZ-76E1T0B/AM (For cache) ASRock Phantom Gaming Radeon RX 560 DirectX 12 RX560 4G 4GB 128-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 (Uses x8) HDCP Ready Video Card (For Linux VM) EVGA GeForce RTX 2060 XC BLACK GAMING, 6GB GDDR6, HDB Fan Graphics Card 06G-P4-2061-KR (For Windows (ugh) 10 VM) ASUS Black 12X BD-ROM 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-ROM SATA Internal Blu-ray Drive Model BC-12B1ST (For blu-ray... archiving) LG 43UD79-B 42.5" 4K UHD LED IPS Monitor, 3840 x 2160, HDCP, USB Type C, 4x HDMI, DisplayPort On-Screen control, Screen Split, Built-in Speakers (Because why not) My plan is to do hardware passthrough and give linux (What I use all day) the AMD card and one of the nvme drives, give 10 the other nvme drive and the Nvidia card, then run all of the neato dockers and services I want.
