  1. Also to expand on the network lab A wireless device on my network gets 74 MBS DL and 11.86 UL where as my VM gets 6 DL and 7 UL
  2. Forgot to add the config file default /syslinux/menu.c32 menu title Lime Technology, Inc. prompt 0 timeout 50 label unRAID OS menu default kernel /bzimage append pcie_acs_override=downstream isolcpus=1,2,3,4,7,9,10 initrd=/bzroot label unRAID OS GUI Mode kernel /bzimage append pcie_acs_override=downstream initrd=/bzroot,/bzroot-gui label unRAID OS Safe Mode (no plugins, no GUI) kernel /bzimage append pcie_acs_override=downstream initrd=/bzroot unraidsafemode label unRAID OS GUI Safe Mode (no plugins) kernel /bzimage append pcie_acs_override=downstream initrd=/bzroot,/bzroot-gui unraidsafemode label Memtest86+ kernel /memtest
  3. So I was having so much trouble with my older system, I decided to build a brand new one All I was looking for is the awesomeness of unRAID, and a decent gaming machine So I scoured the posts made a few threads and asked around and came up with what I throught should be an ideal machine Taking some new games like Doom, I';m getting 111+ FPS, Rise of Tomb Raider I'm getting ~35 Which are both playable numbers but then I run 3Dmark, I'm getting 3700, which is really lol And flash games are dragging their behinds in terms of FPS Another weird hiccup is the internet speed is slow, nothing access Server but my VM, and pages are loading like they do on dial up So somewhere the resources are dammed up somewhere, but after weeks of trying to find out where, I'm chasing my tail around Hopefully another few set of eyes can see something I don't Already looked at the main causes MSI interruption and the entire Video Card passed through even if I'm not suing the audio, as well as CPU isolation and pinning I'm thinking it's a weird hiccup in the unRAID config or on the board BIOS itself If any has run some of the hard ware below (and seeing how i got all the recommendations form here I know they do ) are there any tweaks needed? Or is it a simple mistake in the XML As always thanks every body for advice/solutions to try Model: Custom M/B: ASRock - X99 Extreme4/3.1 CPU: Intel® Core™ i7-6850K CPU @ 3.60GHz HVM: Enabled IOMMU:

  4. So I've tried all sorts of BIOS and UNRAID configs and have gotten no better performance out of the system, if anyone has any ideas where to tweak it be appreciated Then it hit me I upgraded everything but the GPU (thinking it would save money) Could an old or dying GPU cause such a low in 3Dmark and gaming performance If so, and I know it may be opening pandora's box, should I be eyeing ATI or NVIDA for a replacement; any recommendations on a solid gaming VM GPU
  5. Sorry about that, I didn't know the MSI could affect performance I forgot to mention that, I did do the MSI fixes, even though I'm not using HDMI audio
  6. So after weeks of trying to figure out why my old gaming VM wouldn't work I decided to just build a new UNRAID system But this new one is still have some hiccups with 3Dmark Looking through the posts I know this build should be getting at least a score of 12000, yet I'm getting 2000 So there must be something wrong with the set up I can see, either on the Unraid side or the BIOS side I'm hoping a few more sets of eyes can help find the problem Given Fixes Already taken: I pinned the CPUs and isolated Unraid's Pass-through the GPU and GPU sound card I didn't over allocated resources to teh VM

  7. 4 cores pinned and unraid CPU isolated 16 GB of RAM High Power Hibernation Disabled not sure about LSI
  8. So i pulled the trigger Monday this week and through Fate got a great deal at microcenter for the following M/B: ASRock - X99 Extreme4/3.1 CPU: Intel® Core™ i7-6850K CPU @ 3.60GHz Memory: 32 GB (max. installable capacity 512 GB) EVGA GTX960 However no matter what I try I still get 3dmarks in the 2000s What info do I need to gather before I post a question over in the KVM support thread or is there some super simple fix that I forgot
  9. If 32 is recommended, 32 is what it shall be But to save money I noticed Microcenter has a pretty good deal for that motherboard CPU combo But they don't have GSkill RAM is Gskill the best of the best or is there a speed I'm looking for in general
  10. 1151 vs a 2011 in terms of virtual vs bare metal makes sense So looking at it This motherboard (ASRock X99 Extreme4 LGA 2011-v3) @ 159.99 An i7 6800K at 329.99 An 16Gb of RAM (G.SKILL Ripjaws V Series DDR4 3000) @ 143.99 Comes a little over 600 bucks which is fine Would that be a rock solid build? Suggestions to any of those components would be fine Though I have decided to stay with a 2011-V3 chipset as DZMM pointed out it'll help a virtual system more than a physical one
  11. Ryzen sounds good but a lot of the threads here, especially the Ryzen one sounds like it's still to new The i7 builds on there look great too Considering the hiccups with Ryzen But a trend I see on here is a lot of people advocate 2011-V3 the builds on that site are 1151 Is there really a huge difference? It seems to come down to Bus Speed, but for one or two VMs is that a deal breaker?
  12. That is an awesome guide line to have! So most games are 8GB minimum so 16 would be ideal As for CPU each game seems little different and no real commonality as some relay on CPU more than others But from an Unraid performance/ease perspective is an i5 or i7 the way to go Some people see the i7 as the best of the best while others see a high end i5 the idle middle ground between cost and performance vs a low end i7
  13. Another quick update, the server in terms of crashes is rock solid, but now no matter the game there is noticeable lag It's a real mystery
  14. Alot of the posts I have read this week, seem to have a common thread put more money into a processor than RAM but like anything on the internet every post you can find about that, you can find one saying the other thing Is a good baseline of RAM around 16GB to start then? And would a good processor be the i7 family? Or is it better to have more RAM and stay in the i% realm
  15. Files are just through SMB to the Raspberry Pi, I've honestly never touched Plex, if I'm not at home I don't stream At most there would be one two streams, though if I"m on the VM there be only one, as the the PC and TVs are in different rooms So to answer your final question, my girlfriend may be watching the TV while I game, but at most one stream would be running while gaming The secure banking is just a secondary thought, right now for the major banking I do I use a live stick, a Chromebook is extra clutter I'm trying to avoid collecting (it's why I'm trying to keep my server/gaming in rig in one unit ) Over the weekend I was eyeing different components I was thinking this motherboard (EVGA X99) with a 6850K but that already puts me near budget before I even buy RAM, so my gut says that might be overkill for my end goal Then again, Microcenter does have combo deals with the 6850 and save a 100 bucks but none of the MBs caught my eye It's so overwhelming with all the choices, I'm glad there are so many gurus here
