    Advice on new build

    Yes correct, that was the memory for the other board.. Supermicro has certified: MEM-DR416L-SL01-EU24 by Samsung (for example) https://www.amazon.com/Supermicro-Certified-MEM-DR416L-SL01-ER21-Samsung-Memory/dp/B00MDZL2B6 EUR 125 So costs would stay the same. I know about the IPMI but for some reason I have issues using it and find the KVM switch (that I allready have) handier. I would go for the Sapphire HD 6450, it costs EUR 40 and (important) is passively cooled: It has a PCI-E 2.0 x 16 connection, would that fit on the board, it has: 1 PCI-E 3.0 x8 (in x16), 1 PCI-E 3.0 x8, 2 PCI-E 3.0 x4 (in x8) I would need to fit both the M2 adaptor and the GPU on these slots, as well as the M1015 card. That would leave me one slot, giving me the option to add-in the second M1015 if I need to in the future. That would make my shoppinglist: Intel Xeon E3-1230V6 EUR 271,45 SuperMicro X11SSM-F EUR 210,00 PCI to M2 Adapter EUR 20,00 Corsair 960GB M2SSD EUR 248,89 WD RED 8TB EUR 248,85 2*MEM-DR416L-SL01-EU24 EUR 250,00 Sapphire HD 6450 EUR 39,15 TOTAL EUR 1288,34 Probably a good idea to also exchange the PSU. Thinking of a Corsair RM750x for its price, zero RPM fan mode, modular cabling. This would ADD EUR 100. Any comments or better ideas how to spend this amount of money on something "better" ?

    Thanks Johny ! That is a good point and I certainly do not need the extra NICs, that would mean: CPU I am looking at an Intel Xeon E3-1230V6, this gets a Passmark of 9947, this opposite of mu current V1 which has a Passmark of 7848. That is a 25% speed increase. At the same time the TDP decreases to 72Watt opposite 80Watt of my current Xeon. https://www.cpubenchmark.net/cpu.php?cpu=Intel+Xeon+E3-1230+v6+%40+3.50GHz&id=3032 EUR 271,45 https://www.cpubenchmark.net/cpu.php?cpu=Intel+Xeon+E3-1230+%40+3.20GHz&id=1199 So that seems to fit. MOTHERBOARD The following Supermicro board that was suggested has 8 SATA connectors on board, the more the better since it will save me the expansion cards and the power they consume. https://www.supermicro.com/products/motherboard/Xeon/C236_C232/X11SSM-F.cfm EUR 210 I will need to add a PCI to M2 adaptor to accomodate the needed M2 drive: https://www.amazon.com/Lycom-DT-120-PCIe-Adapter-Support/dp/B00MYCQP38 EUR 20 DRIVES At the moment I have 15 disks in the system, 4 of them are 256GB SSD drives, I will plan to exchange those for 1 bigger SSD, the following one looks good: Corsair Force 960GB. It is not the quickest drive but a lot faster then SATA in any case, it also has an x2 slot as is what the SuperMicro board has, so that seems to fit: https://www.corsair.com/us/en/Categories/Products/Storage/M-2-SSDs/Force-Series-MP300/p/CSSD-F960GBMP300 EUR 248,89 When calculating for my system this would mean that I use the 960GB M2 as my cache drive, this means instead of 15 SATA drives in the system I have 11. Of those 11 I can service 8 thru the onboard SATA connectors (8). Leaving me with 3 left, that can be serviced thru 1 (instead of 2) of the M1015's (saving power). I also still have 1 3TB and 1 4TB drive in the system, I am planning to replace those 2 with 1 8TB WDRED, that brings down the number of drives again (to 10, saving power) https://www.wdc.com/nl-nl/products/internal-storage/wd-red.html#WD10EFRX EUR 248,85 At the moment I have 4 5in3 drives cages in my system, I could actually turn off two of those (including fans) saving again a bit more (would have to check if that really makes a difference irl). MEMORY At the moment I have 32GB of memory, that shows no signs at all of filling up, so I do not need to upgrade that to 64. The board has 4 DIMM slots, to make future upgrade possible I would like to upgrade to 2x16GB DIMM. Available seems to be the following, https://www.amazon.com/Supermicro-Certified-MEM-DR416L-SL01-ER21-Samsung-Memory/dp/B00MDZL2B6 EUR 125 (of which I would need two) That would make my shoppinglist: Intel Xeon E3-1230V6 EUR 271,45 SuperMicro X11SSM-F EUR 210,00 PCI to M2 Adapter EUR 20,00 Corsair 960GB M2SSD EUR 248,89 WD RED 8TB EUR 248,85 2*16GB DRAM EUR 250 TOTAL EUR 1249,19 Probably a good idea to also exchange the PSU. Thinking of a Corsair RM750x for its price, zero RPM fan mode, modular cabling. This would ADD EUR 100. Any comments or better ideas how to spend this amount of money on something "better" ? Added question: The board has a VGA for video out, although that is sufficient for a console I would like to utilize my KVM switch, this needs an hdmi port. What would be the cheapest gpu that gives me a hdmi port that would work with this board ?

    Thanks.. Working on this: CPU I am looking at an Intel Xeon E3-1230V6, this gets a Passmark of 9947, this opposite of mu current V1 which has a Passmark of 7848. That is a 25% speed increase.

Would like that for the cache and application drives. An other option could be the X11SSH-LN4F. Product data shows it has 8 SATA ports and an M2 port (x2): https://www.supermicro.com/products/motherboard/Xeon/C236_C232/X11SSH-LN4F.cfm EUR 232,45 Anyone any experience with this one ?

    Advice on new build

    Hi, My current Unraid setup is 6, allmost 7 years old and still performing strong. I experience no performance bottlenecks but looking at the age of the system I feel it is about time to think about replacing some of the components (specifically: motherboard, cpu and possibly ram). My setup has been rock and rock solid from the beginning and my new build needs to be as good. What setup would be advised out of the following standpoints: 1) Stability (this is key to the choice, I do not want to pick components that have not thoroughly proven themselves; 2) Performance (but only looked against what I am using the system for, see below, I have been using these components for several years and I do not see that changing a lot, I will not start doing 3 gamers, 1 machine like stuff 3) Power consumption 4) Money. The unraid system is such an important part of my setup, and I am convinced I will use it for many years more. I will pay extra for power consumption, even if that extra money spent does not get back in the running costs. At the moment I am running: Supermicro - X9SCL/X9SCM Intel® Xeon® CPU E31230 @ 3.20GHz 32 GB Single-bit ECC M1015 type SATA controllers What am I using it for: File server (the array is 55 TB of which 76% is used) Some base plugins, nothing special Dockers for: Couchpotato, CrashplanPRO, Deluge, MYSQL, Plex, SAbnzbd, Sickrage, Spotweb, Syncthing, Transmission Any tips are appreciated !

    Oom is not really an issue any more, sure that you need this?

    So you want to access the gui without another pc and without cables ? Err.. wireless hdmi ? you do realise you can access the webgui with any webbrowser on your network ?
  9. Yes it did ! Verzonden vanaf mijn iPhone met Tapatalk
  10. Seems that did it... It is stable now..
  11. And again... Changed it to 16384M now.. ERROR: CrashPlan for Small Business is running out of memory. The application crashed because of lack of memory. More memory needs to be allocated. This can be done via the CRASHPLAN_SRV_MAX_MEM environment variable.
  12. Now it does not continue starting but the error is back.. I will enlarge the memory to 8192M [app] starting CrashPlan for Small Business...ERROR: CrashPlan for Small Business is running out of memory. The application crashed because of lack of memory. More memory needs to be allocated. This can be done via the CRASHPLAN_SRV_MAX_MEM environment variable.
  13. The whole log is filled with: Crashplan engine - starting
  14. The GUI cannot connect to its background process.. (crashplan notification, not the docker vnc..)
