  1. Wow. Good catch. I didn’t realize the CPU didn’t have integrated graphics. I guess I will need to look into adding a 4x AMD option.
  2. Hi Unraid Community. Currently looking into building an Unraid server to since it fits my needs. Planning on using it as a NAS, running Plex Media Server, a Windows VM, and a Mac VM for a work application. Possibly adding a few containers. I'm good at building normal gaming PCs but when it comes to servers and performance, I'm not sure what to expect. My current systems are a desktop running windows 10 as a Plex server with 8TB (RAID 5) of storage and an Nvidia 1080 GTX graphics for h/w transcoding. That is backed up by a Netgear NAS with dual 6TB mirrored drives. I have a Mac mini that I host a server for app testing for work. The hardware is listed below, feel free to blow me out of the water if I don't think i should be going that route. Budget: ~$2000 Case: Roseville RSV-L4312 (12 SATA drive bay, existing) $0 Motherboard: ASRock X299 TAICHI CLX LGA 2066 Intel X299 SATA 6Gb/s ATX Intel Motherboard (10 SATA connectors, PCIE configuration: x16,x4,x16,x8) ~$400 CPU: Intel Core i9-9820X 10-Core (44 Lanes of PCIE 3.0) ~$700 CPU Cooler: Noctua NH-D9L $80 RAM: 32GB @ DDR4 4000 (unchosen) RAID Card: LSI 9300-8i SATA/SAS Host controller (connecting last 2 drive bays running on x16 lane [but only using x8]) ~$150 Storage: 6x Seagate IronWolf NAS 6TB, (move over existing hard drives to fill all 12 slots) $0 provided by work Graphics: Nvidia 1080 GTX (existing, running on x16 PCIE lane) Power Supply: Seasonic Prime Ultra 1000W 80+ Titanium ~$300 Network: Intel X540T2 Dual 10Gbps NIC (connected to 10G port of SG350, running on x8 PCIE lane) $100 Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you.
