Recommendation for CPU/Motherboard - Linux VM only

Recommended Posts

I have to upgrade my actual Unraid server (Intel Xeon CPU E5-2670v3)


    Linux VM / Docker / Kubernetes 
    I run around 10 linux VM (Centos) (for my clients [use postgresql/mysql/nginx/elasticsearch/etc..]) and Kubernetes for some tests
    I don't use GPU passthrough. (only linux servers/VM)
    I don't use transcoding.
    I don't play game on this system / no Windows OS


Actual Disks:
    Parity 6To + 3 x 6To + 2 x 4To (all WD Red)


I search a very stable solution (cpu/motherboard), I consider 2 solutions:

Will have minimally 64Go of RAM.

Solution 1:
        Intel Core i9-10900K
        ASUS ROG Strix Z490-E ??
        or Gigabyte Z490 AORUS ELITE AC ??


Solution 2:
        AMD RYZEN 9 3900X
        ASUS ROG Strix B450-F Gaming II AMD AM4 ??
        or Asus ROG STRIX B550-F (no wifi) ??
        ASUS GeForce GT710 ?? something cheap with a fanless graphic card.. only use for unraid installation and bios configuration.

Can I have some recommendation ?
