Lavoslav Posted March 12 Share Posted March 12 (edited) So my Asrock X399 Taichi motherboard died on me and i need advice on replacement / upgrade. I have not been following tech for last few years due to career change and am lost on what to buy. Can be AMD or Intel. Size is not an issue since case is full tower. Usage: - Machine runs 24/7 - Windows VM (main, gaming) - Linux VM (secondary, light gaming) - HomeAssistant VM - 10 to 15 docker containers (few game servers, *arr stack for entertainment, Frigate+Google Coral for surveilance, Nextcloud, Bitwarden, local DNS, etc.) Hardware i wish to reuse as follows: Storage: 1x NVMe SSD - cache 2x NVMe SSD - passthrough to VMs 5x spinning HDDs - parrity / storage Graphics: 1x Nvidia GTX 1060 - passthrough to VM1 1x ATI Radeon HD7850 - passrhrough VM2 (will upgrade to a better ATI card "soon") Memory: 8x Corsair Vengeance LPX 8GB DDR4 (64Gb total) Other: 1x PCIe X4 length, USB card (passing through individual USB ports to VMs) 1300W Power supply Full tower case Please advice what to upgrade to MB/CPU wise. I'm open to all suggestions, including not reusing some of the hardware. Budget for MB+CPU+cooler around 1000EUR if i keep current RAM. Willing to spend double if it makes sense and i need to switch to DDR5 mem. Tywm! Edited March 12 by Lavoslav Quote Link to comment
