This reminded me to post:

2gb. Was a good amount 3 years ago, and it is hard to see that changing just because more is cheaply available (to people with ddr3 systems..)

32 GiB DDR3 Single-bit ECC (4x 8GB sticks)

This was the case till my ASRock Rack C2750D4I died 2-3 months ago.


Last month I built a Ryzen 7 5800X with a B550 MB, and put 128 GiB DDR4 non-ECC (4x 32 GiB sticks) in it.

64GB although I could do with more, I have multiple virtual machines spun up at once for development work (Windows 10, Fedora, the latest Ubuntu in addition to the oldest Ubuntu LTS which is used to build AppImages.  I also have VM's set to be CI agents.


My NUC which runs proxmox also has 64GB.

I run on 48GB for the time being, migrated my stuff from proxmox to pretty much docker containering and that works nice, still having some issues here and there to fully understand the unraid architecture from the getgo but getting along with it nicely.


As others have said before: in terms of pure storage performance other systems maybe faster but here I am looking to the overall solution which grants all possibilities to me in a single box, my overall rating for Unraid is great!


I was able to consolidate 3 physical boxes into one which I was after to begin with

I have a fairly small setup compared to others, but am looking to add more responsibility to my Unraid server.  My server has 16GB, but will be growing that in the future.  16GB currently handles everything that I use it for at the moment.  I am using it mainly for Plex (well at least that is what gets used the most).  Future Home Assistant type services will be added as well, which are running on my Raspberry Pi.  Oh... yeah... I have a Minecraft server running on there too for my kids, but they seem to have moved on to Fortnite :/. 


Once this pandemic has moved on, I will probably start building out some sort of lancache for some fun little local lan parties at my house.

32GB of DDR4 3600 paired with my AMD Ryzen 7 2700x ... I don't really run any VMs so this is more then enough for my system. I mainly use my system for Plex and all the transcoding is handled by my Nvidia Quadro P2000.

192GB (not a typo) DDR3 ECC


It was free to me so I might as well install it (screw energy savings right?)


I run about 4 VMs and 25 dockers and only use about 10GB at any given time. If anyone has any cool projects that I could do with that much RAM, let me know.

M/B: Supermicro X10DRi

CPU: Dual Xeon E5-2680v4

RAM: 4 x 32GB DDR4 ECC

Running 1 Win 10, 3 windows server 2019 and a few sql server dockers for development work plus 20 others dockers for personal stuff. RAM usage is about 70%.

64GB.  I really wish that Unraid supported lxc containers though, I have a NUC running Proxmox which has a load of containers set up which I use for CI (TeamCity), but I need more containers to handle other builds and the NUC has no more ram (it's got 64GB as well) and unraid would be ideal if it supported them.

I currently have 32GB DDR3 RAM in my main server and a I7-2600, running a load of dockers, a linuxmint VM and a Windows 10 VM. I have some spare hardware so going to build a backup server with 16GB RAM and a Xeon E3-1220.
