Unraid TB3 egpu vs m.2 nvme support

Recommended Posts

Gd day all. 


I'm looking to upgrade my previous server setup. 

The case I have is an Silverstone DS380B. Mini ITX limitation


With 8 3,5" hdd and 4 2,5" ssd, this means I really need that sata controller card I got. 

LSI 9208-8I IBM 46C8989 8PORTS

CPU Ryzen 7 3700x

I am planning to use the server as plex media server with vm gameing capabilities. 

This meens I require to connect a gpu somehow.

I am looking at the following motherboards 

ASRock X570 Phantom Gaming-ITX/TB3

https://www.asrock.com/mb/AMD/X570 Phantom Gaming-ITXTB3/index.asp

X570 I AORUS PRO WIFI (rev. 1.0)


Differences are 1st one have thunderbolt 3 connection <- gpu via TB3

2nd have 2 m.2 nvme connection <- gpu via m.2 nvme to pcie 16 as in the link



One option is to plugi the gpu on the motherboard pcie

And use two m.2 nvme to 5 sata port adapter as in the link



How well will this config be and what about support in unraid? 

Is it plug and play useing any of the ideas for the gpu? 

Which one to recommend? 


I really need that gpu as the cpu don't have any internal gpu to setup my server and have all the things working. 


Pls to hear.
