More POWER!!!

Recommended Posts

So yeah, I'm currently running an Avoton board, the ASRock Rack C2750d4i. It's treated me fairly well, but it's getting on in age and I've just made an investment in two new rack-mount server cabinets so everything is due for a rotation. 
I want to use the avoton board for my backup server, to replace a "temporary", now going on two years, Celeron based solution, due to the extremely low power consumption, and get something with just a bit more oomph for daily operations. 

Running Plex is my primary use, but I also have owncloud and a few other services running. 

Essentially I'm hoping for more snappyness overall. Most of my equipment can do direct-play so transcoding isn't a huge priority. 

I've looked over what's available but it quickly becomes tricky to find hardware when you have some specific needs. 


IPMI is a must. I'm too used to it by now, and it's come in handy once or twice. 

Dual NIC's. I am using gigabit at home still, but future proofing won't hurt me. 

I would prefer ECC memory. 

Performance per watt is a factor. 


Specifically I'd prefer some direct recommendations from other UnRaid users, for obvious reasons, so hit me up! 🙂
