  1. 4 Gamers 1 CPU

    You're not going to get anywhere with a H110 board. They're designed for running Microsoft Outlook in an office PC, they're pretty much gimped for anything useful. H170 would be the lowest you should consider. However, if you want anything resembling decent gaming performance, then you need to be looking at with an i7-6850K on X99 or a i7-7800X on X299, or perhaps an AMD Threadripper. That way you get a board and CPU and has enough PCI-E lanes to feed 4 GPUs. Anything less than that, you're wasting your time and money.
  2. ASUSTOR AS series...

    QuickSync. Hardware transcoding is the way forward, making this whole 2000 CPUMarks per transcode a thing of the past. To answer the OP, yes it'll work fine. Just modprobe the Intel GPU drivers, and pass it though to the Plex Docker, job done.

  4. unRAID OS version 6.4.0 Stable Release Available

    So many questions. It's almost like people never bother looking at any of the threads in the pre-release forum.
  5. UEFI strategy

    The benefit is some newer machines are UEFI only, legacy BIOS is gone.
  6. unRAID for small Architecture Office

    Well, if you'd like a suggestion, have a look at a Thecus NAS. You can get them running Windows Storage Server. The W4810 runs great, and has 4 bays ready to take drives. The OS runs off a 64GB SSD that's built in.
  7. Firefox Quantum = WOW

    Yeah, I'm using Firefox on Android (Pixel 2). No problems, even Pixel Launcher can use Firefox as it's browser. Chrome never runs on my phone.
  8. Bonding works fine for me on 21b - I'm using a HP 1920-24G switch with 802.3ad bonding.
  9. Sorry, also just noticed this again. For SSD I try and stick to drives with high endurance ratings, and MLC flash. Which would mean Samsung 850 Pro, Sandisk Extreme Pro, Corsair XT, and some of ADATA's SSDs (I'm saying these because they're the ones I have in use that I know are reliable MLC SSDs). I'm currently using an Intel Pro SSD 5400s which is a TLC SSD, but it came in an Optiplex I stripped for parts, so it was effectively free so I don't care if it burns up in a few months. So far it's been fine. I'm only using it because it was on the top of the pile, and new, when I was building my server. I believe it has an endurance rating of 288TBW which is pretty high for a TLC SSD.
  10. Replacing both drives in a cache pool

    The way I do it is to run the Community Apps backup option to back up to the array. Once that's complete just shut down, swap in your new cache drives. Set up the cache and then run the CA Restore option. Then you just have to set up your Dockers from the "Previous apps" in CA (all the config will be filled in for you, so just go through each one and run them again).
  11. HW transcoding

    Confirming this method also works on a Celeron N3160.
  12. unRAID OS version 6.4.0-rc21b available

    Yet a few hours later, with nothing at all happening on the server apart from a reboot.... It'll probably have changed again later. The inconsistency is bugging my OCD.
  13. unRAID OS version 6.4.0-rc21b available

    4.02GB. Which is about right. However, is this a new thing? It always reported 20-odd GB use before.
  14. unRAID OS version 6.4.0-rc21b available

    So, this is odd. My cache drive reports 5.92GB used, but clearly this is nonsense as the Docker.img is 20GB and is on the cache drive.
  15. X10SBA is a good board, I had one here. The only thing about it is the 4 additional SATA ports are run by a Marvell controller, so if you use VT-d the wheels can fall off unRAID pretty quick. I had VT-d disabled, and it worked fine for me though. Unfortunately the poor thing was killed in it's prime thanks to a bad PSU that nuked it.
