  1. First Build

    I'm not sure I understand what you mean exactly..? But since the OP is asking for advice, why not give him your recommendations?
  2. First Build

    FX-6300 is from around 2012, why suggest that cpu? G4560 is an excellent choice, great value.
  3. Looking for a couple of 8TB drives in good condition. PM!
  4. I won't be using VT-d on this machine. It will be strictly for NAS functionality. I'm also looking at the new Atom C3000 lite of boards. Any experience with those?
  5. I hear what you're saying, and I might consider that.. When I look at the NM10 PCH specs, it says it uses about 2W. Plus 13W TDP for the Atom. I guess I'm missing something?. (That said, the Supermicro X10SBA for instance does look interesting. €200 and I can reuse the RAM I've already got.)
  6. I was thinking of using a 60GB SSD for the system and dockers, plus a spinner as extra cache for downloads etc, to avoid writing and reading to the array at the same time. That is, if that would be a limiting factor when using an Atom?
  7. Yeah that's my main concern, but I suppose I have to try. My current unraid setup works great, but I need that computer for other stuff so it would be great if I could use this other board.
  8. Thanks, sounds good. How big transfer speed issues? Worth noting for my use case? I've read somewhere unraid 5 could be better with Atom CPU's. Any experience with that?
  9. Worth a try at least, thanks! How much will a spinning cache drive help? The 60GB SSD will not be big enough to cache downloads etc. I'm thinking writing directly to the array could slow it all down a bit? I only use single parity. x4 should have more than enough bandwidth for 6-8 drives?
  10. I'm thinking about moving my NAS functionalities to a separate server. I have an older Zotac board with integrated Atom D5252 that I'd like to use, but not sure if it is powerful enough? Aside from running unRaid and basic NAS-functionalities, I'd like to be able to run Rtorrentvpn, Sickrage and Emby dockers. It will not be doing an transcoding of course, but I'd like to be able to direct stream ~100GB 4k rips to Nvidia Shield boxes over the house without issues. This is the board I've got, plus 8GB RAM & 60GB SSD, (plus maybe a cache HDD) https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813500065 Also I would need to add a SATA controller card to connect the array drives. I have a LSI 9201-16e that I'd like to use. Will that card work in the PCIe x4 slot? Thanks,
  11. [Support] binhex - SickRage

    Is sickrage dead? Last commit on GitHub was back in August. @binhex If so, then what is the recommended alternative to sickrage?
  12. M-ITX Build

    Just check beforehand that the motherboard you get supports the Kaby Lake G4560 out of the box. The older 1** series needs an upgraded bios, while the newer 2** works out of the box. Newly produced boards should come with newer bios though, but hard to know for sure. +1 for SFX
  13. M-ITX Build

    Then the recommended built above (or similar) sounds perfect for you. With the G4560 you get integrated graphics that you can use to pass through to your Linux VM; and you can use the PCIe slot for a SATA card if you need it. The performance will be more than enough for what you need.
  14. 24 Drives Small-Company Build

    Very nice build, thanks for sharing!
  15. M-ITX Build

    If you want to pass through the GPU to VM you need integrated Intel graphics, or GPU card. Do you need Xeon, i.e. server grade HW?
