  1. Thanks for the info, I thought I checked well ... Normal RAM it is :) which speed won't really matter for this workload I guess? I found some corsair vengeance 16gb (2x8gb) 3600mhz for 65 euros.
  2. I'll stick with the 3200G - plenty enough for Plex (no transcoding) en still headroom for other stuff to play around. Power consumption is not really an issue because I have solar panels and have an excess of electricity I won't put a dedicated gpu in, because i don't really need it and the case (fractal design node 304) is not that big. This cpu supports ECC right? There is not much price difference to normal RAM, but will it really matter? Or should I just stick with some 16gb DDR RAM?
  3. I think the ryzen 3 3200g is the middle ground: not quite low end but also not high end. It will be possible to transcode with this thing but not ideal I think. Only playback device will be the LG OLED55C9. What is the beter option? Stay with the 3200g or choose a more budget frindely lower end CPU/APU? NAS will be used mainly for plex and automatic photo upload from 2 smartphones and a bit of tinkering with all the freenas posibilities.
  4. I don't have a plex pass (and not willing to), so the CPU will do transcoding. Is the ryzen 3 3200g the best option (around that price point)? Or would it be better to wait for zen 3 and the new intel ones?
  5. Most of the use will be for Plex. Some of the content is just normal 1080p quality but for some of the movies it is 4k HDR. I don't quite understand the transcoding part: when does a file need transcoding to play on the tv and when not?
  6. Hi everyone, I'm looking to build my first NAS system, but I would like some advice on parts etc. My use case will be mostly for Plex (to my LG oled ), backup of some important data and bulk storage for all my photo's Redundancy is important because I don't want to lose the photo's. I would like to keep the build small, quiet and power efficient. Here is what I came up with (case will be the Node 304).

What are your thoughts about: - CPU: too much for a NAS build of just fine? - RAM: is ECC is my case worth it? Not much (consumer-grade) processors support it. - NVME drive just for the os - OS? Any other sugestions for me?
  7. What is your budget? WIll the router/ acces point have enough wifi coverage?
  8. I'll be doing another project: improving the wifi at my parents house. Same base case: not enough coverage and speed. A couple of uap ac lites should do the trick just fine (we can run wires, luckily). I was wondering if I should install a edgerouter x or just connect the AP's to the current ISP modem/ router. For around 50€ its kinda hard to not do it. But I don't want to overcomplicate it. They don't care for any of the additional functionality. As long as the wifi is good enough
  9. Thanks for the help! I'm looking to order it soon. There will be an update posted here
  10. There are 2 ethernet ports next to each other by the tv. 1 ethernet from modem in garage to udm and 1 from udm to switch in garage where all the ethernet cables come together. So UDM in living room otherwise lots of lost signal to front yard and garage. This should work good I think?
  11. Gpu would hit a max of 74c on rainbow six siege after 3 hours of gameplay and the cpu a max of 68-70c Those are perfectly fine temps by me. What are your thoughts here @burh4n ?
  12. What are the cpu/gpu temps during normal use of the PC?
  13. You could try it with your components. I don't know how the heat output of your cpu/gpu compares to mine (I5 4690 and GTX970). With all exhaust fans you will probably need to clean dust out of your pc more often. How do you measure the temps? I do it with the NZXT fan/rgb controller software (CAM).
  14. That is true. I just realised I have the same case lol #facepalm My setup is: on the rear and on the top side an exhaust fan and the radiator on the front also exhaust. This way my system stays pretty cool (max about 50-55 ish) Kraken X62 is mounted on my GPU (gtx 970). I have no idea is this is the ideal situation, but it works for me.
  15. Those temps are absolutly fine for this use case: both GPU and CPU maxed out. In real world usage this won't be the case. The reason these are a bit on the higher side considering the water cooling is that the air gets warmed up by the gpu and then passes the radiator. So the cooling capacity is much less this way. What were the airflow issues?
