  1. NAS-Board (Asus or Supermicro?)

    Hi, Asus's workstation/server boards are very stable, I've had one for 4 years already and it's still working nicely (the Z9NA-D6). I would take the P10S for it's layout which is better in a rackmounted chassis. Otherwise, you'll be likely getting the same build quality and functionnality.
  2. AMD and ECC FreeNAS solution

    Audio is almost always an added chipset. As long as your motherboard supports it, you can make almost any device passthrough to your vm, the integrated SATA controller is one of the few exceptions I believe.
  3. Which NAS setup to use

    Well I would say for a small business, yes, but nothing overkill. As Kenji said, it also depends on the hardware you have, pentium 4 or newer will be ok to use but use new hard drives and keep the old ones for backup.
  4. AMD and ECC FreeNAS solution

    I agree. ESXi cycle of developpement is slow so the 6.5 version doesn't run perfectly with AM4 cpu's at this time, you'll have to deactivate smt (https://www.servethehome.com/amd-ryzen-working-with-vmware-esxi-6-5/). I would suggest XenServer or why not Hyper V which is also free ( but things get a little more complicated to connect to the server).
  5. May I ask you why exacly this CPU?
  6. AMD and ECC FreeNAS solution

    I've got 2 Asrock AM4 motherboards and I can confirm that they both support ECC ram in ECC mode, even the lowest end ones.
  7. Parts recommendations for a home rackmount nas

    Microservers gen8 are very suitable for that and the base model is really cheap. Gen 10 microserver is still very hard to find and is more expensive. Now building a racked server is fine imo but of course it takes more place. Open Media Vault is very user friendly if looking for an easy to setup solution.
  8. LTT Gaming Server?

    We could do a survey to determine which games most of us are playing. I could also host one myself in the eu.
  9. What to do with a home server

    2$ is indeed a nice price. As Jarsky said, you have a lot of options on learning. Are you planning on doing any nas, domain controller, plex server,...? If you plan to run multiple os, you can already start with vmware esxi (or microsoft hyper v if you wish) to be able to install some virtual machines. And by the way, servers can be very silent.
  10. Ryzen bsod

    Nah, just unlucky I guess but hey, we're 2 to have the roughly the same issue. That's already my second board by the way. Still have a spare DDR4 stick to try but there's not much hope on my side either.
  11. Ryzen bsod

    Yep, I think you'll have to send it back sadly.
  12. Ryzen bsod

    Have you tried to let the ram frequency to 2133 to see if it could solve anything (I doubt it will honestly)? Maybe test with another graphics card if you have one but this really makes me think of a motherboard problem.
  13. Ryzen bsod

    For the moment I also got odd problems with my Ryzen system. Screen just goes black and usb peripherals just shut down. I'd bet also for a motherboard oe ram problem. Do you have any other ram sticks to test it?
  14. Looking for Used Server

    I would add the socket 3647, the newest for xeon scalable. Even more expensive. Built my latest server based on dual socket 2011-0. It works more than perfectly and is not power hungry at all.
  15. Parts recommendations for a home rackmount nas

    If you equip a 2u chassis with quiet fans, you'll end up having something decently silent (I did it and had a quite suprising result, even tried in a 1u chassis). It'll be extra costs however. The supermicro chassis you told about is great but you'll have to work a bit to fit the back i/o. For a long term storage nas, a pentium or celeron is usually enough, if you are sure never wanting to do more than that, I would go that route.
