  1. No, AMD has bundled very good air coolers, called the Wraith. Some Ryzen 5s come with a Wraith cooler, check to see. I agree on the B450 board. There are some great boards out there. Good luck!
  2. Hey everyone, hope everyone is staying safe out there during this terrible times, I have an Intel Xeon E3-1225 v2 Ivy Bridge CPU in my desktop, and I'm upgrading. I'd like this system to become a server, running Linux. It will primarily be serving movies with Plex. I have a question re: transcoding. I wanted to see which would be better at H.264 and H.265 decode and encode, Intel HD Graphics P4000 with QSV, or NVENC on a GeForce card, probably either a 1030 or a 1050. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance! PS: I'm not sure which forum to post this in. Move it if you need to.
