  1. In regards to a cache drive... I see some people use a 1TB SSD. Isn't that overkill? I believe something like a 128GB SSD would work just fine.
  2. Okay thanks. I am new to the forums too. I noticed you have to have the site open in a browser to get alerts. You don't get e-mail notifications. I would suspect you could probably set that up in the settings some place.
  3. Okay, I think I understand now. If I install apps, and docker containers, all the apps/programs, and their settings would be installed on the drives in unraid. I vaguely remember people installing dockers and things on the drives. I never ran a raid before. Thus, I don't have any issues with a controller.
  4. Yeah, I have seen a few installation videos. I read the booting section of the wiki... You said that the USB is just for booting the OS. Where is the OS installed? If it's on a drive... and I reinstall unraid... it would wipe it out. I guess this is what I am trying to wrap my head around.
  5. I seen a lot of people put unraid on a USB stick. I thought you just used it for installation. I didn't know it ran off USB. That would be good. As you said, I can just back it up. Thanks.
  6. I wanted to build an unraid server. I was planning on running windows on VM on top of unraid. I started to think, "If I have to reinstall unraid I will probably lose all my data?" Of course, I will back up my data but It would take some time to transfer the data. I am projecting a usable 24TBs. Transferring data from the back up would be the last resort. I didn't want to use a raid card. I was concerned that it might fail and I will lose everything. I recently learned that motherboards support RAIDs... that seems a bit more promising. I wanted to run unraid because I want to run a Plex media server. I have been into 4K videos and I need a lot of space. I also want to run Nextcloud and of course Virtual Machines. I am considering a motherboard based array. But that would make unraid pointless. At this point, I don't know which route I am going to take. I would not use unraid if there is a NAS solution out there for windows. I guess my main questions are that if I take the raid motherboard route, would I lose my data if reinstall windows(Windows would not be part of the RAID. It would be on an SSD). Would I lose my data if I use unraid and reinstall unraid? I think yes, if so is there a way to avoid this?
  7. I ran into a big issue. As originally stated... I was going to use unraid as my OS. You need Windows to use all the RGB stuff. I am not sure if it would work through a VM. I picked out an Intel CPU and just decided to go with an external raid device. I went with Intel because of the thunderbolt three. But now... I am thinking that the RGB would be quiet annoying. At first, it might look cool. But when it's constantly in your face day and night it would be annoying. I am completely dropping the RGB stuff. Went back to AMD. I decided I will build two computers. A little server and my main PC(The 2700x) On pcpartpicker.com I got a server for about 250 dollars. I came back to the forums to check the recommend motherboards.
  8. Yeah, I mentioned that I could build a loop if needed. But the issue is the reservoir. They usually go where the hard drive cage is. I need a good amount of hard drives That's why I was leaning towards the AIO. Could I replace the fan on the Dark Rock Pro 4 with an RGB one?
  9. The dark rock pro 4 looks nice. I am looking for some RGB, thus more along the lines of liquid cooling. Something that works with Mystic Sync. I came across Cooler Master - MasterLiquid ML240R RGB.
  10. Okay, yeah you're right. It's Mystic Sync compatible. I went with the Gaming Pro Carbon. The cooler I plan on getting is the Thermaltake - Water 3.0 360 ARGB Sync Edition 56.45 CFM Liquid CPU Cooler. I am starting to think it might be a bit of overkill for this system. I don't know if you have any recommendations.
  11. I picked the VI Hero. I got a little warning, It says. " Warning! Some AMD X370 chipset motherboards may need a BIOS update prior to using Pinnacle Ridge CPUs. Upgrading the BIOS may require a different CPU that is supported by older BIOS revisions. " I picked the VI Hero because of aura sync. I already picked out a cooler and it does use Aura sync. I could pick a diffrent cooler, for mystic sync or whatever. But I am trying to get this over with.
  12. The issue with that board is the SATA ports. It has four. I need about six sata ports for the hard drive. I usually shoot for eight, something might need one besides the hard drives. These appear to be my only option. I attached a picture.
  13. Okay, thanks. What about the processor? I can wait until the new ones are released. What is a good recommendation in regards to the new processors coming out? (As I said I don't know how they're named).
  14. For the most part, yes, that is what I meant. I also might want to transcode 4k to 720p. I am using a laptop, it would take like six hours. The threadripper can do it in thirty minutes (I did the math). It does 121 frames per second, my computer does ten frames per second.
