  1. thanks guys, I have been able to resolve my issue!
  2. Hey guys, not really sure where to post this.. I just built a pc to run some of my home process. I have been using teamviewer to remote in, however if the pc i'm remoting to doesn't have a monitor plugged in, I just get a black screen.. is this normal? and/or how do i change this so I don't need to have a monitor attached all the time?
  3. I have completed my first build, I'm trying to install windows 10, after it enters the initial screen of windows it loads for 10-15 mins and then errors about an unexpected restart, though no restart appeared to happen
  4. after some pricing and reading, I think I may downgrade to the 2200g and ill probably skip the GPU for now until I am ready to set up the camera system. also makes the budget work alot easier lol
  5. Case: Fractal design r5 motherboard: MSI PRO B450-A PRO MAX AM4 AMD B450 SATA 6Gb/s ATX AMD Motherboard CPU: Ryzen 5 3600 + (stock cooler) RAM: Kingston HyperX Fury Black Series16GB (2x8GB) DDR4 3200MHz GPU: MSI GeForce GT 710 PSU: Corsair TX Series TX550M 550W 80 PLUS Gold Certified storage: already have anything, or any compatibility issues im missing?
  6. so, Case: Fractal design r5 motherboard: MSI PRO B450-A PRO MAX AM4 AMD B450 SATA 6Gb/s ATX AMD Motherboard CPU: Ryzen 5 3600 RAM: 1-2 8GB sticks GPU: ? PSU: ? storage: already have
  7. AMD Ryzen 5 3600 6-Core/12-Thread 7nm Processor? that should be plenty. MOBO and GPU suggestions? criteria for MOBO is, gigabit Ethernet, 2 ram slots for 8-16bg? and able to get up to 8 drives attached
  8. ya, a couple transcodes max. doesnt need to be way over kill, but id like room to play with
  9. with Blue Iris, if i went ryzen would I also need a little GPU? 2 in house plex streams and 2 remote streams would be the heaviest load. I kinda just plan to run windows 10, the built in raid1 system should suffice for recorded video. not very worried about making a raid for media
  10. Im very open to changing CPU/MOBO configs. it will be used like a server, however ill probably config it pretty much just a pc. for my media im not too worried if a drive died, it would suck.. but not life destroying. when adding surveillance in the future i would like to create a raid 1 setup
  11. the CPU choice was based on something claimed as good for blue iris. but I'm definitely open to changes, 1-2 cameras, 1080p res, don't have a frame rate yet. I plan to use my 4TB drive for camera recording. I also have 6TBx2 and an 8TB drive id like to hook up. so 4HDD to start, but would like to have the ability to expand to use all 8 drive slots if I ever need
  12. Budget (including currency): under $800 cad Country: Canada Workloads that it will be used for: staring as a files backup and Plex server (or emby/jelly), eventually probably adding outdoor camera surveillance Other details: building a home server to store my media and important back up files, eventually adding security recording. I'm looking at: Case: Fractal Design Define R5 Black Mid Tower Case (FD-CA-DEF-R5-BK) - looks nice and accommodates plenty of drives CPU: Intel Core i5-9600K Coffee Lake 6-Core/6-Thread Processor- plex and file back up doesn't require a ton of work.. also supposedly has great performance for blue iris (the software id like to expand to for surveillance. MOBO: I have no idea and need help with this need to configure a way to hook up 6-8 hard drives RAM: 1 stick of 8gb ram? (adding a second in the future when/if needed) not overly concerned about this, Storage: I have 23TB of HDDs already soo... wont be buying any lol power supply: haven't looked at this yet so basically, looking for help with picking a motherboard, PS, and confirmation that my CPU is a sufficient choice
