  1. It will do the job, but will be limited in speed. Don't expect 4K transcoding in real time, it's simply not up to the task. I mentioned initially because as you become more experienced, it's likely you'll want to do more things with the server. Which is understandable, and why I spec'd some serious hardware earlier. If you go for the bare basic hardware, like the Synology unit you've quoted, you'll have a worse experience later as it can't handle the additional tasks. Given your location, I'd suggest you do some research to see if a self-build NAS could be a cheaper opt
  2. That depends entirely on said spec's. As long as it's a fairly recent quad-core proc and has 8+ GB of RAM as well as at least 3 SATA ports it's probably gonna suffice for your needs. At least initially.
  3. On the cheap: see above, used workstation+SSD & pair of HDD's Budget, efficient & reasonably future proof: AMD Ryzen 5 or 7 on B550 mainboard, 32GB RAM, aforementioned SSD&2xHDD combo. Network: 1Gbit suffices. Investment for the future: AMD Ryzen 9 or Threadripper, 64GB RAM, NMVe for the OS and 4xHDD in RAID6 for storage. Network: 2.5 or 5 Gbit would be beneficial. Money no object; AMD EPYC 7742, 256GB ECC RAM (minimum!), SATADOM for booting, NVMe for cache, 2x RAID6 (4xHDD) in RAID1. Network: upgrade to a 40Gbit fibre optic backbone at the premises, with various
  4. B450 and B550 from various manufacturers (Asus, MSI, Gigabyte, Asrock) will do fine. Choose one that offers the features you want for a price you're willing to pay.
  5. Yes, that's the one. Lucky for you it comes with a cooler, the standard AMD coolers are pretty adequate for their job, even under load.
  6. For now, you're better off with the APU variant of your CPU, the 4750G. (<- link) It's more expensive, but does come with a decent, fairly modern GPU onboard. As you won't play modern AAA+ titles, an nVidia 3000 series card is not required anyway and besides, assuming you can find one, they're triple the price the card is actually worth. And a new generation GPU's is already in the works, by not only nVidia, but AMD and Intel as well.
  7. What help do you want exactly? Parts picking, OS choices, configuration, any combination of these, maybe something else? For parts: pick up a used workstation from Dell, HP, Intel or IBM, build post-2016 and make sure it has at least an SSD and 2 storage drives. For the OS: Proxmox, Unraid and TrueNAS are the most commonly used. You can build on any Linux distro and theoretically also on Win-OS, but the latter is strongly discouraged (as it's quite complicated and requires server versions of the OS) whereas on Linux getting the various tools to interact can be a challen
  8. You need to adjust your clock in your BIOS, it's quite some way behind. Install NTP, that really works
  9. There's overkill and ridiculous overkill. This is well beyond that NAIS! PS: good on the ladies to beat the boys
  10. It's a real PITA that overseas shipping makes LTT merch prohibitively expensive for anyone not in the Continental US or Canada. Hopefully LMG gets better rates soon from their shippers so more fans can get their desired merch. Which would lower the rates even further, making it even more affordable for us Europeans at all, and so the circle goes
  11. @HairlessMonkeyBoyAnd how did he "un-overclock" his system? Unless he does a full CMOS reset, you can't be sure any remnants of the OC attempt are gone. further testing needs a methodical approach: test one RAM stick, no drives. If stable, add more RAM. If all RAM is stable, add drives, again, one at a time. And so on.
  12. If you're OC-ing and you have stability issues, DON'T OC! Do a full CMOS reset on the system and let it run some benchmarks for a day or so. Keep it stock speeds, so NO OC! First rule of overclocking: if you can't, don't.
  13. Take some very detailed images from the power board (both sides!!) and put them in here, so we can evaluate where the various traces on it go to.
