most likely will end up using windows (remote desktop)

 

i think i would, id potentially have to encode up to 6 streams currently 

 

but on the core thing, my alternative would be the 2400g but the board i'm using doesn't have video out making that a moot point

4c/8t could probably work im just not sure

and my 2700x gets hammered whilst transcoding a 2160 source to my iphone

is faster ram gonna affect the transcoding speed its not for gaming or anything

also the x370 is the only board with 10 sata ports

z370 has 8 which for me is the minimum

for amd 100% sure, infinity fabric is clocked with ram clock, so yeah, for intel 2600mhz is enough. btw there is no board with 10 sata ports, 8 is max on both intel and amd

but there is an amd board with 10

that must mean that it has some extra sata controller on the board then :/ 6 sata + 2 nvme/sata combo is standard I think

there are some cheap pci-e to sata cards, they are ok, if you need more storage, you can always get a raid card, but they are bit pricier
