Danielmid's Completed Build: Overkill Plex Server

Danielmid submitter 1 Build 1 point 9 months ago

The plan is to move it to the garage once the rack is completed, but I'm sitting next to it right now (the top still isn't installed yet) and my desktop tower is louder.

6 - 120mm fans on molex power (full speed) and 2 - 80mm fans on motherboard control for rear exhaust, plus the 2 cpu fans.

Odd thing I just noticed while looking up the max memory is that my printed manual has a different layout for installing DIMMs than the website manual. Printed manual had me populate all 4 sticks right by one CPU, online manual has them split 2 and 2 which makes way more sense to me. I'll likely change it at the next shutdown opportunity.

Video transcoding takes power and I wanted to future proof myself a bit as my number of devices that can play back seems to be steadily increasing.

Also, Stage 2 is already underway where I add video cards to a VM for mining, this thing needs to earn its keep!

Supports I think a max of 512gb with the right sticks, way more than I'll ever need, or have installed!

Originally the plan was to put in a higher end gpu and do VM gaming, but that plan changed after I had parts in house already, so here we are.
