Just from the feature set comparison, you seem correct.

Emby hmm?

Since when does kodi transcode? Kodi just plays the source.

Plex only transcodes media when syncing to a portable device

It should when ever the device doesn't support the format of the media. Syncing or streaming doesn't matter, if it is not in a format the device can use it will make it. Now there is probably a setting to always transcoded when syncing.

Speaking of Plex......

Custom Plex / Folding Server

OS: Windows 10 Pro
Case: Silverstone GD08
CPU: 2x Intel Xeon E5-2620 V4
Motherboard: Asus Z10PE-D8 WS
Memory: Crucial 16GB (4x 4GB) ECC Registered DDR4 2133 MHz
PSU: Corsair AX860
OS HDD: Samsung 950 PRO 256GB M.2 SSD
Storage HDDs: 3x WD 6TB Red 5400 RPM (Intel RSTe RAID5)
Server Manufacturer: Custom made by me.

I run this as a headless server operating 24/7 for streaming Plex to a few friends (and myself), and for CPU folding. With all 32 threads running 100% 24/7, I'm pulling about 180W and getting about 60K PPD.

Although this board has 2 ethernet ports, I'm only using 1 since I'm running a VPN. Considering how long it took to get the various programs to work with the VPN (especially Plex for remote access), I kind of regret not looking into how to direct traffic from specific programs to a specific port. Maybe in the future...

After spending nearly $5000 on this, I decided to hold off on getting a GPU for folding (1060 vs 1070 anyone?), and will be installing additional 6TB Red drives as needed. I was originally planning on installing 32GB of RAM, but honestly don't think I would every need that much for my use.

(I'm sorry, but it's not pretty).









I had to cut the ODD bay in order to fit the cooler on CPU 2.

This is exactly what I wanted to do as a 2620v4 build for an ESXi whitebox, how much power draw is idle or just plex transcode and the noise?

Pretty nice setup

Idle is about 100W. I never measured it during a transcode, however, I barely see the CPU usage increase when I do transcode.

As for noise, I specifically chose to use Noctua for the 60mm PWM fans along with the Low Noise Adaptors to reduce the noise as much as possible. I was planning on replacing the 120mm stock case fans also, however, there are not bad at all. The PSU was my biggest issue with coil whine at very low loads, however, that has since gone away.

Overall the unit is nearly silent. My headboard is directly on the other side of the wall and I can't hear it at all. My Asus G55VW-DH71 is louder.
