I had that same antec case just sold it the other day with some X58 hardware I had. I also have the 750D which needs a new fascia (broke clips taking the front off for full disassembly... grrr) but is sitting otherwise empty (along with having a tempered glass mod for the side panel). Should really do something with it... hmm.

yes, Ryzen shrugs off these transcodes, it is also aided by a quadro P2000.

P2000 is a great card for plex. It can encode 13 1080p h.265 streams in high quality mode which is a great deal for $350. It is important to note for people looking at PLEX that they must use a Quadro card if they want to be able to use it much, regular GeForce is driver locked to only encode 2 streams max no matter what. This Quadro card is the best bang for buck deal right now on getting a lot of plex streams for minimum money.

I was using the same Supermicro AOC-SAS2LP-MV8 cards to connect my drives as @fg2chase was. Got them because of this thread actually. Unfortunately a major windows 10 OS update caused me nothing but problems on these cards so I replaced my cards with a LSI 9305-24i. It costs a good bit, but allows connecting far more drives on a single card which is nice for me since I dont have to take up 3 PCI-E slots with cards anymore. It also is faster than the other card and runs much cooler. This card has been performing like a champ for the past 2 months I have had it. Just wanted to let people know who are looking at this thread for hardware ideas on connecting a ton of drives.

Hmm that makes me wonder if that’s why my server refuses to update passed 1703....

BSOD every time.

Could be. I dont remember what version it was that I was updating to, but I could only use the version that came with my retail installation media. Any major OS version updates beyond that caused crashes constantly. I figured out it was the sas/sata card because when I removed it entirely from the system it worked fine. Might be a pain to test, but if you have a spare drive you could remove your current OS drive and put the spare in. Do a new win10 install and then try to update the OS. If/when it crashes you could remove the card from the system including drivers for it, and then try the update again. If it works then the card most likely is the issue for you as well. Then you could put the old OS drive back in that way you havent messed anything up for it or have to both with reinstalling any software and such you have been using.


I was looking at replacing the cards with an LSI 9300-8i as it had the newer 12gb SAS connections and had newer drivers available. I realized though that the 9305-24i was cheaper than buying three of the lower end ones I would need to connect my the 22 drives I wanted to eventually use so I just went with the high end card.

I considered this, I really just need to do a backup and then move it all to Linux/unraid or something.

I am also running the same Supermicro AOC-SAS2LP-MV8 cards with NO PROBLEMS. I am on 1803 and updated without issue.


Also I can check what drivers I am using but the latest on the supermicro is from 2/4/2019 11:30 AM. I am on 4.0.0.2020 and the latest driver is 4.0.0.2022

Personally I just had a Synology DS1817+ with 8 x 10TB Seagate Ironwolfs when I wanted loads of space.

With 2 disk fault tolerance, around 60TB of usable space, supports caching with M2 drives and also 10Gb networking, if you don't want to bond the 4 x 1Gb.

Much smaller form factor, much less power and the awesome DSM OS.

The DS1819+ is the new kid on the block, and of course there are drives bigger than 10TB now.
