Transferring over some of my sig rig components and I'd be good. Seeing your setup convinces me to go this route.
Except I'll probably go the Linux or Win Server 19 route and use Emby for my media needs.

I have also been on the lookout for the Asrock Rack x470D4U2/2L2T line of server boards.
Would love to get the 2L2T version for onboard 10Gb but just may go with an add-on card depending on prices.
Add a gtx1060,1660 or use my RX 470 for transcoding and that's that.
I'm also planning to add some VM's just for pen-testing too. Anyway thanks for your insight.

EDIT: I'd also like to ask what are your idle and load watts usage. If you happen to know/care.
I would recommend checking out Proxmox. It's Debian Linux based and is an awesome hypervisor. Would be great for you to run Emby and a bunch of VMs, etc... I wouldn't recommend Windows Server for media/VM, as with any Linux/Unix there is less overhead, more stability, and better licensing (usually free! and you can view the source and/or modify it). Avoid unRAID. I encourage you to explore the benefits of the ZFS filesystem (technically OpenZFS but everybody it's usually just called ZFS) and try to work that into your build for storage. Proxmox supports it and here is a guide that might give you some good information: https://forum.level1techs.com/t/how-...ictures/117375 Although this video is old from 2008, here is a great presentation about ZFS:

The Asrock Rack board looks fantastic! Having dedicated IPMI is a huge plus. I was even thinking of buying the Lantronix Spider so I could enable that for this build, but ultimately it's a little too expensive. I run it headless and dread the day I have to go upstairs and lug a monitor to do any troubleshooting. With IPMI that's 100% mitigated. Also with the Asrock Rack I wouldn't have to have a 5450 just plugged in doing nothing. My X370 Taichi probably only had about 6 months of power on time with a very moderate overclock, so fingers crossed I expect it to last a REALLY long time with good airflow and no overclocks going on.

Unfortunately I don't know power consumption and don't have a reliable way to test it. Maybe one of these day's I'll get a Kill-A-Watt, but honestly it's a very low priority for me. Sorry I can't comment on that.
