What CPU is in your Plex server?

I have two of these cards, so I'm interested to know how its performance compares to CPU transcoding. I currently have a Geforce 210 in my server just for video output and use CPU transcoding.
I dont run GPUs at all since I run servers with IPMI, but both are haswell gen E3's and I run like 11VMs. The CPUs do not have quicksync support from Intel and the VM wont pass that through anyway. So with 4K the CPUs just cant do it. I can run a few 1080p streams but thats about it.

The plan, again is to install this (no monitor etc) and just pass it through to the VM and see what I get. If not I'll just build out a server to fill my 3rd empty chassis (My second server is currently on fail over duty) and make it Plex dedicated and install the GPU in that instead (again not really providing vid output.)

Brand new DNA/RNA sequencing machine on the left. It has a GV100 built-in. Pretty nuts spec. This one can generate about 150Gbp data per run. To put it simply, that is about 50 human genome worth of data. Whole genome, from telomere to telomere genome, not those 23andme gimmick.

Also new handheld device. It has some sort of customized nvidia GPU built in for processing power.

You could just fix it :p :).

Here's some what a guide on it, although might have to replace the switch but still

Not sure why it was so hard to get apart. Its a press fit or glued at some point.
I wouldn't go and try to clean it unless you having issues FYI
Yes I have fn cats

EDIT:

Ok I'm calling it. Birth 8/6/2014 death 11/8/2019

Over 5 years, one switch gone and the plastic button just wont spring back. Its toast






That guide is wrong. It says the wheel is free at this point. Its not you have two very tiny springs and a pin to deal with

Picked up an ARRIS SURFboard mAX™ Plus Mesh AX Wi-Fi 6 Router System (W130) that had a yellow tag listed $429, reg 599, not sure why, I scanned it with my Walmart app and it showed $124. I went and got the gal to open it to have her scan ot with her TC70, sure enough came up 124. I thought hmmmm.
Fast forward, about 30 minute's later I ended up getting very dizzy, to the point I had to sit on a cooler ledge and asked a near by person to page my wife on the walki takie over. She showed up and while a co manager was there helping to hold me up, someone got a power chair to get me to the front and the wife clocked out to take me home.
So that evening before the wife got off work she called me and asked what I still had left on the shopping list . I told her, and then was like "BTW" lol so she went back and sure enough it was still there and she "may" have felt sorry for me and showed up home with the Arris :clap:.
I had tried with Two other router's I've had sitting around to extend my wi fi range since 1. The Motorola/Arris NVG510 is an ATT locked down crapper, 2. if I was EVER to shut down the "PC" apon restarting, it would Not have any internet connection. <ip conflict>
To say that the Arris Mesh is kinda a lil pita to actually install, since you have to use your PHONE to do it :kookoo:
But all said and done it worked and now have excellent coverage
Even just using the "wireless" back to the base it's 78 ft away and thru 4 wall's and one with metal and the 65" Tv in the way. Still has 1+Gb connection, wired it can do 7Gb back haul.
The test to the base was about 100 ft outside.
Since I only have a 6mb/768kb ISP it's nice to be able to at least watch stream's or movie's with out having to find a "sweet spot" 045.PNG004.PNG

Upgraded to the G502 Hero, step one, rip apart and replace scroll wheel with G900. It's lighter with a better sensor, thinner cable, and the scroll wheel left/right click are much easier to trigger vs the original G502. Had to track down a compatible driver since the new ghub is garbage with 4 active processes, I found this here version which is far lighter.

Much better than the Void headsets imho, as it sits properly on your head. However, they're quite heavy and I was getting neck pain from wearing mine.

Mine might come in as early as tomorrow. If they do, I'm planning on playing some BL3 with friends. Will try to give you my thoughts on how they are.

Picked this up for $150. My MSI B450 Gaming Pro Carbon burned out. Its USB 3.0 ports stopped working, and the USB xHCI controller has a "device cannot start" error in Device Manager. Only the USB 2.0 ports (9-pin headers) work. The unwarranted update to AGESA 1.0.0.3ABBA dialed up boot times to kingdom come. I think I've had enough of this board. I thought about taking the X570 route, but at this time, nothing appeals to me, the sub-$200 X570 boards are rubbish, and I won't need PCIe gen 4.0 for years. So sticking to B450 and getting one of the more premium boards was an obvious choice.

The ASUS Strix-E is a "late entry" to ASUS' B450 lineup and an answer to the MSI B450 GPC. It has a better CPU VRM, WLAN, and a little more premiumness than the Strix-F. There's no X470 Strix-E in ASUS' lineup, which goes to show the kind of damage MSI B450 Gaming Pro Carbon did to the sub-$200 AM4 motherboard segment.

Anywho, the board:

I don't think it will affect boost, but PBO was kinda impossibru on MSI due to lack of voltage offsets. Didn't check if they added them with later BIOS updates. I hear ASUS BIOS is more generous. We'll see this weekend when I build with this board.
