in 2019 or so my original unraid died it was a supermicro MBD-X9SCM with a G620.
i following the classic guide here (or maybe on reddit) at the time went to ebay and bought X8DT6-F, a pair of L5640 and some 8gb sticks of ram.
i briefly had this up and running, but after attempting to flash the onboard SAS control i could not get it to ever post again
i bought another motherboard and some lsi sas9201-8 cards so i didnt have to screw with killing the mobo again but had a child, then covid happened and i never got back to this project
ive now had renewed interest in selfhosting some stuff and would like to perhaps revive it. Is this hardware even worth continuing with or should I upgrade to something else? my intention is to run proxmox with a few vms for media server the various *arr download managers, some sort of photo hosting(immich?) and syncthing and backup some of my familys laptops that are out and about.
