I built a homeserver, pic related, but soon after I realized that it is pretty much overkill (at the moment).
I only use it for storage, sometimes plex (local) but I want to stream stuff with plex via interwebz (that is why the cpu is kinda strong).
It is a 24/7 machine and therefore I want to underclock it to lower the cost.
How to do it? I have a msi board and can't reach multiplier (duh obviously) or vcore.

Save yourself some trouble and get something like a Raspberry Pi.
>>
>>51387942
How good would a cluster of 2 or 4 rpi's working together be?

Would it be easy to set up?

I'm thinking of doing that for my own home server.

Also, fuck captcha.

>Clustering Pis
Wouldn't know, never tried it, but running a single Pi would be fine as well if you only do storage and HTPC. Streaming over the WAN isn't an issue for the Pi (the bottleneck may, however, be your network speed), transcoding would be a problem for the Pi but why would anyone do so nowadays.
>>
>>51388101
plex requires transcoding if you use subtitles or your device doesn't support the container

Hardly an issue nowadays, right? Even mobile devices all support a wide range of video containers using just regular video players.
>>
>>51390177
Lots of "smart" TVs still don't support all containers and neither do last gen consoles. So if you're pleb it's a problem I guess

I wanna to have a server in my house mainly for storage and because its honestly fun to ssh into it and do stupid shit.

HP Proliant DL380 G6 2x L5520 2.26ghz Quad Core

Would something like that be a dumb purchase, I know little about servers. Right now I rent one from digital ocean to host a mumble server so i know how to use one somewhat/

But I really don't know what to look for in a physical one. Id love suggestions for a low power server that can have like 4-6 3T drives.
>>
>>51390258
I never had a video file my 2 year old Samsung TV couldn't play.
I'm currently using a PI as a downloadbox serving files straight through dlna. Works like a charm.

>>51387015
Have a little i5 with 8gigs of ram running serveral services in/for friends.
>>
Looking for a router for my homeserver thingy but has to support pppoe.
>>
>>51388002 >>51388101

Alternatively I can get a j1900 for an extra $10 than a rpi. I might just do that.

/g/uys, got the weirdest problem.

Trying to ssh in to my servers (two rbpi), but my password isn't accepted and there's no timeout between password attempts. Can't find nothing unusual in /etc/ssh/ssh_config nor /etc/ssh/sshd_config.

Any ideas what it might be? Or where to look? I can only access through ssh or directly to the sd-card (don't have any monitor here atm).
