I recently had the need to build a 2U Server for home and LAN party usage. Since AMD Ryzen is now offering a very interesting 8 core CPU with plenty of PCIe lanes I decided to use a Ryzen 1700x. The server is running Proxmox and is even using GPU passthrough! This post will host the first video and some configuration details that are harder to convey in a video. A second video and post with more information about some hardware and the GPU passthrough will go up after this.
Recently we finished another LANparty, this time it was CampZone 2017! I decided to record some footage at CampZone and do a behind the scenes video, take a look!
Ok, so now we have all the hardware selected, let’s talk OS and storage configurations, a lot of it comes down to personal preference and hardware you want/need to buy!
We’re in the house and have settled down a little bit so it’s time for another walkthrough! This will be the last “overview” walkthrough for a while, time to focus on specific subjects!
It’s already the fifth walkthrough of the new house! Lots has changed again and we are making great progress. This time I’ve even included some nice drone footage!
It’s been a bit overdue but I made a fourth walkthrough about the house we’re building. Lots of changes!
There is a lot of talk on the internet about which cable you need and what you should or shouldn’t get. Some people say CAT7 is never needed and some say you are an idiot if you still buy CAT5e? What do you really need, let’s talk about that! Continue reading Let’s talk about: Which network cable to get
As mentioned in the previous Home Networking video, the house was almost ready for running the networking cables through the walls. This will be the first post about that, and focus on what tools you need to perform the job!
It’s been a few months since the last walkthrough, so let’s take you through the house again and show you what’s changed since last time! Continue reading Home Networking: Third walkthrough
Now that the house is starting to become more finished every day I thought I would show everyone what kind of “backbone” equipment I will be using, a 10 Gigabit backbone! Continue reading Home Networking: Mikrotik 10 Gbps backbone
