    I had push pull on both the motherboad and drive side of the case. So I had an intake fan blowing on the drives and then an exhaust fan to pull air out behind the drives. Same thing on the motherboard side. In fact I think I had two intake fans on the motherboard side and one exhaust.

    Just realized I never posted an update since I upgrade my server to an EPYC 7320p. Just figured I do this for historical purposes. Nothing much to say other than since implementing HW Transcoding I realized I have less need for CPU cores and I was after less power usage/heat being that I pay $0.25 per kwH by me and my server sits in a closet.

    What is the power draw with the new setup?

    Hard to know the exact number for the server as I have more than just my server on the UPS. But since upgrading my average UPS power draw is roughly 80-100w less.

    @IamSpartacus is that a vanilla 1660 for HW transcode or are you modding it? Or is that middle PCIe card a Quadro or something?

    Vanilla 1660. Using a patch to unlock unlimited streams. You'll see earlier in this thread I was able to get 18 simultaneous transcodes in Plex and 27 in Emby.
