Got the new server setup, well the start of it at least. The motherboard and cpu (from ebay) both work fine. The RAM too, although the auto fast speeds XMP profile doesn’t seem to work. That led me down a rabbit hole which ended up on a 200 page forum thread about the motherboard, with custom BIOSes and all sorts. In the end I just closed all the tabs and thought, I don’t care, it’s a server, I want stability and I’ll probably not notice the difference. It was also midnight too.

Today I’m going to install Proxmox and then migrate the ZFS pool over, setup the services and then decommissiong the old server. Probably not all tonight though.
