Yea I run a large raid set with zfs; I don't strickly require ecc but the rest has to be rock sable. I've wasted too many hours on flakey boards that fall apart on high i/o load.

And with a huge flood of cheap Intel server hardware, it's hard for most people to justify AMD. I'm hoping this new traction gives us more options in the next few years.

Ironically, i'm seeing a lot of hardcore Unraid/Plex supporters considering the high core AMD variants, since it doesn't rely as much on ECC as something using ZFS would, but losing a copy of Jaws 2 isn't as critical for most people.
