Running ESXi+Xpenology+DSM + Google chrome OS + Win 10 OS: Ryzen 5 2600 or Intel i5-9600K

Recommended Posts



I narrowed down my search to ryzen 5 2600 or i-5 9600K - for home NAS and virtualization.

The two resource intesive activities will be 5G oracle database maintenance and queries + Plex + Resilio Sync...everything else (mail server, web server) is very low use.

I intend to instal ESXi on bare metal (Type 1)


What are your thoughts on these two CPU in terms of:

  1. Performance and temperature/cooling req.?
  2. Ryzen 5 2600's support for virtualization; I heard AMD is less mature for virtualization compared to that true?
  3. Installation issues with ESXi and Ryzen 5 2600 (some reported purple screen of death)

Hello, did you come up with a decision and can you share you experience. I'm planning on nearly an identical system and would appreciate any advice.


Thank You
