You should remove the nvidia card. The intel hd is more powerful and efficient.thats what im using dell 7040 sff with an nvidia nvr 510 graphics card.. ssd for windows 120gb samsung. via a ssd cd rom connection ebay 10 bucks . plus another 120gb ssd for weekend clips so I can shut down the nas for maintance and cool down's
improper setup on your part. That card does nothing, it does not support nvidia hardware acceleration. Video Encode and Decode GPU Support Matrixi did for testing purposes.. cpu was over 60% with intel. With nvidia 10-20 HA on!!
the only thing I changed was direct to disk.. I will retest in a week or so. and post a quick video or screenshots..improper setup on your part. That card does nothing, it does not support nvidia hardware acceleration. Video Encode and Decode GPU Support Matrix
Even if it did, it could not reduce cpu from 60 to 10-20. My guess is you enabled direct to disk and or limit decoding in between tests.
when not using d2d blue iris overlays and rotation changes are recorded into the video. It is silly to use that much processing power to do this.Do you know why direct to disk is on by default since it performs so much better this way? What is the benefit of not having direct to disk enabled?
I am running on a Dell Precision 3420 i7-6700 and the motherboard supports the M.2 PCI form factor drive, which I am using as the C drive. Not sure about the Optiplex however I wouldn't be surprised if it also supported a M.2 driveAs others have said, generally, yes.
Bear in mind though being SFF has has its limitations. Typically there is space for only one full-size HDD such as the popular WD Purple surveillance-grade type where the bulk data/video footage goes. The other space for additional drives would be the 2.5" form factor typ. of SSD, for the OS and BI program.
Yes I have a Optiplex 7040 SFF. It has a single 5.25” bay and a M.2 socket on MB for a SSD. Has a thin 9.5mm optical drive.
