Easily. What you are playing with? Trick is to get Roku or something such that your plex host does not need to transcode. Although this can do transcode.
I have a T30 with a G4400 that can do up to 2x 1080p transcodes easily. This will easily handle 4-6.

So will this work well for blue iris? I keep seeing them recommending i5/i7. I'm currently running a QNAP and it can't handle the cameras, the recordings are choppy and I've played with the frame rate, resolution, and quality. I'm just thinking I need to get one of these or something similar.

Dumb question: would this be so good or no good for a Blue Iris security camera server?

Due to security vulnerability affecting all Intel chips with HT--with no fix in sight due to the fact that it's a hardware vulnerability--you should disable HT even if it has it anyway.
Most threat actors that would go after hyper threading are not going to be attacking Joe blow's vm home lab. If they are going after him I'm sure there are much easier targets on that network. I wouldn't worry too much about having HT on in a home lab.

I think that depends on how many cameras and what res they are running. This is like a 7th gen i5 or 8th gen i3.

T30 can have 4x3.5, 2x2.5 HDD if add extra PCI-SATA adaptor, how about T40? I care more about how many HDD it can connect to. As for most server use, CPU difference maybe not that big. Of course there is $50 difference.
I built one with 7 3.5 drives with pci sata card a month ago.

Is there any reason the spec sheet says 4TB hard drives are the max size allowed? I have some 12TB drives I'd like to throw in here and don't know if there's some weird software limitation.

How did you mount the drives? Is there an accessory cage for the 3.5 drives?

I run W10 Pro on the T30. All my drivers work. Which ones have problems?
Graphics. Apparently the WinServer 2016 graphics driver has the same kernel, and worked up to the 1903 update, but that's where I stopped.

Pretty decent deal considering the processor is $225 or so online. The ecc udimm ram is also about 2x the cost of registered modules and a supermicro C234 chipset board would normally set you back $175 or so. Not a bad deal to setup a small domain controller,esxi server or plex media server.

Power supply and case are cheap crap, but system looks like it is standard ATX and parts can be swapped or changed easilly.

I haven't experienced any issues with the default graphics driver, what would one be looking out for?

You can alao do a hd home run extend or a tablo, which will transcode mpeg2 to mpeg4 in hardware

I run a T30 specifically/exclusively for Blue Iris, I have 2 cameras. I'm sure the T40 would do just as well. Although I'm not sure I'd try to run more than 4-6 cameras.
