  1. No luck getting the baremetal install to work on my Asrock ITX Board with an LSI 9211 in IT Mode. Modified the .cfg and it says it can't detect any hard drives. Clearly I'm missing something here..... serial --port=0x3F8 --speed=115200 terminal_input serial console terminal_output serial console set default='0' set timeout='1' set fallback='0' menuentry 'Synology DS3615xs' --class os { insmod fat linux /image/DS3615xs/zImage root=/dev/md0 syno_hdd_powerup_seq=0 netif_num=1 HddHotplug=0 rmmod=ata_piix syno_hw_version=DS3615xs vender_format_version=2 vid=0x0781 pid=0x5571 console=
  2. One last thing to note... (I may have mentioned it but if not....) the PSU I linked is a Flex ATX not a full 1U (slightly smaller). As a result you'll need a bracket to mount it, or just stick something under it like a 2.5 inch drive. note a huge deal breaker, but wanted to at least give someone the heads up. The fact that under 50% load it's silent beats the fact that the 1U server PSU's get loud and hot.
  3. The QC5000 is better than what you have, but save your $$$ unless you plan on running PLEX or other heavy CPU intensive tasks on your nas. The board you listed is an ITX and passively cooled, and it will also fit in the NSC-800 (any ITX will in theory) There are really only 3parts to an Xpenology build (to make it work hardware wise). 1. NIC with supported drivers - 2. storage controller drivers (SATA / SAS / etc.) 3. x86/x64 CPU - (in other words you can't run this on a marvell CPU or other 3rd systems like WD Cloud hardware By going with a supported expansion card (SAS or othe
  4. mini SAS > standard case builds imho. It's quicker / faster / and easier to work on once it's installed. Costs a bit more, but it's worth it. If you want to transcode more than one stream in Plex get a dedicated CPU on an 1150 intel socket or FM2+ board
  5. You can build them cheaper than you can buy them (it's always that case) Mini SAS isn't hard. Just buy a compatible SAS card like the 9211 and make sure it's in IT mode and it's plug and play. The only downside(s) of a non-official build would be the following. Currently doesn't support DSM 6 (coming I'm sure) Doesn't include 4 NIC's for teaming (but if you go with a larger case or build it would). If you don't do NIC teaming it's a moot point. The upsides include the following faster hardware / better hardware support ESXi support / Hyper V support etc. etc. etc.

  7. TBH the quickest (best) way in my opinion is to do the following. 1. Go register your own domain (so you own it....) costs about 10.00 a year 2. Modify your A record to to point from your IP address to your domain 3. Enter your domain name in, and it will reference your A record allowing you to connect without needing a 3rd party 4. ..... 5. Profit! This is what I've done, as I've elected to not run a DDNS or 3rd party tool. **please note** If you have a home internet connection you probably don't have a static IP. As a result you may need to adjust your IP manually ev
  8. If your board supports 3 or 4 pin fan headers just go with a power adapter inbetween - http://www.coolerguys.com/840556089537. ... aQodBzAO1A
  9. Glad we were able to help you out. Best of luck, and let us know if you have any questions. =) p.s. feel free to throw together a few photo's of your build, including transfer speeds using onboard SATA. I'm curious on what you will see performance with with 16GB ram (or even 32 at some point)
  10. solid build overall. Are you planning on going with ESXi?
  11. Just buy a pre-flashed 9211 new on Ebay. They sell them pre-flashed in IT mode with the P19 firmware =) Please also note that if you go with a socket 1150 board you'll need to use a really low profile cooler (the Noctua's are great for this) Link - http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B009VCAJ7W/ FYI the clearance on this cooler is literally 1-2 millimeters - https://forums.servethehome.com/index.p ... xssd.2865/ (look there as this build will just about mirror what you are trying to do)
  12. According to Asrock this board only supports 16GB ram. However Crucial says it runs up to 32GB - http://www.crucial.com/usa/en/qc5000-itx/CT7603505 I would run run a single 16GB stick for now (assuming it runs it with a single slot no problem) FYI The QC-5000 is cheaper on Newegg.com if that's an option for you The 300 watt PSU you listed won't work for the NSC-800. If you can swing it... get the LSI card right away. They go for around 85/95 on Ebay with the link I provided. The reason I suggest this is I haven't tested the QC-5000's onboard SATA. I'm sure it's fine performanc
  13. TBH it sounds like a memory issue. Please run Memtest 86+ overnight (more than 8 hours) and see if it comes up with anything. It could also be memory timings or a failing PSU.
  14. log into the front end of plex and see what is going on. I'm willing to bet it's transcoding or indexing some content for you.
  15. I should also note / mention that you can go with an FM2+ or Intel 11XX series board but it will be more expensive, and you will also need to find a 3rd party cooler to fit in the NSC-800. Any non-SOC board will need to run a Noctua NH-L9I or similar cooler. The clearance is TIGHT >_>
