I'm going to make new NAS and i'm choosing the Mainboard:
Asrock J3455-ITX for 97Eur
Asrock Q1900-ITX for 89Eur
Wich do you suggest with compatibility and performance?
I'm going to have 2 wd RED 3TB for Photo Safe Backup and one more old 250GB for movies ecc to use with plex.
It looks from the forum that the j3455 works without supporting cpu burst so at 1.5Ghz isn't it?
I see that DS416play have N3060 and sinology says "Dual Core 1.6 burst up to 2.48 GHz" so looks that this model supports CPU Burst. It will be interestig knows if is possible to port its DSM too, for using these new Asrock MB.
I've the Q1900DC-ITX ... just curious whether the J3455 has a reasonable or negligible benefit over the J1900.
hmmm...looking at Intel page, I would say negligible. I wouldnt upgrade from J1900
I just got one for myself because my 212j was so slow on 6.0 that i dont even turn it on. It takes at least 10 minutes to start it.
one CPU runs at 1.5 and another at 2.0
RAM and Video
The only difference I see is in RAM and Video Card (from what I understand video card is not used in transcoding...i'm not sure).
You can install 1866mhz ram that can help with speed.
Also Q1900DC-ITX has 2xSATA3 and 2xSATA2 ports where J3455 has 4xSATA3 ports. I dont think you will saturate those SATA2 speeds, but who knows if you want to add SSD drives, that could be an issue.
i dont think i would go for J4205. Its much more expensive and the only difference is baseclock and a little bit better video card.
