  1. My current MOBO: BIOSTAR NM70I-847 Also, what is the difference between DSM 5, 6.02 & 6.1 and which is the most stable. Also, which PAT file would i use and what is the difference between them? (3615XS ,3617XS and 916P?) And which Loader Version would i use from the Loader DOWNLOAD link? (1.01a, 1.02b ect.?) I just want the most stable version with decent features that I can upgrade later on * I do intend to run 8+ Drives in the future if my storage needs grow to that later on. Thanks, Josh
  2. Buy manufacturer referb Drives. They work just as well (they all are up to new spec) and cost significantly less. Most are even DOA, which means that they are essentially new.
  3. Hi, I am a student at the University of Cincinnati and am looking to install DSM on one of my home rigs I have: Right now: 2C2T Sandy bridge Celeron (2nd gen intel) Gigabyte MOBO (embedded CPU) 4GB ram Various 1, 2 & 3tb HDDs Vtech 4 port HBA card In the future? (when I upgrade my current gaming rig) 4c8T Xeon E3-1265V3 (I7-4790 equivalent ) on ASUS or Asrock or Gigabyte MOBO 16 to 32gb ram Various 1, 2 & 3tb+ HDDs HBA card Possibly cache SSD Possibly 10GBe if prices are right I would be looking to experiment with hosting a website, and also would like to store video content on this server. I don't know though, what image and loader version to go with. I played around with DSM 6.1 BUT any time I went through the Synology Assistant, It would brick my build. The nas would not get recognized when i boot it back up after using the assistant. So? I am looking for the best Loader and PAT file for my goals. I want a stable system, w/h expansion that I can expand to a bigger CPU and more ram. I want to play with features, but also need to know that my data is as safe as it can be. *I have a DROBO Right now, but it's been giving me headaches so i want a new primary Nas Server* ThX, Josh
