  1. I bought a Cooler Master MasterBox Q300L case and modified it, so it has now 8 hot-swap bays for HDDs. Total costs for case and the HDD cage 50€. My experience regarding noise is that you should look for extreme silent fans and HDDs. For example my NAS is very silent (my guess is about 14db) due to the fact that I put some sound-absorbing material on every surface that I could and chose silent fans and HDDs. Also keep an eye on vibration of the HDDs, which is also an annoying noise and can mess with the lifespan. Nonetheless you can hear it and so I placed it in another room where it doesn't bother me at all.
  2. Thanks for your effort! Now everything works
  3. I also tried your "guide" from above, but it didn't work. The output (INTEL Core i3 -4130 undefined) is still the same for the webinterface.

  5. I use an ASRock Z370M Pro4 motherboard (with 6 Sata Ports) and a LSI SAS 9211-8i (IT) host bus adapter (8 ports), which gives me 14 drives in total as well. You could go for two LSI SAS 9211-8i hba's in IT mode or search for another hba. Here's an extreme case you might want to look at
  6. Thanks, My setup is as follows: Volume 1 in RAID 10 with 4 HDDs (and two SSDs for read-write cache) Volume 2 in RAID 0 with 3 SSDs (that’s the volume I took the screenshot from. This Volume gets replicated every hour to Volume 1) Volume 3 Is a single HDD for backup purpose of Volume 1 Volume 4 is for HyperBackup of another Synology NAS The RAID 10 Volume reaches currently about 240 mb/s read and 210 mb/s write speeds without SSD cache (The SSD cache is in my opinion overrated -> that’s the reason I created a RAID 0 Volume which gets replicated every hour). My guess is, that if you add 2 more HDDs you would get 360 mb/s read and 315 mb/s write speeds. Side note: Unfortunately, Synology has decided to use m.2 PCI SSDs only as SSD cache, which means that you can't get the maximum speed out of every file transfer, and you need to create a Volume with SATA SSDs to get these numbers permanently. I will send you the link later.
  7. #1 I can't help you with that, but I would advise you to buy a NIC which is supported by Synology (E10G18-T1 for 1x 10 Gbit connection or Intel Ethernet Converged Network Adapter X540-T2 for 2x 10 Gbit connections) due to future update simplicty. With those cards it is just plug and play! #2 Yes it is possible. My current configuration is almost exactly as you described. 2 PCs with a direct connection to the Xpenology (2x 10 Gbit - X540-T2) and one (1 Gbit - i219V) connection from my NAS to my router. I set my IPs manually and followed Linus tech tips regarding 10 Gbit settings. Disable flow control, Jumbo 9000,... those are my network transfer speeds:

Outcome of the update: SUCCESSFUL - DSM version prior update: DSM 6.2.2-24922-update 3 - Loader version and model: JUN'S LOADER v1.03b - DS3615xs - Using custom extra.lzma: NO - Installation type: BAREMETAL - ASRock Z370M Pro4 / i3 8100 / LSI SAS 9211-8i (IT) / Intel X540-T2 dual 10 GBit NIC  - Additional comments: REBOOT REQUIRED
  9. I see. WOW, that's a great deal! Yeah you're right. I am also pleased with my Xpenology decision. Mine has so much more benefits (cheaper, more powerful, HOT-Swap of 8 drives, two 10Gbit ports, I am able to run it as gaming rig for LANs,...) compared to my previous Synology NAS. Nonetheless I am really appreciative for DSM which we only get from Synology.
  10. Hey Aydrian, why is a low profile nic a problem for you? I didn't face any install issues (It's just plug an play). There was only once a connection issue where DSM didn't recognise the connected client (Hackintosh1). I just rebootet the NAS and everything has worked fine again. I would only recommend the Intel X540 T2 if you can get it cheap and not for 300€+ Before you try anything you should however do a full backup (as you probably already know) and I even disconnected my HDDs and SSDs with my important data (Just in case). I cant speak for the realtek but the Intel I219-V is working flawlessly. Some screenshots for you:
  11. Glad to hear that. You should be fine with the E10G18-T1. I had that card once in my NAS, but I returned it due to the cheap Intel card which has two 10Gbit ports.
  12. Hello Aydrian, I got the Asus NIC working in 6.1.5 but never in 6.1.7. However I just bought a used Intel x540 T2 for 100€ which allows me to run DSM 6.2.1 without any problems. I would recommend you to switch your card to something Synology lists on their compatibly list, otherwise you always have to find a workaround for every (major) update. Cheers
  13. Outcome of the installation/update: SUCCESSFUL - DSM version prior update: Fresh install DSM 6.2.2-24922 - DS3615xs - Loader version and model: JUN'S LOADER v1.03b - DS3615xs - Using custom extra.lzma: NO - Installation type: BAREMETAL Asrock z370m PRO4 - Additional comments: Had to boot in legacy and edit the grub config before booting otherwise the NAS wouldn't show up in my network. Hardware: CPU i3-8100, InLine 76617G Sata controller, Intel X540-T2. Everything worked out of the box!
