  1. The outcome of the update: SUCCESSFUL DSM version prior to update: DSM 6.2.1-23824U6 Loader version and model: Jun v1.04b - DS918 Using custom extra.lzma: NO Installation type: baremetal ASUS Prime Z390-A - i3-8100 64GB Intel 10GbE NIC Additional comments: I was not sure if it would work, so I added a spare disk, turned off, disconnected all but new disk, turned on, upgraded to 6.22, restarted confirmed working, turned off, reconnected all disks, turned on, repaired failed system partition, restarted, 100% OK!

    DSM 6.2 Loader

    HP NICs built with Intel chipsets seem to work for me. Some HP NICs use Broadcom / Qlogic, and those are not likely to work.
  3. you can boot from a USB connected SSD, not from a sata connected ssd
  4. 1 x Giga PHY Intel® I219V, 1 x GigaLAN Intel® I211AT Nice to have both models of intel NIC so if you have the issue with i219, the i211 should still work! Have you tested to see if the turbo mode works? if not you are only getting 3.6GHz Agree with the USB header to hide the boot stick I would run the 918i so you can use hw transcoding it works so much better. 10GigE is so nice when you are moving big files around, doing backups etc. highly recommend it!!
  5. this was an error. I have 6.21-23824U6 my systemboard NIC is disabled, and I only have a single fiber to my dual port NIC I used the 2 synology MAC in the guide
  6. How can I help you out? I can send you a copy of a log or a config file?
  7. my main tip is when you have CPU like those, you don't need jumbo frames. From my PC (NVME SSD) to my Xpenology (6x Seagate iron wolf 7200RPM) I occasionally see spikes over 1GB per sec (windows file copy reported speed.) and often sustained transfers over 800-900MB/sec. The #1 performance issue once you get to 10gbe when if having enough disks that are quiet enough to dedicate themselves to the read / write you are performing. Even a tiny bit of other activity drops my read/write speeds into 400-600 range I started with a 1 gigE nic, then installed the 10G card later, so I am not 100% sure if it would have worked from the start, but I see no reason why it would not have worked.
  8. Yup, I have a lot of spare gear to test with. After being down trying to get the 9600K CPU hw transcoding working, I am enjoying a nice stable working system for a while I am hoping the drivers get updated to work with the 9600K CPU, and that the turbo mode issue is resolved at some point, but till then, the i3-8100 is working remarkably well.
  9. Yes the 10g works bare metal and no I didn’t have to add a driver. I am on 1.04b 918+ 5.21 with hardware transcoding working for plex on 390z chipset and i3-8100 cpu I have not yet tried the 6.22

    NVMe cache support

    I believe that it is saying that you do not have an add on card that adds m2 slots. I get the same message as you do.

    NVMe cache support

    Hoping for an update here. NetData sees my two NVME drives (8200PRO-256GB) but not Synology. root@diskstation:~# nvme list Node SN Model Namespace Usage Format FW Rev ---------------- -------------------- ---------------------------------------- --------- -------------------------- ---------------- -------- /dev/nvme0n1 2J1220060000 ADATA SX8200PNP 1 256.06 GB / 256.06 GB 512 B + 0 B R0906I /dev/nvme1n1 2J1220059000 ADATA SX8200PNP 1 256.06 GB / 256.06 GB 512 B + 0 B R0906I root@diskstation:~#
  12. What about Turbo? that CPU should scale up to 3.8 with Turbo. Is that supported under the 3615x/17x ?
  13. It appears the difference is actually the CPU. I swapped out the i5-9600K and in the i3-8100, and changed nothing else, hw transcoding (QSV) started working. given the fact that CPU turbo is not functional, the i3-8100 seems to be a pretty good choice.
