  1. What drives are you using. Certain drives don't do well with raid
  2. I tried the NVMe cache with the 918+. HUGE WARNING- I used Western Digital SN750 black drives. I burned 2 of them within 3 months. I haven't tried other brands. Just a heads up
  3. total guess. Check in your bios for power states. I have mine set at a constant frequency. Just an idea
  4. your board has CSM. Set everything to UEFI boot.
  5. Success - without any install issues. Installed first time with reboot Loader version and type (918+/3615xs/3617xs): DS3617XS. Jun 1.03b DSM version in use (including critical update): DSM 6.2.3-24526 Update 3 Using custom modules/ramdisk? If yes which one?: Standard install in Legacy Hardware details (try being specific without giving long and useless technical details - model version, motherboard and NIC used should suffice): Machinist X99-K9 (Same as Machinist X99Z V102) E5-2699 V3 (HT disabled and restricted to 16 cores) 16gb - 4x4gb D
  6. 918+ or 3617 Check Bios settings- EFI or Legacy?
  7. As long as you are installing the same or higher version, it wont kill your data or config. Also, take a backup of your config onto your desktop in case you need it. If for some reason it doesn't work, reinstall the 3615. AND you will have the backup config to set all the settings back I am only referring to bare metal. I don't know about it as a VM
  8. I use this one. Intel D33682 NIC. Like $20 on bay. OR 10GB use Intel X540-T2. $120 on bay
  9. The 920+ is in a Raid 5, BRFS, 4x16TB Seagate Exos with 8GB ram. Use if for Plex. I got it on Amazon Prime day for a steal.
  10. I got it to work. The telnet thing was advanced recovery for it. If you do a simple upgrade from WD it was easy. The reason - "a fun and exciting challenge". Throw in the towel is not accurate. For me, I needed more from a NAS. Was it worth it? It worked better than the WD NAS software. IF I was to keep using the WD NAS, I would have left DSM on it. I went to a 920+ (recently) after using a 5 drive home built. Two drives were to small for my needs. "We do what we must because we can."
  11. 918+ needs UEFI to boot 3617xs needs Legacy Bios
  12. NVMe SSD's are not supported as a boot drive. SATA SSD's work will work as a boot drive. This is to the best of my knowledge.
  13. Just ordered 4 - 16TB Seagate Exos Drives. I filled the 4- 12tb's I was using. Paired with the 2246g and the Gen10+ with no installed cards. I am hoping I am ok with the power limits. peak HDD power is 10w each.
