Need Confirmation on Hardware


Recommended Posts

Hi XPEnology Forum guys


I am sorry if i come of as a total nob in this post but well i am...


i've been wanting to get a NAS for some time now and was really set on the Synology 1813+ but it was brought to my attention that the Transcoding bit was horrible, and the QNAP is just too pricey.


so i found your forum and decided to build my one NAS with XPEnology witch btw im a huge fan of but i dont know what hardware is supported, i have found some topics that suggest some older hardware and i have seen in some of your signatures that you can use some newer chipsets, and this brings me to my question...


i have found some gear that i would like to if possible get approved for XPEnology.


i have found the following:


http://www.amazon.com/Asus-Z87-PRO-1150 ... B00CRJSXR4


if i have understood this correctly then its only the chipset and network card that has to be compatible right ? all other hardware just works ?


the rest of the gear if you are curious is:


http://www.amazon.com/Corsair-Vengeance ... B004CRSM4I



http://www.amazon.com/Intel-i5-4430-Qua ... B00CO8T9VC


Thansk in advance for your answers


P.S. i dont know if i posted this the right place and i am sorry if i have done so, as i stated i am a noob at this.

Hi mate,

Welcome on xpenology!


That system is a bit overkill for a normal nas. But if you want transcoding, all CPUs are doing the same thing. The difference comes in the transcoding time.

The ram is overkill. 4GB max is what you'll need.

Think about having a power friendly CPU.


All components seem to be compatible with DSM
