Possible CPU upgrade on custom build

Recommended Posts



My apologies if this isn't the correct thread for this question.


I'm currently running a custom build Xpenology system with the following hardware:
CPU: Intel Core i3 7100T

HDD: 4x2TB

Since I keep doing more and more with the system I'm missing a bit of CPU power.

I have an i5 6400T laying around his which is available for the upgrade. My concers are regarding the single thread performance of the i5 because I'm also running plex (usually 1x1080p stream)

I've attached a couple images to share the project as well :)

@wirdo Cool to see a "homebuildt" case :-)

Some Q's:

1 - What mainboard are you using?

2 - What version of DSM are you using?

3 - Do you have a Plex pass?

4 - Are you currently using HW transcoding?
