I have this machine:

 

970 Extreme3 R2.0 Motherboard

AMD FX(tm)-8350 Eight-Core Processor

23GB of DDR3 Unbuffered ram running at 800 MT/s (4 sticks)

Several HDD's (all SATA)

 

Planning on purchasing a SSD for the OS.

 

Would this work at all? Would I need to purchase another Motherboard and Processor?

 

Any help to point me in the right direction would be useful.

 

Thanks

Fantastic. Is the 918+ the most desirable I take it? My processor only has 8 threads, so that is not a concern.

 

In terms of compatibility here, if it does not work, will it just fail with a fatal error, or will it load with buggy software issues?

if the cpu is to old the 918+ kernel on the loader will simply not boot, a symptom is that you do not find it in network but that can also have other reasons

the only safe way to know is to have a serial port in the nas system and hook it by 0-modem cable to a console (like putty)

 

when trying 1.03b 3615/17 keep in mind it needs csm mode in bios and you need to boot from the non uefi usb boot device

if you have still problems you can try loader 1.03b 3615/17 with dsm 6.1 it supports uefi and csm

You better do a RAM test, as 23GB divided on 4 sticks, does not compute 🤔

I have 2x4GB and 2x8GB. The system readout gave me a number of 23GB. Perhaps it was rounding down, or was not including some overhead or something like that?

So what I am hearing is that 918+ is the most desirable and if i am unable to install then it probably means a compatibility issue and I should fall back to 3615/17. 

 

You guys are great looking forward to getting this set up.
